Frozen Yogurt = a Fun Baseball Season Treat

Frozen Yogurt for Baseball Season Fun

It’s the beginning of a new season and after the game there’s nothing like a little family fun!  I served up a frozen yogurt using the Greek Yogurt to create a baseball with a homemade strawberry puree gel for the finishing touches.  It’s really pretty simple…

Frozen Yogurt for Baseball Season Fun

Step 1:  Pop some vanilla Greek Yogurt into the freezer.  I happened to be tasting the new Dannon Light & Fit to compare flavors & had it in my refrigerator, but there are quite a few options on the market & you can pick your family favorite.  It’s almost better to freeze it 3/4 of the way and then scoop.  If you freeze it solid, you will have to let it set in order to scoop.

Step 2:  Grind up a cookie per baseball in a mini chopper or food processor to create the dirt affect.  You can use a gluten free chocolate cookie that can be found in the gluten free aisle at your grocery store, chocolate graham crackers or a cream filled cookie like an oreo.

Step 3: Instead of using the frosting gel to create the seams on the baseball I made a strawberry puree & it’s really quick and easy.  Place 1 cup of frozen strawberries, that have started to thaw, in a mini chopper and puree them.  Place the pureed strawberries into a sauce pan and begin to heat it over low heat.  If the strawberries are tart add 2 tablespoons of honey.  Add 1 tablespoon of cornstarch and stir continuously until the mixture thickens.  Remove it from the heat and let it cool completely.
