Here’s the printable recipe for your dessert making fun;
- Vanilla Frozen Yogurt
- 4 Oreo cookies
- 1 tablespoon chocolate syrup
- 1 cup fresh strawberries, sliced
- 2 tablespoons honey
- 2 teaspoons tapioca
Wash, hull and slice the strawberries to measure one packed cup of sliced strawberries.
Place the strawberries in a mini food processor and pure them well. Pour the strawberries into a saucepan and stir in 2 tablespoons of honey and 2 teaspoons of tapioca. Over medium to low heat, cook the mixture stirring regularly until the mixture is heated and has thickened. Let it cool completely to create a strawberry gel.
Once the mixture is cooled, put it in a cake piping utensil with a wide open writers tip.
Crush the cookies in a mini food processor. Dump the cookie crumbs into a bowl. Using a spoon, stir in the tablespoon of chocolate syrup until the cookie crumbs are well coated. Divide the cookie mixture and pour it onto two plates.
Using a large ice cream scoop, scoop the vanilla frozen yogurt and place it on top of the crushed cookie mixture.
Use the strawberry gel to create baseball lines on the frozen yogurt.
