During a recent frozen foods sale, I got some Yoplait Smoothies for quite cheap. Cheaper than I could find them on a regular basis, which was frustrating since we LOVED them. (And especially since our newly cleared clutter area allows us to get to the food processor easily!)
I’ve always loved smoothies. I’ve even tried to make them before, but they never turned out the way I wanted them to taste. So, I analyzed the frozen pre-packaged variety to try to determine why theirs was so much better than mine.
Theirs contains little frozen cubes of yogurt. No ice is required. You just add milk and blend. In the past mine were always watery from the ice I would add, or not cold enough because I would try just using frozen fruit with yogurt from the fridge.
So we spooned plain vanilla yogurt (2.38 at Walmart for the big carton) into ice cube trays (1.30 or so for a set of three) and covered the trays with foil and put them in the freezer.
I’m also linking this up at Kelly’s Korner for her dessert link-up.
