I've been in a smoothie making mood lately, and this recipe was born out of my inability to finish an entire smoothie in one sitting. When I make a smoothie, I make enough for two servings -- sometimes Frog Prince enjoys his half, and other times, he'd rather have a cup of tea.
I poured half of the berry smoothie into our ice cream storage containers and set it in the freezer. In a matter of 3-4 hours in the freezer, I had our own creamy version of frozen yogurt made without an ice cream maker!
Now, when I make a berry smoothie, I enjoy half right away and freeze the other half. Then, I'll pop that frozen half in my lunch box and take it with me to my office and stick it in the fridge. In time for a mid-morning snack the smoothie is now partially thawed and makes a great bowl of frozen yogurt I can enjoy in my office. This really works well for me as it switches things up in my lunch and it's an easy way to increase the fruits I eat each day.
