Oh, this is going to be trouble.

Being able to make homemade ice cream and froyo anytime I want it? Trou.ble.

I’ve got a a cool summer-is-coming giveaway for you guys today!

My friend and might-as-well-be-neighbor, Susan from She’s Becoming DoughMesstic, is having a big week this week – her first cookbook comes out tomorrow and I was lucky enough to get a sneak peek.

Since I needed to help with quality control and all that, I made my first ever batch of homemade frozen yogurt this weekend.

Holy moly.

Storebought does not compare at all! This froyo was exactly how I like my frozen yogurt – not too sweet, but not too tart.

And…I added chocolate chips because vanilla is always better with a little chocolate.

If you’ve got an ice cream maker or have plans to get one or want to try your hand at the ice-cream-in-a-bag trick, this book has just about every recipe you could want.

I’ve got a signed copy of Susan’s book to giveaway to someone – and I can’t wait for you to try this frozen yogurt recipe, too!

To enter:

  • Tell me your favorite flavor of ice cream – I’m a mint chocolate chip girl. But it has to be green!

Good luck!

Frozen yogurt is okay for lunch, right?

Thanks to KitchenAid for the ice cream attachment to try the recipe! The book and attachment were sent to me to try – opinions, as always, are my own. The froyo is gone already and I made it a day ago…so yeah, it was awesome.

    Fudge ripple. I love using my kitchenaid for ice cream. Jello puddings work great for ice cream, too. I love the chocolate pudding, white chocolate, cheesecake, there are many puddings flavor to try. Yum!

    Brandi….I love homemade ice cream but haven’t had it since I was a kid! Had one failed attempt at it last summer when I pulled out an ice cream maker given to us by my hubby’s aunt/uncle. I think I was too impatient and didn’t let the container stay in the freezer long enough before hand. I saw the old fashioned ice cream maker from my childhood (ice and rock salt) and wondering if that would just be easier. I don’t have a lot of freezer room for those containiers. :) What are your thoughts?

    Would love to try my hand at it again this year, and Susan’s new book would be perfect. My favorite flavor is chocolate chip cookie dough.

    Yummy! I was just looking at this book earlier actually. It looks so good! I’m totally a mint chocolate chip girl too! Although I don’t care if it’s green and I’m picky about the mint flavor. Some brands just taste off to me.

    I know, right?? A friend of mine just hand-me-downed her iced-cream maker, and I’ve been going nuts looking for the perfect recipes to use in it. I love vanilla iced cream, but of course I’m a sucker for coffee, too…

    Heidi — May 16, 2012 at 1:04 am

    For me it has to be Superman icecream every time. If I go to coldstone creamery though it must be their sweet cream with some cinnamon, toasted coconut and a few pecans!

    Mint Chocolate Cookie (with Oreos… or mint Newman O’s?!) would be my favorite. If I win the book I might have a problem…. then I’ll have to buy an ice cream attachment for my KitchenAid stand mixer. If you give a mouse a cookie…
