2-Ingredient Chocolate Frozen Yogurt

This post may as well be titled LIFE HACK: 2-Ingredient Frozen Yogurt orrrr THIS IS NOT ACTUALLY YOGURT AT ALL orrrr HOW DID I NOT KNOW ABOUT THIS SOONER?!

But it’s not. I titled it 2-Ingredient Chocolate Frozen Yogurt. Because that my friends, is precisely what it is. Except for the yogurt part.

According to Merriam-Webster, the definition of yogurt is as follows:

yo·gurt

noun \ˈyō-gərt\

: a food that is made when bacteria is added to milk and that is often flavored and chilled

And there herein lies our problem. There is no dairy in this recipe. Not one single drop. But it tastes JUST like frozen yogurt. And has virtually the same texture. So I guess I will have to use quotes around the word yogurt as to not confuse anyone.

So how did the idea for this 2-Ingredient Chocolate Frozen “Yogurt” come to me you ask? Great question.

It is actually one half of a different recipe I was trying out this afternoon. Salted Pumpkin Caramel Chocolate “Ice Cream” Bites, but again, no actual dairy was used (thus the quotations – you’re catching on now right?!). They are currently in the freezer to set, and I cannot begin to tell you how excited I am to try one in a few hours!

I wrote a post awhile back about scrambled eggs not sitting well with me (especially when cheese is involved). Ice cream is another food that my body just does not agree with. The other day I bought a carton of organic cookies and cream ice cream. It was on sale, and although I never crave ice cream, it looked real good. The last two days I’ve had a tiny little ramekin of it, and although tasty, it leaves me feeling insanely dehydrated, gassy, bloated, and just down right miserable. And thus I remembered why I don’t care so much for ice cream. I read somewhere that when dairy is frozen it is harder to digest. You don’t need to tell me that twice.

So today, I’m making dairy-free vegan ice cream treats (and yes, I realize it is 20 degrees outside). And although I’m already planning to post the Salted Pumpkin Caramel Chocolate “Ice Cream” Bites soon after, I couldn’t help but post this deliciously healthy alternative to frozen yogurt right. this. minute.

I think you (and your bellies!) will thank me.
