To make frozen yogurt and cookie sandwiches, all you need is a pint of frozen yogurt and your favorite homemade or store-bought cookies. Line a cookie or baking sheet with wax paper, and place the cookies on top. Add a scoop of frozen yogurt on top before sandwiching with another cookie. While the frozen yogurt is still soft, roll the sandwiches in your choice of toppings, including sprinkles, crushed cookies or candy. Place the sheet back in the freezer until the yogurt hardens before serving.
Frozen Yogurt Pie
As long as you have frozen yogurt and a store-bought graham cracker pie shell, you can make a delicious pie. Let the yogurt sit out for 15 to 20 minutes or until softened. If you’re in a hurry, place the frozen yogurt in the microwave for 10 seconds at a time until softened. Use a spatula to layer the yogurt inside the crust and to smooth out the top before freezing. To make this pie even more delicious, mix the frozen yogurt with chopped up candy bars or your favorite fruit and drizzle with chocolate or caramel sauce before serving.
Yogurt and Fruit Trifle
Make an impressive trifle that would look right at home on any dinner party table with frozen yogurt, fresh fruit, whipped cream and cake. Chop a homemade or store-bought angle food or pound cake into one-inch pieces. Place a layer of the cake in the bottom of the dish, top with an even layer of frozen yogurt and a layer of fresh fruit. Continue layering the ingredients until you reach the top. Freeze for several hours or overnight, and top with whipped cream right before serving. Use these recipes to make delicious desserts everyone will love from frozen yogurt.
