It’s official…I’m 25! I officially feel like an adult, although I’ve been putting off admitting that for awhile. I had a wonderful weekend of festivities including lots of friends, delicious food, and probably a few too many drinks. Last week, in preparation for the big 2-5, I made myself a little birthday treat. This Roasted Banana and Brown Sugar Greek Fro Yo might have been the best frozen yogurt I have ever made, and the perfect way to celebrate my quarter century mark!
With only 4 ingredients, this frozen yogurt had a ton of banana flavor (I think roasting the bananas really helps with that). It was incredibly creamy, and had just enough tartness from the greek yogurt. I was a little sad that I made this on a night I had friends coming over, because that meant I had to share (something, as a youngest child, I’ve never really mastered).
Nutritional Highlights: Greek yogurt is SO hot right now, and for good reason. Not only is it delicious, creamy, and tart, but it also has tons more protein than regular yogurt. In this recipe I used 2% so it would be low fat but maintain some of it’s creaminess. I used plenty of ripe bananas which are packed with potassium, fiber, and B6. I used brown sugar, which might not be the healthiest thing ever but I still think it’s a lot less sugar than you’ll find at your local fro yo joint. I topped it off (pun intended) with some healthy-ish toppings including dark chocolate chips, crushed graham crackers, and chopped nuts. Definitely the healthiest dessert of my many desserts during this birthday weekend
