3 Ingredient Pineapple Frozen Yogurt

08.28.14

Because it is still summer.  And because I like to make you drool early in the morning.

Pineapple Frozen Yogurt-3 We talked about this Ellenos yogurt the other day.  Delish.  Get it.  It won’t disappoint you, it’s not a high school boy that doesn’t like you back despite your super awesome flirting skillz (I once said “lol” OUT LOUD when trying to flirt in middle school… like said the actual letters in a conversation WITH A BOY – clearly I’m still haunted by this encounter).  

Untitled2 I think it’s really weird that I’m all like “it’s still summer give me the frozen yogurt” because I’m actually over summer and I’m not even a huge froyo lover {GASP}.  I’ll get it, but I really have to be in the mood for it you know?  As for being over summer, welllll that’s just because I’m over the tourists really.  But I’m not ready to say goodbye to the beautiful Seattle sun.  Can we bottle up the sunlight and put it in a jar for a rainy day?  Is that a thing?  

No? …. are you sure?  positive?  ok.

Untitled I’m glad one of us is sane.  (I’m clearly the sane one incase you didn’t pick up on that.)

Back to flirting.  You know what I hate about boys (besides the cooties issue)?  They make you nervous.  I remember being PETRIFIED of boys and “dating,” ugh punch me in the face.  You have to be like really awesome all the time and try not to be awkward.  It’s a lot of work.  You know what’s not a lot of work?  This froyo.  And it’ll love you even when you’re really awkward.  And you DEFINITELY don’t have to be nervous around it.  

Pineapple Frozen Yogurt-2 It’s kind of like the perfect medley of sweet and sarcastic tart.  I can’t say enough about how wonderful it is.  I think I’ve said all the things.  Wait.  Have I mentioned it can never get you pregnant??  At least according to my high school health teacher.  I don’t really know where the whole high school/memory lane thing is coming from, it has nothing to do with this froyo…. was froyo even a thing when I was in high school?  

Pineapple Frozen Yogurt But since we’re on the subject, before I tell you about how to stuff your face with this deliciousness, let me tell you about my first date.  {cue the eye rolls}

I literally was so nervous I MADE MY MOM DROP ME OFF AND PICK ME UP.  The boy had his license.  He could drive.  He wanted to drive me.  My mom told me I should let him drive me.  I’m pretty sure I referenced something about Drew Barrymore & Riding in Cars with Boys and said ABSOLUTELY NOT.  (I can’t remember but I think I might have even cried to get my mom to agree.  I’ll check the facts and get back to you.)  He wasn’t a serial killer.  It’s not like I was scared for him to know where I lived.  It wasn’t a big deal.  But holy crap, 15 year old me thought it was the end of the world.  Like I was going to throw up in his car from nerves or something.  I’ve got nothin.  I’m so sorry to that boy {let’s hope he’s not reading this}.   

Pineapple Frozen Yogurt-4 I hope you feel like that honey is coming at YOUR FACE.  Because it basically is.  It’s delicious!  Don’t be scared.  (Also, if you don’t have local blackberry flavored honey you can borrow mine!  or just use normal honey & throw in a few blackberries [holy beautiful color I’m imagining].  or any other flavor.  or skip the honey and sub in vodka… just kidding don’t do that.  only kind of kidding.)

Author:
Ingredients
  • 2 cups frozen pineapple chunks
  • ¼ cup plain greek yogurt
  • 1 tbsp blackberry honey *see notes
Instructions
  1. Add the frozen pineapple, greek yogurt, and honey to the food processor. Process until creamy, approximately 3-5 minutes.
  2. Serve immediately (topped with a nice honey drizzle, because COME ON) or store in an airtight container in your freezer for up to a month. *see notes
Notes
Don't have blackberry honey? Totally fine. Substitute whatever kind of honey you have! Or use plain honey and throw in a few fresh blackberries THE COLORSSS #dead
If you're freezing the yogurt, I recommend letting it defrost for a few minutes before trying to eat it again. It loses its creamy texture when stored in the freezer!
