No doubt many of you are familiar with Halo Top ice cream. It is a higher protein, low calorie frozen treat that tastes pretty amazing! While it is on plan for Trim Healthy Mamas, it is only recommended for occasional use. I do not eat it very often, but when I saw that my Walmart had recently stocked several new flavors, I knew it was time to try it again! There were Red Velvet, Pistachio, Black Cherry, and OATMEAL COOKIE. I chose the oatmeal cookie! Oh, it was delicious!
Thats when I started thinking . . . could I make a THM version of this that tasted similar? Since oats are an E fuel, I knew I could not use my traditional ice cream base (heavy cream). So I turned to Greek Yogurt as my “ice cream” base. This of course bumps up the protein content as well. It very well could be that you could eat this for breakfast! YES!
Since this is “frozen yogurt” and not ice cream, it does have a tangy flavor. Much more tangy than ice cream, but not at all unpleasant. This frozen yogurt only has 71 calories per serving, so it is very light. It also has 7 grams of protein per serving.
Now, technically, the amount of oats in this recipe fall into the Fuel Pull category (only 5 net carbs per serving). However, I prefer to always use oats as an E fuel so I do not get confused or cause confusion for others. This would make an awesome light dessert after an E meal!
So what do you need for this delicious frozen treat?
2 Cups 0% Plain Greek Yogurt
1/3 Cup Gentle Sweet
1/2 Teaspoon Cinnamon
1 Teaspoon Vanilla
1/2 Tablespoon Vegetable Glycerin (Optional)
1/2 Cup Rolled Oats (Uncooked)
- In a blender, combine all ingredients except the oats.
- Blend until pureed.
- Add oats and pulse blend just enough to incorporate oats.
- Pour into an ice cream maker bowl and freeze according to ice cream manufacturers' directions. (Mine took 20 minutes)
- Store in freezer.
