Mix Your Own Frozen Oreo and Banana Chocolate Yogurt
Frozen Oreo Chocolate Yogurt
Yogurt, Bananas, Hot Chocolate Mix and Oreos
This Desert is something I came up with a few months ago. It was late at night and a friend of mine asked me if I had anything chocolate to eat. Well, I didn't. However I did have some packages of hot cocoa mix. After looking through my kitchen I picked out three things that I had on hand and mixed them together to see what would happen. A few weeks later I made this again but added bananas to it also. The result is a very easy desert that anyone can make. It requires on skill, no cooking and very little prep time.
The base of this desert as I've made it is a form of yogurt. The yogurt that I get here in China is more of a very thick milk than the yogurt that people would be used to in the states. I believe this would work just as well with a solid yogurt. I also think that other bases could be easily substituted as well such as whipped cream.
Oreos and My Favorite Coffee Mug
- 2 cups yogurt
- 12 (one sleeve) Oreo Cookies, Smashed
- 2 Bananas, Sliced
- 2 packets Hot Chocolate Mix
- Fill a gallon sized freezer bag with a package of Oreo cookies. There should be about twelve. Squeeze most of the air out sealing the bag and lay it flat on a table.
- Using a coffee mug or other blunt object, smash the cookies.
- In a large bowl pour about two cups of yogurt.
- Pour two packets of hot chocolate mix into the yogurt. Stir with a fork until all the little bits of hot chocolate are broken up and mixed in.
- Pour the bag of broken Oreo cookies into the yogurt. Mix these in with the fork.
- Slice the bananas and mix them into the yogurt.
- Place the bowl in the freezer for about an hour.

This is of course a very easy recipe. And some may argue that you could easily just buy chocolate yogurt instead of mixing hot chocolate mix into yogurt. This of course is very true. My response to this though would be to simply use what you have.
I think that this would be something fun to make with children. Or rather, to let them make with you helping them. It is simple enough that children would be able to follow the directions and it would help you keep them occupied with something.
This of course could also easily be altered. I would love to add cashews or pecans to this.
