I came up with this idea last year when I was craving a sweet treat but didn't have anything on hand. This kind of snack is the best because I truly believe...
1.) It's utterly more satisfying when you make something yourself.
2.) Waiting for that snacks makes it all the more satisfying in the end.
I'm typing this up, licking my lips in anticipation of my night time snack. Now when I say waiting, I mean waiting about an hour and that's a long time to wait for snack, especially a single serving of a snack. But it's worth it, in that hour I could have raided my pantry and regretted chowing down a bag of chips or one of the husbands chocolate cupcakes. Instead I got up every 20 minutes and stirred my bowl of watermelon ice sneaking taste during the freezing process.
And now I'm enjoying my snack before bed and I can feel good about my choice. No regrets here!
- 1 cup (152g) of cubed watermelon
- 1 container of light yogurt the 4-8oz non-fat flavored kind (I used strawberry)
Place the watermelon and yogurt in the blender. Puree.
Pour the mixture in a bowl and place in the freezer for an hour to an hour and half. Stir it about every 20 minutes to help it freeze uniformly or the edges will freeze solid and the center will still be liquid.
The nutritional info will vary based on the brand of yogurt you choose.
Update: If you do accidentally freeze it totally, it takes a long time to defrost. I think I had it one the counter for two hours before soften enough to eat!
