peanut butter frozen yogurt. (late night food.)

latenite2

Well, I don't think I need to explain TOO thoroughly. We had a friend over for dinner, and dinner turned into beers. After the first few were tossed back, somebody said something about a peanut butter milkshake, and then people kept bringing it up. "I need a peanut butter milkshake! Someone make me a peanut butter milkshake!"

So, I got crafty and did the next best thing. I pulled out a quart of plain yogurt, a jar of peanut butter, and a honey bear. Into a bowl, I plopped a few large dollops of yogurt, a few large dollops of peanut butter, and squeezed a decent amount of honey. I whisked it all together, and then into the ice cream maker it went. I cranked it and cranked it for a few minutes until it was about the consistency of a firm milkshake, and then I spooned it into tiny bowls and sliced up some bananas on the side. A crowning achievement? Maybe, but I was a lot more excited when I remembered that I had chocolate-covered pretzel balls in the cupboard. What we ended up with was a delectable, lightly sweet dessert that was totally healthy (I mean, lowfat yogurt! Come on!) and super yummy.

Oh my, that sounds like the PERFECT late-night snack (or anytime snack, haha).

Man- you're resourceful! I'm not so good with the throwing a few things in a bowl approach- usually goes badly for me- but I admire those skills in others. =) Nice hoodie from Vérité your friend is wearing, by the way! =) Funny, because I totally mentioned that place on my last blog! I miss Seattle sometimes!

This sounds awesome- I have to try it, too ealry for the beer, so I'll go straight for the pb yogurt. I have to ask, because I can't zoom into see, what does the tatoo say on the hand? Is the other one a key- because if it is that is so funny (I am always looking for my keys)?! No yogurt- figures, out to the store.......
