While searching the Internet for frozen yogurt recipes, I came across the one that was featured on the Biggest Loser t.v. show. The recipe can be found HERE.
Each contestant listed their favorite food and a chef came and made it healthy for them.
I thought this would be perfect, as ice cream is my husbands favorite food ~
I used my homemade yogurt with skim milk and this is my result:
A slightly thinner yogurt, but otherwise good for a smoothie or ice cream.
you pour it over gelatin/milk mixture.
Two drops of green food coloring and 5 drops of peppermint OIL were added. (Recipe calls for 1/4 t. peppermint extract).
When it was almost finished, some mini-chocolate chips were added.
The ice cream nearly overflowed, so I added the rest of the chips in by hand.
The ice cream was rock hard (due to the high water content), so I had to thaw it out a little.
While it was creamy, pepperminty, not too sweet, and had the right amount of chocolate chips, something was off.
As is "after taste" off.
The only changes I made to the recipe was using my homemade yogurt and using oil instead of extract. Hmmmmm...
This was one of those recipes that I debated....Do I post? Do I not post?
I asked hubby and he said, "Do not post it."
Sorry sweetie, but I'm posting it, 'cause I want other people to know ~
I like making recipes that have been made and have a REVIEW. While I found this recipe on a couple of sites, I only found two reviews.

Another blogger made this recipe and changed by adding Stevia and granulated sugar in place of the Splenda.
Could it be the Splenda? I'm not sure.
Is this worth making? Not in my book. My family, however, raved about the Chocolate Frozen yogurt, which I will be making again. As for a Mint Chocolate Chip ice cream, I trust David Lebovitz...
