Mint Cookies & Cream Frozen Yogurt

Mint chocolate chip is good.
Cookies and cream is better. 

Mint Cookies and Cream is best. 

My favorite all-time ice cream flavor! It can be hard to find in the store. Edy's has it, but its rare that I want to pay the price in dollars or calories. 

We definitely love our froyo around here and its so easy. With just a few ingredients, you can have a sweet, refreshing treat in your bowl in about an hour. Use yogurt with a little fat content for a creamier texture.

Mint Cookies and Cream Frozen Yogurt:

3 cups 2% yogurt, Greek is best
1/2 cup plus 2 tablespoons sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla
3/4 teaspoon mint extract
2-3 drops green food coloring (optional)
15 chocolate sandwich cookies

Mix yogurt, sugar, vanilla and mint and refrigerate for at least 30 minutes. Toss the cookies in a zip bag and lightly smash. 

Put yogurt mixture into your ice cream machine and process according to the manufacturer's directions. In the last minute of churning, add the cookies. 

If you can't wait, enjoy your froyo immediately. Otherwise, transfer the ice cream to a freezer container and allow to set up in the freezer.
