Coffee Frozen Yogurt
It’s funny how much the weather can affect us… The other day, I woke up at 6 am and went on a run and felt great. It was bright and sunny when I woke up, so it was easy to start my day early. I planned to do the same this morning, but when my alarm went off it looked so foggy and gray outside that I couldn’t bring myself to even get out of my bed. All day yesterday, the weather was the same – gray and gloomy. So we had a really lazy Sunday. Lately we have been searching for a new TV because the one we have is probably like 20 years old, and Fabi thought it would be nice to upgrade to a plasma flat screen. The problem is that they are in the thousands for a decent size :/ Yesterday it would have been really nice to have one, though!
On Saturday it was sunny, so I made some coffee frozen yogurt. I don’t have an ice cream maker (I really need to get one of those soon! Any recommendations??), so I tried my best and it surprisingly came out pretty good! If you have an ice cream maker, it will probably turn out better than just putting it in the freezer like I did. The texture is not as creamy as the kind you get when you go to a frozen yogurt shop, but it was still a refreshing treat on a warm summer day. I love the combination of chocolate and coffee, so the chocolate chips are a must for me in this recipe. It freezes very hard, especially if left overnight, so you have to let it sit well before you want to enjoy some. This is always a challenge for me, because when I get a craving for something I need to have it right away! Like last night for example…when I wanted some frozen yogurt, I just microwaved it for 30 seconds and it worked out. It is also important to use espresso or strong coffee. I don’t think drip coffee will give you the same depth in flavor, but you can try it…
Creamy Coffee Smoothie Recipe with Bananas, Coconut Milk and Flax Seeds
This recipe makes 3 smaller servings or 2 larger ones.
- 8oz cool coffee
- 8oz chilled coconut milk (I keep several of these cans in the fridge so I always have chilled coconut milk)
- 1 ripe bananas (frozen prefer)
- 1 tbsp ground flax seeds or flax meal
- 1/2 tsp ground cinnamon
- 1 tsp cocoa powder (optional)
- 4 to 6 ice cubes (optional)
Cut the banana into 1” chunks.
Make sure your coffee is cool before making the smoothie.
Using a smoothie blender, add all the ingredients: banana, coffee, coconut milk, flax, cinnamon and cocoa powder.
Pulse a few times. If you’re adding ice, add it now.
Pulse a few more times and blend until smooth.
Transfer it to your favorite mug and enjoy!
If you’re making this and heading out, place it in an insulated bottle so it remains cool. I love this insulated coffee mug.
The great thing about this recipe is that it will give you that energy boost and it tastes amazing. Perfect for us moms!

Greek Yogurt Coffee Cake
This recipe came about by using what I had on hand in order to satisfy one of those &ldquoI-must-have-it-now&rdquo cravings. Do you ever get one of those? They happen to me more often than I&rsquod probably like to admit. 😉
For some reason, I&rsquove been dreaming of coffee cake for the past couple of weeks and have been telling myself that I really needed to just try my hand at making one. I had a couple of recipes that I&rsquove been eyeing for a long time inside some of my old church cookbooks (those are my FAVORITE cookbooks, by the way). But, when I finally started to gather all of my ingredients, I realized I was missing one thing that both of those recipes called for: sour cream.
Now, I&rsquom not really a fan of dragging both of my kids out of the house and to the store just for one little thing, so I decided to see if there was a way I could improvise. I raided my fridge and suddenly the light bulb in my head went off when I spotted one of my favorite foods, and favorite ingredients to cook with: Greek yogurt!
I wasn&rsquot sure how the coffee cake would turn out, but I&rsquom VERY pleased to say that it&rsquos AMAZING! The Greek yogurt makes it nice and moist and I just love a good streusel topping.
Now, the Greek yogurt isn&rsquot really adding any health benefits, seeing as how there&rsquos still plenty of butter and sugar in here. BUT, it really does something nice to the cake and gives it a wonderful moist texture. And the drizzle of vanilla glaze at the end just takes it over the edge! Man, I&rsquod like this for breakfast, lunch, dinner, or anytime of day. Hand me another cup of coffee, a slice of this, and I&rsquom good!
I actually made this coffee cake twice in two days because my two year got a little stealthy and stuck her hand into the first one I made and gobbled it down like it was going out of style! It was beyond repair as far as picture-taking goes so I made a second one. The second time I decided to try making it in my springform pan and I REALLY liked that better than the bundt pan I used the first go-round. It just made it easier to get out of the pan, which made for prettier pictures. So I recommend making this using a springform pan if you have one available.
7. Plain YogurtLara Taniguchi
Don't be ashamed to buy plain yogurt over Greek it's often cheaper and isn't as strong in flavor. For any recipe that calls for Greek yogurt, you can substitute exactly the same amount of plain yogurt. It's slightly less creamy and tangy, but it's essentially Greek yogurt's cousin.
#SpoonTip: You can even turn plain yogurt into Greek yogurt with this easy trick.
You don't need to empty your wallet or clear out your fridge for a tub of Greek yogurt. You also don't need to deprive yourself of everything that's tangy and creamy in the world. Use Greek yogurt substitutes that you already have on hand, and have fun experimenting in the kitchen.
5. Nutella Banana Espresso Shake
Think you don&rsquot have time to make breakfast in the a.m.? Think again. This easy morning masterpiece calls for just four (!!) ingredients plus ice. You can even lower the levels of sugar by making homemade Nutella (with fiber-filled dates!) ahead of time.

How to make frosting from Greek yogurt
A healthier version of “cream cheese” frosting for your cakes, cupcakes, and cookies. Learn how to make frosting from Greek yogurt.
- 2 cups Greek yogurt (may use plain or vanilla, depending on how sweet you want your frosting)
- 1 cup powdered sugar
- Line a small sieve with coffee filters (I suggest 1 filter per 1 cup of yogurt). Spoon yogurt over coffee filter and smooth evenly. Place over a large bowl. Refrigerate overnight, allowing yogurt to drain into bowl.
- Discard draining liquid. Spoon drained yogurt into a medium bowl beat in powdered sugar with an electric mixer until smooth.
I recommend refrigerating cakes/cupcakes after topping with this frosting.

It's super filling (holds me over until lunch), low in calories, high in protein, and the perfect morning pick-me-up! To be honest, it's not very sweet, but I'm a black coffee drinker, so it's absolutely perfect for me.
Cut this iced coffee recipe in half to make one small serving…
Because this energy-boosting iced coffee recipe only has about 115 calories per serving, don't be afraid to add a little plain greek yogurt or peanut butter to the recipe if you want to drink it as a meal replacement. Greek yogurt makes this recipe a bit more tart and luscious– Oh, so good!!
