How about a Labor Day present from Reading and Recipes?

For little old me?

Yeah, that’s right, just for you.

What kind of present?

How about a yummy frozen dessert that’s skinny, healthy, inexpensive, and easy to make?

Lead me to it!

Well, you’re there. This Strawberry Cheesecake Frozen Yogurt is all of those things–a Labor Day present from R&R!

Aww, isn’t that sweet!

And we’ll throw in a story for good measure–Brooke and Leah eavesdropping on the world from their hideaway under the pier.

A yummy dessert and a story too?

Our Labor Day present just for you! (Might almost think it was your birthday . . . .)

Strawberry Cheesecake Frozen Yogurt

6 ounces strawberry Greek yogurt

2 ounces cream cheese, room temperature

1/4 teaspoon vanilla extract

1/4 cup milk or cream

1 cup chopped fresh strawberries, divided

1 8-ounce container whipped topping (such as Cool Whip), room temperature

2 sheets graham crackers, broken up into small pieces

Add the yogurt, cream cheese, vanilla, milk, and 1/2 cup strawberries to a blender. Puree the ingredients together. Add the whipped topping to a mixing bowl. Pour the pureed strawberry mixture over the whipped topping and mix ingredients together. Lastly, fold in the remaining 1/2 cup of strawberries and graham cracker pieces. Once everything is combined, pour the mixture into a container with a lid. Place the container in the freezer for 2-4 hours, stirring every hour.

Once the ice cream reaches your desired consistency, scoop the ice cream into individual serving bowls. This ice cream is best served the same day to ensure a smooth and creamy texture. If you have any leftovers, cover and store them in the freezer for up to a week. Remove any leftovers from the freezer 15-20 minutes prior to eating to allow the ice cream to soften.

Serves 3-4.
