American Flag TCBY Frozen Yogurt Dessert

Finding healthy desserts that will wow a crowd can be tough, especially when you have kids in the mix.  My kids are flavor snobs when it comes to dessert - they stick to their favorites.  I can't blame them as I'm a big fan of mint chip ice cream and cookies & cream ice cream too.

I recently had the chance to head down to my local Walmart and purchase TCBY frozen novelties treats.  Frozen yogurt has changed, it's no longer the bland, healthy option.  You can now find your favorite childhood favorites with a healthy twist!

I was floored by the choices and found myself wanting to buy one of everything!  You can follow along on the shopping trip with pictures here

I stocked up on frozen yogurt sandwiches (my husbands favorite), mint chocolate chip frozen yogurt, strawberry swirl and cookies & cream.  Being low in calories, low in fat and full of the probiotics that are so healthy in yogurt - it's a great way to get your dessert cravings in!

For the 4th of July we had a small barbecue celebration with family and friends.  The plan was to have a quiet evening by the fire pit, but instead we were pleasantly surprised to have a number of large firework displays we could see right from our backyard!

I have to admit I was most excited for my dessert creation.  It was super easy to make and was so delicious!  Everyone loved it!

It's super simple to create, here's how! 

American Flag Frozen Yogurt Dessert

Ingredients:
  • TCBY frozen yogurt (most varieties work - it's a taste preference, I used cookies & cream)
  • 9 frozen blueberries- thawed slightly
  • cherry preserves (other red berry preserves work also)
  • Gold edible stars

Directions:

Use nine frozen blueberries and line them up in three rows of three.  Carefully take three TCBY frozen yogurt scoops (I used cookies & cream) and line them up around the blueberries in an L shape.  Drizzle a red berry preserve (I used cherry preserves) in several lines over the frozen yogurt scoops to represent the lines on the flag.  Then sprinkle with edible gold stars (you can find these where cake supplies are sold).

Cute idea! i didn't know tcby was still around. I'll have to look for it next time I'm at the store.

Awesome! I actually really prefer frozen yogurt over ice cream if it's flavored (well...the right flavors...ha!). And fruit with frozen yogurt is just icing on the cake...I didn't know frozen yogurt sandwich type desserts existed...I'll have to look for these...thanks!
