Last week I received a HUGE package from Chobani! I never knew such perishable items could be shipped so quickly, and in bulk…but I guess it can be done!
What a delivery! Chobani was kind enough to send me 6 huge containers of greek yogurt. I am so excited to try them all: Mango, Peach, Chocolate Chunk Blueberry, Pineapple, and Black Cherry- yum! I have been searching various recipes and found several for inspiration.
My husband loves mango anything, so when I saw a recipe for Mango Ice Cream, I figured I could try making it with Greek Yogurt (because Greek yogurt can be subbed for anything!). It was very easy, and I don’t even have an ice cream maker. You should plan to be around the house though for about 3-4 hours, because you have to mix this every hour or so to avoid ice crystals from forming on the yogurt.
- 2-3 mangoes reserve 1/4 cup for topping if desired, peeled** and diced
- 1/2 cup sugar
- 1 cup Chobani Mango Greek Yogurt
Place mangoes in a shallow bowl and cover with the sugar. Cover with plastic wrap and let sit for 1-2 hours, or until sugar is absorbed.
Dump sugary mangoes into food processor or blender, and puree until smooth (or leave a few clumps if you like chunks of mango). Add 1 cup Chobani Mango Greek Yogurt, blend to combine.
Pour into a bowl (or ice cream maker if you have one), and cover with an air tight cover (I used press and seal wrap).
Every hour or so, stir your yogurt. I used a hand mixer, but you could also use a whisk of even fork. Mix it all up, and then cover and put back into the freezer. Repeat this until frozen, about 3-4 hours.
Serve! Top with whipped cream, mangoes, or whatever you feel like! We just ate it plain and it was delicious.
I would advise you to eat this yogurt the same day it is made. It isn’t a huge servings, probably enough for 4 people to have 3/4 a cup. I ate some the following day and it was extremely hard. I left it on the counter for about 10 minutes before scooping out and that helped. It was still tasted good the next day though.
