Play with your food: making fro-yo with YayLabs and Stonyfield

Thanks to Stonyfield and YayLabs for making this delicious post possible!  When you're on vacation you leave the regular routine behind: the kids go to bed waaaay past their bedtime, you sleep late, you buy all the snacks at Trader Joes (and then eat them all) and you play with your food.

Thanks to Stonyfield and Yaylabs we got to play with our food this week when we made frozen yogurt. YayLabs is the maker of bright and fun Softshell Ice Cream Ball, that allows you to make ice cream anywhere.

We loaded up our ice cream ball with Stonyfield yogurt, maple syrup and vanilla and  in the second compartment packed in the ice and rock salt.

 [Tweet "Play with your food this summer with this ice cream recipe @yaylabs @stonyfield"] The whole family got in on the action as we sat on the grass and rolled our icecream ball around. We played "hot potato" and a few other games to keep the ball moving. And about 25 minutes later we had a rich and creamy fro-yo we topped with fresh blueberries...and M&Ms and sprinkles. The perfect afternoon treat!

Maple Vanilla Frozen Yogurt

1 pint Stonyfield Whole Milk French Vanilla Yogurt

1/4 cup maple syrup

3 Tbs. brown sugar

2 tsp. pure vanilla extract

YayLabs Ice Cream Ball

Rock salt and ice.

1. Combine all the fro-yo ingredients in the food container of the ice cream ball. Add a dash of cinnamon for added flavor.

2. Add ice and rock salt to the ice compartment of the icecream ball (you can find rock salt in your groceries seasonal isle--I found it next to the charcoal or in the spice isle. You can substitute kosher salt as well).

3. Play with your ice cream ball for 25 minutes.

4. Enjoy!
