Oatmeal Raisin Froyo

Since I've started on my Beachbody journey, I've enjoyed exploring new ways to cook foods.  We've always been pretty clean eaters but I'm now making a big effort to create new ways for everyone to easily enjoy healthy meals.  I am getting ready to start the 21 Day Fix Challenge with an awesome group of challengers!  It's a program designed to help you get the results you want in just 21 days through working out, controlling your portions and drinking Shakeology.  I've been drinking Shakeology for 2 months now, and have LOVED it!  This stuff is no joke. 

So this summer there was a 21 Day Fix recipe contest and people were encouraged to create clean and healthy frozen desserts.  I couldn't decide what to do so while throwing around ideas with my family, my cousin decided that Oatmeal Raisin would be good, so that's what I decided on. I still have a long list of ideas that I will be making to share too!  

I'm not gonna lie, I really wanted to make a custard with milk and eggs and add brown sugar and cinnamon to make this delectable...but it's not clean!  Beachbody has empowered me to make the right decision.  I'm completely satisfied, have no regrets and am developing some pretty amazing self discipline!  So I came up with a recipe I knew would be delicious and no guilt involved.  Always a good thing ;)


32 ounces of plain yogurt (not greek)
1 T cinnamon
1/3 c maple syrup
1 scoop vanilla Shakeology (optional)
1 t vanilla
1 cup gluten free granola
1/2 c raisins


1.  Combine first 5 ingredients in a mixing bowls and stir until combined.
2.  Pour into ice cream maker using manufacture's directions.
3.  5 minutes before frozen yogurt is done, add raisins and granola.
4.  Turn off machine and move frozen yogurt to a freezer container. 
5.  Serve immediately for soft serve, or place in freezer for 1-2 hours for a more solid yogurt.

It's imperative that you serve this frozen yogurt in cute jars and adorable wooden spoons.  I'm serious.  It tastes that way.

This stuff is so addicting.  You'd think the raisins would be frozen solid, but they are in fact perfectly cold and chewy, so you keep digging for more.  And more.

And more.  The raisins are so addicting.  Sorry, did I already say that?

You can see the little ones coming after the frozen yogurt in the background.  I had to move fast before it was too late.  Of course I gave them a healthy serving of this frozen yogurt completely guilt-free and they devoured it!
