Chocolate-Peanut Butter Frozen Yogurt

Here's a decadent tasting dessert!  Peanut butter and chocolate of course go together, but as a frozen treat, it's even better. I have an ice cream maker, but it's not needed for this recipe.

It's practically just: dump ingredients into a bowl, beat together and freeze. Before freezing it has a thick pudding-like texture, but when frozen, offers a rich, creamy ice cream-like treat.

When wanting to make a smaller batch of ice cream, instead of a half gallon, this is my go to recipe.  Kids and grand kids will like it, especially if making popsicles or fudgesicle shaped.

2 cups yogurt
1 cup cream preferred, but milk or half and half will work too
1/2 cup unsweetened cocoa powder

In a large bowl, first beat until smooth: condensed milk, peanut butter, vanilla and salt.

Add yogurt, cream, and cocoa. Beat on low until smooth, scraping down sides of bowl. Freeze in a 5-6 cup container or individual popsicle or fudgesicle-size servings until firm, about 4 hours. Makes about 5 cups -10, 1/2-cup servings.

Estimated cost $.4.00 or less; .40 cents a serving or less.
