Healthy Summer Treats with Stonyfield and Yaylabs [review + recipe]

It's been hot. And sticky. And we go through ice cream in this house like crazy. I'm talking a gallon a week. It's a vice. An addiction. We fully admit it. But sometimes you need to enjoy the sweeter things in life, right?

Recently, life got a little sweeter (and healthier) thanks to Stonyfield and the idea to use yogurt in our night time treats. Partnering with Yaylabs and their awesome ice cream ball, we were able to create frozen yogurt sweetened with our own local honey for a delectable delight.

Bonus? We got to spend around an hour of uninterrupted "together time" as we loaded our ball, rolled it, checked it, scraped and mixed ice cream, and of course, enjoyed the fruits of our labor. Speaking of fruits, we are going to be trying blueberries and mangoes in the mix tonight. Pineapple juice is also on the list for a little light and refreshing sorbet.

Next weekend we're camping and we plan to take the ball along there too! What a fantastic way to while away the summer nights outside the tent or camper and then be rewarded with a cool treat -- S'mores are great, S'mOreos are better, but a cool treat on a summer night in the bush is the best!

The retail price is around $30 depending on where you pick up a Yaylabs ball, and they are sold in a variety of colors and at several vendors.

Our Recipes [tried so far]:

Classic Vanilla
1 pint 1/2 and 1/2
1/3 C sugar + 2 Tbsp
1 1/2 tsp Vanilla extract

Frozen Yogurt
1 pint Stonyfield Whole French Vanilla Yogurt
1/4 C fresh, local honey

That's it! Both were delightful! Our only advice is to make sure you check inside the ball regularly so that you don't have to spend much time scraping to free very firm ice cream off the edges of the vessel. It's very easy to get carried away playing "roll the ball" while visiting on the floor!
