Brownie Batter Frozen Yogurt

It’s been a terrible week for me in the kitchen… I actually don’t know how is humanly possible that so many things went wrong??

I mean, I obviously make a lot of mistakes when I’m cooking, because mistakes are part of the learning process and I’ve been cooking for less than a year, so yes, my cooking skills are far from perfect and I’ve still got so much to learn but… 5 kitchen disasters in the same week??! Madness. That’s way too much, am I right or.

Brownie Batter Frozen Yogurt - super creamy, chocolaty, sinful and GOOD FOR YOU!

First we have a galette that I carbonized. Literally. It was meant to be a birthday present for mum’s best friend, but my oven decide she didn’t deserve a present. Oh well. My new oven is kind of a jerk, which eventually leads us to mistake #2, or “the crusty cake”.


Yeah, I was trying to bake a chocolate chip cake, which obviously was meant to be fluffy and soft, like the cake law commands. Well, my oven decided this time that it should be a “baguette style” cake: crusty and crispy… CRISPY. You guys should have seen it, it was funny because you couldn’t tell whether the cake was a bread loaf or… well, cake.

Mistake #3 was one of the funniest ones, oh how I wish I had taken pictures of it!!! Mum and I were trying to make profiteroles for my cousin’s birthday, and while we were trying to fill them with truffle whipped cream (that stuff was amazing, glad I didn’t ruined that one!), the pastry bag collapsed and EXPLODED. You read right, it exploded. Have you ever seen a pastry pipping bag explode?? Because it is actually the funniest thing ever. I was looking at my mum while she filled the profiteroles when I suddenly heard a noise and saw the piping tip separate from the bag and make its way trough the kitchen, leaving LOTS of truffle stains in the (white) kitchen tails and mum’s (white) dress. Man, I wish I had recorded that… Although it wasn’t so funny when it happened, we had to spend a lot of time removing the truffle stains from the floor, counters and the rest of profiteroles and no, I wasn’t allowed to lick it, in case you were curious.

Mistake number four was the most terrible one… because it involved cheesecake :(( It was key-lime cheesecake and I don’t know why, I wanted to be green (don’t ask me why, I say… what would I be thinking about??). So I grabbed a green coloring tube and dyed the cheesecake… and obviously got green cheesecake, aka the most unappealing cheesecake ever. And believe me, it is difficult to make cheesecake look ugly. Anyway, flavour and texture wise it was out of this world good. It was a mixture of ice-cream and mousse, so you imagine how good it must have been… although it looked like spinach cheesecake. Someone stop me next time I try to dye something!

And this fro-yo is mistake number five. It was meant to be dark chocolate frozen yogurt with brownie chunks but I messed this one up too and now it’s brownie batter flavoured frozen yogurt.

Best.

Mistake.

 
Ever.
 
This is my new favourite frozen yogurt flavour. And I have a hard time trying to decide which flavour I do like better, because I pretty much love every fro-yo in the world. But this one’s the winner. It’s even better than this lemon frozen yogurt… and that has been my favourite for months.
 
But this one?? Creamiest fro-yo ever. Looks like plain chocolate, but when you have a bite you see it’s much better. Well, it tastes of brownies, it must be better.
 

I am not ashamed to confess that I ate 1/3 of the serving in a sitting… because if you guys had been on my shoes you’d  have done pretty much the same… It’s so good that it’s addictive.

And healthy too, because it full of protein, natural fats and fiber from the brownie… how cool is that, high fiber fro-yo??! This has to be the most satisfying and filling fro-yo ever. Which is why I only ate 1/3 of the recipe, because normally I would have gone ahead and ate all of it… But no, this one is really, really filling!

 
Which I basically did was make a microwave brownie, and then add it to the fro-yo base before churning… that was my mistake, because the ice-cream machine turned the brownie chunks into ice-cream
 
Brownie Batter Frozen Yogurt
Super chocolaty and studded with lots of brownie chunks - you wouldn't tell it's healthy!

Chocolate frozen yogurt base
  1. 700 gr. (2 + 1/2 c.) full-fat greek yogurt
  2. 180 gr. (or to taste) sugar
  3. 3/4 c. cocoa powder
Microwave chocolate brownie
  1. 1/4 c. wholewheat flor
  2. 1/2 c. all-purpose flour
  3. 2 + 1/2 tbsp. cacao powder
  4. 50 gr. raw sugar
  5. 2 tbsp. agave syrup
  6. more stevia to taste (take into account I don't like my dessert on the sweet side, with these quantities, it was perfect for me, but you might want it sweeter: add more stevia or sugar to your taste)
  7. 1 tbsp. olive oil
  8. 1/2 c. + 1 tbsp. almond milk
  9. 1/4 tsp. baking powder
Instructions
  1. First, prepare the fro-yo base. Add yogurt, cocoa and sugar to a bowl and stir until is fully mixed. Then, prepare the brownie, which is super easy, because all that you have to do is mix all the ingredients together and microwave for 3-4 minutes at 600ww.
  2. Add the brownie chunks to the yogurt and chill the mixture overnight.
  3. The next morning, the yogurt will look a bit weird, but don't worry, this is completely normal. It's ust the brownie, which has soaked part of the yogurt.
  4. Pour the mixture into your ice-cream maker and churn until you like the consistence of the ice-cream. You can have it straight from the machine or freeze it for a couple of hours more. The one pictured had been frozen for about 4 hours more.
Notes
  1. -It is supposed to work with fat-free greek yogurt, I mean, you'd still get fro-yo. But it won't be nearly as creamy as this. If I were you I'd choose greek, because if you go for fat-free, you'll have to add extra sugar or sweetener to make up for the texture. Your choice!
  2. -The brownie recipe has always yielded nice results for me, but if you got a brownie which a terrible texture (which I don't think it happens unless you leave out the oil or something like that), you can also add it to the fro-yo base. I think you won't notice the difference.
  3. -You can use stevia, xylitol or any other sweetener in place of some of the sugar (or all, if you can't have sugar), but it'll freeze more solid, so you have to take the fro-yo out the freezer 10-15 minutes before you want to eat it.
  4. -Vegans use soy, coconut or almond yogurt for the base, the brownie recipe doesn't need to be veganized!

And you know that you want to add extra brownie chunks too, right? Some nutella, maybe? Can I tempt you with some more chocolate chunks? SPRINKLES? NIBS? CHOCO-MORSELS? ANYTHING.
You want to and you know it 馃槈

    The frozen yogurt looks great.. I’m not usually a yogurt fan but when it starts out with “brownie” I might have to try it. :)

      I love froyo, but this is even better! I hope you love it! x

    I haven’t ruined anything lately, but when I was 10 or 11, my mom asked me to reheat something in the microwave with saran wrap, but I didn’t know the difference between that and foil. So I stuck foil in the microwave and was rewarded with flames and a permanent stain in our microwave:) That was not a delicious mistake. This however! Healthy, high fiber and totally indulgent? I never say no to brownies – ever – and would eat so much of this!

      Flames wow that’s scary! When I was 10 I didn’t even know what foil was hahaha I really disliked being in the kitchen!
      Thanks Mary, I hope you love it :))

    You shouldn’t be so hard on yourself – if it tastes good it simply isn’t a mistake – like this fro yo and even the green cheesecake :)
    I love fro yo – and this one sounds great – I don’t blame you for eating 1/3rd of it! If it was at my house – 3/3rds of it would have been consumed!

      3/3rds were actually consumed haha but I had to share with my brothers too.
      Yay, I love it when mistakes taste actually great, but I’d have loved to take some pictures of the cheesecake, the recipe was a good one. Looks like I’ll have to make it again soon… what a pity, huh? xx

    What a delicious mistake! I’m notorious for burning bread and I’ve learned that when I’m cooking I have to ONLY cook. If I sit down at the kitchen table and start going through mail or get my mind on something else, I completely loose track of time and something is going to be overcooked.

    • Reply Consuelo Morcillo August 14, 2013 at 2:07 pm

      I shouldn’t leave the kitchen when I’m cooking either, but I get so so bored ;–) That’s why I tend to burn things haha.
      I’m glad you like this, thanks!! x

    This sounds like a delicious mistake! I happen to have some Greek yogurt in my refrigerator, and your frozen yogurt base sounds incredible! I love the idea of including brownie bits in it too!

      Yes, it was a delish one 馃槈 Let me know if you try it and I hope you love it xx

    I’m sorry you had such a rough time in the kitchen lately! I think we all have those weeks – and they are definitely not fun! But this frozen yogurt sounds awesome – anything with brownie in the title has got to be good : )

    • Reply Consuelo Morcillo August 14, 2013 at 5:26 pm

      Those weeks are terrible, indeed. I hate ruining food :c

    Ha! Funny post… and I have definitely made my share of kitchen mistakes! Most recently, I melted some chocolate to add to a buttercream, and I thought I should let it cool a little before folding it in. Well, I must have let it get a little *too* cool, and while I thought it looked smooth, I found out otherwise when I tried to pipe it onto some cupcakes. My tip kept getting clogged up with little bits of hardened chocolate! I’m surprised IT didn’t explode! Oh, well, live and learn, right?

    Your fro-yo looks fabulous and I love how you’ve set up the photos. Cute props!

    • Reply Consuelo Morcillo August 14, 2013 at 5:30 pm

      Haha I think that’s what happened with my tip, because I used some melted chocolate in the making of the profiteroles. Anyway, it was a mess!

      I’m glad you like the froyo thank you, Allie! And I like the props too, but I don’t know why, my camera wasn’t working properly and I got loads of blurry photos. I need to get a proper one asap! By the way, which one do you use? I really like your photos, and I have no idea on which one to buy! x

    Haz como Edison, que cuando le preguntaron por todas las veces que hab铆an fallado sus experimentos, respondi贸: “no he errado 2.000 veces: he encontrado 2.000 maneras de c贸mo NO se hace una bombilla”^_^

    Y, benditos errores: a veces las mejores cosas (como este estupendo yogur helado de brownie), nacen por ‘casualidad’. De hecho, se supone que el brownie en s铆, naci贸 por un error del cocinero (se le olvid贸 ponerle levadura a su pastel de chocolate) y…隆mirad qu茅 rico le sali贸!

    Pues s铆, no sabes lo que me alegro de haber descubierto este yogur helado… ya estoy pensando en volverlo a hacer, pero tengo a mi heladera que no para, la pobre!
    Qu茅 curioso lo del brownie, eso no lo sab铆a… menos mal que se equivoc贸 el hombre, 隆menudo descubrimiento!
    Un abrazo :-*
