Just Like Going to the Beach?



When I was a kid, my parents took us to Balboa Island fairly regularly, where we would each get a chocolate covered Frozen Banana.  To this day, that is one of my most treasured memories. 

So the other day, being typically hot and tired, and nowhere near the beach, I went into Yogurt & More, in good ole Kersting Court, and "invented" my own version of the Frozen Banana.  Here's the recipe:

1/2 Banana Yogurt +
1/2 Chocolate Yogurt +
a sprinkle of almonds on top 
= Practically A Trip to the Beach! 

Okay, I realize it's not exactly the same as a trip to the beach, but it's really delicious frozen yogurt, and the price of gas can't be beat.  In a pinch, I'd say it's a pretty good alternative!

    1. It was pretty darn good, for sure! I'm hoping to do my Playhouse post tomorrow, but will let you know for sure. Thanks for offering to link! It was such a nice evening!

    2. It was! Do let me know; I'll probably be a day behind you but will use my Sierra Madre pic if it's good enough.

    3. Well, now I'm looking at Tuesday morning. Had a bit of a pleasant time-out yesterday and today and am falling behind! But Tuesday, for sure.

  2. Balboa Island/Frozen Bananas! Gosh, I love both. I used to go to a church camp there every summer and ever since I have been happy to take a small detour just go down memory lane on such a great little island and enjoy the best ever frozen bananas. I can't wait to try your recipe...it will be a challenge to find frozen yogurt - but I will. Thanks, Adele. (ps. Price of air fare too :).

    1. I'm so glad you've had them - definitely worth a trip down memory lane. I'm very fascinated by the idea that you don't have much frozen yogurt there. Here, the yogurt stores are nearly as ubiquitous as Starbucks!

    2. You are right. When I was visiting not too long ago I was overwhelmed by the choice. Went to some nice places in Old Town Pasa. With it being 90+ over here the last couple of days (yes!), I know folks here would love frozen yogurt. Well, I have a challenge now. Wish me luck :)

    3. Quick! Now's your opportunity to bring a franchise to Coventry! Maybe one of those pop-up stores, so you won't be saddled with it when the rains come back and no one wants yogurt.

  4. If they have a menu your suggestion should be on it.

    1. Good idea! I should tell them. Maybe one of those things like Jelly Belly puts out, with all the flavor combos.

  5. This looks delicious! I do love froyo and now that LOLfromPasa has mentioned it, I also haven't noticed any in the UK. I remember frozen yogurt everywhere in my west coast-ish young days, but it took a while for it to catch up on the east coast...funny how these regional (or international) differences can manifest even in humble frozen yogurt :)

    1. It really is interesting. We had FroYo in the 90's (I think it was?), and Penguins was big. Then it all seemed to disappear until recently. I like the new twist, where you pay by the ounce.
