So I had a friend share this video that is kinda funny, kinda good, and very inspiring.
The fellow is talking about finding a good after workout snack that is high in protein.
And it leads to making homemade Mango Frozen Yogurt in a gym changing room. The guys name is Tom Daley, he is pretty popular on YouTube and is an elite level swimmer. The chef? Don’t know who he is.
I have now watched this video a few times and finally my daughter and I made it last night. We liked it but I have a few things to say about this.
First of all the changing room looks pretty clean but not so sure. Are we supposed to bring blenders into the gym changing room?
And, where do you store frozen fruit and yogurt in a gym?
Mango Frozen Yogurt Experiment
So, seriously, I was really inspired by this video mostly because we tend to have frozen fruit in the freezer and secondly because I love frozen yogurt but not regular yogurt. I always think of frozen yogurt as something more like ice cream than something good for you.
This Frozen yogurt recipe calls for very few ingredients and as my daughter and I “researched” (surfed around) YouTube we got more ideas.
In the end we tried making our Mango Froyo with these three ingredients:
- Strawberry Greek Yogurt
- Frozen Mangos
- Fresh Basil
The original recipe called for plain yogurt, a bit of zest of a lime, fresh basil, and frozen Mango so we were pretty close. Sadly we had no lime or plain yogurt but I purposely want to try the greek yogurt as it is very basic and higher protein.
When you watch the video above it sees actually like they are using a food processor instead of a blender actually and I am guessing that may work better. If you think about what we made it is pretty close to making a basic smoothie. After we had blended ours up it was not nearly as thick as the one in the video, which was awfully disappointing so we needed to put it in the freezer for an hour or so. Refrigerators and freezers can be the most important appliance that we have in our kitchens, they help to keep our food fresh and can store most food items that need to be chilled and cannot be kept in the cupboard or pantry. These food items include fruit and vegetables, meats and some desserts such as cakes and yoghurt, without the fridge a lot of our food supplies would spoil very quickly and need to be thrown in the bin.
When a fridge breaks down or develops a fault this could not only ruin our food but it can make some food items unsanitary and dangerous to eat without falling ill or suffering a bad stomach, especially when it comes to meats and cooked foods. With a new fridge or freezer costing a couple of hundred pounds you will not want to be spending this money at the best of times, a large proportion of people will be struggling financially these days and a sudden expense such as the need to replace a vital kitchen appliance could cause some trouble.
What Would We Change?
When the Mango Frozen Yogurt came out of the freezer it tasted great although if you are not used to greek yogurt it is a bit overwhelming at first.
Also, we may have put a bit too much of the basil in there (look how green it was).
One other thing I think I would do next time is try regular yogurt.
This greek yogurt maybe awesome for the amount of protein in it but it was a bit too strong to eat a lot which is what you would want if it is a post workout snack
