Frozen Yogurt Freakshake

Happy Halloween!

If you celebrate Halloween, then tonight will be the night in which you will dress up and pretend to be someone or something else and parade around the streets asking for free candy. It may also be the night in which you choose to just skip all of that, stay in watching your favorite scary movie, and enjoying something that is sweet and decadent. If you decide to do the latter and that is stay in and enjoy something sweet and decadent, then I can certainly help you out with that by making a quick and easy Frozen Yogurt Freakshake.

Just in case you have never heard of a freakshake before? Well let me share with you that is has been making its rounds in popular foodie news as of late when it first showed up at an Australian restaurant. These monstrous creations are overloaded, over the top, and completely non-diet friendly. But who cares about diets anyway on Halloween…do you? Of course not because you are my people 😉 So forget about the diet just for tonight as we re-create our own version of a freakshake at home.


And since we still want to be a little bit concerned with what goes into our bodies we will be making a lighter version by using frozen fruit and Greek yogurt instead. Now you can choose to purchase ready to eat frozen yogurt or whip up it yourself by using your favorite frozen fruit combination and Stonyfield’s Organic Plain Greek Yogurt. Since I almost always have yogurt in my fridge it is much easier for me to make it myself. Now once you have finished making your frozen yogurt in the food processor, then the fun part happens…the toppings! You can go as crazy or reserved as you would like here, but keep in mind that it is Halloween and these are also freakshakes, so do not hold back here. I am still going to be a little mindful of the candy that I am using and opt to use UnReal Candy which is sustainably sourced, free of GMOs, gluten free, soy free, and contains no artificial flavors or dyes. This candy is available at Target and Whole Foods, has much less sugar, and provides a better choice AND the perfect topping for our Frozen Yogurt Freakshakes.

Ingredients:

Instructions:

Using a food processor, combine the frozen fruit, Stonyfield Organic Greek yogurt, agave nectar, vanilla extract, and process until the mixture is smooth and creamy; about 5 minutes.

Divide the frozen yogurt in 2 of your favorite glasses and top with a drizzle of chocolate sauce on each, followed by a sprinkle of your favorite chopped nuts, piling on the Unreal dark chocolate almond butter cups and UnReal candy coated milk chocolates, followed by a swirl of whipped topping. Be generous with the toppings to make this treat even more monstrous!

Stick in a straw and serve immediately.

    Wow, how have I never heard of freakshakes before!?! These sound like an excellent use of leftover Halloween candy…which I buy way too much of in the first place in the hopes that we have some leftovers. 🙂 Great idea!!

    This freakshake looks freakin’ amazing!! I’m sitting here staring so hard. Perhaps, I’m hoping for the shake to jump off the screen and land on my desk. I have to pin this.

    I usually stay in, watch a scary movie and enjoy myself. This year I went out and had a great time but who knows what I will do next year. I’ve never heard of a Free Shake, but it sounds like something I would love. All of the toppings make my little heart sing 🙂

    I had never heard of a Freakshake before, but it looks like a really fun treat. We still have loads of Halloween candy leftover. My son only ate two pieces of his candy and my daughter only wants her Kit-Kats and M&Ms which I am slowly letting her eat. So we have plenty of candy to try out this recipe. 🙂

    My kids would go crazy over this and I won’t feel so guilty for them eating it since it has yogurt and fruits! Win-win for me!
