Today is World Nutella Day. Tomorrow is National Frozen Yogurt Day. Imagine my delight when I found a cornucopia of recipes combining Frozen Yogurt with Nutella! Nutella today, Frozen Yogurt tomorrow. Perfect.
Kiddo and I love Frozen Yogurt. Our favorite has to be Chocolate Frozen Yogurt. Hubby not so much, but then I think he gets certain ideas about food and can’t (or won’t) change his mind. He’s never tried Yogurt, frozen or otherwise. Oh well, that’s more yummy yogurt for the rest of us, right?
Happy Frozen Yogurt Nutella Day everyone!
