What’s better than an irresistible chocolate chip cookie? Whether you’re team crunchy or team chewy, each bite is filled with sweet, buttery dough and pops of indulgent chocolate bliss. That being said, it takes only a matter of seconds to gobble down two or even three…and then you’re left staring at an empty plate with only a few measly crumbs remaining as evidence. Sigh.

Well, here’s a smart swap that lets you sink your teeth into a much larger version that’s packed with both flavor and nutrition to extend your eating experience and boost the health value. My giant fro-yo “cookie” is scrumptious and simple to make—just spread a single-serve yogurt (vanilla, strawberry or mixed berry…anything goes) into a circle shape, crumble a cookie on top and freeze. This superfood trick increases protein and calcium, which is great for muscle and bone health. Plus, it takes longer to eat because it’s super-sized and frozen, letting you savor each piece as you break it apart. That’s the way this cookie crumbles!

A few notes: I like to use 2% reduced-fat flavored Greek yogurt. Non-fat varieties (0%) will also work, but they become icier and less creamy, so it’s best to use a 2% variety for this recipe. Look for brands with less added sugar; there are so many great ones on the market today. Or you can also buy plain unfloavored Greek yogurt and sweeten it yourself by adding some honey, maple syrup or a sugar substitute of choice. Add your sweetener right into the container a d give it a stir before spooning the yogurt onto parchment paper and creating your circle.
