Frozen Yogurt Cake

I made this for my husband’s birthday. You can get all sorts of ice cream cakes out there, they are indeed nummy but the nutritional info on them is…less than nummy. Some places make a frozen yogurt cake such as Ben and Jerry’s but the one around here closed a year or so ago. So, getting a lower fat style of frozen cake was looking like a no go. This has never stopped me before! Time to figure out how to make one. Surprisingly, not very hard. Once I figured out what I wanted in the cake it was just a matter of assembly. I know that we love the fudgy layer in those cakes, the cookie crust, and overall creaminess. A little culinary architecture and tada! A tower of num. My husband loves his mocha so for this one I went with a chocolate and coffee style of cake. Go with your favourites and change it up! Soon you too can have your own customized frozen cake dessert.

  • 12 reduced fat oreo cookies
  • 1 tbl cold coffee
  • 7 scoops vanilla low fat frozen yogurt
  • 7 scoops cappuccino low fat frozen yogurt
  • 1/2 cup fat free dark chocolate sauce
  • plastic wrap
  • 8″ springform pan
  1. Line a springform pan with 2 sheets of plastic wrap that hang about 6 inches over the sides. Drap one sheet and then drape the other crosswise.
  2. Crush the oreo cookies, cookies and filling together. Add the coffee. Press the mixture into the pan (on top of the plastic wrap you used to line it)
  3. Once the crust is down begin scooping the vanilla frozen yogurt on top of the crust. Then, using a spoon smooth out the frozen yogurt to create a seamless layer.
  4. Top with the fudge sauce, then scoop the mocha frozen yogurt on top. Use a spoon to smooth the layer as before but more carefully to prevent the sauce from moving around too much.
  5. Optional: Top with some extra chocolate sauce to add words or a picture.
  6. Cover with the overhanging plastic wrap and foil for extra protection. Freeze for atleast 4 hours or overnight. To serve take out of the freezer and allow to sit for 10 minutes. Unwrap and spring the pan off. Heat knife under hot water and slice.
  7. We sliced ours into 16 pieces. They are tall and ever so decadent. Enjoy!

Serves 16. Yes, That is a 16th of the cake! Nutritional information totally depends on the brands you choose for yourself. Although with this one you can rest a bit easier knowing that this cake is certainly not as bad for you as most of those ice cream cakes out there.

  1. Wow! This looks delicious.

    • Thank you! It was! I have declared that the chocolate sauce must never be in the house unless there is cake to be made though. I kept sneaking spoons of it in the evenings. Addictive!
