These bite size raspberry chocolate chip frozen yogurt chia cookie sandwiches are a fun and tasty treat for a hot summer day!
That title is totally a mouthful right! Today is the first day of summer break for the big kids and they are kicking it off with chores. Like getting rid of all the papers they brought home from the school year and emptying out back packs and lunch boxes. My recycling bin is already full! I don’t mean to be a lame and mean mom, but if we don’t clean this stuff now, it will go everywhere and I will go crazy (crazier!)
Another thing that I’m enjoying about the kids being home is that I can keep a closer eye on what they eat. My kids love sweets and junk food. I’m not opposed to them having sugar here and there and I’m not a sanctimommy who always says no to fast food or won’t let them have a juice box. We just do our best to make smart food choices.

One of the smartest food choices I’ve made lately involves cookies! Audrey’s Chia sent over a box with bags of their cookies and oh my goodness they are amazing! I was anticipating that they were going to taste, um, healthy. But no. They are delicious. I’m falling in love with chia. I really want to sprinkle it on everything, so having them in cookies is brilliant! Plus, Audrey’s Chia is based in Mesa, Arizona! Which is just couple of towns over from where I live. I love supporting local!
The girls decided that they are crispy enough to make bite size ice cream sandwiches. I had a better idea. Raspberry Chocolate Chip Frozen Yogurt Chia Cookie Sandwiches! We got some of the Icelandic skyr yogurt, which is really thick and creamy, added some fresh raspberries, chocolate chips and a little sweetener. I used monkfruit sweetener, but good old sugar or honey would work great too. I made eight little raspberry chocolate chip frozen yogurt chia cookie sandwiches and they were gone in three minutes. So yummy!
Raspberry Chocolate Chip Frozen Yogurt Chia Cookie Sandwiches
Yield 8 sandwiches
1 cup Icelandic Skyr yogurt, or which ever yogurt you prefer
1/3 cup fresh raspberries
1/4 cup chocolate chips
2 tablespoons Monkfruit sweetener or granulated sugar
1 package Audrey's Chia Chocolate Chip cookies
Combine ingredients in a bowl. Line flat-bottomed bowl with parchment paper. Spread the yogurt mixture out evenly into bowl, making it about 1/2 inch thick. Place in the refrigerator for one hour so the sweetener has time to mix in. Then freeze for 1-2 hours.
Cut out rounds pieces of the frozen yogurt so that it fits on the cookie. Make the sandwiches and serve immediately!
Audrey’s Chia sent over four flavors of cookies, Peanut Butter, Chocolate Chip, Lemon and Almond. I thought that I would like the almond the best, but I really fell in love with the lemon. That’s unusual for me, because I don’t like lemon anything, but Audrey managed to make these lemon perfect. The girls are all about the chocolate chip, and the peanut butter was devoured by the Mr. You can’t go wrong with any of the flavors!
They also have a Salted Caramel Topper, a Gluten Free Dark Chocolate Almond Topper and a Tropical Fruit Topper as well!which is for putting on your ice cream, smoothie bowls or just for shoving small pieces of deliciousness in your mouth. I haven’t tried this flavor yet, but I plan to. You can find Audrey’s Chia products on Amazon and Vitacost, and if you are local to Arizona they will be available in Fry’s by the end of June and Bashas’ by the end of August!
