As much as I would love to be the genius behind the combination that is Baileys and Oreo Cookies, I have to give credit to Homemade Hooplah who gave me this fantastic idea after seeing her delicious Baileys Cookies and Cream Parfaits on Pinterest.
Nabisco should take note, a Baileys Oreo cookie would be divine!!
Over the weekend I was looking for a dessert to make for me and hubby, So I took to pinterest.
I trailed through lots of pics and nothing was really inspiring me, as being on Slimming Eats, most cakes work out pretty high in calories.
Then all of a sudden it caught my eye, the words Baileys and Cookies and Cream in one sentence. I was drooling on my ipad screen.
I really wanted these like right now, but the ingredients heavy whipping cream and chocolate, soon turned the delight into disappoint, as I saw those calories going up and up.
But that bottle of baileys leftover from Christmas in the fridge was calling me. It really was, honest!!
So I had a little think and thought perhaps I can make a Slimming Eats friendly version.
Jotting down a few ideas of what might work, I figured yogurt would be the best substitute in place of the cream, it's calorie free after all and then the chocolate from the oreos would just have to be enough to satisfy my chocolate cravings and so I could skip the chocolate used in the original recipe.
I think hubby thought I was going slightly mad when he saw me grabbing the bottle of baileys from the fridge. Concerned I was starting some early afternoon drinking session, as if.
The yogurt alone might be a bit tart, so to make it a little more creamy, I decided to whisk in a little bit of low fat cream cheese before adding the gold silk that is Baileys Irish Cream. I didn't swig any from the bottle, I promise.
You can omit the cream cheese if you want, it just won't be quite as creamy.
Combine the rest of the ingredients and viola - Baileys Cookies and Cream Yogurt Parfait. I have to say these were heaven!!
I now have to buy another bottle of Baileys, just so I can make these again.
Oh and I am definitely making the real thing for Christmas dessert. Whoops, sorry, did I just mention Christmas! Well it is only 13 weeks away.
