Where does decadent meet (sort of) healthy?

Right in this mug of happiness. May I introduce you to chocolate chip cookie dough frozen yogurt? I don't think you will have trouble getting along.

Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough Frozen Yogurt
makes 1 ½ - 2 quarts
For the frozen yogurt:
4 cups plain or vanilla Greek yogurt
1 cup milk
1 ripe banana
¼ cup honey
½ cup sugar
1 tbsp vanilla extract
¼ tsp salt

For the cookie dough:
¾ cup rolled oats
3 tbsp butter, softened
2 ounces pitted dates
¼ tsp salt
½ cup chocolate chips

To make the cookie dough, put the dates in a bowl of very hot water. Set aside to soak for 5 minutes. Meanwhile, process the oats into a flour in a food processor or blender. Add the butter, salt, and soaked dates. Blend until everything comes together and it looks like cookie dough. Add in the chocolate chips and refrigerate for 2 hours.

To make the frozen yogurt, blend together all of the ingredients. Refrigerate for 2 hours. Using an ice cream maker (mine is from Cuisinart), pour the cooled yogurt mixture into the frozen ice cream maker’s attachment bowl. Let the machine run for 20 minutes. Once the yogurt is creamy, drop about ½ a teaspoon of the cookie dough into the running machine at a time as well as the chocolate chips. Once it is all stirred up, serve immediately for soft serve, or pour into a sealed container and freeze for 3 hours for normal ice cream. You may need to let it thaw on the counter for 10 minutes before scooping out and serving.
