It may be a tough slog after all the work you’ve done to get there, but that’s ok.
(What does this post mean? I don’t exactly know yet. But it definitely means something.)
I tweeted out my afternoon snack yesterday and I got some rather excited responses so I thought I should share it here too. BEHOLD.
It is very simple to make. Take some mocha-flavoured greek yogurt (that’s the thick kind if you haven’t tried it before) and put a portion in a small bowl and freeze it. I was unable to wait longer than an hour but it was just enough to freeze the edges. Stir, breaking up the icy bits. Add a handful of chocolate chips or top with berries, or both! It’s a nice treat; tangy, and not too sweet.
It was a great way to crush my afternoon coffee and sugar cravings, so I am geared up to try this with lemon-flavoured greek yogurt next. Maybe topped with some raspberries too.
These are the other “mom-only” treats I predict will be on rotation this summer:
Thank you for visiting! My name is Andrea and I live in the Westboro area of Ottawa with my husband Mark and our two daughters Emma (14) and Sarah (12). I've been blogging since 1999, which makes me either a total dinosaur or a veteran of the Canadian blog scene, I'm not sure which! The Fishbowl is my whiteboard, water cooler, and journal, all rolled into one. I am the Managing Editor of Capital Parent Newspaper but also make my living doing a bunch of other fun things. I'm passionate about healthy living, arts and culture, family travel, good food, and sharing the best of Ottawa for parents and kids. I also love vegetables, photography, gadgets, and great design.
