I think as a human we want good things to eat. We want to feed our family good things. But the hustle and bustle of life can more often than not lead us to delve into and get snacks and treats that aren’t so good for our body. I am always on the look out for wholesome snack that is good for my family, and good for myself. That choice unfortunately can and is proving difficult the busier our lives get and the more involved we get our choices can sometimes go awry.
So my beautiful daughter asked me for a treat one afternoon. It was a rare hot day for this summer anyway, and I didn’t want to say no. But here I was again busier than I wanted to be, and I needed something that I could say yes to and still feel good about giving to her. Do you ever have days like that where you say no a lot? I have been trying hard to figure out how to say yes more. I don’t want to be the bad guy all the time. Do you ever feel that way? I can’t be alone in that. So today I chose to say yes. I went immediately to the fridge to see if I could make ice cream happen in a manner that I could feel good about.
I was at Walmart a few days before and I had to restock my supply of Yoplait ® Greek and I decided to branch out and try a new flavor from my usual peach and picked up strawberry. I must say the amount of variety of yogurt available is quite amazing and it will fit a variety of a family’s go to wholesome snack needs. I am partial to greek yogurt, while my daughter loves the gogurt version. I picked up what I needed and we headed home.
Now standing here in front of that yogurt purchase I remembered I had some frozen berries as well. So I popped 2/3 cup of frozen mixed berries into my ninja, any blender will work, with one whole container of strawberry greek yogurt and a splash of milk and popped the lid on and began to pulse it until smooth. What I ended up with was a fun purple ice cream with lots of protein, and vitamins and minerals that I felt good about giving Hannah and myself. I said yes in a big way that is aiding Hannah and myself in a healthier life. Setting us both up for success. Give Yoplait® Greek, Original, light or Gogurt a try and make it your go to wholesome snack!
