I have been cooking so much with yogurt in the past few weeks! As I mentioned when I made this delicious chocolate snack cake, the nice people at Chobani sent me some yogurt to play around with. TheBetterHalf and I have been making all kinds of great recipes with yogurt.
Some favorites were:
The possibilities with yogurt are endless! But one of my favorite ways to use yogurt is by making a smoothie. I had some leftover pumpkin from making my pumpkin doughnuts so I decided to whip up a pumpkin pie smoothie! Continue reading
It is finally starting to feel like summer! Which means I want to eat ice cream pretty much all the time (TheBetterhalf: How is this different from winter?). NYC is dangerous for me – there is an ice cream or fro-yo store on almost every block. But rather than giving in to the temptation the other day, I decided to make a smoothie to satisfy my craving for a frozen treat. I like to make my smoothies with yogurt and milk so that they are creamy and make it seem like I’m drinking a milkshake. But I use almond milk and fat free yogurt, so the calorie count stays low and there is very little fat. I went with pineapple coconut to really make myself feel like I was on vacation! The entire thing only has 214 calories, and this make a huge smoothie! For those looking for a fun drink to make over the long holiday weekend, this smoothie would also be great with a little rum added in. Cheers! Continue reading
It’s finally Friday! I don’t know about you, but I could use a cocktail (or two)! This refreshing pineapple mint tequila mojito will do the trick! This cocktail is delicious. The light sweetness from the mint simple syrup and the fresh pineapple complements the tequila and lime perfectly. Top it off with club soda for some bubbly action and you have a perfect cocktail! The original recipe calls for rum, but TheBetterHalf and I prefer tequila. I think this would also be great with vodka. I decided to put a sugared lime rim on our cocktails because it looks so pretty – and because I am a fan of sugar if you couldn’t tell. It is so easy, just zest one or two of your limes and mix it with some sugar. Cheers! Hope you all have a great weekend. Continue reading
