My husband and I have been concentrating on eating right and exercising each day since we moved here. We even built our own home gym out in the garage for doing our CrossFit together.
Does that mean we do not eat sweets? Well, if you have been around here for very long, you know that I am a huge fan of baking. And by baking, I really mean eating sweets.
I actually think my sweet tooth has gotten bigger over the years. This is not a good thing when summer months are rapidly approaching, and I want to be able to wear shorts in public very soon.
There are a few times of year when I get that extreme urge to eat better. The first urge to make sure I’m eating the right foods happens in January, right after the holidays. After eating cookies and fudge for an entire month, it’s necessary to get back on track at the beginning of the year.
The next time I really start to ramp it up in the eating and exercise department is in April. As the warmer weather starts to happen more often, I am reminded that summer is going to be here very soon. And summer means shorts and swim suits are about to happen.
This month I am partnering with thinkThin® to show you how easy it is to eat a delicious treat without sabotaging your healthy eating goals. This new smoothie mix will be appearing on Target shelves in the upcoming months. Each package is loaded with protein, fiber, fresh dried fruit, and omega-3’s. Talk about a punch of healthiness in each packet!
Now, one way to enjoy this fruit goodness is to blend it with some almond milk and ice. I made a smoothie the first day I got the mixes, and I was impressed with the quality and taste of my drink.
But this is me we are talking about, so I wanted to find a way to include the protein smoothie mix into a “dessert”. We tried healthy cookies first, and those were good, but then we made frozen yogurt, and that has become my new favorite treat.
Making frozen yogurt is very easy to do. We buy bananas all the time, and keep a bag of them in the freezer for smoothies. But did you know that frozen bananas (or any fruit for that matter) are also a great base for healthy ice cream or frozen yogurt?
For each serving I blended one frozen banana with some Greek yogurt and one packet of the thinkThin® Blueberry Banana protein smoothie mix. Look at those berry flecks in there! The bright purple mixture is so pretty and tasty that you might be tempted to eat it right away. Go ahead if your sweet tooth needs that fix. But we like to place it in individual freezer bowls for 3-4 hours to harden up and to become frozen yogurt.
This creamy blueberry banana frozen yogurt has become my new favorite snack to enjoy each night. With hot summer days just around the corner, I have a feeling I’m going to need to keep my freezer stocked with more containers of this frozen yogurt.
I love having a healthy snack that I can enjoy without having to add extra workout routines to my life. My shorts are going to be so happy this summer!
