Have you ever made cupcakes or cake pops for a party and wished you had sprinkles that matched your theme?

I know custom colored sprinkles can be found on Etsy and Amazon, but sometimes they’re still not exactly what you were looking for and you don’t really get much of it either… or worse, you’re in a time crunch and don’t know if it will arrive in time.

Psst…wanna know a secret?

You can buy white sprinkles from you nearest hobby shop and custom tint them yourself to be exactly what color you need!

Like this combination of pink and green to match my daughter’s pink and green themed Ice Cream Shoppe birthday party, perfect as a topping option for the ice cream bar.

Today it’s a mild 104 degrees outside (dripping/sweating in sarcasm) so as much as I would have loved to load up the munchkins in the sweltering heat and truck on over to the outdoor farmer’s market, I just decided to stay indoors and frantically dig around my kitchen for something to post about share a dessert I’ve been planning for weeks.

What I almost always have in my refrigerator is fruit. So let’s just pretend these beautiful organic strawberries came from the farmer’s market instead of Safeway.

I also found greek yogurt in my fridge. I immediately knew what I would do for you all (considering how hot it is outside)…

Frozen yogurt! And fresh strawberries (or any other fresh fruit for that matter!) is great with the yogurt.

Not just any frozen yogurt, but Pinkberry style frozen yogurt (tart with just a hint of sweetness – a frozen yogurt that actually tastes like yogurt that has been frozen).

Let’s take it one step further. There’s only a little over 110 calories per 1/2 cup serving. 130 if you include the fresh sliced strawberries.

If you have an ice cream machine, this baby could be in your hands in 15 minutes. If you don’t have a machine, I include instructions on how to make this at the end as well. Read More →
