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 →

Desserts fresh from the farmer’s market!

 

It’s a beautiful Sunday morning in California’s central valley and for me and my girls, that means it’s a trip to the farmer’s market! I first visited the Sunday Farmer’s market less than a year ago and it has been one of my girls’ favorite places to go to when the weather is nice outside.

Sweet, Plump Blueberries

Sweet, Plump Blueberries. Score!

This trip to the farmer’s market yielded juicy red strawberries and sweet, plump, blueberries among other things. So I thought, with the start of summer, it would be fitting to do some simple desserts that showcased these delicious fruits. (Disclaimer: I am mildly allergic to fresh fruits and vegetables, but the desserts looked so yummy that I couldn’t help but try them myself! Sooo worth it!)
