Tropical Yogurt Bites

tropical bitesLately, I love yogurt. Like a lot.  It’s a breakfast/snack/lunch staple in this house.  So I got to thinking…It can also be a delicious dessert.  After dinner…or before, I most often crave something sweet, just a taste.  I always end up in the kitchen hunting for something to snack on.  So I of course got to work.  And here is what I came up with! Tropical Yogurt Bites!! Protein packed with a touch of sweetness and crunch.

Now, this has to be the most versatile snack/dessert of all time.  Honestly, you could make these yogurt bites with just about anything you would like. Any fresh/frozen fruit…nuts…chocolate… any kind of yogurt! I personally like to use Chobani Greek yogurt.  Its PACKED with protein and has awesome flavors.  I am already thinking about my next creation…white chocolate raspberry yogurt bites! But first, let’s discuss these guys.  They are a great grab and go healthy snack OR a nice little “Ice Cream” dessert without all the added fat, calories, and  sugar. My kinda snack!

Ingredients:

  • 2 Cups Peach Greek yogurt (I always use Chobani, my favorite!)
  • 1/2 Cup Fresh or Canned pineapple in their own juice
  • 1/3 Cup Chopped Raw Almonds
  • 1/4 Heaping Cup Dark Chocolate Chips

Directions:

  1. Chop almonds and pineapple.
  2. In large bowl, Mix all ingredients together.
  3. Spoon mixture into ice-cube trays OR spread in a freezer safe pan for yogurt bars (YOUR CHOICE) 🙂
  4. Freeze, relax, enjoy!
  5. Once frozen, I always empty ice-cube tray into freezer bag.

Foodie Pen-pal REVEAL!

Hi ALL!
I hope you are all having a fabulous day.  I hate to admit it, but you are all keeping me honest…It is day 6 of my 21 Day, Morning Fitness Challenge. I did NOT workout this morning.  Yes I was up at 5:45, wide awake actually.  I was just having a bad morning, I sat and enjoyed my Vanilla Biscotti Coffee instead. I took my time getting ready for work, I could not make myself do it. EXCUSES, EXCUSES… I know.  I will be back at it tomorrow morning…I PROMISE (you better check on me!)
Now…on to the very exciting Foodie Pen-pal REVEAL! This was my first time participating in the Food Pen-pal program.  I found out about it on Twitter. One word I would use to describe this experience….awesome! It was so fun to get a package in the mail filled with goodies from someone who you have no idea who they are and also sending some goodies to the other person you were matched with.  It was GREAT! It’s pretty cool what you can find out about a person through their favorite snacks and products.

Luna Peanut Honey Pretzel bar
Newman’s Own Dark Chocolate Peanut Butter Cups
