Last week's challenge, Greek Yogurt, was very easy for us to implement into our days. I was able to use it 6 out of 7 days!
- 16 oz plain Chobani Greek yogurt
- 1/8 to 1/4 cup sugar
- 2 tsp vanilla
- 1/3 cup crushed strawberries
This was yummy! The thickness does take some getting used to, especially if you're not used to eating yogurt at all, but it is filling and delicious.
I'll admit that I wasn't crazy about this one, but then again I'm not too big on popsicles. The kids, however, devoured them. Their actions told me that they liked them!
Chobani Champions very berry Greek yogurt.
This is the first greek yogurt made especially for kids. It's yummy... aren't all kid's foods???
- 5-6 oz Stonyfield Oikos Vanilla Greek Yogurt
- 2 oz (about 1/3 cup) granola
A couple people suggested eating yogurt this way. It was a great breakfast!
For this I used Tammy's Recipe for cream cheese apple dip, substituting plain greek yogurt for the cream cheese.
I thought it was WAY too sweet. I liked the flavors, but I really need to tinker around with this recipe to get it where I'd be happy with it.
The kids liked it after I added more yogurt. They ate theirs with a spoon and not as a dip.
(Not sure why I can't write next to this pic!)
I used Alton Brown's recipe for blueberry muffins. They turned out great although I think I used too much flour. It calls for 12 1/2 oz, so I used 3 cups. I think 2 1/2 cups would've been better.
My batch yielded 15 muffins and they were gone within 24 hours, so they were a success.
Ian (our 2 year-old) was calling the berries "blue strawberries"... too cute!
Spiritual challenge: It was a good exercise to pray for our elders. Hopefully I'll remember to do that more often!
This week's food challenge is Quinoa. I'm a little nervous about this one, but I'm ready to eat!
The spiritual challenge is to listen to podcasts that edify.
Both quinoa and podcasts are things I've never tried, so this will truly be a new challenge for me. :)
