Fruit and Yogurt

5 Apr

Fruit-and-Yogurt

How can you not love fruit and yogurt? It’s the perfect meal. I decided to live on the edge and have something else besides a hummus wrap for lunch. We have a couple of containers of Brown Cow Vanilla Yogurt (the BEST yogurt in the world) and thought this would be perfect. This was also a great post-run recovery meal, which I felt like I earned it since I shaved a whole minute off my mile!

Ingredients:
3/4 cup Brown Cow Vanilla Yogurt
4 strawberries, quartered
1 handful of blueberries
1 handful of blackberries
1 small handful of sliced almonds

Cheeseless Chocolate Cheesecake

Cheeseless-Chocolate-Cheesecake

I actually made this cake as part of our Valentine’s Day dinner. When I saw the picture on Facebook, I knew that it would be the perfect way to end the evening. While I can only take credit for the homemade whipped cream, I highly recommend that you try the cake. It was amazing. Not super sweet and not overly chocolatey, just perfect.

You can find the recipe at Paleo Parents

Homemade Whip Cream
Ingredients:
1/2 cup whipping cream
1 tsp vanilla
1 tbsp confectioner’s sugar

Directions:

  1. In the bowl of a stand mixer fitted with the whisk attachment or with a hand mixer, combine the cream, sugar and vanilla.
  2. Begin slowly mixing and gradually turn the mixer to medium and mix until the cream has thickened to form a peak on the end of the whisk. Be careful not to overmix or you will wind up with really sweet butter!

As always, enjoy!
