First of all...Happy New Year!! Yayayay, it's 2017! I have so many memories to look back on from 2016. One of my favorites was starting this blog...
With the new year starting, everyone is making New Year's resolutions. I make them, too, even though it doesn't necessarily have to be a "new year" to make changes in your life.
One of the most common New Year's resolutions is to eat healthier. A lot of people do this (especially adults), and start out eating healthy in January. They actually do a pretty good job of this...until February rolls around. They get bored of healthy eating, and turn to their old, unhealthy habits.
Well GUESS WHAT, PEOPLE?!! 2017 is the year where you eat healthy, all the time, and not just in January. Really, guys. YOU can make this the year where you start to change your old habits. Just imagine when 2018 comes and you can look back on the past year and say, "wow, I'm so impressed I stuck with healthy eating. Now it's natural!" Wouldn't that be amazing? All of this starts with a choice and a commitment. Make that choice today to start eating better. You won't regret it. (Promise). If you're stuck with what to do and what to eat, visit Green Teen for delicious, yummy recipes!! It's a great place to start. I also like to go on Pinterest to find healthy recipes. In fact, I get a lot of my inspiration there. You can also come up with your own recipes - and I'd love to hear them if you do! Visit my Have any Tasty Recipes to Share? post to learn more and share your own delicious recipe.
Whew!! Now that I've shared that with you, it's time to get to today's recipe. It's super easy (probably my simplest recipe so far), and if you want to start eating healthy in 2017, this recipe is for you. It's called Frozen Yogurt Blueberry Bites. Basically, it's...just that. If you're craving ice cream or frozen yogurt in the new year, I suggest you make this instead! These "bites" taste amaaazing. Share them with your whole family!
Frozen Yogurt Blueberry Bites:
2 cups blueberries
1 cup plain Greek yogurt (but really, any yogurt works)
drizzle of honey (optional)
Wash your blueberries. Then, get out a small pan (that you would use to make cookies) and line it with parchament paper. Put the yogurt into a bowl. Next, stick a toothpick into the blueberries. One at a time, dip and swirl the blueberries into the yogurt. Set it down onto the parchament-covered pan. Repeat until your blueberries are gone (or you feel like you have enough). Now, just freeze them!! You'll need at least an hour, but longer won't hurt. And, if you want your blueberries to be a little bit sweeter, drizzle some honey on them! It's delicious.
*ALSO!! Switch it up - blueberries aren't the only fruit that will taste good! Raspberries, strawberries - have fun with it!
