Strawberry Greek Yogurt Popsicles

Oh hi friends! Long time. What better way to come back than with a tasty recipe to get your summer started.

So here’s a confession, I’m not a big fan of chocolate. I’m also not a big fan of ice cream. I know. I’m basically a traitor to my gender, right? Don’t get me wrong, every now and then I get a craving for it, but by and large, I don’t think about it. I’d much rather have a chocolate dipped frozen banana (Yeah, I know i just said I don’t like chocolate. Exceptions are made for chocolate with peanut butter and banana.) or a popsicle. Plus, ice cream doesn’t sit very well with me anyway so it’s better for everyone that I don’t eat it.

Unfortunately, most popsicles are high in sugar and low on nutritional value. A while ago I picked up a box of those Yasso Greek Yogurt bars in an attempt to find a healthier alternative. They were good, but I didn’t love them. Enter my healthier Strawberry Greek Yogurt pops!

This past weekend, it got pretty warm. We broke out the smoker for the first time this season, and it really felt like summer was in full effect. So I decided to bust out the popsicle molds
we got as a wedding gift and try my hand at some homemade Greek yogurt bars with what I had on hand. Let me just say, my first attempt at popsicle was a major success. I’m looking forward to making many more popsicles this summer. They’re the perfect treat on a hot day.

These pops come together with 4 simple ingredients: 2 containers of strawberry Greek yogurt, some sliced, fresh strawberries, about a half cup of almond milk, and a splash of vanilla.

What’s Making Me Happy This Week V

My FitBit ChargeHR

 

It’s here!

I thought about buying a FitBit a few years ago, but since I do Weight Watchers, I decided to get their ActiveLink fitness monitor instead. as it would convert to points automatically. And while my ActiveLink has been great (and is still fully functional), it’s always had two main drawbacks – a $5 a month fee and no sleep monitoring like the FitBit has. WeightWatchers recently released their ActiveLink 2.0, but they also started syncing with FitBit (as well as some other popular fitness monitors) too which made the idea of replacing my trusty ActiveLink really appealing.

I went back and forth for a couple weeks as to whether or not I should get the New ActiveLink, a FitBit (and if I did which one), or some other fitness tracker (JawBone, the Polar Loop, etc). My preference was to get something with a heart rate monitor, but it wasn’t a deal braker. Ultimately I decided on the FitBit ChargeHR in black (Though I REALLY wanted it in Plum, I was not willing to wait 8 weeks for it!) and bought one from Amazon. I’ve had it less than a week, and I absolutely love it! (I’ll do a full review once I’ve had a chance to use it for a while.) To say I’m obsessed is probably an understatement.

If you’re a FitBit user, add me as a friend!
