Stonyfield Rocks!

Hey guys!

I’ve been meaning to give a big shout-out to Kristina from Stonyfield for giving me the opportunity to try out even more yogurty deliciousness!

She sent me a ton of coupons:


Plus an awesome eco-friendly re-usable bag! I definitely am planning on using this the next time at the grocery store!


Now we all know, from the many yogurt-mess bowls that show up on my blog, that I LOVE me some yogurt! Especially greek…especially Oikos! I do love all greek yogurts but Stonyfield holds a special place in my heart, as the first greek yogurt I ever tried. And it’s definitely a plus that it is organic. :D

Now since I have these coupons to get to using, I am planning on experimenting in the kitchen with new ways to eat/cook with yogurt. Stay tuned on that!

In honor of Oikos, I thought I would include a picture of the lovely yogurt mess I recently consumed:



The heavenly mixture included:

  • 3/4 cup Oikos 0% plain greek yogurt
  • 2 tbsp PB2 mixed in, more sprinkled on top
  • 1 Kashi TLC fruit and grain bar: dark chocolate coconut

So delicious, thick, and creamy! I definitely recommend adding PB2 to plain yogurt for flavor. I try to watch my added sugar intake which is why I mostly stick to plain greek yogurt. The PB2 really gives it some extra oomph!

And now here is the homemade coconut ice cream I promised!



Heaven on Earth, I tell you.

Coconut Ice cream:

  • 2 cans of coconut milk
  • 1/4 cup agave nectar
  • 2 ripe bananas, mashed
  • 2 tbsp vanilla extract

combine in a pot on the stove on low heat to bring flavors together. Plop in an ice cream maker and make according to the directions.

Thats it! My week have been filled to the brim with creaminess, from greek yogurt to ice cream. Ah yes, life is good.

Now I must get off the computer as I have some kiddos waiting for me to come babysit. Have a lovely Wednesday!
