@Stonyfield Greek Is a Win (and an inexact smoothie recipe) #meatlessmonday

I try to only buy Organic dairy products for my family, which can get pretty pricey so when Stonyfield offered me the chance to sample their new flavors of Greek yogurt I jumped at the chance…even though I’m not generally a fan of anything with 0% fat.

In the last year or two, Greek yogurt has gotten pretty trendy–with almost every yogurt company trying their hand at making this thicker, creamier yogurt.  I don’t know of any other company that makes a fully Organic product free of GMOs.  But would the taste stand up?


I figured that I’d get to try a container or two…but, as you can see, the folks at Stonyfield wanted to make sure that I could really get my taste on! I got to sample the new flavors: Cafe Latte and Black Cherry, in addition to already established flavors of  Blueberry, Super Fruits and Strawberry.


A peek Into My Kitchen: No Cook Coconut Chia Pudding

Ch-ch-ch-chia…almost no child of the 80’s can’t sing that theme song (in fact, I bet you’re thinking about googling it right now 😉

It turns out that those little chia seeds, also known as salvia hispanica, are also an incredibly healthy and ridiculously fun food. They are high in protein, omega-3s, antioxidants and a whole host of other nutrients and super high in fiber.  Better yet, they absorb whatever liquid you mix into them and form a gel or pudding, which make a great filling snack.  (If you’re a mom, and you never forget to eat, then I want to know your trick!)


A peek Into My Kitchen:Creamy Banana-Berry Ice pops

I found the inspiration for  this recipe over at the Vitamin G blog on Glamour magazine's website and am raring to try it out on my kids sometime this week. I plan to use blueberries and to use a splash of maple syrup or a couple of tablespoons of sugar instead of the honey to make it friendly to my 11 month old (honey isn't considered safe until a year+).  We'll see how it goes 🙂 and I'll post any other changes that I make.
