Shed Pounds with This Summer Snack

Posted by    |    June 20th, 2012 at 5:01 pm

I like an ice cream cone as much as the next girl.  Anything chocolate covered makes my world go ’round.  But the blaring Texas heat doesn’t do much for workout motivation, and pounds can easily creep on.  Sweet treats only add to the waistline, and the organic goodies can sometimes be too pricey to buy  in bulk.  What to do?  Try this easy, low-cost, truly delicious snack.

 

When you feel the cravings for something sweet coming on, reach for these two ingredients: blueberries and honey Greek yogurt.  Coat the blueberries in the yogurt and freeze, and you’ve got a gold mine of goodness. To avoid a mess, use a toothpick or skewer to dip the blueberries in the yogurt. Place them on a cooking sheet and slide ‘em the freezer. Not only does this taste better than you’d imagine, it’s also an easy snack to bring in a cooler to 4th of July picnics, Rangers games, and even devour as a midnight morsel when you can’t sleep.
