I always find myself reaching for a late night snack and I need something easy and fast most nights. I love greek yogurt and wanted to find a way to mix it up a little! It is still freezing here in New Jersey but this would also make such a good treat in the summer since it is frozen.
There are so many variations of this recipe another thing I love about it! You can use any flavor greek yogurt or even plain yogurt and add in a little agave or honey to add a little sweetness! For toppings, you can use any fresh or frozen fruit. I usually use frozen since I always keep frozen fruit in my freezer for smoothies. Next is the peanut butter, my favorite! I have also used nutella too and it is equally as good! Tip for when you spread the Peanut butter or nutella- microwave it for a few seconds so it it can be poured onto the yogurt a little easier. Some other toppings you can add are nuts, chocolate chips, coconut, and granola. Super simple and done with a minimal mess in the kitchen. My kinda recipe.
1 cup Greek Yogurt (any flavor Vanilla and Strawberry are my favorites but plain yogurt with some honey/agave to sweeten it is also good. I personally like full fat yogurt but you can use any type!)
Frozen or Fresh Berries
Coconut (you can toast is too!)
2 tbsp Melted Peanut butter or Nutella
Spread a layer of yogurt on wax paper and add in all your toppings. I usually melt the nut butter so it drizzles easier. Put in the freezer for 2-3 hours and crack into pieces. Store in the freezer until ready to eat.
For as long as I can remember I do my normal weekly grocery shops at ShopRite! They have the freshest produce and everything I could ever need to make healthy meals throughout the week. I wanted to highlight something I have been doing lately though instead of going to the grocery store- I have been ordering my groceries through the ShopRite App on my phone and having them delivered or picking them up- it’s super easy. You place your order on the app, pick a time slot for delivery/pickup and thats it! Easy, fast and most importantly it allows me more time at home with my Husband and our pets! My favorite thing!
Over the weekend I made some snacks for us to watch the football games! We had our groceries delivered from ShopRite and then we got to work! We made Wonton Tacos or as I call them “taco cupcakes” together and they were SO good. Basically they are just little taco shells with all the stuff thats in a taco. I listed how to do it and what you need below.
1 package Ground Beef or Turkey
1 package Wonton Wrappers
Olive oil spray (i used Pam)
packet Taco Seasoning
about 2 cups Shredded Cheese (I used cheddar)
Toppings! Whatever you like I used Salsa, Guacamole, Sour cream and Olives
1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Brown your ground beef and add in the Taco seasoning. In the meantime, Spray a cupcake tray with your Olive Oil spray.
2. Place the wonton wrappers like you would a cupcake paper in each little well. Once your meat is cooked, place about a tablespoon in each wonton wrapper and top the meat with some shredded cheese. Then repeat this again- top with another wonton wrapper, meat, and cheese and you will basically have two layers. I press each layer down with a spoon too.
3. Bake them in the oven for about 8 minutes. Keep an eye on them they brown fast!
4. Garnish your taco cups. I top mine with some guacamole, Sour cream, fresh salsa and black olives. You can add anything though- taco sauce and green onions are some other ideas!
