New Summer Flavors: Now Swirling at Pinkberry

My Creation!
No one can appreciate Pinkberry more than a pregnant woman. Let me clarify- more than a pregnant woman due to give birth in one week. I proved this point this weekend. I was asked to try some new flavors Pinkberry is featuring this summer- Blueberry and Strawberry Margarita. Holy crap were they delicious!

Let me start off by saying how all summer long I have been desperate for a margarita. Talk about the epitome of a summer cocktail. Sweet, tart, refreshing. Being pregnant throughout the whole summer has made my margarita drinking impossible. I opted to try the strawberry margarita yogurt for this very reason. I could have some sense of normalcy and pretend I was sitting on the beach sipping a margarita.
Mmmmm Margarita!

Now those that aren’t in margarita withdrawal like me, don’t like alcohol, or are kids- Don’t worry! There is no alcohol in this dessert. It does come with a salty/sugared rim if you would like. The store I went to had run out of the rim. Otherwise I would be all over that. The yogurt was a perfect blend of tartness with a hint of sweetness. You can add unlimited toppings to your yogurt so I chose an endless array of fruit including watermelon, raspberries, blueberries and strawberries. YUM! So refreshing.

Because I am pregnant and  everyone tells me I can eat whatever I want ( I am totally aware I shouldn't) I also tried the blueberry yogurt. It reminded me of blueberry Greek yogurt. Totally refreshing, not too sweet, but was missing the tartness I enjoyed with the strawberry margarita yogurt.

If you haven’t yet, go to Pinkberry ASAP and try these delicious new flavors! You will not be disappointed!

Maple Brussels Sprouts with Blue Cheese & Bacon

Can I tell you guys how much I LOVE brussels sprouts? I never ate these little morsels of amazingness growing up, but I sure make up for it as an adult. Whoever says they hate brussels sprouts please try them again. Not boiled. That is gross. Sauteed with some maple syrup, bacon and blue cheese crumbles. You can thank me later.

Sausage Kale and Goat Cheese Frittata

Looking for a super easy breakfast dish that you can make one day and feed yourself for the whole week? I know I do. I appreciate sleeping as late as I possibly can every morning. If my breakfast is already made for me I will be way less likely to stop and get a bagel, croissant or even worse not have breakfast at all. Frittatas( basically an Italian omelet) are super easy to make, you can fill them with whatever you want.My favorite are filled with veggies and protein ( and sometimes potatoes!) What's not to like?
