Not the Parfait I Hoped For
June 28, 2010 § Leave a comment
It’s incredibly hot and sticky outside today! My hope was to make a yogurt and “soft serve” parfait, but sadly, it did not work out the way I had hoped. It turned out to be more of a smoothie.
To make the soft serve, I combined frozen banana slices and frozen strawberries with a little cold water in the blender. A food processor would have worked significantly better but we don’t own one. The blender was being very difficult this morning. I had to keep adding more water or else it wouldn’t blend at all. Needless to say, my soft serve fruity mixture was not the consistency I wanted and was a little watery.
The second thing that contributed to my parfait failure was the yogurt I used. We are almost of out Chobani greek yogurt so I used Brown Cow vanilla instead. Brown Cow is definitely not as thick as greek yogurt so instead of layering between the soft serve mixture, it blended into it.
I topped my glass with coconut granola. After I ate the granola I just stirred the whole thing up and drank it like a smoothie. It tasted great but was not my initial breakfast plan. Oh well!
2 slices of peanut butter toast. One with Jif and the other with Peanut Butter & Co. cinnamon raisin swirl
I had half of my coffee before spinning aka 5:45am and the other half right this second. Usually I feel awakened and energized after the gym but I didn’t really this morning. Probably because it is pouring rain outside boo 😦 See you for lunch!
