And It All Begins…Summer, Hairpulling {my own} and We Made Sherbet

Well it has started, we have been out of school for what 3 days and I am already having to create “projects” for Noah and Faith.

You know, most of us would think as the kids get older things get easier…LOL, right!  I have found myself playing “referee“, board game queen, activities director, day-trip planner, and waitress every summer.

NO, it does not get easier {unless you are the parent who just let’s the play station and IPad entertain your kids}.  Not in this house, not me, nope!  Sure they have their allotted time with the electronics, but here’s the deal…I am a stay at home mom {inspiring blogger} Fitnessmomwinecountry creator {hoping to build on my Wellness Weekends} and since I am so supported by my AMAZING hubby, I can’t complain.

I loved seeing that Faith had read through some of my magazines over the weekend and from what I could see by the pages she had ripped out of the Self Magazine, she had some faves and some projects planned {by the red highlighted circles on the pages}.

First up was the Mango Yogurt Sherbet  recipe.  PERFECT,  we had all the ingredients in the house.  After making that, we thought “hey, let’s do a Strawberry Sherbet recipe”.

RECIPE FROM SELF MAGAZINE:

  • 10 oz Frozen/fresh Mango’s 1 3/4 Cup
  • 1 Cup 2% Greek Yogurt
  • 2 tbl Honey
  • 2 tbl Orange Juice or Mango Nectar
  • Sliced Fresh Mango for Garnish

DIRECTIONS:  In a food processor blend all ingredients until smooth; divide the sherbet into bowls and serve immediately or cover and freeze.

*NOTE* Microwave for about 30 seconds to soften when ready to eat {if you want}

RECIPE FROM FITNESSMOMWINECOUNTRY

  • 2 cups fresh strawberries {we actually freeze our fruit so these were frozen}
  • 1 1/2 cups 0% Plain Greek Yogurt
  • 3 tbl Honey
  • 1/4 cup of Zola Coconut Water {we used this in place of juice}
  • Bananas for Garnish
  • Unsweetened Cocoa Powder

Same directions as the Self recipe just blend all together {a blender will do fine in place of a food processor}.

*NOTE* Just play with the thickness of the sherbet and adjust the amounts to your desire

This was a tasty dessert for last night’s dinner and pretty fun project.  I loved topping mine with the fresh banana’s and chocolate.  This is on treat that I felt good about eating

  1. I bet that recipe soothes even the most agitated of nerves!!! MMm Looks delicious! 🙂

  2. What a neat idea! It looks delicious! Glad you and your kids are having a fun start to your summer!! :0)

  3. That sherbert looks yummy! My kids got out of school yesterday (we had 2 snow days this school year that pushed the date up). We got some things planned for the summer already, like VBS, kids camp where they can learn Spanish, trips to the mountains. I didn’t plan much last summer – I won’t do that again!! 🙂

  4. Love that recipe, I have lots of fruit in my fridge so may have to try it
