Healthy Peach Frozen Greek Yogurt

Guilt-Free Peach Fro-Yo!

Serves 1 (That’s right! You get the WHOLE bowl!)
Prep Time: 5 minutes       Cook Time: 0 minutes

INGREDIENTS

1 cup sliced peaches, frozen – can be fresh or bag.
3/4 cup plain greek yogurt
1 tsp lemon juice
2 tsp honey or agave

INSTRUCTIONS

If using fresh peaches: Sweet, very ripe peaches are best! Wash, pit, and slice. Place on a cookie sheet and freeze for at least 2-3 hours.

Place frozen peaches into a food processor and pulse until crumbly but not pureed. Add yogurt, lemon juice and honey. Process until smooth or the desired consistency. Taste and add a touch more honey, if needed. Can be eaten immediately or frozen in an air-tight container until it is the desired thickness. I like mine with little chunks of peaches, but you might like yours super smooth and creamy.

Note: You can use ANY frozen fruit in this recipe. The combinations are endless! Try frozen cherries with dark chocolate chunks or strawberries with banana! YUM!

Butternut Squash Fries

I had a really strong craving for some sweet potato fries, but I didn’t want to use one of my yellow containers. I had this butternut squash laying around and I knew I had to use it before it went bad. So…. Butternut squash fries were on the menu! They’re a little bit sweet, a little salty, and a little spicy. They definitely satisfied the craving!

Butternut Squash Fries – 21 Day Fix Approved!!

 

Ingredients:

1 small butternut squash, peeled and seeds removed
1 tbsp. olive oil
1/4 tsp. pink Himalayan salt
1/4 tsp. garlic powder
1/4 tsp. dried basil
1/4 tsp. black pepper
1/8 tsp. cayenne powder
Dash of cinnamon

Directions:

  • Preheat oven to 450F. Line baking sheet with silicone liner or aluminum foil.
  • Cut squash into evenly sized fries. The smaller they are, the quicker they will cook.
  • Place the fries into a bowl with the olive oil. Toss until all the fries are coated. Season with remaining ingredients and mix until combined.
  • Place fries on tray and evenly spread out so no pieces overlap. Place into oven and bake for 20 minutes. Flip, and continue baking for another 10-20 minutes, or until desired crispiness is reached. I like them to be a little bit charred on the ends.

Note: If you want crispier fries, place them on a metal rack for cooking!
