I have a confession to make. And I hope you still like me and want to be my friend after you hear it.
I don’t really like cake all that much. Gasp! And if I had my druthers (seriously one of my favorite words ever!) I would rather have a bowl of cereal as a treat than a bowl of ice cream.
Which leads me to my next confession.
Sometimes I mix my cereals. I hope all of you cereal purists will still be my friends too! A little bit of a variety of cereal all in one bowl is just divine. Like a cereal smorgasbord. Now my son is mixing his cereals too and my husband claims it is all part of my master plan.
Mwah ah ah!
I’m not exactly sure why I would prefer cereal to cake or ice cream. But maybe it has something to do with loving things that are more thick…dense…and a bit chewy.
Now, don’t get me wrong, I love a good Dairy Queen blizzard. But, again, it’s dense…and thick…and creamy…and with chopped up Heath bar mixed in…oh my stars…uh oh…now I’m craving one!!
But, I digress. I’ve recently discovered the joys of Greek Yogurt which is not only healthier for you but has that wonderful thickness I love so much. My most favorite of all is Dannon Oikos Vanilla Greek Yogurt.
In my opinion, not all Greek Yogurts are created equal and this one has such a creamy texture to it. We’ve had a lot of ice cream in our house lately due to the plethora of birthdays and end of the school year celebrations but frankly they hold no appeal for me. But one night I wanted something that felt just a bit more like a “treat” and I wondered if it might just be possible to take my love for Greek yogurt to the next level.
So I made vanilla chocolate chip frozen Greek Yogurt.
And let me tell you, the love didn’t just go up one level, it went through the roof!
I may or may not have licked the bowl.
I also may or may not have closed my eyes a few times while eating it just to fully appreciate the depth of flavor.
And my husband may or may not have looked at me like I was crazy. But, I’m used to getting that look every time he sees me pouring a little bit from each cereal box into my bowl.
So do you still like me and want to be my friend even though I’m not crazy about cake?
I think if you tried this you might just want to call me your BFF and write in my yearbook that you hope I have a ‘rad’ summer and ‘stay tan’.
