I have had the absolute pleasure of getting to know this special little sweetie who along with her family have recently been assigned to Shaw AFB here in Sumter. God gave me a great blessing when he nudged Charlie's Mom, Emma, to visit our MOPS group at Alice Drive Baptist. Emma, Charlie, and little sister, Chloe have become great buddies of mine through our Thursday mornings together. Charlie also visits me at my home from time to time where we enjoy playing and making healthy snacks. The one we made on this particular date was frozen blueberry yogurt balls (Charlie and I call them ice cream balls because that just sounds more fun!)
You will need:
vanilla flavored greek yogurt
a cookie sheet
All you do is put about 1/2 cup of yogurt in a bowl ,roll one blueberry at the time in the yogurt trying to keep some extra yogurt with each blueberry (I find it easiest to use the tip of a small spoon). Place each ball individually on a piece of wax paper lining the cookie sheet. Once you've filled the whole sheet where they don't touch each other place the cookie sheet in the freezer. 30 minutes and you're ready to eat blueberry ice cream balls! If you don't tell your little ones (or even your husband) they are are actually healthy then they will gobble them up... guaranteed! What they don't eat right away peel off the cookie sheet and put in single serving zippered bags in your freezer. You can pull a bag out at any time and have the perfect healthy snack. Because as we learned in last week's Mom2Mom blog:
"A virtuous woman cares for her body. She prepares healthy food for her family."
