What to do with Greek Yogurt..

Is anyone else getting a lot of Yoplait Greek Yogurt for FREE or Cheap?  Every time Smith's has a rounding event I end up with a bunch of these.  I just used them to make Orange-Vanilla Frozen Yogurt Pops and they are really good!

I found the recipe in the August All You magazine and it specifically said to NOT use fat free Greek Yogurt, but I did it anyway.  I thought they turned out great!

12 oz orange juice concentrate
1 1/2 c water
1/2 c sugar
1 T vanilla
1 1/4 c greek yogurt
pinch of salt

Combine concentrate and water.
whisk in sugar until dissolved
whisk in vanilla & salt
whisk in yogurt (will be a little lumpy)

I put a small baking sheet in my freezer
filled up cups (I used plastic) half way
freeze for an hour then add craft sticks
done in 6 hours

They came out of the plastic cups easily and have the name SOLO on them brand of cup)

My daughter was pretty happy.  Especially since they are about the size of her  You could always just put it in ice cube trays.

UPDATE:  I decided to microwave mine a bit and turn it into a slushie, THEN I added some Cool Whip to it and HOLY COW!  I've really created something here....I'm going to have to think of a name for it, it's THAT good!!

Thanks for sharing this. I got the Greek Yogurt last Smith's event and I thought they were kinda nasty. In fact my whole family hated them!! So I'll try this next time they are on sale! Thanks for sharing :)
I did too! Thankfully my kids like them so they don't go to waste. If you try them let me know what you think!

I have carried my little boy in a baby carrier since he was born. I love the convenience of strapping him in and not worrying about the hassle of a bulky stroller. It's also a comfort to hold my little guy close and safe. When I had the chance to review the ERGObaby carrier, I was thrilled to try something that could extend my baby wearing days.

My first test was a true one...Costco. I admit that I didn't really look at the directions when I put the carrier on in the parking lot. But I didn't need to! After one look at a picture in the user manual, I strapped my 20 pound boy in, placed my little girl in the shopping cart, and started on my way through the aisles of Costco. I immediately noticed that the carrier more evenly distributed my son's weight than my normal carrier and held my boy high so my legs weren't bumping into his. This made it significantly easier to tote him around the store. Indeed my normal trips to Costco are exhausting. But after…

Gardner Village Series: Country Furniture & Gifts

Gardner Village is a local treasure. If you've never found your way down there, October is the month to do it!  The shop owners love Halloween! The village becomes a witch village and many times, shop owners will even dress up.   On my most recent trip to Gardner Village, I stopped in at Country Furniture & Gifts which is a store very ready for Halloween.

The store is located in part of the old restored flour mill built in 1877 by Archibald Gardner in West Jordan, Utah.  The store is very family oriented and houses many built-to-last items such as dining room tables, sofas, beds and chairs.  They are also famous for their rug room where many of their rugs are still USA made. As they say, "A rug makes a huge impact for a minimum investment to any room."

The home accessories and giftware are amazing!  They have all sorts of decor for all sorts of personalities. Please be sure to pay them a visit.  It's worth it!
