Coconut Fruit Dip

It is still as cold as sin here, but hey, I’m feeling better so there is an upside.

There is also fruit dip. Which makes me happy, because it reminds me of summer!


This is a simple recipe and comes together in less than a minute!

Coconut Fruit Dip


1 cup Plain Chobani Yogurt


1/3 C. Bobs Red Mill shredded coconut (unsweetened)


A few drops of Coconut Stevia.


Mix well, and serve!


My kids LOVE to “dip.” They will always eat more food when they get to “play” with it. It is packed with probiotic, healthy fat, and protein. All of which are tough to get kids to eat. Well, my kids anyway. They would live off cheese and apples.

I finally felt good enough to workout today. The GPP wasn’t a breather, today and figured I’d be okay to give it a go.



The workout requires us to sit on the ball with our legs off and try to balance while doing OH press in one hand, and to kneel on the ball without holding on to anything (you could if you needed) and do bicep curls with one hand.

It has been a while since we have done this workout so my balance was a little more touch and go then what it used to be but by the end of the workout I alllllmooost made it through all 20 reps on each side before I lost balance. One to work on.

I also went to a body combat class after (took it easy), it felt good to just move again, my body feels a little tight from being curled up so long.

The kids I could tell felt the same way… it was time to get out of the house. The thing I hate about winter the most is that it’s a little harder to just be outside during the day.. thank goodness for places with large blow up animals and slides, probably caked with more germs then I would like, but hey it could be worse.



Besides, they love it and don’t hold still for longer then a millisecond.

We got home a little later then intended so dinner was kind of a toss up. I made some ground turkey and threw it on some spinach, green beans with some acorn squash


Hope you guys have some fun plans this weekend!!

And because I miss summer so much..

Does anyone have a recipe that reminds them about summer??
