We just returned home from one of my favorite places, Tilghman Island, MD. Each year we go to Tilghman for a few days in the summer for Brady’s family reunion. His aunt and uncle have a great place on the Chesapeake Bay. Our 5 day weekend was filled with boating, reading, walking, seafood festivaling, sailing, wine tasting (2 days in a row 🙂 Kristen!), celebrating Brady’s aunt’s 80th birthday, running, tubing, watching the sunsets, and eating crab. A few pics for now:

Last week was hot and I had a ton to do each day. One night after dinner I was in the mood for a sweet treat that wouldn’t make me feel gross for eating it. I LOVE what I came up with.

I searched frozen yogurt recipes and came across one of my favorite blogs: 101 Cookbooks .

This blog of one of those go-to blogs full of great, healthy, natural recipes!

I modified the recipe I found and it turned out like this:


Strawberry Pinkish Yogurt

  • 2 c. strained plain vanilla non-fat yogurt (The original recipe called for full fat but I didn’t want to use that)
  • 1.5 tblsp agave nectar
  • fresh fruit
  • splash almond milk to moisten the yogurt and add volume
  1. Mix strained yogurt with agave and place in an ice cream maker – or KitchenAid ice cream attachment, like I used
  2. Follow directions for ice cream maker adding yogurt/agave mixture
  3. Mix for about 15 min. until semi-frozen
  4. Add berries and continue mixing until desired thickness has been reached.


I ate mine with some almond butter drizzled on!
