Rainbow Layered Fruit and Yogurt Ice Cream for Breakfast
Rainbow Layered Fruit and Yogurt Ice Cream is so healthy that you could eat it for breakfast and I have on several occasions this week. It is like just eating fruit and yogurt but 100 times more fun!!! I love berries and yogurt. In addition, berries are the preferred fruit if you are trying to maintain a diabetic friendly diet. However, you can use any fruit your little heart desires. Frozen fruits are even better as they help the layers freeze faster and that is very a good thing.
I used unsweetened vanilla coconut yogurt to keep it dairy free, diabetic friendly and paleo friendly but you can use any yogurt you like. However if you do not need to worry about those things, then you could just add a vanilla yogurt and all you would need to do is add the fruit.
How to get the Layered effect
I know it looks complicated but trust me anyone can do it, it is SO easy. The hardest part is just waiting to eat it until it is frozen. Do you have a little loaf pan to make bread? If you do go find it and line it with plastic wrap both ways that is long enough to provide cover for it whilst it is in the freezer.
Then, crack out your food processor, your frozen berries and your yogurt and whiz them up and put in 4 separate containers. Then you just freeze one layer at a time, let it freeze over night and then like magic you have a healthy and delicious Rainbow Fruit and Yogurt Layered Ice Cream. How easy is that!?!
I love those pretty PINK layers of the fruit and yogurt. It is the time of the year that we need to be thinking about PINK. Lots of PINK ribbons. Lots of PINK food and lots of MRI's and girly checkups.
October is breast awareness month
Today, this message goes out to you all of you lovely girls and women to please take care of yourself and get checked. Breast cancer is not something that happens to everyone else, it can happen to you too. This week my heart is very heavy as I have just found out that a very dear friend has just been diagnosed with breast cancer this week. However, they have caught it very early and we are very optimistic and sending loads of prayers and well wishes her way. To my dearest friend, this post is for you sending you positive thoughts and hugs from Hong Kong to you.
Think PINK! Schedule your appointment girls and enjoy a delicious Rainbow Fruit and Yogurt Layered Ice Cream!
