Frozen Strawberry Yogurt with USANA Strawberry Nutrimeal

Easy peasy! 15 minutes later I was eating a satisfying nutritious dessert!
I am an avid biker and even though my friends probably think I am a bit mad I ride all over Brooklyn and Manhattan across bridges and the sides streets to get where I want to go. It has been a great way for me to redevelop my core strength, see the sites while doing my part to save my environement. Saturday June 9th I biked to Washington Square Park to take in a cultural festival. The day was warm and due to the never ending construction that happens in New York a bit dusty. By the time I got home at 6:30 I was craving something cool and summery. But what?

Strawberry Blueberry Fro Yo with Usana Nutrimeal  

I remembered I had saved some strawberries in the freezer and had some left over frozen blueberries. Along with that I had some Eastern European style yogurt on hand.  Following Diana Yin's recipe from the Usana Test Kitchen within 17 minutes I had a delicious and satisfying treat that didn't leave me feeling bad after a sugar crash.

How I did it
In a metal bowl I placed 1 cup of plain yogurt and
3 scoops of Strawberry Nutrimeal.
I blended these two ingredients together with a whisk.
Next, I took  2 cups  (total) of the frozen strawberries and frozen blueberries I had on hand and put them in the blender. I added 2 tbs of o.j. and 3 tbs of agave. I pulsed the fruit mixture for about 45 seconds because I like small fruit chunks.
Then I added the mixture to the yogurt mix and blended evenly. I popped the bowl in the freezer for 15 minutes and voila! I was happily chowing down my own homemade cooling treat in moments (relatively speaking) from when I conceived it! After eating a bowl I placed the rest in an airtight container to enjoy later.
If you are looking to take care of your nutrient intake while enjoying your summer I suggest you try this recipe! Just don't tell your friends (or your kids)  it's good for them.
