Cobalt blue is on deck for fall! I can get enough of the hue. From eyeliner (love this one) to eye shadow to nail lacquer (another fave)! And speaking of nail color…I most certainly plan to paint the town and my nails too with this vibrant shade of blue!

Mango-Orange Yogurt Pops

IMG_0933

 

As a child, I loved to get ice cream pops from the ice cream truck during the Summer.  Nothing has changed really, just now I make my own or buy them from the grocery store.  Making your own pops is always the best idea as you can control your ingredients.  I’m a bit excessive about reading food labels and knowing what’s in stuff and picking the best for my family.  So, I decided to make my little girl some kid-friendly fruit pops.  I had one mango, some greek yogurt, orange juice, and honey.  I looked up a quick recipe and in 10 minutes they were in the freezer.  Very easy, very fast!!  We had a Friday sweet treat ready to go once she got home from school.  At first she wanted nothing to do with them, but after she took one lick, she was hooked and quickly gobbled it up.

Here’s what you need…

1 cup of diced fresh or frozen mango (1 mango) or any fruit you like

1 cup of greek yogurt

1 teaspoon of orange juice

1-2 tablespoons of honey, depending how sweet you want it

kid-friendly ice pop molds

In a food processor or blender, add diced mango, yogurt, orange juice, and honey and blend until smooth and creamy.  Taste a bit, if it’s to your liking pour or scoop into ice pop molds.  Freeze for 6 hours or overnight.  To enjoy, just run a little water on frozen pops for easy release.  You and your little ones will definitely enjoy!  June sure did!

Enjoy the last days of Summer with these yummy Pops!!!

Back to School Lunch Boxes

Do y’all remember these?? When I was in school, these were the kind of metal lunch boxes we rocked. We had our lunches of sandwiches, chips, fruit and a juice box all in these metal containers that featured our favorite cartoons, television shows or candy. Unless your lunchbox was stuffed, all the food was likely to get moved around and squished. No bueno! And don’t even think about trying to keep foods a certain temperature, there was no insulation! But hey, it worked and we all survived. SN: Ladybird T, you might need the snoopy lunch box for the boys!

Well kids these days have it just a bit better. There is definitely more effort put into creating healthy and balanced lunches for school kids. Check out these fun and unique lunch guides for kids here and here. What I love are the lunch containers to pack these snacks and treats in. I’m all for it and think they would work perfectly for adult lunches too ;)
