With temperatures this hot, it’s never to early to eat a frozen treat. Enjoy these frozen yogurt parfait popsicles for breakfast!
I don’t know about you, but it is so stinking hot here in Columbus! We have had heat advisories all weekend which means that I’m not exactly going to be weeding my vegetable garden today even though it desperately needs it. Maybe tomorrow morning before it hits 90 at noon. Until then, I will be indoors enjoying the A/C and turning on the oven as little as possible. I seem to recall leaving Memphis primarily because of the disgusting heat (and the whole graduated without a job lined up thing), why does it insist on following me to Ohio!?
Being that it is so hot to early in the morning, the temptation to eat ice cream for breakfast has been pretty strong. What better way to way up than to sit out side, sweating at 8 am, while eating a cold bowl of your favorite ice cream? Not gonna lie, I’ve had ice cream for breakfast on more than one occasion but after eating out 4 times this week for Restaurant Week I had to say no if I am ever going to fit into my pants again. So how does yogurt parfait on a stick sound? More specifically, frozen vanilla yogurt layered with chocolate coconut granola and berries. I guess it’ll suffice ;-).
