Happy Valentine’s Day friends 🙂
I hope you get to enjoy some time with your loved ones tonight!
I made you a little dessert. A fun spin on the traditional calorie-laden caramel apple. You know, like the ones from Rocky Mountain Chocolate Factory?
Last week, my friends at Stonyfield sent me a fun little valentine’s day package! *Free sample. All opinions are my own.
That’s right…caramel and chocolate flavored Greek Yogurt!
Whenever I think of caramel, I think of caramel apples, even though I don’t really ever eat them. To be honest, I’m not the biggest caramel fan….so I wasn’t actually sure that I was going to like this little dessert I whipped up for myself! But I kept an open mind, and it turns out I loved it!
Here’s how it went down:
One of my favorite go-to “desserts”, (especially right after I graduated from college-I made these all.the.time) is sauteed cinnamon apples. All I do is slice an apple up into really thin slices, put them in a saucepan with a little bit of water and some cinnamon and saute them until they’re nice and soft.
I usually top the slices with a little bit of vanilla ice cream or yogurt, but last night I got the brilliant idea to add the caramel yogurt!!
Let me just say….YUM! I liked this yogurt way better than I thought I would. The caramel flavor wasn’t too strong, but was still definitely present and it paired perfectly with the apples! Add a few chocolate chips and you’ve got yourself a pretty tasty little treat – that won’t undo all your hard work at the gym!
Today’s workout: Put together a workout that involved a lot of burpees! A challenge for me because I hate burpees: Pin It
I was definitely ready to be done by the 4th round!
