Homemade Fro-Yo


There is a frozen yogurt shop dangerously close to my house. In search of a more affordable and even easier to access alternative, I broke out my neglected Cuisinart Ice Cream Maker and made fro-yo for the first time.  It turned out delicious, low fat, and refreshing. I used a basic fro-yo recipe from the Cuisinart manual and modified it by using chobani greek yogurt, 1% low fat milk instead of whole and adding chocolate chips.

Very Berry Chocolate Chip FroYo Recipe :

Preparation: about 15 – 20 minutes; 25 – 30 minutes chilling time; optional 2 hours to “ripen” in freezer.

Makes about eight 1/2-cup servings.

2 cups lowfat vanilla yogurt

1/2 cup 1% milk

1/4 cup sugar

1 12-ounce bag frozen mixed berries, puréed and strained to remove seeds

1/2 cup of chocolate chips

Combine the yogurt, milk, and sugar in a medium mixing bowl; using a hand mixer on medium speed, mix until sugar is dissolved, about 1-1/2 to 2 minutes. With the mixer on low speed, add the berry purée and mix until combined, about 30 – 40 seconds. Turn the machine ON, pour mixture into freezer bowl through ingredient spout and let mix until thickened, about 25  30 minutes.

DIY Terrarium

After a long sabbatical, I decided to have a craft meet up last weekend. I’ve been zealously pinning terrariums all week, and set out to make one for every room in my house. Fortunately, I wasn’t alone in this plan and several other peeps wanted to join in and make DIY Terrariums. Thank you to my friends for your participation and enthusiasm–crafting is so much more fun when we are doing it together!

Here is what you need for the job:

Soil:
sand, rocks, gravel- you can mix and match according to your plant of choice. I use rocks on the bottom for drainage and then add topsoil.

Plants: Succulents, Air plants, Ferns, Fake plants- fake moss or succulents look very realistic.

Container-Vase, glass bowl, light bulb, Mason jar, Starbucks bottle- you can use anything really, so get creative!

To amp up the cute factor, we added tiny animals and Miniature Toy Figures to our terrariums. For small figurines check the doll house section at your local craft store, or a 25 cent toy machine at the grocery store. I just thought of it, but a LIL HOMIES figurine would have been perfect …next time.

Gutting a light bulb is quite a feat, but we managed to achieve it without injury. Here is a great post via Hipster Home on how to make a light bulb terrarium. Also, another helpful resource for instructions is Terrarium Craft: Create 50 Magical, Miniature Worlds. For more pics of our craft meet up check out Kelsey’s recap via Minted Life and Monica’s recap via Nona’s Market.

My  sister-in-law Tori lives out of town, but wanted to participate from afar. She created this beautiful table lamp terrarium.


P.S. For the occasion I made everyone these terrarium prints-
