Renegade Craft Fair ATX Recap

A couple of weeks ago we participated in our first ever Renegade Craft Fair. It was an incredible experience and we are so grateful to all the people that stopped by to visit our booth. Here are some shots of our set up for Renegade.

The chalkboard display was very labor intensive to make, but I love the way it turned out. We decided to feature several new items at the fair including silk screen posters, textiles, and tote bags. These items will be available on Satchel & Sage this Summer.

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.
