Sheep Milk Yogurt Parfaits FTW | One To Nothin'

Sheep Milk Yogurt Parfaits FTW


There’s a slight chance that all the alcohol-sponsored posts I’ve been slaving over lately (this looks like hard work, right?) have taken a toll on my bod. Homegirl isn’t training for a marathon or chasing after toddlers all day anymore, so I’ve been feeling all the sugar and sitting during the week. 
While I did treat myself to a swanky ass gym membership a few months ago (helloooo, eucalyptus towels), I haven’t quite found the motivation Kensie of 2013 OTN had. Remember #OperationShakirabod? Ah, the good ol’ days.


No matter how many times I do it and feel great about it, waking up at 5:30am to workout never gets easier, so I finally accepted that it needs to be a combined effort. I’m cleaning up the diet. On Amazon Prime day I impulse-bought a Magic Bullet, and it’s my new favorite thing ever. I’ve been making protein smoothies for breakfast several days a week for a while now, and I’m an avid double-tapper of elaborate smoothie art, so I thought I’d give a smoothie parfait a go.  
 Let me tell you, that shit is way harder than it looks. Getting pieces of fruit to stick to the sides of a mason jar is a skill one simply cannot master in the wee hours of the morning. But I digress.
Here’s what you need for two servings:

1/4 cup chia seeds
2 cups almond milk
1 banana
1/4 cup frozen mixed berries
several figs
honey

Combine the chia seeds and one cup of almond milk and let them sit in the fridge overnight. The next morning, blend the banana, berries and another cup of almond milk and slice the figs. Place a dab of honey on the fig slices and stick them to the insides of the jar (be patient and let them dry lying on their sides if you have time), then pour half the smoothie mixture followed by chia pudding and vanilla yogurt. Top with more figs, chia seeds and whatever other goodies you may have lying around, and enjoy. 

If you're interested in trying this yogurt, use this coupon here and check the website to see where they sell it near you. I found mine at Sprouts. This stuff is delicious, and they are partnering with the Whole Kids Foundation during the month of September and donating $1 of every cup of yogurt sold to support schools and help improve children’s nutrition and wellness. So it's a win-win. 

Have you ever tried sheep milk? And more importantly, have you ever successfully stuck figs to the sides of your smoothie?

  2. I am the crazy girl at Trader Joe's taking all the figs. No soldiers left behind! They are my favorite fruit and I am so sad they are only here for a short time :( I also love adding them to my yogurt!
