Things are kinda hectic around here with all the summer activities piling up on our schedule, projects we want to tackle and work of course.

I am also prepping for my photo shoot and Quinn’s 2nd birthday party in June!

So you can imagine, food these days is pretty “grab-and-go” for us.  We can have more fun this way! 11196233_817878458304035_614252195582562438_n 11169897_815811401844074_6276639625536325068_n

I prep most of our food, but to be able to dump, spread, or mix quickly is a life saver.

Quinn hasn’t been eating the best for me especially when it comes to meat, so I like to give her yogurt or cottage cheese for a little protein boost since she loves them.  We recently tried Yulu yogurt and she is hooked!  “Mama, I want nilla!” <<Vanilla is my favorite flavor from Yulu as well because it tastes like real vanilla bean!

Rob isn’t entirely a fan of Greek yogurt because of it’s thickness and bitterness, but we need yogurt that has ingredients we can pronounce and a substantial amount of protein.  Yulu yogurt is the perfect mix for us; it has a thick creaminess that is out of this world and tastes REAL.  This Aussie Style yogurt is double smoothed with honest ingredients.  Let’s just say, we are hooked!

So we have been experimenting with some fun summer recipes to make with Yulu yogurt and here are three we are loving right now in between our summer activities!

Healthier fruit pizza! Gluten free sugar cookie mix + Yulu yogurt + fruit. Added protein with the yogurt helps balance this recipe out. Perfect for summer parties if you make a build your own fruit pizza bar! Guilt free pancakes! Eggs, banana, protein powder make the pancake then top with protein packed Yulu yogurt and whatever toppings you desire! The perfect summer snack! Frozen yogurt bark made with blueberries and Yulu yogurt

I show you how I quickly whip up each recipe in this video.

Here are the recipes for you to pin/save/print!

Protein Power Fruit Pizza (Gluten Free Dough)

Ingredients

  • 1 bag Pamela's sugar cookie mix
  • 1 Large egg
  • 1 stick unsalted butter
  • Yulu yogurt ((any flavor you prefer))
  • fresh fruit ((any variety you prefer))

Optional

  • shredded coconut

Directions

Mix and bake Pamela's gluten free sugar cookies according to the directions on the package. Make one large crust or cookie shapes for mini-personal fruit pizzas.
Once the cookies are cooled, top each with Yulu yogurt and fresh fruit. Add shredded coconut for some fun!

Yogurt Topped Protein Pancakes

Ingredients

  • 1/2 cup chocolate Quest protein powder ((or any flavor protein powder you prefer))
  • 2 ripe bananas (mashed well)
  • 2 Large eggs
  • 1/1 cup Yulu yogurt (vanilla) (or any flavor you prefer)
  • fresh fruit of choice ((optional))
  • shredded coconut ((optional))

Directions

Mash the bananas in a medium bowl. Add the protein powder and eggs. Mix until you have a pancake batter. The batter will be slightly thicker than normal pancake mix.
Cook the pancakes on low/medium heat. Be careful not to burn them.
Top the pancake with a dollop of Yulu yogurt and fresh fruit. Repeat until you have a stack then top with coconut flakes.

Frozen Yogurt Bark

Ingredients

  • 3 cups blueberry Yulu yogurt ((or any flavor you prefer))
  • 1/2 cup blueberries ((or any fresh fruit you prefer))

Directions

In a lightly greased glass baking dish, spread a thin layer of Yulu yogurt on the bottom. Add fresh blueberries and more yogurt on top. Freeze for one hour.
Remove the yogurt dish from freezer and cover with plastic wrap touching the yogurt. Freeze for a few more hours.
Once the yogurt is ready to be eaten, place the baking dish in warm water to help the yogurt release from the edges. Pull the yogurt out of the dish and break into chunks. Enjoy immediately or return to freezer individually wrapped if eating later.
