Yogurt Covered Blueberries & Giveaway

Yogurt Covered Blueberries | The Hungry Housewife

If you follow me on Instagram and Facebook, you will know I went blueberry picking and came home with over 7 pounds of blueberries.

Do blueberries remind you of Violet Beauregarde from Willy Wonka? No? Just me?

Back on track Leslie, back on track….

So what does one do with over 7 pounds of blueberries?

Well, you eat so many that you feel like Violet Beauregarde. “Violet, your turning Violet.”

I measured them into 1 cup amounts, put them in baggies and popped them in the freezer.

I have lots of plans for them.

Well, ViSalus contacted me and wanted me to create a recipe for them using their shape mix…you might have heard them referred to as “Body by Vi™” or heard people talking about the Body By Vi™ Challenge. People loose crazy amounts of weight! Go look at all the success stories here.

I am always on the hunt for a good grab and go breakfast or lunch, well because I am always on the go, and unfortunately don’t have time to sit down and eat.

I received my ViSalus in the mail and mixed myself up a shake. I mixed 12 oz. Unsweetened Vanilla Almond milk and 2 scoops of Vi-Shape®. IT TASTES LIKE CAKE MIX…I swear.  Oh, and I figured it was 3 WW points for the shake. 3 points for breakfast..yes please.

Sooooo, I am totally incorporating these HIGH protein, low carb,low fat shakes into my point counting.Click here for the nutritional info on the shakes.

Anyhow, back to recipe thought process….. those blueberries.

I took a 6 oz. container of Non Fat Greek Yogurt and mixed in 1 1 /2 scoops of the Vi-Shape®. I could have scarfed up the Vi-Shape® spike yogurt up, but those blueberries needed attention.

I dipped the blueberries in the yogurt, placed them on some non-stick foil and stuck them back in the freezer until frozen.

BAM..super healthy snack.

They were delish. I have always loved munching on frozen fruit, but adding the extra protein and nutrition from the Yogurt and Vi-Shape shake mix, made them extra delightful and nutritious.

If you don’t have any Vi-Shape® on hand at this moment and you HAVE to have these blueberries right now, you can just substitute some vanilla Greek Yogurt and they would be equally scrumptious.
