Most people talk about how busy they are during the holidays. We’re busy then, too, but for our family, February to May is our “Busy season” Work picks up for my husband and I after the New Year. We have his birthday in February, mine in March, and Avery’s in April. Every weekend is jam packed with birthday parties for Avery’s friends. Seriously. Every. Single. Weekend. For MONTHS. Some weekends we have multiple parties! The kid is popular, what can I say? haha There’s Easter which means a trip “home” to New York, and Winter & Spring breaks which means camp or traveling or just time at home trying to keep Avery entertained. Then, of course, we have the usual school and activities business. We are always on the go.
Honestly, it is a lot of fun, and I enjoy our lifestyle. I don’t like being bored. But, I often feel like we are always in a rush!
We were expecting a blizzard this week, and I knew we’d be snowed in (or iced-in as Mother Nature would have it) so I thought it would be the perfect time to take a little time-out, and slow down a bit. In between work projects, of course! As a mom who works from home, my office never closes!
While shopping at Walmart for some of our Blizzard Survival supplies, I picked up a few extras.
There’s no chance of survival without coffee, and I knew I wouldn’t be able to get out to my favorite coffee shop, so I grabbed some Coffee-Mate Liquid Creamer! That way I could stir up the creamy goodness of French Vanilla or Hazelnut flavors for a smooth, sweet sip right at home!
Then I spotted the easy, convenient and delicious, Toll House Refrigerated Cookie Dough in fresh new flavors for Spring. Have you seen the Limited Edition flavors? Oh my! Strawberry Shortcake and Blueberry Lemon!!! You have got to try them!
And, then I re-stocked our baking cabinet with bags and bags of Toll House Morsels! I’m always looking to create new and delicious recipes with Nestlé Toll House.
I got up early on our snow day for 2 reasons. The first was that I had a TON of work to do, and I knew once Avery was up it would be harder to get things done. And second, I wanted to surprise my family with cookies!!
As much as I love baking from scratch, it can be really time consuming. The prep, the baking, the clean up (oh, how I hate the clean up!) So, the Nestlé Toll House refrigerated cookie dough is such a time saver! And, they are super yummy! I popped the cookies in the oven to bake, and made my coffee. It was so nice to slow down, and have a few minutes to myself to enjoy my morning coffee and a couple cookies for breakfast (don’t judge! You know you’d do the same thing!)
I sat down to work, and of course, that was the moment Avery came bounding into the room. Wide awake and full of energy. I’d love to say that I had wonderful projects planned for the day, many games for us to play, creative activities to occupy her time… I didn’t. You all know I love fun, pinteresty activities and projects, but some days, my parenting philosophy is SURVIVAL. One of my survival methods is bribery.
My Snow Day Survival bribe, was “Ice Cream Pops” That’s in quotes because they are really made with Greek Yogurt. But, my almost 5 year old HATES yogurt. So, I call it ice cream and it magically becomes her favorite treat! #momwin! So, I said “I have a whole lot of work to do today, if you let me get it done, and you play nicely, by yourself, I’ll make you ice cream pops, and you can play on your tablet!’
IT WORKED! She was a rock star for most of the morning, so I took a break from work, and got to work in the kitchen. The Blueberry Lemon cookies gave me an idea! Blueberry Lemon Frozen Yogurt pops! With Cookies & Cream! They were something different, and I knew they’d be a hit. They were super easy, too and you only need 4 ingredients!
Blueberry Lemon Frozen Yogurt Pops
with Cookies & Cream
What you need:
-2 cups Lemon Greek Yogurt
-1 cup blueberries
-1 cup Coffee-Mate French Vanilla Liquid Creamer
-3 Blueberry Lemon cookies, crumbled
What you do:
In a bowl, mix the lemon yogurt, and cookie pieces.
Spoon the mixture into your ice pop molds.
Tap the molds on the counter to make sure the yogurt fills the mold, and to remove air bubbles.
In a blender, blend the blueberries and Coffee-Mate French Vanilla Liquid Creamer together.
Pour the blueberry mixture into the molds.
*You can leave a few berries whole, and add those into the molds for bigger chunks of fruit!
Add your ice pop sticks, and put a few more chunks of cookie on the top if you’d like!
Pop them in the freezer, and wait until they are frozen (5-6 hours)
They are SO GOOD! I think adding the chunks of cookie into the lemon yogurt really made them super awesome. I personally prefer ice cream/froyo that has “stuff” in it! These pops are so easy to make, even for the busiest moms! And they are a fun spring treat, even on the coldest New England days! The seasonal flavors, and pastel colors, make these Blueberry Lemon Frozen Yogurt Pops a great Easter treat! Looking for more fun recipes for the family on-the-go? Hurry and click HERE
