Foodalicious Friday

Posted: October 26, 2012 in Recipes

I Pinterested. Yes, it’s true. Last Friday night Doug was out of town for hockey so I was hanging out doing work at home. I needed a break and thought, “Hm, I could use some more workouts…. I’ll check out what Pinterest has.” Yes, that’s how it always starts. What happened? I found recipes. Thank you, Alli, because you’re the one who pinned them all and that’s how I found them all!

Peanut Butter Fruit Dip

The recipe calls for vanilla, but I tried it with plain first.

Get the best of both worlds—peanut butter and yogurt! It’s kinda like peanut butter ice cream 😀 And seriously, this is amazing. And addicting.

Ingredients:

  • One 5.3oz. container of nonfat Greek vanilla or plain yogurt.
  • 2 Tbsp. natural peanut butter (I used crunchy)
  • ½ tsp. honey
  • Dash or two of cinnamon

Directions:
Mix it all together and serve it with slices of fruit (apples, bananas, pears, pineapple, strawberries, etc.). Store in fridge.

The finished product! I was lazy — and hungry — so I just kept it in the yogurt cup. Hey, it worked.

Grapefruit Margarita
Tis the season for grapefruits! This makes two margaritas…. And oh man…. So good.

Ingredients:

  • 2c. ruby red grapefruit juice (or I used one fresh grapefruit’s juice)
  • 5 fresh mint leaves, torn in half (okay, I didn’t use these b/c I didn’t have ’em)
  • 1-2 shots of orange liqueur (I used Triple Sec)
  • 4 shots tequila (I used 1800)

Directions:
Combine all the ingredients in a shaker or pitcher and stir well. Pour over ice.
