Too busy to complicate things? 🤪🤯 If this is you right now (like me) you have to try these super simple yogurt ice pops! ❄️🍭 I can’t say sorry I’ve been MIA, because I think you have the right to be away from IG without apologizing for it! But I have been really busy (and will be for the rest of June) with job projects + private stuff. So food and snacks have to be super simple atm! 😎 1) Granola + a little date syrup, pressed down firmly into ice pop moulds 2) Coconut (or regular high-fat) unsweetened yogurt 3) Berry compote (I used bluebs + maple syrup) 4) Freeze for at least 4 hours. Enjoy! 😘☀️#WellAndVibrant ___ #icepops #icepopsicle #abbotkinneys #coconutyogurt #coconutyoghurt #summereats #summersnack #summertime #goodmoodfood #foodisfuel #wholefooddiet #foodwinewomen #foodintheair #realfoodrevolution #thatsdarling #persuepretty #healthandwellness #eatwholefoods #cleanfoodshare #wellandgoodeats #feedfeed #blueberries #mindbodygreen #mindbodygram
