1 c frozen dark cherries, pitted (reserve 3 or 4 berries)
Sprinkle of almonds (mine are blanched slivers)
1/2 t almond extract
2 t honey
In blender, combine yogurt, cherries, almond extract and honey until smooth. Don't forget to reserve a few berries.
Pour into a small container to freeze.
After 30 minutes, when it's starting to thicken and set, chop remaining berries.
Gently fold berries and almonds into mixture.
Freeze until set to desired consistency. Mine was frozen for one hour, in total, for the consistency in the photo (just beyond soft serve).
21 Day Fix
1 purple, 1 red, sprinkle of blue
I don't like my frozen yogurt super sweet, so taste it before you freeze it. If you find it too bitter, just add more honey or even stevia. You could also sprinkle it with raw sugar before serving, if you're a fan of sprinkles. ;)

This was such a blast year, I decided to make it an annual event! The Facebook group starts December 1, so join now! It’s open to everyone, so grab a friend, coworker, spouse or your favorite elf and hop in.
1. Get your motivation ready!
2. Print the 25 Days of Fitness calendar. The “fit to page” option on your printer will work best for this. The printable is located here.
3. Display it so you see it DAILY! Tape it to your bathroom mirror, your fridge, your closet door, your desk, etc.
4. For each of the 25 days, GET MOVING. Do at least 10 – 20 minutes of dedicated exercise each day.
5. For each day you complete, give yourself a high five. Checkmark or sticker each day of the month you complete.
6. Congratulate yourself for staying active through the holidays!
Each day you’ll be assigned a specific fitness challenge. Stay active in the group. The more active you are, the more likely you are to be hit by the prize patrol! At the end of the month, those that post photos of their completed calendars will be entered into a prize drawing, too!
Eep, the word is out! TODAY starts the annual holiday sale. This year, over 25 items are included. Everything from apparel to supplements to fitness programs.
Here is a handful of my personal recommendations this year. I think these are the best value and some of the hottest programs included in the sale! To check out all of the available sale items, head over to the holiday shop.
Happy shopping! I knocked out a HUGE chunk of my holiday list last year with this sale. Hip Hop Abs proved to be a well-received gift for friends!
This is a great idea for the kiddos on Thanksgiving afternoon. Cover the table with kraft paper, bowls of fruit, sliced veggies and skewers. Let them go to town on decorating their own turkey. Use their finished creation as a centerpiece for the dinner table. They’ll be so proud to see you display their masterpiece!
Make sure to snap a photo of them with their finished turkey, too. It will be fun to do this each year as a Thanksgiving tradition.
What did you just say? Yes, that’s right. This bad boy won’t consume your 21 Day Fix [precious] blue container.
And before you start yelling at me, here’s why… traditional hummus is made with oil & tahini. It’s not necessary, but that’s the authentic way to make it. I simply replace the oil with broth and, voila, you’ve got oil-free hummus.
