This week we’ve had a mix of spring showers and sunny days, meaning that I’ve been alternating between craving warm comfort food and light, delicious treats to keep me cool. The only problem? I always crave ice cream when I come back from a long walk in the sun. Don’t get me wrong – craving ice cream is no problem, but if I were to give in and eat a pint each time that I wanted some, I’d probably start to resemble a nice, round scoop of the delicious stuff.
This week I came up with a snack that looks as beautiful as a freshly decorated cupcake, but is simple and cool. So get outside and enjoy the sunshine, because when you come back from your walk, from mowing the lawn, or from lounging poolside you can whip this up and enjoy a nutritious snack!
Frosted Grapefruit Coolers
1/2 cup Greek yogurt
1 teaspoon cinnamon
Optional: 1 teaspoon brown sugar, lemon and lime zest
1. Cut the grapefruit in half. With a knife, cut around the edges of the fruit. Then, cut the fruit into segments, but leave all of the fruit inside of the peel.
2. In a small bowl, mix yogurt with cinnamon.
3. Top the grapefruit with the yogurt mixture. If you want it to look prettier, Put the yogurt in a sandwich bag and then pipe it onto the grapefruit. Next, sprinkle with optional toppings if you’d like.
Hope you enjoy the snack! And to keep this post citrus-y and sweet, here’s your little snippet of literature for the day. It’s a poem that’s a lot heavier than the snack I just suggested, but it’s an interesting one to think about. It’s called “Sunday Morning” and it’s by Wallace Stevens. Hope you enjoy!!
