Blueberry Raspberry Breakfast Fro-yo

This has been my absolute go to breakfast these past few weeks. I don't know what it is about frozen yogurt, it just has a great tangy sweetness! The best part about this fro-yo is that you don't need an ice cream maker, just a bowl and a spoon will do :).

I'm hooked on these Vega smoothie mixes! (my favourite so far has to be Bodacious Berry). Not the biggest fan of the Tropical Tango, it has a sort of artificial Trident gum taste :P.  

1 cup yogurt (I used half greek half 2.5%)
Handful frozen blueberries
Handful frozen raspberries
1 scoop Vega Energizing Smoothie (I used Tropical Tango)
Shredded coconut (or any other toppings you like!)

Combine yogurt, vega, and berries in a bowl. Mash with spoon until raspberries have blended with yogurt (takes about a minute or 2). As you mash the yogurt freezes around the berries and you're left with grade A frozen yogurt! Top with bananas and coconut, and voila!

We're back! Fruit Plate + 2 Toasts

Hey everyone! I don't know if anyone noticed the slight hiatus we went on. :)...We were working on a theatre project that consumed most of our time since October, but now that it's wrapped up, we're back! And with one of those fancy shmancy DSLR cameras too!

This is a fruit plate my sisters and I made on Christmas morning, every year it seems to be a tradition to make the most disgustingly colourful fruit plate possible and arrange it in rainbow fashion. We posted one from last year too!

Pom seeds, apples, strawberries, grapefruit, cantaloupe, oranges, pineapple, banana, grapes, blues and blackberries!
Toast is the perfect canvas to play around with different toppings. We have the tiniest kitchen, like literally the size of a closet and conveniently have a super large toaster oven so toast making is definitely a production but so worth it! Feel free to sub blueberries for any other fruit or even chocolate!
