Have you ever seen those cheesy Caribbean cruise commercials? The ones where Kathy-Lee Gifford is singing and the physically fit happy couples are frolicking along the beach holding hands and playfully splashing each other in the crystal clear ocean water?
One of these commercials got me daydreaming yesterday. I was imagining myself on the beach
chugging sipping a coconutty frozen drink while basking in the sun on my beach chair. I’m getting fanned off with a giant leaf. Then the daydream morphed into me realizing bikini season isn’t that far away, and pina coladas do nothing to turn me into the skinny lady on the commercial.
I snapped out of my dream with that reality check.
Bad Mindy: You really should go have a pina colada!
Good Mindy: It’s Monday lush.
Bad Mindy: Creamy coconutty deliciousness!
Good Mindy: Those puppies are loaded with sugar and calories! Thigh jiggle is not attractive.
Good Mindy for the win! That didn’t stop the craving though.
Enter Yoplait coconut Greek yogurt. I love coconut anything so the fact that Greek yogurt comes in this flavor make me a happy girl. I snagged some high protein cereal at good ole Tar-Jay last week. I’m using that for some crunch. This snack is packed with protein, weighs in at under 200 calories, and tastes delicious. Win!
Grab a parfait cup. Or if you’re me, a martini glass.
Sprinkle some cereal in the bottom.
Add a decent size dollop of yogurt.
Garnish with a little more crunch.
Dreamily stare into your martini glass and revert back to the daydream.
