Are you a Pinterest lover like myself?

Ever since I got a tablet a few years ago, it’s become my “unwinding” practice at the end of the night to sit on the couch and Pin a few things from my tablet. Maybe it’s for my home. Maybe it’s for a friends upcoming wedding or baby shower (that’s the season of life I’m in!) or maybe it’s a new low-carb dish to try out.

Pinterest can be a huge help to Weight-loss Surgery patients. Although, sometimes it can be a curse too. But that’s another blog

When Pinterest is used in a healthy and helpful way, it can be a Gastric Sleeve or Bypass patients good friend.

Maybe you’ve recently stumbled upon this Pin like I did…for Frozen Yogurt Covered Blueberries:

The Pin came from “Family Fresh Meals” and seemed to make for a very promising snack using Greek Yogurt and Blueberries. So I had to give it a try. Sometimes these great ideas don’t really come together how I think they might. I am happy to say…Not that case this time!

I followed the directions for using a toothpick to dip the blueberries into blueberry Greek yogurt. Then I put mine on a SilpatĀ® instead of parchment paper and froze them. I moved them to a plastic baggie and have really enjoyed the yummy little frozen treat! Highly recommended!

For bariatric patients, this snack would be great as an alternative to worse choices…especially in the evening. Blueberries are a lower sugar fruit, but still are sugar containing as well as the Greek yogurt. Use snack sized plastic baggies and keep yourself portioned. Certainly the lesser of the evils if you are looking for a cold treat on a summer night!
