It's all Greek to me

I am definitely a fan of the infamous peanut butter and jelly sandwich. It brings back so many childhood memories. I can remember sitting by the pool on really hot summer days, and mama would bring us out a PB&J and a Capri Sun juice bag! ...and then we would wait for 15 agonizing minutes before we could jump back in the pool. Oh, the good old days: when the biggest worries in life consisted of what cartoons were showing on Saturday morning and having to eat all of my sweet potatoes before I could leave the table. (Of course, now I have no problem finishing all of my food.)

Well if PB&J is a nostalgic topic for you, or if you have (for some odd reason) never even had a PB&J, I got a recipe for you!
This recipe is one of my very favorites! I absolutely love it, and it has become a go-to recipe for for when I am craving something sweet. (sometimes I feel really courageous and add a few raisins and chocolate chips! Whoo!
I came up with it a couple of months ago; it is so good.
All I have to say is: try it. Please just try it. It is a really good {and healthy!} way to curb your craving for that good, old-fashioned PB&J..

PB&J Greek Yogurt:


-1/2 cup of plain Greek yogurt (you can use the vanilla kind, but I use the plain because it doesn't have any added sugar)

-1 Tbs PB2 (or regular peanut butter)

-1 Tbs No-Sugar-Added Nesquick

-1/2 cup frozen strawberries

-sweetener (sweetener is needed ONLY if you are using PLAIN Greek yogurt. Do not add any if you are using vanilla Greek yogurt. I use about 2 Tbs. Granulated stevia)

*NOTE: depending on how sweet your strawberries are, you may want to add a little stevia (or any other sweetener to them to. Do so after mashing them.)


1. Mix together the Greek yogurt, peanut butter, Nesquick, and sweetener (if using).
2. Defrost strawberries in the microwave until thawed. (about 45 seconds) Mash strawberries with a fork/knife.
3. Pour on top of Green yogurt.
4. Indulge.

Do you have a special food that brings back fond memories from childhood?
