clementines, dates and yogurt.

It was this blog that inspired me to start reorganizing our apartment. She's now on a permanent (?) refined sugar and flour fast and I'm kind of inspired to do the same. Especially when she shares recipes like this! It looks so delicious; can't wait to try it out after I'm done with the gestational diabetes :)


This recipe is flour free and sugar free, though you can certainly add agave or honey if you are accustomed to sweeter desserts. Try it once plain. Although yogurt can be sour for some, dates are impossibly sweet. If you get a bite of date in every spoonful, you shouldn’t need a sweetener. If 2-4 dates aren’t enough, try more.
1 cup non fat Greek yogurt
1 cup peeled and sectioned clementines, about three
2-4 dates, chopped
1 tablespoon flax seed, ground or whole
1 tablespoon unsweetened shredded coconut
1 tablespoon Udo’s Oil 3.6.9 Blend (optional, but if you don’t use the oil consider regular fat yogurt)

Dump everything in a bowl. Eat.
Or, if you’re feeling fancy, divide your ingredients by halves or thirds and layer it in pretty glass dishes. Store in refrigerator or eat.

  1. Hey Lauren-
    I wanted to pass along something that was given to me...the Liebster blog award.

    It is typically given to dear, favorite, or beloved small blogs (ones with <200 readers) as a way to recognize and encourage one another. And, of course, I had to pass this along to someone who is very dear to me and because I love reading what you write.

    The rules for the award if you wish to pass it on are this: Thank the blogger that nominated you by linking back to them; share your top 5 choices for the award and leave a comment on each blog; and post the award on your blog. No worries if you'd rather not post it - only do so if it seems right to you.
