People told me I was crazy to have my kids eight years apart. I’ll be honest though, I just laughed it off. I thought they just didn’t know that this well laid plan would mean that I had one-on-one time with both my kids in a meaningful way. I really thought I had it all figured out….until I discovered for myself that the only way to describe life with a tween and a preschooler is complete chaos.
Now I know at some point in the future things will change and I will desperately miss these crazy days filled with school drop off and pick up, sports activities, after school events and play dates. But right now, at this point in my life, pretty much the only thing I miss is me time! In fact, just last week as I looked at my frazzled face in the mirror, I knew that something had to change. That there had to be some way to work a few minutes for ME into the craziness of the day. The more I thought about it, the more determined I became! Fifteen minutes was not too much to ask was it? And I immediately knew just where I could squeeze it into my day! The only thing missing was a guilt free indulgent treat to make it memorable!
Knowing that I needed to find the perfect balance of taste, nutrition and flavor to make the most of my much needed alone time, I headed to Walmart for a little inspiration! I was looking for something sweet and satisfying but I didn’t want it to undo the little bit of exercise I desperately try to squeeze into my day. As I bypassed the ice cream aisle, I was a little sad. But as soon as I spotted the Müller® Ice Cream Inspired Yogurt in the diary section, my frown turned upside down because I instantly had a recipe idea that I was sure would make my “me-moments” sweet!
Available in Raspberry Chocolate Chip, Mint Chocolate Chip and Vanilla Bean, Müller® Ice Cream Inspired Yogurt was the perfect alternative to traditional ice cream! With less sugar that than other yogurts and only 190-210 calories in each 5.3 ounce container, I knew they were a quick and easy way to sweeten up my few and far between moments alone! Unable to decide between the three delicious varieties, I filled my cart with Müller® Ice Cream Inspired Yogurt and headed towards the check out, anxious to get home and have a few precious moments alone before kid pickup started!
Once I arrived home, I put my Müller® Ice Cream Inspired Yogurt to the taste test! I was instantly taken with the rich and indulgent flavor and knew that this special treat was just the right amount of wrong! Knowing how good my new favorite treat tasted alone, I decided it was time to really indulge and turn it into a lower fat Ice Cream Sundae Inspired Trifle! Since I had all the ingredients I needed on hand to do just that with the Raspberry Chocolate Chip variety, I set to work.
What You Will Need:
1 Container of Müller® Ice Cream Inspired Raspberry Chocolate Chip Yogurt
1/2 Cup of Angel Food Cake (cut into cubes)
1/4 Cup of Fresh Raspberries
Light Whipped Cream
A Few Chocolate Chips
How to Make It:
I started by adding half of my container of yogurt to the bottom of a clear glass.
Next, I added in half of my cubed Angel Food Cake and half of my raspberries, layering them as I went.
I then repeated the layering process, using all of my Müller® Ice Cream Inspired Yogurt, Angel Food Cake and all but one raspberry. By this point my cup was looking pretty full and delicious!
Finally, I topped my trifle with light whipped cream, sprinkled on my chocolate chips and finished my creation with a fresh raspberry!
And ta-da! In just minutes I had an easy treat that is sure to make my moments alone feel like a true indulgence! And since this delicious recipe has seven grams of protein from the 6% milk fat Müller® Ice Cream Inspired Yogurt, I didn’t have to feel guilty about enjoying it to the max!
So, now that I had created what in my mind was the perfect anytime treat, I had to figure out when I could enjoy it daily. Knowing that I have about twenty minutes mid morning when both the kids are in school, my chores are done and the house is quiet, I designated it my Müller® Me Time! Then I remembered to charge my iPad so that I could pair my trifle with browsing my favorite sites or reading a new book in my few minutes alone!
And the end result? A few short minutes that made a BIG difference! Just by putting aside my daily responsibility for a few minutes each day and pairing my indulgent treat with one of my favorite ways to relax, I could ensure that the stresses of the day literally melted away with each and every bite. Within those few minutes, I could refresh, recharge and renew in an indulgent way that I didn’t have to feel guilty about!
I quickly discovered that if only for a few minutes a day, every mom needs to remember that she is more than just a mom. And when spent with my newly discovered Müller® Ice Cream Inspired Yogurt, it was the perfect #MullerMoment to make all right with the world! I can’t wait to try turning all three Müller® Ice Cream Inspired Yogurt flavors into delicious trifles that allow me to indulge, escape and make time for me!
