Day 219

Day 219 - I'm still waiting for the sun to come out but we really do need the rain.  For lunch today D has chicken tortelini with a cheese, red pepper, black sesame seed hello kitty, rolled up turkey on HK picks, string cheese, pineapple and a HK container with some coconut dip that I made.

Twice a week I get one of the neighbor's kids off the bus and her and D do their homework together.  I call it "Homework Club" just to make it sound more fun than it actually is.  I always try to make them a special snack to have while they do their homework.  Yesterday I had the fresh pineapple that needed to be cut and eaten before it went too far.  I'm sure the pineapple alone would have been enough for the girls but I always like to have something for dipping.  I was going to try to come up with something with a few things I had on hand cream cheese, s/f cool whip, coconut butter and whatever else I came up with.  Well I went to the fridge and discovered that my cream cheese was expired.  So I went with greek yogurt.

I am guessing at the amounts but this is what I did...

1 C greek yogurt
1/4 C coconut butter (I later found this to be completely unnecessary but it's in there anyway)
2 T cream of coconut (like for pina coladas)

I mixed all of this together in my magic bullet.  It tasted ok but was kind of runny so I decided to add 1 T coconut flour.  This really thickend it up and improved the coconut flavor.  I put it in the fridge for about 1/2 hour to set up.  Then I folded in a small container of s/f cool whip.  It is really delicious and tastes great with the pineapple!
