17 Day Diet – Day 5

*** Wanted to give huge props to the terrific “mrsalexzan” exercise post yesterday. Great original idea and excellent workout. Thanks for being such an inspiration! ***

The 17 Day Diet Challenge:

An update on how it’s going – 4 1/2 days – 2.2 pounds!!

Ok, hungry, very hungry but Greek yogurt is saving the day. After having my fruit snack this morning, it was time for the probiotic one and I was desperate so I made up a quick, easy snack recipe. If you like coconut and Mars bars, it’s nice alternative to the fruity stuff.

“Mars Bar” Yogurt:

1 cup (or about 6 ounces) fat free greek yogurt (any brand)

1 teaspoon coconut extract

1/2 teaspoon almond extract

1/4 teaspoon vanilla extract

1 teaspoon cocoa powder

4 packets of truvia, stevia, or other non-sugar sweetener (to taste)


Add all ingredients to the yogurt. Mix up, chill in freezer for about 5 minutes, mix again, and enjoy!

  1. Oooh. That sounds yummy! I like to make fruit smoothies with greek yogurt and fruit. I always add a touch of vanilla and cinnamon or nutmeg or cloves to give it a nice pie-like flavor. But I like the mars bar idea!!

  2. You had such a great idea – glad to be able to spread the word. The snack is awesome and really does help with the hunger pangs. Enjoy!
