Eats // Frozen yogurt bon bons

You know how they say Trix are for kids? Well so are these bite sized frozen yogurt bon bon treats. Did I also mention they’re low-calorie and have sprinkles?

Ok I mayyyy have a bit of an obsession with fruit and coconut. I don’t know what it is, but creamy, smooth coconut combined with the juicy, bright flavor of fruit is pretty much a winning combination.

I recently went to a Thai restaurant where I had the classic mango sticky rice dessert, which inspired me to remix it into light, pudding version where tropical mango is paired with a delicate vanilla-infused coconut. It’s the perfect dessert for sitting out on the patio on those hot summer nights!
