GODIVA™ Double Chocolate Raspberry Parfait

Are you familiar with GODIVA Belgium 1926? A 90 year old Chocolate brand founded by a Belgian family whose passion for Chocolate drove them to greatness. Might I add really expensive chocolate, reasons why people think I’m rich I have an expensive taste no literally. You would think it was their family name but it’s not I guess Lady Godiva was a legend so they named the company in her honor. One day I’ll google her.

Can you believe GODIVA was appointed an official chocolatier to the Royal Court of Belgium? Make a long story short high-quality Belgian chocolate. I told you expensive. (Assorted Chocolate Gold Gift Box Set $78) Today GODIVA has over 600 owned Boutiques in over 100 countries.

Fruit and Yogurt Smoothie

I had an idea come to mind about how I wanted to use this organic simply balanced vanilla yogurt pouches so I thought why not cut up some fresh fruit, pour the yogurt into the blender and make a smoothie out of it this is nothing I have done before. It’s not too bad I actually like vanilla as a flavor I just don’t like it as a scent.

I know we’re used to green looking smoothies and juices but because the yogurt is vanilla flavored it doesn’t have much of a color and the white colored fruits overpowered the plum I used. Some people are like what is that umm a smoothie just like making any other smoothies.

I’m impressed because I came up with my own recipe I didn’t go searching through Pinterest or anyone’s cookbook I put together a bunch of fruit I eat and used yogurt as the liquid base. Here you have it don’t knock it until you try it, I mean you put fruit in your yogurt or no? but if these are not your ingredients I completely understand.
