Happy accidents happen out of necessity. More specifically, the cravings that come on late at night. This was how this lovely recipe came about.
October is the National Breast Cancer Awareness Month to support the cause for finding a cure for this cancer. Every year, more than 290,000 women are diagnosed with breast cancer. It is the most common cancer among women in the United States and it is the second leading cause of cancer death in women. In 2010, according to the American Cancer Society’s estimate, 39,840 women died from breast cancer. Although the number is lower than from previous years, that is still a staggering number.
To keep the number of deaths on a downward slide, Breast Cancer Awareness Month reminds us that the fight is far from over; to keep us aware, keep us educated and empower us. Many organizations, as you may have noticed, are supporting this cause and Dannon is one of them.
With every Dannon yogurt that you buy with the pink lid on it, there is a unique code printed under it. Enter that code at www.cupsofhope.com by November 30 and Dannon will donate 10 cents to the National Breast Cancer Foundation, Inc. ® (NBCF). The money raised will go to the NBCF, to provide women free mammograms and support breast cancer research nationwide.
Dannon pledges to donate at least $500,000 to the NBCF but they hope to increase that donation to $1.5 million this year.
Dannon and all the other participating companies are doing their part. Let’s do our part by supporting the companies who are promoting Breast Cancer Awareness Month.
“”I wrote this review while participating in a blog tour campaign by Mom Central on behalf of Dannon. In addition, I received a gift certificate and products to thank me for taking the time to participate.””
The temperature is a little cooler, thank goodness! But summer is not quite over yet and refreshing and cool treats are still very much welcome. My girls and I love cool treats and yogurt is one of them. We actually have a few yogurt related recipes coming up so stay tuned.
This time around though, I just want to share with you. OK, you can call it bragging too. I was excited when I got this package in the mail. Check it out!
Thanks to My Blog Spark, I received this gift pack along with free coupons for Yoplait Whips!. Yoplait happens to be one of our favorite snack around here so we were happy to get the free coupons! Well happy to receive the gift pack too, who wouldn’t? Look at it!
Now if you love creamy desserts like I do, you will love these Yoplait Whips!. When you’re eating these whips you’d think you were eating something totally decadent instead of something that is deliciously good for you. Even the flavors sound decadent with names like: Chocolate, Chocolate Raspberry, Dulce de Leche, Key Lime Pie, Lemon Meringue, Orange Crème, Peaches ‘N Cream, Raspberry Mousse, and Strawberry Mist.
After reading a few websites and blogs, I learned that some people freeze their yogurts. Who knew! My girls just dig into to them as is, cold from the refrigerator! But now that we learned they are also great frozen, we’re definitely going to try them out that way next time.
