This week has been full of ice cream but I’m sending you off on a long weekend with a real bang – I made something frozen and delicious and dare I say it…. healthy! This frozen yogurt is full of great things like nonfat greek yogurt and blueberries, but even better than that it is full of flavor. In an effort to kick off summer eating dessert while having clothes that fit I’ll be filling up on lots of this yogurt over the next few weeks. While blueberry and chocolate are one of my favorite combinations, I see many more flavors happening very soon.
So many of you have left me extremely supportive comments, facebook messages, tweets and Instagram notes over the last few weeks and it is just so overwhelming. I know a lot of you are curious as to what is going on behind the scenes with my business. I’m thinking about posting a “day in the life” if that interests you.
As for how things are going… I am pleased to say that I couldn’t be happier. The site launched just over two months ago and already I’ve processed over 100 online orders, catered several events, provided favors and gift fillers to a few different people and delivered desserts to a TV show’s cast and crew. In the few moments that I’m not baking, I’m networking and and strategizing ways to grow the business. When I’m not doing either of those things, I’m brainstorming new recipes for the blog, Seasonal Desserts and Cookie of the Month Club.
The best part of everything has been the feedback that Keep It Sweet Desserts has received thus far. It seems a bit silly that I am still nervous every time I send a package or deliver an order, because people are really loving my sweets. While there has been a little bit of PR, most of the business so far is word of mouth. Many customers are those who have received a box of cookies as a gift and are now passing on the sweets to someone else. I could not ask for much more satisfaction than that.
Thank you again for being there for me through all of this!

The color of this is just gorgeous, Lauren. I must get an ice cream maker ASAP!
I JUST got one- my parents gave me their old school ice cream maker from I don’t know… 20 years ago? At least it works:-)
Wow. Not only is that just absolutely gorgeous, it sounds soooo, so good!
So incredibly happy for you girl ;)
The color is beautiful! I am so happy for you. And yes, I’ll be interested in a “day in the life” post!
Although I love traditional, decadent baked goods every now and again, this type of dessert is right up my alley for a sweet bite after dinner. And I’m so happy to hear things are going well. I need to place an order for some more of those blondies soon! Joe just died over them.
Thanks, Madison! I love that he was such a blondie fan:-)
I am so happy to hear things are going well. I would love to read a “day in the life” post.
Oh my goodness, this looks amazing!!!!
Would love a day in the lift post! And a bowl of this yogurt! I love when healthy foods look like something I can’t live without :)
What a cute ice cream bowl!!
That is amazing how many orders you’ve had! Congratulations!
I think it would be great to read a “day in the life” post. And I definitely want to make this frozen yogurt!
Lauren, congrats on your success. So thrilled to hear that your new business is off to such a strong start. This recipe is gorgeous and exactly the kind of reduced-guilt dessert I love. :-)
The colour in that is simply incredible! Blueberry + chocolate = total heaven (and good for you, aren’t both full of lovely antioxidants?!)
great color! sounds delish.
What a brilliant shape of purple! (Love the shaved chocolate on top too!)
wow could that be any more beautiful? i’m so happy about all the success of your business. hopefully i’ll be able to swing by and watch you in action when we’re on the east coast this july.
This frozen yogurt sounds fantastic. The deep purple color is gorgeous. Thanks for sharing.
This looks sooooooo good. I love the color, it’s so pretty. :)
This looks so healthy and refreshing! I must try it. Thanks for sharing.
I’m a blueberry, a chocolate and a yoghurt lover but I’ve never combined the three before. Interesting. It looks beautiful!
What an amazing color! Love this combination…just scrumptious!
Look at us with our frozen desserts this week! Except…yours is way healthier. How’s THAT for irony! :P
I love you. And I still need to review your desserts. Although…I already know they get an A++++++.
