Great Snack is Easy to Make


A good friend of mine got me hooked on this easy and good for you treat a few years ago. It is especially great during the hot months of summer; however I eat a bowl in place of high fat ice cream (which my husband enjoys each evening).

This snack is power-packed with antioxidants, omega-3 fatty acids, calcium, protein, fiber as well as the healthy benefits that yogurt provides to your system.

I purchase bags of frozen Blueberries and Strawberries from Costco as well as freeze my fruit in Ziplock Freezer bags; really any fruit will do. It is very tasty with bananas and berries too. 

Don't forget that any yogurt will do, any granola, any fruit HOWEVER check your sugar and fat contents! Most yogurt that has fruit in it has a ton of sugar or high fructose corn syrup...and granolas do to!

One of the best things about cooking is the fun you have experimenting ~ so have some fun and please let us know what you come up with.
