3 After-School Snacks You’ll Love Berry Much
As the back-to-school season is creeping up, we wanted to give you a hand in preparation for the chaos to come. Between school pick-up and drop-off, sports practices, dance recitals, and play dates—there is no time to pause! But don’t stress. We are here to make sure After-School Snacks are one less thing you need to worry about. Forget those sugar filled, artificial preservatives ridden, nutrition less snacks. We bring to you three different ways yogurt and fruit come together to make some delicious treats.
It’s FruitFULL (of Yogurt)
You can never go wrong with finger foods, especially with younger kiddos. That’s why frozen yogurt filled raspberries are brilliant. They are naturally sweet then filled with creamy yogurt, kinda like twinkies, except way healthier. It’s easy as 1, 2, 3, see for yourself-
- 1/2 cup Maia Yogurt vanilla bean
- 3/4 cup raspberries
- Fill a zip-lock bag with yogurt. (Cut the corner once ready to begin filling.) Freeze up to an hour, you want it to solidify a bit without becoming solid.
- Meanwhile, rinse and dry your raspberries. Once the yogurt has thickened, pipe into the raspberries.
- Top with seeds for “sprinkles,” if desired. (ie. chia seeds, poppy seeds, etc.)
Dip. Chill. Enjoy.
Have you ever noticed that food coated in a creamy layer is always more appealing? Think of chocolate covered strawberries, pretzels, and raisins. Well, this is a less-sweet alternative to your cravings. Frozen yogurt covered strawberries is just as delicious as it sounds. Your kiddos will be begging for this treat!
- Maia Yogurt vanilla bean
- Rinse and dry strawberries. Then dip your strawberries into the yogurt and place on a wax-lined tray (one that will fit in your freezer).
- After about an hour, dip the strawberries a second time for a thicker layer of frozen yogurt.
- Allow strawberries to fully freeze for 2-3 hours.
A Crunch In Every Berry Bite
This next treat is for those wanting to take the previous recipe a step further. If you like a little crunch with every bite, we’ve got just the recipe for you! Yogurt dipped cheerios strawberries are a less-sweet dessert you won’t feel guilty for indulging in.
- Maia Yogurt vanilla bean
- 1 tablespoon honey
- 2 cups Honey Nut Cheerios
- 12 strawberries
Place the Cheerios in a small bowl.
- Dip the strawberries in the yogurt once or twice until they have a nice coating, then roll in the Cheerios.
- Enjoy! (You can also even freeze them.)
With these kid-approved recipes, snack time will be easy peasy lemon squeezy! You might want to make some extra though, because we know you’re going to want to grab some for yourself. And it’s ok! You deserve a moment to savor the deliciousness AND some peace and quiet!
