Summer is here and my kids are sick of the same old snacks and treats that I have been serving all year. I really can’t blame them, much like my meal plan fell into a rut as the school year wound down so did my snacking ideas. This summer I have been trying to come up with new and creative snacks that my kids love and I can feel good about. Fruit is something we love and yogurt is always a great kid snack so I decided to combine them in a fun and creative way.
Yogurt parfait is a great combination of foods I want my kids to eat more of, fruit, yogurt and oats so why not make a new version that will be kid friendly and quite frankly fun. And that is how these easy fruit and yogurt parfait on a stick were born and yes they are a frozen treat just perfect for a hot summer day.
How to Make Easy Fruit and Yogurt Parfait on a Stick
- Lollipop sticks (find at any craft store in candy making aisle)
- Yoplait Original creamy Strawberry yogurt
First slice your bananas in half and insert a stick in them, then place in the freezer for about an hour to freeze. Once frozen remove from freezer and coat in yogurt. I find dipping the banana in the yogurt and using a spoon to scoop and cover works best. Lay yogurt covered bananas on a wax paper covered tray. Sprinkle with oatmeal and place back in freezer until ready to eat or yogurt is frozen.
As you can see these are super simple to make and your kids will love them, I know mine did. Now when they ask for a frozen treat you can give them one of these wholesome snacks and feel good about what you are serving!
