Comments

We make this recipe in classes with kids of all ages and it is always a hit!  It is easily adaptable to different fruits and different yogurt flavors.

I have made this recipe in class and for a food bank.  It is easy and tasty!  It's also easy for kids to make with little supervision.  I usually use vanilla yogurt because lemon is sometimes hard to find.  

Sherman Extension has made this recipe as part of a teen afterschool cooking class at Sherman County School.  It is easy to make, can be adapted to whatever families may have on hand, and is well received by the teens.
