3 cups (24 ounces) low-fat vanilla yogurt
2 cups low-fat granola (try Skillet Granola)

  1. Wash hands with soap and water.

  4. Place ¼ cup yogurt on top of banana in each cup.

Notes

  • Drizzle with honey and top with chopped nuts. (Honey is not recommended for children under 1 year old.)
  • Try other fruit, such as strawberries, apples or oranges (Use 2 cups fruit for the recipe.)
  • Use different flavors of yogurt, such as lemon or strawberry, or plain yogurt for less sugar.

Comments

This is yummy as breakfast, a snack, or dessert. We made it with banana on the bottom and a thawed cherry on the top. The cherry added a nice pop of color. If you don't have granola, plain cheerios can be used. They're still oats and add a crunch. 

This is so fun to make in classrooms. I have done this with 1st, 2nd and 3rd graders. We have done an assembly line where each student gets to take one scoop of each ingredient. Always Kid Approved.

  Our favorite is a frozen cherry, berry fruit blend. ( Thaw first.)
