My son was off school during the winter break so I needed something for snack time that could also include an activity: helping mom. We created a new recipe for a special snack that is also a healthy option. Here’s the recipe, although it’s so easy, it’s really just assembly.
Take half of a graham cracker and crumble it like you would to make a pie crust. You can leave them in big chunks or grind them to a fine consistency.
Add 2 ounces (about 1/2 of an individual serving cup) of yogurt to the dish. Spread to cover the graham crackers.
Add sliced banana to the top of the yogurt. Variations are endless: apples, peaches, mandarin oranges.
Sprinkle on some blueberries — fresh or dried. Variations could include cranberries or dried cherries.
Top with a few mini marshmallows.
Time to dig in. Looks just like a sundae and your kids will love eating this because they helped make it.
