Yoplait Yogurt...

Did you know that March is National Nutrition Month?

One of my all time favorite snacks is yogurt.  Specifically Yoplait Light Boston Creme Pie yogurt.

It is delightful, and a healthy snack option.

My kids share my same love of yogurt.  We have an entire drawer in the refrigerator dedicated to yogurt. 

We eat at least 2 yogurt snacks a day around here, so I thought I would share with y'all my 2 favorite recipes I use to make a delighful snack.

Fruit and Yogurt Parfait
1 single serve vanilla yoplait
1 serving granola cereal
fresh sliced strawberries

Serve in bowl...AWESOME!

1 cup or so vanilla or strawberry yoplait (for this I buy the large carton and dispense single servings)
handful frozen mixed berries
6-8oz orange juice

Mix in blender to desired consistency.  Pour in cup and serve with fun straw.  My kids come running when they hear the blender!
