Smart Shopping Tips
- Save money on produce by buying in season when you can. Look for “Manager’s Specials” on fresh produce and other items that need to be used quickly. Frozen is often a great buy, too.
- Instead of the single-serving cups of yogurt, try buying a large tub for savings per serving. Plain, unflavored yogurt can be used for sauces and marinades, or add your own fruit and a touch of honey or maple syrup for a sweet alternative to sugary snacks.
- Use any of your favorite fruit in this recipe. Try melons, apples and more!
- For a heartier option, add 1 or 2 tablespoons of chopped nuts or a 1/4 cup of granola.
