Notes

Smart Shopping Tips
  • Buying yogurt in large tubs is much cheaper than individual serving snack containers.
  • Make your own yogurt snacks by buying a large tub of plain or vanilla yogurt and portioning it out into reusable plastic containers at home. Add fresh fruit or granola for flavor.
  • Flavored yogurt can contain a great deal of sugar. Compare labels for a better choice.
Cooking & Serving Tips:
  • Top with any fruit that you prefer. Other options include pineapple chunks, sliced bananas, kiwi, mango or peaches.
  • Use plain yogurt to cut down on the sugar content. If needed, stir in a little bit of honey, but no more than 1 tablespoon.
  • Make individual portions by coating the bottoms of small bowls with the graham cracker crust and topping with yogurt and fruit.
