Creamy Yogurt Cups a Perfect After School Snack

Two times of the day that can be a little hairy at our house are breakfast and after school.  The kiddos are hungry and they are looking for whatever isn’t nailed down to eat.  If not careful, they will eat their body weight in junk and empty calories.  One trick I have is to make sure to have healthy, tasty alternatives ready at hand.  One of my secret weapons is a super rich and creamy yogurt with granola and berries ready and handy in the fridge for them to easily grab.

I know this isn’t a new concept at all but what makes it a little different and super economical is the way I make the yogurt extra special.  Instead of buying the more expensive individual cups or even the creamy and a little more decadent Greek yogurt, I buy the cheaper low-fat or fat-free vanilla yogurt that you can purchase in large containers.  This is then where the magic a happens…

 

 

I pour all of the yogurt in to a mesh strainer lined with a paper towel and let that sit in the fridge for a few hours.  This drains some of the excess liquid from the yogurt and makes it extra decadent and creamy.  My kids LOVE it!  I top it with berries, granola and then drizzle a little Agave nectar over it and they couldn’t be happier.

 

 

 

 

 

So here is what you will need…

  • Large container of your favorite yogurt
  • Fresh or frozen berries
  • Granola
  • Agave nectar or honey
  • Small containers in which to store individual portions of the tasty treat {optional}
