Fruit and Yogurt Dip is a great healthy snack for hungry kids after school or on a play break. It’s light enough not to to be digested relatively quickly, so it should not interfere with dinner.
Serve the yogurt with persimmons and apples in the fall, or alternating slices of red and green apples to lend color, banana and pear slices, or strawberries. Beware that the strawberries are organic or pesticide free—it’s the crop that is typically doused with dangerous pesticides.
Stick to the sweet fruits. Acid fruits like oranges will not be as easily digested with the yogurt.
The vanilla yogurt, granola, and fresh apple slices have enough sweetness to lure them into this healthy snack!
You will need:
Sliced apples, organic if possible. Your choice of apple.
Optional: banana pieces, persimmon chunks, strawberries or other sweet fruit
1 Cup Vanilla Yogurt
1/4 Cup Granola
Put the yogurt in a small dish and sprinkle the granola on top. Arrange the fruit pieces around the yogurt dish in an attractive presentation and serve!
If this dish is for later, dip the apple slices briefly into a mixture of water and 1/2 tsp. ascorbic acid (Vitamin C) to prevent them from tarnishing. You can buy it in powdered form at many health food stores. It’s lighter than lemon juice in its acidity, but lemon can be used as well.
