Kid-Friendly Frozen Yogurt, Granola, and Fruit Bars

May 30, 2018 in Food, Recipe, Recipes - No Comments

Snacking in the Summer is simple for me— I want something cold and something filled with fruit. I’ve always been a fruit lover, but most of my favorites aren’t good until Summertime. So, while we eat fruit year round, we go seriously overboard during the Summer. Y’all know that I love recipes that are quick, easy, and kid-friendly–this one is all of those things! These Frozen Yogurt, Granola, and Fruit Bars is exactly what you and your family will want to snack on all Summer long, and playing around with toppings and mix-ins is super fun! Let everyone pick their favorite ingredients for their bars!

Recipes that don’t require a lot of cutting, heat, etc. are my favorite because Grayson loves being in the kitchen with me. It’s so hard for me to keep him out of the kitchen, but I totally love that he’s so into helping. Typically, we’re in the kitchen making something together at least twice a day. Getting your kids to participate in the kitchen can be beneficial in tons of ways (especially if you have a picky eater). There’s a post coming about that soon.

_MG_5119For our first batch, I made sure to include all of Grayson’s favorite fruits. He is really into strawberries and blueberries right now, and I decided to add some granola (with a touch of honey) for that added crunch, since the bars are so creamy. He loved being able to stir the yogurt, place the fruit, and sprinkle the granola himself. Recipes like these are the easiest to include your younger kids.

Ingredients

  • 3 C Greek Yogurt (We used Vanilla)
  • 4 TBSP Honey
  • 1 1/2 TSP Vanilla
  • 1/2 lb Strawberries, washed and sliced
  • 1/2 lb Blueberries, washed
  • Granola for garnish

DIRECTIONS

  1. In a medium-large bowl, mix together yogurt, honey, and vanilla
  2. Using a rubber spatula or spoon, spread the mixture evenly onto a baking sheet lined with parchment paper. (The parchment paper makes it super easy to remove and cut the bars when they’re done).
  3. Top with all of your favorite goodies
  4. Freeze overnight, and either cut or just break into pieces.

(These bars can be made up to two months in advance and frozen).

Alternative Topping Ideas

  • Peanuts & Chocolate Chips
  • Sliced Almonds, Pumpkin Seeds
  • Crumbled Oreos with Chocolate Drizzle
  • Pistachios and Powerberries (Trader Joe’s)
  • M&Ms
  • Kiwi, Pineapple, Mango, and Coconut (This one SCREAMS Summer!)
  • Nectarines
  • Your favorite Breakfast Cereal
  • Sprinkles!

  • AD When Grayson was diagnosed with #hearingloss, one of my main concerns was being able to afford everything that he needed to maximize his quality of life. Hearing Evaluations, Speech Therapies, and any Devices that he needs aren't covered by insurance. If you know someone with a disability, have one yourself, or have a child with one, you know that it can become expensive FAST, and extremely overwhelming. When I heard about ABLEnow®, I was really 
excited to partner with them. ABLEnow accounts help eligible individuals (even children!) pay for expenses related to their disabilities. This includes everything from health and wellness, to housing, to education and so much more! Being able to help save for my son's financial future gives me such peace of mind. You can click the link in my bio to find out if you or someone you know is eligible to sign up for an ABLEnow account, and head to http://bit.ly/2ZrAozy for a chance to win a $500 contribution to an ABLEnow account! @ABLEnowVA #ABLEnow •

  • OH HEY. Remember me? 😂
I can’t even begin to describe the last two ish weeks that we’ve had over here. 
First of all, remember when I thought Grayson had pink eye? It turned out to just be a virus, that he also passed along to Sawyer, and they’re both still not over it. It’s gross, but I think we’re at the tail end of it. *Hopefully* 
Also, I got a new job. It’s part time and from home and I think it is going to be great for us. Does that mean you’ll see less of me? Nah. Probably the same or more since it’s I’ll be sitting at my desk way more often day to day. 
I also got hit with some severe dental pain on Friday, which was FUN to have to deal with over a holiday weekend, let me tell you. Thankfully, I’m finally on the mend and pain free 🙌🏻
I can’t wait to settle back into this space. 
Tell me something good that’s happened to you this week! I want to hear all of the things. •

Philly Cheesesteak Sloppy Joe Stuffed Sweet Potatoes. Say that three times fast. I will be throwing this really quick recipe up on the blog later tonight. I made it last week and y’all were really excited to try it. Having two small children, I always try to make meals fun, versatile, and full of flavor so that they will enjoy it. I also love making recipes that are able to be tweaked to make it comfortable for your family. You CAN make your family healthy and delicious meals at home and it doesn’t have to take hours or require a ton of effort! 
SWIPE—>> to see an example of how I serve this meal to each of my kids. And keep your eyes peeled for this to hit the blog. •

  • I’m so excited to share this Better Than Takeout Beef Fried Rice with you guys. (You can totally sub the beef for chicken, pork, or shrimp!) We add a little extra veggies and an extra egg because Grayson like a lot of egg in his “egg rice” 😂 I also included a Homemade Yum Yum Sauce recipe because...do I even need a reason? You can find this recipe by clicking the link in my bio! •
