Yogurt and fruit. What a lovely combination if I do say so myself. I have never been much of a yogurt fan until I started hearing about the major health benefits it has on our immune systems. Did you know that yogurt is very good at preventing bacteria infections? Did you also know that it is also a great way to regulate your digestive track thanks to a little thing called “probiotics?” These healthy helpers are the ‘good bacteria’ our systems need to help stave off all those nasty infections that us women may be prone to having.
My children love yogurt. If I let them, they would probably eat it for breakfast, lunch, and dinner. I do allow at least two or three yogurts a week during their snack time. They are filled with healthy nutrients, which is what I love. The kids love them because of their fruity and sweet flavors.
In this family, we are always looking for ways to amp up the ingredients that we use on a daily basis. Enter this lovely little recipe. I am so glad I came across it many years ago. Everyone in this family LOVES this treat because it reminds them of a colorful strawberry ice cream sundae.
The layers of this sweet snack are pretty simple to explain. The bottom layer is made with a yummy concoction of sliced strawberries dipped in apricot preserves. The middle and top layers consist of a fruity flavored peach yogurt which is topped with crushed pieces of pecan granola. It literally does not become sweeter then this!
If you love yogurt and fruit, make these this instant. Your kids AND your body will thank you for it!
