Earlier this week, I was looking for an afternoon snack to feed my toddler (and myself). I wanted something a little novel to break from our standard routine. I stood in front of the refrigerator and freezer with the doors wide open, cold air blasting, and stared in a daze for several minutes. I reached for some frozen berries, yogurt, and this concoction was born! Healthy and delicious, it only took 5 minutes to prepare!
Is the Yogurt Berry Frosty a breakfast food, a snack, or a healthy dessert?? I can’t decide myself! It could be any of these things! As my toddler and I ate it, he kept saying, “Mmmm, it’s good. Dis is good.” It reminded me of a frozen yogurt or ice cream indulgence. The icy coolness of the frozen berries combined with creamy yogurt made for a decadent, unexpected afternoon delight!
