Fix Me A Snack

A blog created by a mom who got sick of feeding her kids crackers and ice cream

The only problem I’m having with yogurt these days is that I’m not sure whether to give it to my kids for breakfast, lunch, dinner or all of the above. Apparently the live cultures found in yogurt are all the rage for fighting off the flu. But I also just read an article┬áthat encouraged yogurt consumption close to bedtime because it is relatively high in the amino acid L-tryptophan.

More importantly, don’t you just love the kitty bowl? Sur La Table.DSC02704

1 cup plain greek-style yogurt
1/4 cup maple syrup
1/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1/4 teaspoon vanilla extract
1/2 cup chopped apple (plus more for garnish)

In a small mixing bowl stir together yogurt, maple syrup, cinnamon, and vanilla. Add chopped apple and stir again. Serve garnished with extra chopped apples.

Yield: 2-3 servings
Prep time: 5 minutes

  1. Oh – your blog is making me hungry just looking :)

    Thanks for visiting my post about Graze earlier (and sorry again for not mentioning the UK only thing!)

    We go through huge amounts of fruit and yoghurt in our house – sometimes with some musley thrown in too.

    I’m definitely trying this so I can save on my Chobani Apple Cinnamon habit – it’s about 1 cup a day right now…

    though, technically, to be apple “pie” shouldn’t you add some granola or graham cracker crumbs as the “crust”?
