This post is a part of a series of 101 ways to flavor plain yogurt. (Keep scrolling down after you click on link to see the entire list.) For more information about yogurt in general, go to my Yogurt page.

26. Apricot Yogurt with Blackberries

1/2 cup plain yogurt
1 tablespoon apricot preserves
Fresh blackberries

In a small bowl, stir together the yogurt and preserves until smooth. Top with a handful of blackberries. Serve.

 

27. Waffles/Pancakes Topped with Fresh Fruit and Yogurt

Admittedly, this is more of a breakfast than a snack. I think I’m going to eat this regularly to help me cut down on my maple syrup intake. It’d also be fun to try it with Strawberry Yogurt.

 

1/4 cup plain yogurt
1-2 teaspoons pure maple syrup
1/8 teaspoon vanilla extract
Dash cinnamon
Waffle or pancakes (or both!)
One half of a small ripe banana, sliced
Small handful fresh blueberries
1-3 fresh strawberries, sliced

In a small bowl, stir together the yogurt, maple syrup, vanilla, and cinnamon. Set aside. Place waffle/pancakes on a plate and top with sliced banana. Spoon yogurt mixture over the bananas and serve immediately.

 

28. Red Grapes with Nut Butter Yogurt Dip

Here’s another unexpected, yet mostly healthy twist on the peanut butter and jelly sandwich. The preschooler was not too fond of the dip. But, like any good human being, she loves food on a stick. So she gobbled up all the grapes and mommy was left with the dip, which I enjoyed. So there.

1 tablespoon nut butter (such as peanut or almond)
1/4 cup plain yogurt
1 teaspoon honey
Grapes

Place nut butter in a small bowl. It will be easier to stir into the yogurt if it is room temperature or warm. So give it a few seconds in the microwave, if necessary. Add yogurt and honey and stir until combined and smooth. Serve with grapes on lollipop sticks for dipping.

 

29. Apple Butter Yogurt with Pear and Chocolate Chips

1/2 cup plain yogurt
1 tablespoon apple butter
Chopped pear, for garnish
Miniature chocolate chips, for garnish

Briefly mix the yogurt and apple butter in a small bowl. Top with pieces of pear and chocolate chips. Serve.
