Fix Me A Snack

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

This post is a part of a series of 101 ways to eat 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.

61. Banana Toffee Yogurt

Fresh from the it-might-be-better-than-a-cookie department…

1/2 ripe banana, mashed well
1/3 cup plain yogurt
1 tablespoon chopped chocolate-covered toffee bar, for garnish

Mix together the yogurt and banana. Top with toffee bar pieces. Serve.


62. Fruit Explosion Yogurt

Inspired by Mangoes, Strawberries, and Lime from Family Style Food. I tried it with champagne mango and the yogurt overpowered its delicate flavor, so just go with regular mango.

1/2 cup plain yogurt
1 teaspoon fresh lime juice
1 teaspoon sugar
1/3 cup cubed fresh mango
1/3 cup chopped fresh strawberry

Mix together the yogurt, lime juice, and sugar. Top with fruit. Serve.


63. Dirt Pie Yogurt

And from the there’s-no-gettin’-around-it-it’s-a-cookie department…

This idea came from Dina of It’s Not About Nutrition.

1/3 cup plain yogurt
1 chocolate sandwich cookie, chopped fine

Place cookie bits on top of yogurt in a small bowl. Serve.


64. Overnight Apricot Yogurt

While preping this yogurt the night before is often beyond me, the sweet creamy goodness that appears the next morning is worth it. This yogurt is fabulous with add-ins like nuts and granola but is also entirely capable of standing on its own.

1/2 cup plain yogurt
4 dried unsulfured apricots, chopped fine
Dash cinnamon

Mix yogurt with apricots in an airtight container and store overnight in the refrigerator. In the morning, transfer to a bowl and stir in cinnamon. Serve.


  1. My son was looking over my shoulder when I was reading your blog and he made me scroll through pages of it so he could pick out all of the snacks he wants to try :)
