65. Banana Coconut Pie Yogurt

My kids were sneaking their fingers into this yogurt concoction so often, it never really made it to the table. We’ve been unintentionally ignoring coconut for a while so it’s delightful smell and flavor was a real treat.

1/2 ripe banana, mashed well
1/2 teaspoon coconut extract
1/3 cup plain yogurt
1 tablespoon sweetened shredded coconut, toasted

Mix together the banana, coconut extract, and yogurt. Top with shredded coconut. Serve.


66. Caramel Apple Yogurt

1/3 cup plain yogurt
1/4 teaspoon vanilla extract
1/4 cup applesauce
1 teaspoon dulce de leche or caramel sauce
Dash cinnamon

Mix yogurt and vanilla together in a small bowl. Top with applesauce, dulce de leche, and cinnamon. Serve.


67. Bananarama Yogurt

1/2 ripe banana, mashed well
1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 teaspoon maple syrup
1/3 cup plain yogurt
1 – 2 tablespoons chopped unsalted walnut pieces, toasted
1 – 2 teaspoons sweetened shredded coconut, toasted

Mix together the mashed banana, vanilla, maple syrup, and yogurt. Top with walnuts and coconut. Serve.


68. Little Bear Yogurt

Whenever my kids watch Little Bear I develop an inferiority complex. His mom is so patient, loving, and just….perfect. When she’s not making pancakes or giving Little Bear hugs, I bet she’s feeding him stuff like this.

1/3 cup plain yogurt
1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
1/4 – 1/3 cup of chopped berries
1 – 2 tablespoons chopped walnut pieces, toasted
1 teaspoon honey

Mix together the yogurt and vanilla. Top with nut, berries, and a little swirl of honey. Serve.

    1. The pig is from A Dong asian market in Hartford, CT. The kitty came from Sur La Table. They’re both dip bowls – small but just right for kid snacks.

  1. These are so cute… I think I need to go to Hartford to get some cute bowls.. these would be great for oatmeal ideas also (sorry my kiddos love oatmeal)
