Feeding our twins has been a full-time job since the day they were born. From nursing to bite size food to just the pure quantity necessary, I often feel as soon as I have their meal prepared and walk away, it’s gone and they are ready for more or throwing it on the floor.
As a result, I am always on the hunt for healthy and simple snacks that won’t end up on the ground. This being especially important when we are on the go. I am helping to coach Tom’s soccer team so anything that will keep the twins occupied during that time is crucial. Goldfish, fruit juice gummies, string cheese, tangerines are my standard snacks. But needing to change it up to keep the kids interested I found this recipe via Babble. Yogurt and raspberries, genius.
Mixing it up a bit, knowing what my kids will eat, I added a little bit of honey and lightly combined the berries with the yogurt rather than mashing them up.
RASPBERRY DROPS WITH GREEK YOGURT AND HONEY
two & a half cups organic greek yogurt
two cups raspberries, rinsed
2 tablespoons honey (ours is purple sage from a local farm in Julian, CA)
Combine honey and yogurt in a bowl
drop a few berries into the bowl and softly mix with yogurt and honey.
Working in batches coat the raspberries and drop them on to a cookie sheet or plate covered with parchment paper. Pop them in the freezer for a few hours. Once they are frozen you can transfer them to a freezer safe container. I put them in out snapware so I can grab a container and go.
grandmas pan, look at that metal beauty. I think it might be older than me.
The yogurt melts in your mouth and the berries give a great last bite. Great with blueberries, strawberries, watermelon and blackberries.
