Yogurt Fruit Blast November 15, 2010

Yogurt Fruit Blast

Jamie says:  I woke up the other day and thought- wow, I am 24 years old!  How time is flying so quickly all of a sudden.  My first cousin got MARRIED this weekend!  I no longer sit at “the kids table.”  And I have less than a year until I am finished with grad school.  Here is a recipe that I wrote when I first started grad school (over a year ago now) for a program my classmates and I developed called Get Healthy Together

Yogurt Fruit Blast

Ingredients:

  • ½ cup fresh fruit, i.e strawberries, blueberries, raspberries, blackberries, grapes, melon, peaches, pineapple, pears, banana, kiwi, and/or mango
  •  

  • ½ cup fat-free light vanilla yogurt (Publix)
  • ¼ cup low-fat maple brown sugar granola (Cascadian Farm or Bear Naked)
  •  

  1.  Wash, dry, and slice fruit (if applicable).
  2. Pour ½ cup of yogurt in a bowl.  Add fruit to the yogurt.  Sprinkle granola on top.  Serves: 1.  Enjoy!

Sweet and delicious!  The creamy vanilla yogurt, juicy fruit, and crunchy granola go oh so nicely together.

  • Nutrition note:  Each serving contains about 170 calories, 7 g protein, and 2 grams of fat, and provides about 18% of the daily value for calcium.  
  • Fun fact:  Dietetics students and registered dietitians (RDs) often use nutrient analysis software to determine how the nutrient content of a meal, snack, or day’s worth of food and drink compares to an individual’s nutrient needs.
