Being the mom that doesn’t buy those fun, colorful treats from the store can get wearing after a while. I remember walking through the grocery store with my mom, drooling over the chewy fruit snacks and neon cereals – as a child, I never understood why she staunchly refused to buy them for us, and I always left the store disappointed.
Well, now I know. And now I’m that mom.
No artificially pink yogurt…
My poor, poor kids. High on the list of grocery store desirables is the bright pink yogurt in those nifty little kid-sized containers. Now, don’t get me wrong – I’m one to splurge from time to time on a little treat. But unfortunately, those little packages inevitably contain low-fat dairy, an incredible amount of sugar (if you’re lucky), food coloring, and lots of other yucky ingredients.
Of course, my kids do get to come home to some pretty yummy and nourishing snack-ables. We make coconut oil fudge and mango creamsicles. We make our own fruit compote complete with bone-building gelatin. And now we make our own vibrantly colored Raspberry Yogurt, like we had for breakfast this morning.
So now they can get their bright pink yogurt, but unlike those other ones from the store, it actually contains fruit – not to mention full-fat whole milk yogurt with live active cultures and all the health benefits of local raw honey!
And this is a totally mom-friendly recipe…all it takes is three ingredients, a food processor, and a few minutes to make a healthy snack that your kids will love! What could be better?
Bring your kids in while you’re at it, and get them started on making their own, brightly colored fun yogurt – they can complete most of the steps in this simple recipe, with just a little help from you!
Naturally Pink Raspberry Yogurt
I use a smaller amount of honey for breakfast, more for a sweet dessert.
Put the raspberries in a food processor, and process until it is the consistency of cornmeal; add the honey and process until almost smooth. Add the yogurt, pulse until it’s all combined, then serve!
