Did I say back-to-school? Seriously?Granola Fruit Yogurt-Alternative Cup
Where did the summer go? It’s really hard to believe that it’s already time for school and packed lunches. Like other parents, I too have mixed emotions about this time of the year. One part of me is sad, as I will miss my kids tremendously and the other part is happy to get back into September routine and have more time on hand.
September routine means time to start planning for morning breakfast and packed lunches. Planning kid’s meal could be a daunting task for parents. But I am excited to share that I found an amazing dairy-free alternative at Walmart which has made my morning breakfast a breeze.
Want to know about this product? Granola Fruit Yogurt-Alternative Cup
It’s Silk® Peach & Mango Dairy-Free Yogurt Alternative and Silk® Strawberry Dairy-Free Yogurt Alternative.
New Silk® Peach & Mango Dairy-Free Yogurt Alternative can be easily incorporated into back-to-school recipes. What I love about this product is that it has –
- No artificial colors
- Is vegan and gluten-free
- Has no high-fructose corn syrup and no saturated fat
- Has 6 grams of plant-powered protein and
- Is an excellent source of Calcium and Vitamin D.
Now, who can say no to that? A smooth and creamy non-dairy fruity treat made with the goodness of soy. Mmmmmm! Dairy-free never tasted so good!®
How is this a back-to-school recipe?
Back-to-school breakfast time is crazzzzy. No matter how great a planner or an organized mom you are, there is something that will come up at the last minute and will throw your entire planning off-balance. This is where my Granola Fruit Yogurt-Alternative Cup recipe comes to rescue.
It’s a perfect make-ahead recipe. I prepare these gluten-free and vegan bowls 2-3 days in advance. On a back-to-school morning, my kids pick their favorite Silk® Dairy-Free Yogurt Alternative and fill their cups up. Top with their favorite fruits and devour their cups down.
This way they get a power-packed wholesome breakfast loaded with Calcium and Vitamin D.
Now onto the recipe!
These power-packed yogurt-alternative cups are prepared with old-fashioned rolled oats, dried apricots, nuts and coconut oil. Feel free to experiment and add other dried fruits like –
- Dried figs
- Dried mangoes
- Dried strawberries
- Dried Mangoes. The possibilities are endless!!
For picky eaters, I chose to crush my ingredients until coarsely powdered but if you prefer them whole, then crush the nuts, dried fruit, and combine with rest of the ingredients.
Press the mix into a muffin tray and bake for 15-17 minutes. Remove from oven and allow it to cool. Carefully remove each cup from the mold. If not using it right away, layer a wax paper in between each cup and store in an airtight container. Good for a week.
When ready to eat, fill these yummy cups with the desired filling and enjoy!!
