Ingredients
 
 

  • 1/2 cup whole plain yogurt
  • 2 tablespoons milk (dairy or nondairy)
  • 2 tablespoons rolled oats, ground in a blender or food processor (or quick or instant oats)
  • 1-2 teaspoons hemp seeds, chia seeds, and/or shredded unsweetened coconut
  • 1/4 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1/8 teaspoon cinnamon (optional)
  • 1-2 teaspoons maple syrup or honey (optional)
  • 1/4-1/2 cup fresh or frozen blueberries, or raspberries, blackberries strawberries, mashed banana, or mango

Instructions
 

  • Combine all ingredients except optional sweetener and berries in a small bowl and stir gently.
  • Taste and adjust sweetness if desired.
  • Divide mixture into small storage containers.
  • Top with berries. Store in the fridge at least 4 hours or overnight. (The mixture will thicken as it sits overnight in the fridge.) Serve cold.

Notes

  • This recipe will keep for 3-5 days when stored in airtight containers in the fridge.
  • Use ground raw oats or quick oats for a smoother final texture that the kids might prefer.
  • Try blueberries, raspberries, strawberries, diced mango, or mashed banana as the fruit.
  • Try chia seeds, hemp seeds, or ground flaxseeds to add fiber, protein and healthy fats. (Chia seeds may thicken the mixture more than hemp seeds.)
  • If you find the texture too thick, you can always stir in an extra tablespoon or two of milk.
  • You can blend the fruit right into the yogurt mixture for a smoother overall texture. This works well with strawberries and mango. Just put everything into a food process or blender and process until smooth.
  • Dairy-free: Use nondairy yogurt and milk.
