I like snacking between meals. And feels like I do it more regularly during the wintertime. When the energy level dips, I automatically reach out for that snack. For some time now, I have been trying to make winter snacking healthy, some works, others don't.
But this delicious fruit yogurt has been our snack for the last few weeks. We've thought of making this flavored yogurt for a while now, and actually tried it for the new year menu. We have varied the fruits in the yogurt every time and are yet to complain about the taste.
It's not overly sweet, but each bite is flavorful with the fruits, honey, orange zest and vanilla flavor.
1 can yogurt - I use plain, fat free organic yogurt
1 green apple
1/2 cup grapes
1/2 cup blueberries
1/2 cup strawberries
1/4 cup raisins and dried cranberries
1/2 cup chopped nuts - I use a mix of almonds, walnuts and pecan.
3 tbspoons honey
1 tspoon vanilla essence
1 tspoon orange zest
2 tbspoon roasted oats
This is the easy part. Clean and chop all the fruits. Mix honey, vanilla essence and orange zest in the yogurt till it mixes well. Then add all the fruits, nuts and dried fruits. Reserve some nuts, strawberries, and oats for topping.
You can then divide the portions for the week and top it with nuts, oats and fresh fruits.
