Snack Attack: Healthy Trifle

Looking for a yummy snack? Or an easy breakfast?

Thank you to user Suzanne for sharing with us her snack idea for a healthy trifle recipe (and the beautiful picture of it too).

What could be better than all your “start the day” healthy foods assembled into the yummiest breakfast or snack you’ve ever tasted – and ready to just scoop into a bowl and enjoy before running out the door!

Breakfast/Snack Trifle:

  • 1/2 cup dried unsweetened cranberries
  • 1/2 cup fresh Blueberries
  • 1/2 cup strawberries in bite sized pieces
  • 6-8 (4 oz). packs Dannon Light & Fit Vanilla Cream yogurt
  • 3/4 cup muesli or granola or crumbled protein bar or any other whole grain thing you like to start your day with...
  • 1/3 cup raw sliced almonds
  • 1/4 cup uncooked rolled oats

In a pretty bowl, sprinkle the cranberries on the bottom. Top with 1/3 of your yogurt to cover. Top that with the fresh fruits. Then 1/3 more of the yogurt – then sprinkle on your whole grain of choice, top with remainder of the yogurt and sprinkle the top with the sliced almonds and oats.

Why I like it: The base of this recipe is a calcium rich vanilla cream yogurt that has only 3 grams of carbs and an impressive 5 grams of protein with only 3 grams of fat. Add to that the red fruits, whole grains, nuts and the touch of vitamin C from the strawberries and you’re good to go. While you’re dishing out your morning portion, why not scoop up a bit to pack and go for a midday snack!

I KNOW for a fact that this is one delicious dish......and re-frigerating overnight gives it an "icecream" like consistency...EZ recipe too! Thanks Fit and Suzanne.

I think I'm going to make that this weekend..I like trying new desserts once the school week has ended. Every weekend there is always some kind of healthy dessert in the fridge, my boyfriend always tries it and then tries to hide his look of dislike (example, a fat free cheesecake I once made). But this I think he'll like!!

This sounds delicious! I have made my own version, but I like this one better:)

Sounds yummy. I'd just switch out the suggested yogurt for a plain, lowfat organic one. The other stuff in the trifle would be sweet enough for me, and Light 'n Fit has some unnecessary stuff, like cornstarch.
