LITTLE BITES: SUGAR CONE PARFAITS

little-bites-sugar-cone-parfaits-106

Don’t you love when old things feels new again? Goodness, I do. It’s one of my favorite things about fall. Not sure if it’s the crisp air or change in routine that does it, but lately watching football, visiting a favorite coffee shop, wearing cozy layers, walking to the bus stop with the kids, and even a rainy day like we had this past Saturday, feels fresh and new again.

And that is exactly what inspired these yummy updated yogurt parfaits. A common snack made new again!

ICE CREAM CONE YOGURT PARFAITS

  • Eat up!

There are so many new things to look forward to this fall, but I would love to know what old routines (outfits, meals, outings, etc.) feel new again lately?

Hope your week is off to a good start!

LITTLE BITES: FROZEN YOGURT DOTS

It’s safe to say the kids are getting tired of the snacks that have been gracing our pantry and fridge this summer. All we seem to do lately is snack so I guess I can’t blame ’em! But I was shocked when they hadn’t gobbled up all the noosa yogurt I’ve been buying at Costco. It could honestly pass for fro-yo! When questioned, they admitted it was just that they had been eating so much of it. So earlier this week we decided to try freezing some into dots, hoping it would rekindle their enthusiasm for the delicious yogurt.

To my delight, they loved the dots and ate them all up. As did I, and will now be eating all yogurt in frozen form — so good! The “recipe” and steps are so simple and easy for little helpers too. Details below.

YOU’LL NEED:

  • favorite kind of yogurt, refrigerated and stirred
  • small zip locks or pastry bags
  • parchment paper
  • cookie sheet

HERE’S HOW:

  1. Line cookie sheet with parchment paper.
  2. Fill ziplock with stirred yogurt and cut a small hole in one of the bottom corners.
  3. Squeeze small dots onto prepared cookie sheet and place in the freezer for a couple hours, until frozen… Freeze longer or overnight if wanting to store and keep for later.
  4. Peel off of paper and eat, scoop into a bowl and serve or place in airtight container and store in the freezer!
