Greek Yogurt, Fruit & Maple
Last week strawberries were on sale and they were the mega sweet kind! We love strawberries in this house so much so that I just went ahead and purchased four boxes! I thought I was over-doing it, but my daughter devoured two and a half boxes in less than 24 hours. Who can blame her? California strawberries are simply delicious!
The rest of the strawberries I served with yogurt – adding mixed berries, maple syrup & other toppings. This is a combination my kids (and husband) are addicted to… The kids ask for it almost daily and they love, love, love adding the toppings.
The best part of this recipe is that it not only tastes great, but it is fantastic for your body. It is loaded with vitamins, proteins, minerals and all the goodness that you can only get from nature’s candy itself.
