Happy February! This month we feature low-fat dairy as a Foods of the Month. Low-fat dairy products are tasty at any time of the day, especially during snack time. Are you looking for new, healthy snacks to try with your children afterschool? Check out our OrganWise low-fat dairy snack ideas:
Banana Smoothie – Blend bananas with ice cubes, non-fat vanilla or plain Greek yogurt, and a little skim milk. Serve these tasty beverages immediately for a nutritious and refreshing snack. You may also add different fruits to get a healthy blend of vitamins and minerals.
Yogurt Parfait – Make a fancy yogurt parfait by layering non-fat Greek yogurt with berries and/or granola. Serve in a tall cup for a fun presentation.
English Muffin Pizzas – For a fun and quick snack, make mini pizzas with whole grain English muffins. Use your favorite tomato sauce, and top with low-fat mozzarella cheese, peppers, onions and spinach. Broil for 5 minutes, until the cheese is melted, and enjoy.
Fruit with Cinnamon Yogurt Dip – Adding cinnamon to your non-fat plain Greek yogurt gives it flavor and makes for a great dip. Use fruits like apples, oranges and bananas to dip in this creamy, tasty snack! Here is how we served ours, enjoy!
