Even though it’s back-to-school for many of us, the temperatures are still quite high after school.After a little outside play, they are hungry and want “something” so that is when I head to the freezer and pull out this easy snack that is full of protein and fruit and with that crunchy texture they love.

To bring you today’s recipe, I’ve partnered with Bitsy’s Brainfood to highlight their organic cereal. This is one snack kids love to eat and make; and once you see how it’s made in the video below, you’ll soon be heading over to your pantry and fridge to make this!

I have two kids that are “dry cereal” eaters, meaning, they don’t like milk in their cereal, but they do enjoy eating it. Often, they’ll request some cereal sprinkled on top of their fruit and yogurt, and this is a great way of eating protein, vitamins and minerals, and choline from Bitsy’s cereal. Basically, all the nutrition you’d want from a tasty snack while celebrating fruits and vegetables.

What I love about using Bitsy’s Brainfood cereal is that it is as colorful as it is good for you since it is made with organic vegetables and fortified with vitamins and minerals, so my kids are getting a little extra nutrition with every bite.

While this snack comes together quickly, you do have to wait a little while for it to freeze. Which is why this is something you can easily do the night before or right after breakfast and it will be ready for snack time!

Frozen Yogurt Bark with Cereal and Fruit: the perfect cool snack on a hot day and after school! Quick and easy to make, and it's great to keep in the freezer.
  • Author: Laura Fuentes
  • Yield: 9 servings

Ingredients

  • 16oz container Greek vanilla yogurt
  • ½ cup (total) blueberries and diced strawberries
  • 2 cups Bitsy’s Brainfood Cereal

Instructions

  1. Line a 9×9 pan with parchment paper.
  2. Pour yogurt onto pan, spreading it throughout so it is generally the same thickness throughout.
  3. Sprinkle blueberries and cereal over the yogurt and freeze for 4-6 hours.
  4. When ready to eat, lift the parchment paper away from the pan onto a flat surface and break into pieces. Serve immediately.
  5. Kitchen tips: place leftovers back onto parchment paper and freeze immediately. Once frozen, you can transfer the frozen pieces to a zip bag and store for up to a week. After that, the yogurt tends to get freezer burns.
  6. I’ve found the easiest way to cut the frozen yogurt is with a sharp knife, with the frozen bark over a cutting board.

 

From time to time, I work with awesome companies to develop recipes for this website. Today’s post was brought to you by Bitsy’s Brainfood. All opinions are 100% my own. Thank you for supporting the brands that encourage my creativity.

Yummy! I’ve done something similar with granola yougurt and fruit and put it in our popsicle molds. They had popsicles for breakfast! That day I was the coolest mom in town. 🙂

I didn’t have any parchment paper after baking cookies this weekend so i put yogurt in a popsicle mold, topped with berries and fruit and stuck a stick inside. The kids loved it.

My favorite is berry blast, I toss it in my salad for a bit of a crunch.

Heather Eavers - September 2, 2016 Reply

We haven’t tried Bitsy cereal yet. But we love the cookies!

Becca Z - September 2, 2016 Reply

We are loving Fruity Number Crunch and Berry Blast, although we haven’t experimented with them in recipes. I imagine you could pulse them in a food processor a bit to make crumbs for a cheese cake crust, or for a crumble topping, or you could use them with Dandies vegan marshmallows to make marshamallow treat bars, or make a bark or brittle.

Angie Wolfe - September 2, 2016 Reply

We love Fruit Number Crunch as a dry cereal as a snack with pretzels and other dried fruit.

We haven’t tried this brand before but the Banana Squash Squares sound amazing, they would be great mixed with some peanut butter and spread between apple slices.

The Fruity Numbers Crunch is tasty! I like to make a trail mix with raisins, nuts, seeds, etc.

Stacy L - September 5, 2016 Reply

We love the Berry Blast and Fruity Number Crunch! My daughter just eats the cereal in a bowl with organic milk. It is awesome to have a healthier cereal to offer her on these crazy back to school mornings!

Michael S. - September 5, 2016 Reply

On the way to get our first box. My kids would love this snack.

We like to eat fruity number crunch with cut up bananas.

Grace - September 5, 2016 Reply

What a GREAT idea! We hardly ever do cereal in the mornings so the kids are always asking if they can have a bowl for snack…I love combining it with the yogurt for a sweet and crunch after school snack! Can’t wait to try out this cereal and make a batch 🙂

We’ve never tried Bitsy’s before. I’ll have to check it out. This yogurt bark looks great! It will be a perfect treat the next two days when my son gets out of school at noon due to excessive heat and his building (the only one in the district) not having AC.
