Fun fact about me: I often eat cereal right out of the box. I like eating dry cereal (although I enjoy it with milk as well), and have been made fun of on occasion for it. Cereal is basically a less salty version of chips, and one that I can eat early on in the day without feeling queasy. I also am an avid cereal eater for breakfast. While most of my colleagues just sip coffee, I try to get in a full breakfast prior to coming into work so I’m not starving all day.
While shopping at Walmart, I picked up some Quaker® products for my daily breakfast. There were so many options, that it made sense to pick up a few extra products for snacking purposes. Their varieties include Quaker® Real Medleys®, Quaker® Oatmeal Squares, Quaker® Simply Granola and Quaker® Life.
I came up with a few recipes for snacks to share with you. One is my take on frozen yogurt (it’s a real stretch- but work with me here, people), and another is a simple trail mix that’s great for a work or on-the-go snack.
DIY Frozen Yogurt Recipe
- 1 small serving-size container of Greek yogurt
- A few clusters of Quaker® Simply Granola– Oats, Honey & Almonds
- 10-15 dried cranberries, a.k.a craisins
- A drizzle of honey
Remove the lid from your container of Greek yogurt and place in the freezer for 1-2 hours. This will somewhat mimic the consistency and temperature of frozen yogurt. Then just sprinkle on the toppings of your choice (my suggestions are included above). Enjoy!
Trail Mix Recipe
- 3 cups of Quaker® Life Cinnamon Cereal
- 1 cup of Craisins
- 1 cup of slivered almonds
- 1 cup of sunflower seeds
Mix all ingredients together and keep in an airtight container or Ziploc bag.
