I don’t know about you, but I certainly experience a midday slump from time to time. That feeling where it’s 2-4 pm, and you’re not yet hungry enough for another meal, but you’re also kind of peckish. The kind of peckish that needs to be fulfilled before moving on with your day. If you’re like me, I’ve got just the treat to help you out today. Introducing these 3-ingredient Frozen Yogurt Granola Cups. Need a midday healthy snack to get you through that midday slump? Check. Need a kid-approved and still nourishing after school treat? Check. Having a sweet tooth craving? Check check check.
When I was younger, frozen yogurt was my jam. Translate that into now, I’m using that prior love of frozen yogurt to make these divine granola cups. They’re made up of some vegan yogurt, granola and fruit on top. Yes, it’s really that easy! For these easy yogurt cups, I used Nature Valley’s Granola Crunch Cinnamon Crunchy Granola Bag. Their granolas are made with 13g of whole grains, and are free from all artificial flavours, sources and high fructose syrup. So you can know you’re giving yourself some delicious and also nourishing granola.
I got my own at Walmart, in the cereal aisle by the way, so that it’s easy for you to find when you go grab one for yourself. You guys already know that I love shopping at Walmart, since while you’re buying these Nature Valley Granola bags, you can go and pick up some fresh fruits to go with it and the vegan yogurt all in one stop. I love that they have several more flavours to choose from, and tons more ways to use them, so you’ll definitely finish the entire bag.
Some of my favourite ways?
- Eating it right out of the bag (already kid approved)
- Hiking snacks
- Midday slump
- Healthy dessert (YES PLEASE)
- On the go meals
- Even a quick breakfast
Let me tell you – these are yummy. These Nature Valley Granola Bags have the same flavour as Nature Valley’s popular granola bars – crushed up! I mean, why didn’t I think of crumbling one of their granola bars over a bowl of vegan yogurt ever before?! So now you can even just bring the bag itself on the go too, no mess, all convenience.
So back to this glorious recipe. To make these 3-ingredient Frozen Yogurt Granola Cups, you start with a layer of either the Nature Valley Granola Crunch Cinnamon Crunchy Granola Bag as the base. Then a layer of coconut yogurt (or any vegan yogurt), then be topped with fruit and more granola, then freeze! You can yogurt cups that are great for the upcoming summer weather, and bound to please both adults and kids. Again – the best part is that you can grab all these ingredients at your local Walmart – so an easy win-win all around.
You can also great creative and switch it up. Maybe used a flavoured yogurt, or another Nature Valley Granola Bag flavour. Or even switch up the fruits. Berries would go great here, but so would apples. I love that you could make a batch of these and make them all slightly different for some variety!
Eat up and enjoy friends! Let me know how you enjoy these treats!
3-Ingredient Frozen Yogurt Granola Cups
- ½ cup Nature Valley Granola Crunch Cinnamon Crunchy Granola
- 3 containers vegan yogurt, any flavour
- Fruits of your choice, sliced into small pieces (such as blackberries, strawberries or blueberries)
- Line 2 mini muffin tin containers with 24 mini muffin liners.
- Crush the Nature Valley Granola Crunch Cinnamon Crunchy Granola with your hands or in a bag with a rolling pin to crush slightly, not completely.
- Spoon 1 teaspoon into the bottom of each liner.
- Spoon 2 teaspoons vegan yogurt over each teaspoon of granola in each liner to bring to the top of the liners. If you have a little extra, feel free to spoon it over the top.
- Top with your favourite fruits, and a sprinkling more of Nature Valley Granola Crunch Cinnamon Crunchy Granola. Push it in slightly so that when it freezes and expands it stays in.
- Freeze for two hours, or even overnight if desired. Remove from fridge and enjoy!
These stay solid out of the fridge in a hot climate for about 20 minutes, so that should help as a gauge for how long to keep it out! Of course, they still taste absolutely delicious partially melted!
