Frozen Fruit Crunchies Recipe: Healthy Dessert or Snack
Cfrozen-fruit-crunchiesombine sweet fruit and yogurt with crunchy cereal and nuts, and you can't go wrong with this fun frozen snack. A healthy recipe to freeze for the kids--or anybody!
  • 1 med. banana, peeled and cut into 12 slices
  • 12 fresh strawberries
  • 1/4 cup Grape-Nuts cereal
  • 3 Tbsp. pecans, finely chopped and toasted
  • 1/3 cup reduced fat strawberry-banana yogurt

Combine the cereal lunesta and pecans; stir well, and set aside. Place the strawberries and banana slices on wooden picks; dip the fruit in the yogurt, coating halfway up the sides of the fruit pieces.

Roll the yogurt-coated portion of the strawberries and bananas in the cereal mixture. Place them on a baking sheet lined with wax paper. Cover and freeze for 45 minutes to 1 hour, or until firm.
