Saturday Snack

Just saw this snack recipe while enjoying watching a favorite Saturday TV show, Oklahoma Gardening.   Besides being healthy, it could be served in many cute ways. Bon appetit!

Fresh Fruit with Cinnamon Yogurt

6 ounces. vanilla low-fat yogurt     
1/2 teaspoon.ground cinnamon
Mix together and set aside.

2 c. prepared fruit, like peeled, cored, sliced apples; peeled, sectioned oranges; stemmed strawberries; peeled, sliced kiwi; pitted, sliced peaches; peeled, chunked bananas; peeled, chunked pears, etc.
1/4 cup 100% orange juice

Put prepared fruit in a bowl Sprinkle with orange juice and toss.  This add flavor and prevents browning of the fruit.  Arrange fruit on 4 pretty saucers.  Scoop dip into a small custard cup for each.  Serves 4.

For a fun treat for kids, skewer the fruit pieces on cute, colorful cocktail stirrers or chopsticks.  Serve each person's dip in small paper party cups.  Turn it into a breakfast treat by adding in strips of French toast.  This is a tasty way to get more fruit into your child's diet.
