Chocolate Almond Yogurt Parfait

Thanks to my friends at Post Foods for inspiring today's recipe by sending me cereal!

My husband and my son eat a snack of yogurt every day, mid-morning. One particular day last week we had several appointments that would overlap our normal lunch time. I wanted to offer the guys a snack that satisfied their yogurt routine but added a little something extra to keep my son full for a little bit longer and hopefully avoid a hunger-induced meltdown, as well as the quick solution to the meltdown {a Happy Meal}.




Inspiration hit me. With 2 ingredients I created yogurt parfaits that my guys went wild for.

Details
Prep time: 2 minutes Cook time: 0 Total time: Yield: 1 serving

This recipe is so simple. All you need to do is layer the cereal and the yogurt. Serve it for happy and healthy snacking. I love that each cup of Honey Bunches of Oats Morning Energy Chocolatey Almond Crunch has 6 grams of protein and 33 grams of whole grains per serving. My son liked the crunch in his yogurt and he survived the 30-minute delay in lunch meltdown free.
