As soon as berries come to my grocery store, I get excited about spring!  Strawberries, blueberries, raspberries and blackberries are so much better when they are fresh and in season. We don’t mind frozen berries, at all, but some things- like this crunchy parfait bite, fresh is best!

Are fresh berries better than frozen?

While fresh berries might taste better than frozen berries, nutritionally, they are similar. In fact, frozen might be a bit more nutrient rich if the berries are picked at the peak of ripeness and flash frozen.   While cooking degrades the nutrients slightly, freezing actually preserves the fiber, vitamins, and minerals of the berries.

The Recipe

These were really easy to make.  I whipped up a batch in less than 15 minutes!I used Wonton Wrappers. I just pressed them into a mini muffin tin and baked at 375 for about 8 minutes until they started to turn golden.

Then I filled each cup with:

  • Yogurt – We like plain Greek yogurt, but any type will work
  • Granola – This is our favorite homemade granola recipe
  • Fruit – I diced kiwi, blueberries, and strawberries

Voila!!My kids liked breaking off the edges and dipping it in the yogurt.  If you have extra, you can put them in a tupperware, and store in the fridge for the next morning.  The shell softens up and it is almost like eating a pastry!

yum, I can’t wait to try these. do you know if whole grain wanton wrappers are available- probably asking for too much!

Clinically relevant withdrawal states occur only after an
individual’s intake of cannabinol in very
large amounts (e. These people tend to be either recreational marijuana users or are people who are on the pro-legalization side of the debate.

Even so the trends are commuting and more and
more people prefer to purchase drugs from Online Stores.
That first web browser introduced the road for the growth as well
as the progression of what’s now referred to as the
internet, the humongous network of real information and communication that has influenced the lives of
huge numbers of people the world over.

What would you suggest I add to the crust when backing it so that it doesn’t become too sharp and hard. I tried baking multiple wraps at different times and despite the time it took to get brown they all came out with sharp ends. Other than that the kids loved them.

If you are worried about the sharp edges, you can let them cool in the refrigerator and it will soften up the shell.
