There are two foods that literally make my mouth water when I look, smell, touch, or think about them. Truly uncontrollable salivating. It is kiwi and raspberries. In fact, as I look at the raspberry pictures, and write this post, I can’t stop my mouth from watering.
Why should your kids eat raspberries?
Please, for the love of your children, buy or grow some raspberries. They taste great:
- You may add them to baked goods like muffins or breads, pancakes, waffles.
- Add raspberries to smoothies
- make popsicles out of them
- eat them straight
- mix with yogurt
- make jam
- Top your oatmeal
For dessert tonight, I wanted to do something the kids could make themselves! We called it Raspberry cheesecake, simply because the crust was graham crackers, the filling was creamy, and we topped it with berries!
All we did was:
Step 1: Crush Graham Crackers
Crush Graham crackers, and add them to the bottom layer of a cup or dish. This is great for kids. Place graham crackers in a sealable bag, and roll over the bag with a rolling pin to crush.
Step 2: Top with Greek Yogurt and Raspberries
Step 3: Freeze for 1 hour
1 hour is perfect so your yogurt can still be spooned into, and is firm, but not rock hard frozen.
