My boys, including my husband, are all very picky eaters, so thinking outside the box has always been a must when in the kitchen. I thought eating healthier would make this more difficult, but it actually opened us up to a world of new food and recipe possibilities. Heart-healthy foods are those low in fats, sodium, and other ingredients that are bad for heart. There are many delicious foods that fit into this category, including three great new products from General Mills: Cheerios™ +Ancient Grains, Gluten Free Chex™ Granola Mix, and Nature Valley® Nut Crisp Bars.
Cheerios™ +Ancient Grains because I love all Cheerios and wanted to give these a try.
As you can see from the photo, they were on sale this week (a buy one, get one free special). Plus, you can print the $.75 off Cheerios Publix coupon making them $1.44 a box! What a bargain!
Cheerios™ + Ancient Grains is so appealing to me not only because my husband and I love whole grains, but it also only has 5 grams of sugar! This delicious cereal contains quinoa, oats, KAMUT wheat, and spelt, making this a wholesome treat for the entire family. I knew exactly what I wanted to create with my new cereal and got to work on it as soon as I got home.
Fresh Fruit & Cheerios + Ancient Grains Probiotic Yogurt Shooters
This is a super easy recipe and something you can throw together for breakfast or snack time. You can use your choice of fruit and yogurt. I, however, love vanilla yogurt with bananas, grapes, and apples. Strawberries and blueberries are also great when in season. I didn't have shooter glasses, so I used some reusable containers that make a perfect snack size.
1 cup Vanilla Yogurt
Cheerios + Ancient Grains
Just chop up your fruit to the desired size:
Then, create layers by placing a handful of one fruit, 2 teaspoons of yogurt, another fruit, etc. When you get to the top, add your Cheerios + Ancient Grains! This way they stay crunchy until it's time to eat. As you can see, I made two different cups. One has more yogurt added in for myself, but my kiddos prefer more fruit than yogurt, so the other is for my son. You can really make these to your own liking. That's the great thing about this recipe. Cheerios + Ancient Grains make a perfect topping for yogurt!
