Healthy Easter Treat

Healthy Easter Treat

We have been making lots of Cookies and Cupcakes lately, so I wanted to try and make a healthier treat for the girls that was still fun for Easter.  These Healthy Easter Treats are great because they are still fun, but since they are made with Greek yogurt they are much healthier than other options.

I know the whip cream and sprinkles aren’t healthy but since it is a special treat for Easter I thought a little fun would be okay.  And it makes the kids think the whole thing is just a yummy dessert instead of a healthy treat.

We used the Chobani blueberry, key lime, and strawberry banana Greek yogurt for this recipe.  However the strawberry banana was much whiter in color than I thought it would be so I used a couple drops of red food color to make it more pink.  You do not need to do this it is totally optional.  I am willing to bet however that if you bought a different yogurt it would already be pinker.  I believe the Strawberry, cherry, or dark cherry flavors have more color to them. You could also use different flavors and make a different color combination all together.

    These treats looks scrumptious! I think it’s just the banana that makes the strawberry banana so pale colored. Looks good though with the touch of food coloring :) I would eat it even if you told me it was yogurt! pinning :) Thanks for linking with us!

      LOL, I know. But to get them to eat something healthy sometimes you have to dress it up a bit. Kids love fun treats and with mine if it looks this fun they wont even question what they are eating. But I totally agree the whip cream and peep are not healthy at all, but you could always leave them out if you wanted.

    This looks delicious! I have just shared this post on Google+ and Pinterest.

    By the way, many people are now realizing that cream is actually not as unhealthy as we were first misled to believe. Sugars are definitely a problem but the saturated fats in cream, butter, animal fat etc are not unhealthy. Here is a link to the most recent findings in case you are interested.
