Greek yogurt is thick and hearty. Make it yourself to avoid the artificial sweeteners and thickeners in some commercial brands. Alternately, you can make a regular whole-milk yogurt by stopping before straining the yogurt. This recipe is inspired by Molly Sheridan at SeriousEats.com.
Dark chocolate and toasted coconut come together to create the perfect gluten-free dessert. It also works as a super late-afternoon pick-me-up. You can use any toasted nut in place of the coconut, or combine nuts with the coconut if you like.
Make a peanut-butter alternative with your favorite seeds. Roasting the seeds before blending gives the butter a lovely flavor and color. You could try adding a dash of cinnamon or cocoa powder if you like.
Experiment with this recipe by trying other berries or fruits and different combinations of seeds. (If you decide to skip the rhubarb and use all berries, you can cut down on the sugar.) Serve warm with a drizzle of Greek yogurt or a scoop of ice cream.
This delicious recipe makes a fresh, crunchy, family-pleasing treat that kids can help prepare. While this snack does contain some sugar (in the form of brown-rice and maple syrups), the nuts help slow sugar absorption and offer a dose of healthy nutrition. The popcorn provides a healthy dose of fiber. The herbs add wholesome flavor both kids and adults will enjoy.
