Yogurt & Fruit “Sundaes” for the Lunchbox

Yogurt & Fruit Sundaes | The Naptime Chef

I am so thrilled to announce that this year I’ll be working with Cascadian Farm to produce exciting content on The Naptime Chef and for their website featuring their amazing selection of frozen fruit and vegetables. I’ve been a longtime fan of their frozen produce and frequently use it in my cooking working together is a natural fit. There is so much wonderful family-friendly fare that can be made with frozen produce, let’s dive in together!

Since it is back-to-school season and I am also in back-to-school mode with work I thought I’d start off with a simple, yet delicious, lunchbox treat my kids adore: Yogurt & Fruit “Sundaes”. Instead of making it a formal parfait with studied layers we prefer to take the sundae route. This means filling a jar or plastic container with our favorite flavor yogurt (this changes on a daily basis in our house, just use what flavor yogurt your children prefer), and topping it like a sundae with loads of fruit and some crunchy cereal or granola.

When we make our sundaes I turn to Cascadian Farm frozen fruits. I purchase a selection of frozen berries and peaches and let my children graze through the freezer. I don’t mind if they only use a small handful of each food because the frozen fruit keeps so well, I just keep the bag clipped up tight until they need more.

We tend to use up the fruit bags after about two or three weeks of packing sundaes. That is far longer than any fresh fruit would keep in the fridge!
