The Trifecta: Oikos, POM, & Kashi
My absolute favorite afternoon snack is one that is indulgent yet healthy. I look forward to it all day, and have been known to eat it right after lunch on occasion because I am too excited to wait.
This snack is simple to make, but the flavors are not simple at all. I strongly urge you to give it a chance! You will be surprised at the party in your mouth.
I love that 3 of the 4 ingredients are made my companies I truly respect and adore: Oikos (Stonyfield Farm’s Greek yogurt), POM, and Kashi. The addition of a few mini chocolate chips adds the perfect amount of decadence. When your belly is rumbling but dinner is still hours away, make this.
The Trifecta Yogurt Snack
4 oz container vanilla Oikos yogurt (or the 5.3 oz container, if you are really hungry)
about 40 g fresh POM pomegranate arils (you should be able to get 3-4 days of this snack out of one pomegranate, unless you have a PhillyBoy to sneak spoonfuls of pomegranate after work. How to here)
7 g Nestle Tollhouse mini chocolate chips
1 Kashi TLC Roasted Almond Crunch bar (2 come to a package)
Pour yogurt into a bowl. Place 1 TLC bar in a plastic baggie and crush with a mallet or rolling pin. Top the yogurt with the crushed bar pieces, the pomegranate arils, and the chocolate chips. Mix together and enjoy with the teeniest spoon you own!
