Frozen Ban-Ola

 This one looks very gross but it's a big hit for snack time! I got this recipe from Wholesome Toddler Foods and it is a great way to get your toddler to eat fruit, dairy, and some healthy grains!

  • 1 medium banana, peeled
  • 1/2 cup crushed granola
  • plain or vanilla yogurt (blueberry works well too)
  1. Dip banana in your choice of yogurt
  2. Roll banana in crushed granola
  3. Place in freezer bag and freeze. To thaw just put out for a couple of minutes until soft enough to cut.
    I used blueberry yogurt and I did 1/3 of a banana as a serving as the bananas I bought were rather large. I think I made about 9 servings of it and freezed them. They thaw very quickly so it's a good quick snack food. The cold is great for a teething toddler as well! And it's a very easy finger food for him. He loves this snack but I only give it to him on days where he doesn't eat a lot of other dairy. He eats banana each morning and I don't like to overdue it on the banana or on the dairy as he's a milk lover!
