5 Easy Snacks for Moms with Stonyfield

As a mom, it’s normal to feel like you are always getting food ready for your kids . . . breakfast, lunch, snacks, snacks, snacks, dinner, and more snacks. I feel the same way. And with all of that food preparation, I found it difficult for me to make my own meals and snacks throughout the day since my little food monster demands so much. This is why I have to plan my “mom snacks” in advance that are quick and easy to make that also satisfy my cravings.

Lately I’ve been incorporating more Greek yogurt into my meals and snacks since Greek yogurt is rich in protein (building muscle, reducing hunger & boosting metabolism), calcium (improving bone health), and contains live and active cultures (good for the tummy). My go-to yogurt for my family and myself is Stonyfield Organic. They make their yogurts without the use of toxic persistent pesticides, artificial hormones, antibiotics or GMOs. And–to put it simply–their yogurts are creamy and delicious! You’ll always find some of their products in our fridge.

So with little time and mama needing some extra yummy, ready-to-go snacks, I’m sharing some easy snacks for moms that are sure to fill you up longer and satisfy that sweet tooth. 😉

Peanut butter swirled yogurt

I am in love with peanut butter! This snack is crazy good especially if you are craving something that’s filling, creamy, and that has a good crunch.

What to Do:

  • Scoop some yummy Stonyfield Greek yogurt into a bowl.
  • Warm up three spoonfuls of peanut butter in the microwave in a separate bowl. This will make it soft and pourable.
  • Stir in the peanut butter in the Greek yogurt.
  • Top it off with something crunchy and sweet! I added a little drizzle of honey and crumbled up some organic graham crackers.
  • Enjoy!

Yogurt-covered cranberries

It’s nice to be able to prepare some snacks after my son has been put to bed so that I have ready-to-go bites with me for the next day that I can easily throw in my bag. This is one of those recipes. 🙂 These yogurt-covered cranberries always give me that kick of energy that I need!

*Warning: this yogurt-coating has a lot of sugar. But so do a lot of commercially-made yogurt-covered snacks. At least this homemade treat is made without oils, emulsifiers, and stabilizers, so that makes me feel better.

Ingredients:

  • 1 tablespoon water
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1/2 teaspoon gelatin
  • 1/4 cup Stonyfield Greek yogurt
  • 1 tablespoon honey
  • Pinch salt
  • 2 cups powdered sugar, plus extra for dusting cranberries
  • 8 ounces (about 3 cups) dried cranberries

Yogurt covered cranberries

What to Do:

  1. Mix together the water and the vanilla in a small dish. Add the gelatin and whisk with a fork until everything is evenly distributed. Let rest for about 5 minutes. (It will set into a thick paste.)
  2. In another small dish, whisk together the Stonyfield Greek yogurt, honey, and salt. Microwave in 8-second bursts, stirring in between each burst, until the yogurt is runny and very warm to the touch. (Don’t let it start to boil or the yogurt will curdle.)
  3. Add the gelatin into the yogurt mixture and whisk together until the gelatin is completely dissolved.
  4. Scrape the yogurt mixture into a small mixing bowl and then pour the powdered sugar on top. Begin mixing gently until they combine into a thick, but pourable, frosting.
  5. In another mixing bowl, add the cranberries with a tablespoon of powered sugar until they are coated.
  6. Pour half of the yogurt coating over the cranberries, and stir until they are completely covered and there is no more dry powered sugar.
  7. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper or wax paper, and pour the coated cranberries evenly across the baking sheet separating them as much as you can. They are vey sticky. Let the cranberries sit, uncovered, until they are dry to the touch. (About 30-45 minutes)
  8. Transfer the cranberries back into the mixing bowl and pour the remaining yogurt coating to given them a second coat. After mixing, put them back onto the lined baking sheet. (Be sure to move the cranberries around to ensure the undersides also have a chance to dry. It will take at least 6 hours or overnight to dry.)
  9. Store yogurt-covered cranberries in an airtight container at room temperature. They will keep for several weeks. 🙂

Strawberry yogurt bark

Now this is the easy recipe of them all! It’s so easy that your kids can even help make it with you. And I’m not gonna lie, this is a great snack for them as well. They will think that they are getting dessert when really this is a very healthy snack! Here’s what you need and how you make it.

Ingredients:

Strawberry yogurt bark recipe

What to Do:

  • Line a pan with parchment paper and spread with yogurt evenly. Make sure that the yogurt is not too thin so that it breaks apart easily. (I would say about 3/8 of an inch thick is good.)
  • Sprinkle with your dried strawberries. (You can even add in other fruits or nuts to mix it up!)
  • Put the pan in your freezer for a few hours until the yogurt is completely frozen. (Mine took about 6 hours.) Once frozen, remove frozen yogurt from the pan and peel off the parchment paper.
  • Break your strawberry yogurt bark into pieces and enjoy!

Instagram post 17852562805720320 Loneliness is a real thing in new motherhood and I want to be sure we talk about this. It's okay to say, "I feel lonely." We normalize one another's experiences when we share the reality of our journey. It can be so isolating when we bring our small human home and our lives revolve around his/her care. We feel detached from the outside world. The monotony of new motherhood can be heavy.⁠
.⁠
Here are some tips to combat isolation:⁠
.⁠
1️⃣ Get outside when possible.⁠
2️⃣ Video chat with friends/family.⁠
3️⃣ Join a virtual group.⁠
4️⃣ Invite someone to come over.⁠
5️⃣ Find a local mom's group.⁠
6️⃣ Listen to the radio or a podcast (it's interesting how this can make us feel connected with others)⁠
7️⃣ Run an errand--even grabbing a coffee via drive-thru can feel good.⁠
8️⃣ Get to know your neighbors.⁠
What would you add to the list?⁠
