Healthy Apple Treats

Healthy Apple Treats

I love surprising my kids with little treats. A treat in our home doesn't mean candy or toys--it can be as simple as apples with special dips and cut into special shapes. It's the simple things in life, right? This Valentine's Day, I asked my son to help make a snack. Little did he know it was going be a very special Valentine's Day snack for him. He loved helping make it and really love eating it!

How we did it:

Materials List

  1. apples
  2. heart-shaped cookie cutters
  3. greek yogurt (1/2 cup)
  4. cinnamon (1/4 tsp )
  5. honey (1 tbs)
  1. My son and I measured the yogurt, cinnamon, and honey.

  2. We mixed all the ingredients together in a bowl. I let my son taste it to make sure it was yummy. He suggested adding a bit more honey.

  3. I sliced an apple into large, thick pieces and had my son use a cookie cutter to make a heart shape.

  4. He had to push pretty hard to get the cookie cutter through the apple, but eventually it worked and out came a heart-shaped apple. Pretty cute, huh?

  5. We put the apples and dip on a special porcelain plate and sat down to a special treat.

  6. I love how healthy and simple this was and that my son gave it a thumbs up. We'll definitely revisit this healthy treat later on!
