I’ve talked before about how my sons can be picky eaters. I often struggle to find foods and food combinations that they will eat. One thing I frequently find myself doing is sneaking foods that are good for them into foods that they will eat.
In fact, this is how I came up with the idea to create these mini strawberry mouse granola parfaits.
One of the main ingredients in these parfaits is Quaker® Simply Granola Oats, Apples, Cranberries, and Almonds. My boys love this simple, yet tasty and filling granola — particularly because of the satisfying, crunchy granola clusters and inclusions such as real fruit and nuts.
There are two additional varieties of Quaker® Simply Granola including Quaker® Simply Granola Oats, Honey, and Almonds and Quaker® Simply Granola Oats, Honey, Raisin, and Almonds. All of the varieties would be perfect for this recipe!
How to Make Mini Strawberry Mousse Granola Parfaits
This recipe, using Quaker® Simply Granola is easy to make and something your kids will love. You will need:
- 3/4 cup strawberry milk enhancer
- 1/4 cup boiling water
- 1/2 tsp vanilla
- 1 container (16 oz) frozen, nondairy whipped topping (thawed)
- Quaker® Simply Granola Oats, Apples, Cranberries, and Almonds
- Dried cranberries
Begin by combining the strawberry milk enhancer with water until it is completely dissolved. Stir in the vanilla.
The next step is to gently mix the milk enhancer mixture and whipped topping until well blended.
In a miniature parfait cup, layer the ingredients as following: strawberry mousse, granola, and strawberry mousse. Once you have layered the ingredients, top with some dried cranberries. Refrigerate the cups 30 to 40 minutes before serving.
As I said before, this is a snack that my boys love. I like the fact that by sneaking in the granola that the boys are getting something good out of this snack as well.
With the holidays coming up, these mini strawberry mousse granola parfaits are ideal for taking to parties or get-togethers. It will be something that all the guests will love.
You can purchase Quaker® Simply Granola, as well as anything else you might need for this recipe, at your local Walmart. Just look for the granola in the cereal isle!
