Breastfeeding snacks are something I'm always trying to come up with. I'm constantly hungry and I get bored with the same thing all the time, but I'm tired and pressed for time so I need easy things to make!
I came up with this one when my little guy was 3 months old and I'm a big fan of it now!
I use plain, unsweetened yogurt because I can use it for savoury dinner recipes and also my sweet fixes. I just sweeten with honey (unless it's cooked, in which case I sweeten with rice malt syrup as honey shouldn't be cooked according to Ayurvedic medicine).
I love to have proteinous snacks where possible as they keep me going better, but they all need to be kept cold! This breastfeeding snack is awesome because I can take it out with me to a park - having the frozen berries in it keeps it cold and stops me worrying about it going off while I'm out in the heat of summer.
Also, having the cacao nibs and berries in it I know I'm getting a nice hit of antioxidants.
Pour your desired amount of yoghurt into a bowl or container
Add some honey to your preferred sweetness level
Mix tem til they're combined
Add frozen berries and cacao nibs (I used too many cacao nibs the first time and it was a bit strong, but heaps of berries is great!)
If you want to be a bit fancier you could put some freshly chopped mint in too - it would look quite festive I think!

I love to bake and stopped for quite a while after my second son was born. I'm back in full swing now, but it's all changed to things that are quick and easy to prepare, and also have toddler friendly attributes such as hidden vegetables!
It costs me money to keep this site running. If I've made your day easier it would be really helpful for me if you could spare a few dollars to help me keep the site running with useful, current information! It's your way of saying
