Healthy granola fruit pots
Healthy yoghurt fruit pots are a great thing to take on a picnic or a packed lunch. They can be prepared in no time upfront, are easily portable and can be kept cool in a cooler bag or fridge.
They can also be prepared as breakfast yoghurt pots the night before, or taken on trips. You may even want to eat them for dessert. And the great thing is – they are really healthy.
The pots we use in these photos once contained pâté when we bought them. They were holding a delicious salmon pâté that was so good we bought a few of them.
And now they are perfect for our little picnic trips to the beach. The ones shown below are a bit bigger if you have a good appetite.
But there are also some smaller ones available on Amazon if you need to get some.
Need some pots for your yoghurt pots?
We like the way you can make them up as you please. You can use any type of frozen fruit from the freezer – these ones have summer fruits in them. By the time you go to eat them, they will have defrosted.
Granola Yogurt Pots
You can choose between granola and muesli to make your fruit pots. Or you can even just use porridge oats with dried raisins if you prefer. These pots were filled with fruity muesli. What a healthy lunch snack!
You can vary your chosen yoghurt as well, using low fat or a nice full-fat Greek yoghurt, as I did in these pictures. This will depend on any dietary requirements you might have.
And personally, I think that granola beats muesli. But there are some good mueslis out there – I can always be happily surprised!
Healthy Picnic Food
If you are really feeling ambitious you could make your own healthy homemade granola to go in this delicious picnic snack.
Yoghurt and granola always go well together, but adding the fruit just makes it perfect. Choose your favourite or even make a fruit compote instead by stewing the fruit in some sugar beforehand. I might do this next time 😃.
Remember to keep them cool until you eat them, and make sure you don’t forget to pack a spoon!
