Happy Baby Yogurt Parfaits with Homemade Granola!

 

 

Not sure if you all know this but Baby O LOVES yogurt. If you follow us on Instagram, you definitely know this because we have plenty of pictures of her with yogurt all over her face.. and hair. Lucky for us (and you), HappyBaby now makes whole milk yogurt and it’s available at your local Walmart! 

We are already huge fans of the Happy Family line because it’s delicious, has probiotics for Baby O’s growing belly, organic and has no artificial sweeteners. Plus, this package comes with six perfectly sized portions for her. Oh, and they have three flavors – plain, blueberry, and peach & mango. Yum! 

Even better, it’s super affordable! Regular price, the package of yogurt was just $2.48 BUT there is also an Ibotta offer where you can earn a little money back when you utilize this awesome earnings app. I LOVE the Ibotta app but haven’t written about it a ton. If you haven’t downloaded it yet, use the code “jqmcgfn” for a little extra bonus. Then, when you purchase HappyBaby Yogurt Cups at Walmart, you earn $1.00 back which makes then $1.48 each! 

Back at home and ready to use our yogurt to make some delicious baby friendly parfaits. You could totally just eat these plain, which Baby O did this morning too, without getting any in her hair thank you very much. 

We used Pinch of Yum’s granola recipe for inspiration for our yogurt parfaits. I didn’t have all the same ingredients (like pistachios) but it worked just as well with a few substitutions. Depending on what HappyBaby yogurt you used, you can update some of these ingredients to pair well with your flavor. I love the coconut oil used in this granola because it adds some really yummy flavor in with the yogurt. Since we chose the peach and mango flavor, it’s like a yummy taste of toddler paradise. I imagine toddler paradise consists of Zootopia and Secret Life of Pets on repeat while nomming on these parfaits. 
I’m weirdly obsessed with this packaging. I think it’s SO cute and it’s recyclable which is wonderful. Oh, this would be a really yummy recipe to make for a toddler play date! Get them some healthy snacks before they run around and crash for nap time. Sounds magical to me. Disclaimer though – if your babe isn’t big enough to eat seeds, nuts OR blueberries, please make sure to edit so it’s safe for them. Baby O eats everything under the sun so she’s good to go. But, if you aren’t sure about what your little one can eat yet, be sure to check in with your pediatrician. 

Baby O is digging it! She’s already a yogurt fan so this was an even yummier recipe for her to try. We can’t wait to try the plain and blueberry flavors too. 

What flavors are you excited to try? What other recipes will you make with the HappyBaby yogurt, or would your little one just eat it plain? Don’t forget about the killer Ibotta offer when you purchase it at your local Walmart.
