If you have kids, then I’m sure you are familiar with the snack time struggle – especially when the school routine starts. If you don’t know yet, this is how it goes. Snack time rolls around, you ask your kids what they want, and of course the answer is something ridiculous like cookies, candy or ice cream. Then you offer something healthy instead which is followed by the meltdown of the century because they just have to have something that will send them into an afternoon long frenzy, resulting in an epic crash and burn. Yeah, it’s rough. You already know I’m not big on sugary snacks for kids, but that doesn’t mean snack time can’t be fun! Luckily I’m pretty creative when it comes to faking sweet treats, so I decided to come up with a better for you dip paired with our favorite go-to of Goldfish® crackers. This recipe is super easy, and I love letting Judah help me make it too!
First I have to mention these Baked with Whole Wheat Honey Grahams. You know how much I love Goldfish crackers as a kids snack – they aren’t too salty, too sweet, or too indulgent, but these are by far my favorite! These babies have just the right hint of sweetness with a touch of honey, and guess what? they go perfectly with my dip recipe. Since I keep a regular stock of Goldfish® Crackers pouches for school lunches, I use one pouch per serving of my dip because that way I’ll know the kids aren’t going overboard with their munching. The grahams are perfect for this, but the pretzel works well too!
So, what is this dip? Well, it’s really more of a dressed up yogurt that tastes like a bowl of cake batter. Sound yummy? I think so! Here is what you need:
- 2 cups vanilla Greek yogurt
- 1/2 cup whipped topping (you can use regular but I use light)
- 1 cup boxed vanilla cake mix
- 1/2 cup sprinkles
This is so incredibly easy – all you have to do is whisk together all ingredients and then chill for at least an hour. It doesn’t get any easier than that, right?
Once chilled, serve with the Goldfish flavor of your choice or your favorite fruit and enjoy!
This dip is great for kids who want a little treat, but parents who want to feel better about what they are eating. It’s a great way to get picky kids to eat fruit, and it also goes great on a party table!
