I really never thought we would get a pool. It was a childhood dream of my own to have a swimming pool in the garden, but it remained just a dream. My kids really wanted one and while we had room for it, I just didn’t see how we could make it work. We just finally made the investment and as the pool gate was hung on its hinges, Melbourne turned up the heat. We got two full days of splashing before the temperature dropped again, but that was enough for me to see how this will be the summer for creating beautiful childhood memories right in our own backyard. It is going to be an open door policy here. I want to be the home filled with friends and laughter this summer. I am expecting lots of kids coming over to spend the day in our little rectangle of aqua water, so I want to be prepared to keep them happy with healthy snacks.
I tested out my summer treats on the twins and they both loved these little pots of deliciousness.
The great thing with the Black Swan Greek Yoghurt is that while it is great on its own, it goes well with many ingredients. It is so versatile for these little treats, you can choose whatever flavour of preserves you want! The possibilities of what you can create are really endless. I had mine with apricot jam and blueberries and a slice of toast.
The twins decided they wanted strawberry jam and fresh strawberries. They aren’t super adventurous with their food.
I am excited to see what lovely preserves I can find at the local markets and create all sorts of flavour combinations that I could never find in prepackaged yoghurt tubs! These are easy to make and have in your fridge, just get some half size mason jars with lids, put the jam on the bottom, then fill up with the yoghurt and top with fresh fruit, seeds or whatever you like and seal to make easy single servings of yummy snacks.
Bring on summer, it is going to be delicious!
