Dressed Up Yogurt

Combine all ingredients in the yogurt container. Grab a spoon and go!
Extra: Any jam or nut combination can be added. Pair strawberry jam with pistachios for a colorful alternative.
Kicked Up Quesadilla
- 2 flour tortillas (regular or whole-wheat)
- 1/2 cup grated sharp cheddar
- Several thin slices of a Granny Smith apple
Sprinkle an even layer of cheese over one tortilla. Scatter the apple slices on top of the cheese and top with the remaining tortilla. Microwave for 30 seconds or until the cheese melts. For a crisper tortilla, use a large skillet and crisp for 1-2 minutes on both sides, until the cheese is melted. Cut into 6-8 wedges.
Frozen Fruit Smoothie
- 2 cups frozen berries or fruit
- 1/2 cup Indian River Select ® 100% Pure Orange Juice
- 1/2 cup water
- 1/2 cup yogurt
- 1 frozen banana
- 1 Tbsp. honey
Add all ingredients to your blender and blend until completely smooth.
- 2 pieces of whole wheat bread
- 1 tsp butter, softened
- 1-1/2 Tbsp. jam
Lightly butter both pieces of bread. Spread the jam over the butter onto just one piece of bread, leaving 1/2 inch border around the edges. Top with the remaining slice of bread. Cut off the crust and seal the two pieces of bread together using the tines of a fork. Slide into the toaster; then *pop* breakfast is ready.
