I love dessert! Who doesn’t? I love eating dessert, thinking about dessert, and making up new desserts! So, when I recently invited the neighborhood kids over for a little get together I was in my element! While I have a serious found spot for the sweeter things in life, I don’t ignore the need to be healthy! So, I concentrated my dessert search to something that includes Tillamook Yogurt! Tillamook Yogurt is all natural with no artificial flavors, colors, or sweeteners! That’s a whole lot of natural yum in one spot! Here’s how I determine if a dessert recipe meets my standards:
My check list
- Tastes good
- Looks good
- Is good for you
While on the computer I came across this blog post and I knew I stumbled onto something good! It met all my stated standards and, frankly, how can a kid not love a rainbow colored dessert. I changed the recipe slightly, using Tillamook Vanilla Bean Yogurt instead of sour cream to make it more dessert like and less salad like. You can use any Tillamook Yogurt flavor but I liked the idea of using something white to make the JELL-O layers pop!
Use any colors you want, make the dessert in any shape that fits your party, and have a healthy treat you can feel good about sharing with the kids in your life!
