Rainbow Yogurt

I thrilled my children recently with rainbow yogurt. It's easy to whip up this edible rainbow for a dessert or snack.  Thanks to Yoplait Greek 100 Whips! for sponsoring today's post. To make your own rainbow, you night begin with their vanilla flavor...so good...or mix and match flavors like we did.  Either way, an edible, healthy rainbow is sure to be a hit. 
Edible Rainbow Yogurt in a Cup
Using approximately one container of Yoplait yogurt per person enjoying the rainbow snack, divide the yogurt among six bowls (or seven bowls if you want to distinguish between blue and indigo). Add a small amount of food coloring to add color. Repeat to make the colors of the rainbow.

Add a spoon to each bowl. Remind the children of Roy G. Biv...the acronym to remember the colors of the rainbow. Yogurt in bowls to make a rainbow.
Provide a clear cup or bowl to each of the children. Instruct them to place a spoonful or more of each color into their cup. Use the back of the spoon to spread the yogurt in layers.  Assist younger children.

My own children immediately swirled and mixed their rainbow, so if I were to do it again, I would use one flavor for the rainbow yogurt snack. 

Some Yoplait Greek 100 Whips! Yogurt Mousse are good enough to be called dessert. Strawberry Cheesecake or Vanilla Cupcake anyone?  Whips! come in eight flavors. With 100 calories each, 9 grams of protein, and 0% fat, they make a great treat. My favorite way to eat a Whip! is sprinkled with my granola for a healthy treat. Create your own 100 calorie dessert using other ideas.
