Ingredients

  • 1 lb Plain full fat Greek yogurt
  • maple syrup optional, to taste
  • 2 cups cereal optional, one cup each of two different cereals
  • 2 cups 100% fruit juice optional, one cup each of two different flavors
  • 1 T gelatin

Instructions

  1. The night before:

    Instructions for 1 cup of fruit juice: Get two bowls out, and one cup of chilled juice. Pour 1/4 cup of juice into one bowl, and the rest into the other. Sprinkle 1/2 T of gelatin over the 1/4 cup of juice and allow to bloom for a couple of minutes. Microwave the other bowl of juice until just boiling. Add the hot juice to the gelatin juice and mix until fully combined. Pour the juice into a mold and place in the refrigerator when no longer hot. Allow to set for several hours of over night. Repeat with another cup of a different flavored juice. When solidified, take a fork and mash the jelly up into pieces. Note: using two different colored juices will make for a prettier presentation!

    In the morning: 

    In clear cups, layer yogurt, jelly, and cereal. You may want to sweeten your yogurt with some maple syrup. I give my kids plain, but sweeten mine slightly. You can also use flavored yogurt. 

    Eat immediately, as cereal will start to get soggy if you leave it too long.
