This is one of Roxie’s favorite after workout snacks! It’s so yummy you will forget it’s healthy! With plenty of protein, fiber and iron, it packs a great nutritional punch and when you make it in a parfait glass the presentation is perfect for a healthy dessert or afternoon snack! The kids will love it too!

8 oz of plain yogurt (Greek if possible)
1/2 cup uncooked ready to eat oatmeal
2 tbsp of ground flaxseed
1/4 cup of strawberries
1/4 cup of blueberries

Mix the oatmeal and flaxseed
put 4 oz of yogurt in a parfait glass
layer 1/2 of the oatmeal/flaxseed mixture
layer 1/2 of the strawberries and blueberries
repeat the layers and chill in the refrigerator until serving
