Orange “Creamsicle” Parfaits Recipe:
My kids LOVE fruit, and I’m so glad they do. I try to enforce healthy snacking habits with my children, so I always opt for fruits as the sweet snack of choice around our house. Sometimes I like to surprise the kids with snacks that they think are “unhealthy”, because it makes them think I’m an awesome mom, and I just like to mix things up a bit.
When I got the chance to work with Lil Snappers, by choosing a recipe from their site I immediately went to the deserts page. As soon as I saw the Orange “Creamsicle” Parfaits Recipe, I knew it would be a big hit, and I was right! This dessert is perfect for kids and adults alike, and is a quick and easy way to wow any guest while keeping things healthy.
You can take a look at the recipe below and try it for yourself. Be sure to let me know what your kids think of it. I opted to use the mandarin oranges because they are easier for little mouths to eat. Oranges can be a choking hazard for toddlers and mandarin oranges are the perfect substitute or navel oranges.
With over 20 varieties of Lil Snappers available (including organic) you are sure to find the perfect fruit for your little ones. My kids were thrilled to open the fridge and find three different kinds of oranges and a bag of Lil Snappers Pink Lady apples. And of course they asked for them every day at snack time. This fruit is the perfect size for little hands, and makes a great addition to lunch boxes, and snack bowls.

- 8 oz. vanilla-flavored Greek yogurt

- In a small glass or transparent glass dessert dish, layer 2 to 3 tablespoons of yogurt mixture, top with orange segments, and a sprinkle of graham cracker crumbs; repeat layer.
- Serve cold.
Note: To cut segments, turn orange on its side, slice both ends off, and discard ends. Stand the orange upright and carefully cut away the peel and pith, following the natural curve of the fruit. Holding the fruit in one hand, use a paring knife in the opposite hand to carefully cut between membranes to release segments.
