A little fun fact about me: I was Dorothy in my middle school’s production of Wizard of Oz in sixth grade. It was by far the highlight of my childhood and really sparked my love for music and singing even more.
My love runs deep for the Wizard of Oz and all things Judy Garland, so naturally, I had to introduce our daughter to the movie. She loved it and we’ve now watched it many times, own a Dorothy dress and even saw the play at a local high school. And if that’s not enough, we sing “Somewhere Over the Rainbow” almost every night before bed together. Girlfriend might like Dorothy even more than I did!
When we first moved to our new house, I had a box of my childhood things laying out when Peyton noticed a small frame with a picture of me as Dorothy. She was so excited to see it and asked if she could keep it on her dresser in her room. She still has it on top of her dresser! Just the sweetest thing.
All of this Wizard of Oz talk has a purpose – this rainbow Greek yogurt bowl! You can’t help but look at it and not want to sing “Somewhere Over the Rainbow”. This is just another one of my kid-friendly recipes I’m sharing this week in hopes that you’ll get your kiddos to join you in the kitchen.
This recipe is SO easy and such a healthy one for the kids to devour. It would also be a really fun one to make for St. Patrick’s Day! Peyton’s face lit up when saw it and she scarfed down her whole bowl. If you end up making it, don’t forget to tag #marinamakeseats!
Rainbow Greek Yogurt Bowl
- 3 cups of Greek yogurt
- 1/4 – 1/3 cup of diced strawberries
- 1/4 – 1/3 cup of diced oranges
- 1/4 – 1/3 cup of diced mango
- 1/4 – 1/3 cup of diced kiwi
- 1/4 cup of blueberries
- 1/4 cup of small marshmallows
Place the Greek yogurt in a bowl and smooth it out with a spatula. Begin forming the rainbow with the fruit and add “clouds” to the bottom with the marshmallows. If desired, drizzle lightly with honey and enjoy.
