Instructions for a yogurt and berry cone

1. Chop the fruit into small pieces.

Kids can help wash or peel fruit, and add the chopped pieces to their cones.

2. Fill the bottom of the cone with pieces of fruit.

  • Putting a layer of fruit into the cone first will help keep the cone from getting soggy. (But this can be ok too, if you prefer the cone to be softened!)

3. Spoon yogurt over the fruit pieces in the cone.

4. Top with more fruit.

Some yogurt will drizzle down through the cone. If you leave the cone sitting too long it will become a bit soggy.

But you won't have to worry about that because.....

this cool treat is so delicious it will probably be gobbled up right away!
