A Desert or Snack: Strawberry Flax Yogurt

I put flax seed into the yogurt that I feed my family. My son will eat this, but is always a bit hesitant. I found a fun trick that not only he enjoys, but all of us love.

We take basic vanilla yogurt, Stonyfield Farms Organic is what we buy. We mix a bit of strawberry jam into the yogurt and then add the flax seed. Just a tiny bit of the jam turns the yogurt into a sweet and strawberry treat. The flax adds important omega-3's and fiber that we all need.

This is a common desert item in our house as the jam does wonders to basic yogurt. And,this is an easy and very popular afternoon snack around here.
