fresh or thawed frozen blueberries
2 (8 ounce) cartons
non-fat lemon yogurt
This was really yummy and even prettier to serve. I blended a spoonful of Cool Whip into the yogurt. It gave it a smoother texture and was a little stiffer, so the top layer of yogurt didn't run down over the blueberries, hiding those pretty layers. The layer order went yogurt, cookie crumbs, blueberries, repeat. I served these at a brunch baby shower and put them in little punch glasses with a mint leaf on top (that's my picture with the recipe) and they just looked so classy sitting at everyone's place setting.
This was good for a quick dessert fix. I think I would like it better with strawberries which I will try next time. Just a personal preference. I did take JODILICIOUS's advice and added fat-free cool whip to the yogurt. Thanks
This is a great dessert! We substituted vanilla yogurt for lemon and used wild blueberries we picked at the top of Pleasant Mountain in Maine. I will definitely make this again!
We bought WAY TOO MANY fresh blueberries so I was searching for ways to use them before they spoiled. We have had this for a dessert three times in the past week and everyone polisheed off every bite - all three times! Its a nice light summer dessert that is very refreshing and so good for you!
Who knew something so yum could be so good for you too? I used Greek yogurt and was thrilled to see the health benefits of ginger snaps! This makes a terrific breakfast as is and if in a hurry, would also make a super smoothie. Thank you!!
We loved this. We added some strawberries for 4th of July picnic. Big hit! I also added the cool whip to yogurt for creaminess. Excellent!
I really liked the combination of these flavours together. I used wild blueberries because they're sweeter and have more flavour. A really nice change for breakfast.
Cool and refreshing. I used Yoplait original blueberry acai yogurt instead of lemon yogurt but I would like to try it that way next! I also used graham cracker crumbs. A very nice quick and healthy snack. I enjoy all recipes that make use of the abundance of South Jersey blueberries we have in July!
