All the fruit & Yoghurt Biscuit Trifles at the show where made with stunning local produce from Jeffers Market if your on the Sunshine Coast or visit this way ever - you NEED to go and check out Jeffers!
I love this recipe so much and I wanted to demonstrate just how easy and simple it can be to make something AMAZING and healthy for the lunch box that kids really will demolish and better yet can even make themselves for their own lunchbox the night before! Oh yeah! Less work for us mums!!
And one of the greatest things about this recipe is you can use whatever fruit is in season right now, whatever fruit is on special or locally grown and beautiful and whatever fruit your kids like and each child can make theirs with their favourites!
What you need
- A nice clean jar with a good sealing lid.
- Yoghurt of choice. I like Maleny dairies, Jalna, Qld Yoghurt and Five AM. (Not paid to say that). For all the ones made at the show and the one pictured here I used Maleny Dairies yoghurt.
- Assorted fresh fruit, think things like blueberries, strawberries, rock melon, kiwi fruit, watermelon, passionfruit, pineapple, paw paw grapes and whatever is in season and tastes great in your area.
- A nice healthy biscuit. Homemade is best or look for one that is gluten free and refined sugar free.
- Spoon to pack with it!
- Prepare all the fruit you will be using.
- Make sure jar is squeaky clean.
- Get the kids to assemble a generous layer of yoghurt.
- Top with lashing of beautiful fresh fruit.
- Place biscuit in a paper bag and smash until it resembles crumbles.
- Sprinkle biscuit crumbs on top.
- Seal and pack with an ice pack for an exciting morning tea!
- For dairy free use coconut yoghurt or soy yoghurt.
- You can either create just like this OR do it in layers like a real trifle, starting with a biscuit base, then yoghurt, then fruit, then biscuit, then yoghurt then fruit etc.
