1 cupFresh or Frozen Raspberries
2 cupsPlain or Vanilla Yogurt
4 tspHoney
2Store Bought or Home Made Oatmeal Cookies, crushed


  1. Mix ¼ of the raspberries and honey in the bottom of each of 4 glasses. Add about a ½ cup of yogurt to each glass and top with crumbled cookies.


  • ​If you want to gain weight or are having difficulty keeping weight on, choose a higher fat yogurt (10% milk fat or higher). If you are trying to lose weight or prevent weight gain, choose a lower fat yogurt (0% or 1% milk fat).
  • Yogurt contains good bacteria that helps maintain the balance of good and bad bacteria in your digestive system. Probiotic yogurt has even more good bacteria added to it. If you are healthy, choose probiotic yogurt to get more good bacteria. This may help with constipation and diarrhea and may also lower the risk of stomach and colon cancers. If you are on chemotherapy it is best to choose yogurt without added probiotics until your treatment is finished.
  • Honey is rich in calories from sugar, but is a healthier choice than white sugar. Honey does not raise blood sugar levels as high as white sugar does. It also contains antioxidants and plant nutrients that have been shown to prevent tumour growth in animal studies.
  • Choose pasteurized honey if you are on chemotherapy. Do not give honey to children under 1 year.
  • Rather than having cookies for a snack, use a cookie as a garnish for foods that are higher in nutrients, such as fruit and yogurt.  Using packaged cookies in moderation sets a good example for kids to help them form healthy eating habits. If you make your own cookies, freeze a few to use in recipes such as this one.
