I wanted to share with you some delicious recipes that I make at home for myself to tie me over when I have not been able to have a proper breakfast or lunch, and also as a back-from-school snack for my children. 

It goes without saying "healthy" eating is my drive for these recipes.  Setting the example of healthy snacking starts with me so I am always looking for creative ways to do so. Often times, I use these recipes for breakfast as well. 

Below I am going to share my two favorite ones which have yogurt as one of the main ingredients. I always have Dannon yogurts at home for the adults and the children. I personally love Activia, not only for its wonderful health benefits, but also because of its flavors and smoothness.  I have one every day.

Here are two of my favorites recipes to tie me over with Dannon Activia.

Tie-Me-Over Mid Day Snack


  • 4oz of strawberry yogurt Dannon Activia (my favorite flavor)
  • 1/2 cup of Kashi cereal [one of your preference]
  • 5 strawberries or any berries of your choice


Just mix everything in a bowl and enjoy!


Tie-Me-Over Deli Afternoon Smoothie


  • 4oz of strawberry yogurt Dannon Activia (my favorite flavor)
  • 1/4 of cooked quinoa
  • 1 cup of ice cubes
  • 1/4 of flax seeds
  • 4oz of low-fat or skim milk to thin if it's too thick.
  • 1/2 mango, 5 strawberries, 1 carrot and any other fruits of your choice. I love bananas, but my children do not like the smell just like my husband – I guess it runs in the family 😉


Put all the ingredients in a [good] blender and press ON! 😉

Note: you can add sugar to both snacks if you'd like.  I personally do not add sugar to anything, not even to my coffee – that's why I did not include it.

About The Author

My real job in life is raising my 3 kids and having a nice, healthy and active family life. Along the way, I realized that motherhood didn’t come with a manual and frequently asked questions so I had to learn my way through with the help and advice of other mothers and that is how I decided to start a blog about tips for busy moms, The Moms Buzz, a lifestyle blog about only the buzz that matters. Modern moms are busy busy, and whatever tips make our lives easier we are ready to try them, we don’t have the time to read and read lengthy advices, but we can certainly read 1-2-3-SOLVED.
