beach scene snack

clara’s preschool summer session started this week and of course, as usual, they make their snacks everyday again.  today was a beach scene vanilla pudding.  i have seen similar recipe in a magazine somewhere (probably in doctor’s office waiting room), but was able to find some images on line like this one.  At first, i tried making it with vanilla pudding, but i think it will be much easier with yogurt, so i am including the yogurt version…

ocean
2T (28g) Fage greek yogurt, Total Classic
2T (30g) Heavy whipping cream
1/2T (8g) DaVinci Sugar free syrup, vanilla flavor

1/2T (3g) chopped almond

Directions
