Love “Snappsy the Alligator” as much as my family does? Celebrate Snappsy and his love for all foods that start with the letter “P” with Snappsy’s ‘P’ Parfaits – loaded with peach yogurt, puffins cereal and pineapple. Yum!
I love a laugh-out-loud children’s book. Especially when it’s me laughing. And the kids are all… what is going on with her?
Oh man, that Snappsy. He’s one funny guy. Have y’all read “Snappsy the Alligator” yet? This hilarious book by Julie Falatko had me laughing from the beginning. By the end my oldest “got it”, and now it’s a favorite of my six-year-old, too. I’m not sure if two-year-old understands English yet, so I didn’t ask him his opinion.
Turns out Snappsy is an innocent bystander in his own book. (I feel like that in life sometimes.) Anyway, he’s on a mission for food, according to the narrator. Snappsy also has an affinity for foods that start with the letter, “P”, another claim from said narrator.
So, it was in his honor that the kids and I decided to make something Snappsy the Alligator would like. I suggested pepperoni pizza, and then I was reminded that we’ve already done a pizza recipe for y’all. Then Graham suggested parfaits. Parfaits? How does he even know what that is?
But who am I to deny my kids a parfait? Not me, folks.
Snappsy’s ‘P’ Parfaits
Gotta hand it to my son Graham. Snappsy’s ‘P’ Parfait initially sounded like a fabulous idea. Peach yogurt, check. Pineapple, check. A “P” cereal? Now, that was a challenge. Thank you Barbara’s Bakery for your “Puffins” Cereal. Not only does it start with P, but it’ actually really darn good. Perhaps that Snappsy knows what he’s talking about.
The parfaits are super simple to assemble – just a layer of peach yogurt, chunked pineapple, yogurt, puffin cereal, yogurt, and then a little bit of toasted coconut to top it off. If you’ve never toasted coconut before, just add a sprinkling to a dry skillet and cook over medium heat until golden.
Hope your kids love this the themed Snappsy’s ‘P’ Parfaits as much as mine do!
