What You’ll Need

3 Driscoll’s strawberries
6 Driscoll’s raspberries
2 Driscoll’s blueberries
2 banana slices
1 bowl of yogurt

How To Make It

1. Fill a bowl with yogurt – flavor of your choice. My kids love vanilla Greek yogurt.

2. Slice 1 of your Driscoll’s strawberries in half and place both halves at the top of your yogurt bowl to make the owl’s ears.

3. Place 2 banana slices right underneath the strawberry ears. Place 2 Driscoll’s blueberries on top of the banana slices to make eyes.

4. Take your second Driscoll’s strawberry and slice it in half. Cut just the bottom triangle off one of the halves and place this small triangle underneath the eyes to make a beak.

5. Grab your 6 Driscoll’s raspberries and layer them in rows (3, 2, 1) underneath the strawberry beak.

6. Finally, slice your last Driscoll’s strawberry in half and place these halves on the side of the yogurt bowl for wings.
