Frozen Berry Granola Squares

yogurt squareThis is a modified version of a dessert from Clean Eating Magazine (www.cleaneatingmag.com).  I make it GF and dairy free by replacing the granola, yogurt and vanilla with appropriate ingredients.  My kids really love this and it is VERY easy to make. 

Ingredients:
1 cup GF granola
2 cups fresh berries (strawberries, raspberries, etc…)
3 cups plain yogurt (use plain coconut milk yogurt or soy yogurt if needed)
1/3 cup agave nectar
1 teaspoon GF vanilla extrat

Line an 8″ square baking pan with foil.  Sprinkle granola evenly on bottom of pan and set aside. 

In a blender, mix together berries, yogurt, agave and vanilla until blended.  Pour mixture over granola, smooting mixture to edges of pan.  Cover with foil and freeze until firm, approximately 4 hours.  Keep frozen until serving. 

To make life easier, cut the into squares before the mixture totally freezes or allow to slightly thaw before cutting into squares.
