Close-up Granola Cups TipHero

Tell us something: how do YOU usually eat your yogurt? It might sound silly, but think about it. For most of us, it’s usually just in a small bowl or straight out of a plastic container, and the most we do to change it up is maybe top it with some granola or fresh fruit. Don’t you think there should be a better way to eat this healthy treat? We did, and so we found something we’re sure you’re going to love: granola cups! These edible little dishes are totally easy to make, and a fantastic way to take your yogurt to the next level. Just watch.
