Frozen Yogurt Berry Bites

Shares

Here’s a super fun kid snack for the summer time. And it requires no special equipment like ice cream makers or popsicle molds. I made these when I had an overabundance of Greek yogurt that was approaching its due date. The kids loved the fact that there was a berry inside of each cube. You don’t have to add the chocolate coating, they are pretty great just as a yogurt snack. But chocolate turns it into dessert!

Frozen Yogurt Berry Bites

Ingredients

  • 1 3/4 cups full fat Greek yogurt
  • Sweetener equivalent to 1/3 cup sugar
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 16 fresh raspberries (or more, if your ice cube trays are smaller)
  • 5 ounces sugar-free dark chocolate, chopped
  • 1 tbsp butter

Instructions

  1. In a large bowl, whisk together the yogurt, sweetener, and vanilla until well combined. Spoon mixture into cavities of one or two ice cube trays, filling each about 3/4 full. Note: not all ice cube trays are the same size…I got 16 good-sized berry bites out of mine.
  2. Press one berry into the center of each and top with a little more yogurt. Freeze until completely solid, about 4 hours.
  3. Run the bottom of the tray under hot water briefly to un-mold bites. Turn out onto a waxed paper lined platter or baking sheet and return to freezer.
  4. In a heatproof bowl set over a pan of barely simmering water melt chocolate with butter, stirring until smooth. Working with one frozen cube at a time, dip into melted chocolate and set on waxed paper. (I found it easiest to stick a toothpick into the bottom of each cube and dip into the chocolate to coat the sides and the top. Then I placed up upright so that the uncoated parted was on the waxed paper.)
  5. Alternatively, you can simply drizzle a little chocolate over each frozen cube.
  6. Return to freezer until ready to eat.
