The most delicious, AND healthy, summer treat we make – Frozen Yogurt Melts. This post was from last summer, but I had to share it again. You MUST make these with your little ones! Here is the original post:
We are enjoying the warm weather that has finally come our way. Enjoying it both by playing outside, and by eating all the yummy cold treats that come with the season: ice cream, popsicles, freezies, all the good stuff. But, on my quest to keep my family healthy and eating as naturally as possible, we decided to experiment with some healthier frozen treats. This frozen yogurt melts recipe is SO YUMMY. By far the yummiest thing that has come out of our freezer all season.
**Update: We also made these this winter – freezing them outside in the snow … even more fun! You can read about our snow-frozen yogurt melts here**
Madeline loves to stick a popsicle stick into a yogurt container and put it in the freezer. The boys like this too – but it is very (excessively) messy. We are talking bath-tub required messy. Though a healthier alternate to freezies … which led me to believe there had to be a better way. And there is! Here is our Frozen Yogurt Melts Recipe!
To make these so-yummy-you-won’t-believe-it-or-even-crave-ice-cream treats, simply:
Cut berries up tiny, we used strawberries and blueberries.
Pop them in a bowl and add in yogurt.
Stir and spoon onto a lightly buttered cookie sheet. (edit: you could use parchment paper if you prefer)
Pop in the freezer for a few hours, and there you have it!
Truthfully the first few batches we ate straight up off the cookie sheet. But they are also yummy in a bowl with a spoon – a much less messy alternative to the big yogurt on a stick concoction that floats its way around our house (until Mama kicks it outside).
These bites are so creamy and with just the right amount of sweet. A lovely snack for a summers afternoon – or morning – or evening…
Truthful Edit: You will still crave ice cream. But these are really good.
