Frozen Yogurt Bites Recipe

- 1 cup plain yogurt (can also use flavored yogurt – we really like vanilla)
- 1/4 cup blueberries, raspberries, or blackberries (other variations – grapes or bananas. We like to cut the grapes in half and cut the bananas into chunks).
- Baking sheet
- Parchment paper
- Piping bag or Ziploc bag
Line a baking tray with parchment paper. Spoon yogurt into a piping bag or Ziploc bag.
Pipe small dots of yogurt onto the prepared tray.
Place a berry on top of each yogurt dot. Freeze overnight. In a hurry? We have had these freeze up well after only 15 minutes! It depends on how large a dot of yogurt and how large a piece of fruit you use.
When you are ready to serve, eat immediately.
How do you store these treats?
Obviously, it’s not convenient to keep a baking sheet in your freezer especially if you’re going to make a big batch of these to keep on hand. However, they don’t really stack well. So, I found a rectangular container to hold them.
I place parchment paper in the bottom of it, put the yogurt bites on top, and then place another sheet of parchment paper over them. Carefully place a second layer of yogurt treats on top and cover with more parchment paper and then the lid.
I keep the container flat (not on its side or anything like that) and they hold together well. Be sure that they are thoroughly frozen before transferring them from the baking pan to the container.
What kinds of fruits work well for these frozen bites?
I have tried them with blueberries, blackberries, raspberries, grapes (cut in half), and bananas (cut in chunks). Since I’m allergic to strawberries, I haven’t tried those but they would be too large as is to use. Cut them into chunks and they should work just fine.
Ones that I have yet to try but think would work well for this recipe: cherries (cut in half), papaya (chunks), and mango (chunks).
I know that they sell other frozen fruits at the store – watermelon, kiwi fruit, and pineapple come to mind. I don’t care for those once frozen, unless I’m using them in a smoothie. You could certainly give them a try, but I’d only make a few to test them out first.
Can you use frozen instead of fresh fruit in this recipe?
I wouldn’t. If you kept the frozen fruit really cold and worked quickly so it didn’t have time to thaw, it should be safe. But if the fruit has thawed and then you refreeze it, you are taking a chance of bacteria forming.
In addition, I’d be concerned about the taste when using frozen fruit. It might not taste as fresh and flavorful.
Do you have to use plain yogurt?
Not at all. You can use any flavor you want, but bear in mind that I haven’t tested this with multiple different kinds of yogurt. It’s possible they might have ingredients that would interfere with the freezing process.
I have used vanilla yogurt with this recipe and it’s really good! It freezes well and the flavor of it with the fruit is delicious.
