Frozen Yogurt Bites

Get ready for the warmer weather! Frozen Yogurt Bites are definitely a healthy snack for kids of all ages. Everyone from young to old seem to love them. Bite size, cool and refreshing , they take only minutes to make and less than half our to freeze.

The recipe (with variations) is all over Pinterest, but I first saw it on a blog carnival from The Misadventures of a Born Again Farm Girl .  Many of the blog posts say that toddlers and young kids adore them, and so do their mothers because their kids can eat yogurt without making a big mess.

Freeze for 25 minutes on parchment. Remove and enjoy or freeze in baggies for later
                                                            
Personally, I find them flavorful and an easy gluten free snack. You get the benefits of yogurt in a tasty little treat. What could be bad?

They are so simple to make and you can keep all different flavors in your freezer.

They are versatile because you can add fruit, peanut butter, or just about any ingredient of your choice; Make sure to mix well before freezing on the parchment paper.
I made some with peach yogurt; others I made with a berry on top, and I used different flavored yogurts;  In addition, I sliced a banana , dipped it into some yogurt and then froze it on the parchment paper. The banana slices dipped in yogurt were my favorite.

Actually the yogurt bites were fun to make, and they are SO simple, it would be a good project to make with little ones.You can experiment with all colors and flavored yogurts an berries!

Prep: 5 minutes
Freeze Time: 25-30 minutes

The basic recipe: 
1 individual container of ( GF) yogurt, mixed : I used organic
1 sandwich  baggy
cookie sheet
parchment paper

Directions: 
Cover a cookie sheet with parchment paper
Pour the yogurt into the baggy and seal. Using a scissor, snip one end on a diagonal , making a small snip.
Squeeze bitesize dabs of yogurt onto the parchement paper. Freeze for 20-30 minutes.
Remove yogurt bites from parchment paper and store in baggies in the freezer.
They are ready whenever you want them. Will stay in freezer for two weeks.
( I liked them better made with regular yogurt, not Greek yogurt- but both works)
