Frozen Yogurt Treats. An all time summer favorite in my house, they’re a light snack that can be personalized to include any flavors or fruits you want, in all shapes imaginable.
Plus, they’re easy to make, wonderfully cold, healthier than ice-cream and full of fruity flavors!
What’s there not to like?
Just as with Trail Mix, Frozen Yogurt Treats is one of those things that involves no cooking and can barely be considered a “recipe”. You just need yogurt, fruit, molds (I strongly suggest silicone, though I use some plastic ones as well), and a freezer.
From there you can make them in any shape, flavor, or form. These are the most popular versions in my house:
Made with strawberry low-fat yogurt, strawberry skyr (Icelandic yogurt), and banana-strawberry soy yogurt, they include blueberries, raspberries, strawberries, cherries and cranberries (basically, all the berries!).
But you can use any type of yogurt and all fruits that freeze well.
This is the deliciously frozen end result:
Frozen Yogurt Treats (With Fruit)
The perfect sweet frozen snack for warm summer days.
Pick your yogurt; low-fat, skyr (Icelandic yogurt), and soy yogurt can all be used.
They all work well, but the soy has the best frozen consistency.
Divide yogurt through freezable molds (ice cube, cupcake, cake pop, candy).
Add fresh or frozen fruit.
Place in freezer until frozen solid.
Once frozen, the yogurt treats can be unmolded and kept in containers or plastic bags in the freezer.
It’ll take a couple of hours for them to fully freeze, but after that, you’re free to eat them or relocate them to a container or bag.
Once they’re out of the freezer, though, you gotta eat them fast. Just like ice-cream, these bad boys melt fast on a hot summer day.
Which means you’ll have to eat them faster. Sad. *wink*
Individual Final Results
Made with the bottom of cake pop molds. Definitely recommend, since the frozen yogurt treats turn out perfectly bite sized and are easy to unmold.
These were made with silicone cupcake cups. Just as easy to remove from the molds, able to take bigger fruit, but a bigger portion overall.
The traditional ice cube molds. They’re a great size, but since I still use plastic molds, they’re terrible to remove. I’ll take the cake pops any day of the week!
The clear winners, my favorites, the lollipop silicone molds.
These would win for aesthetics alone because look at how gosh darned pretty they are, but they’re also the perfect portion; bigger than the cake pops and ice cubes, smaller than the cupcakes. It’s a two bite deal that you can easily eat before melting, but is big enough you won’t have to go back for seconds.
