FROZEN YOGURT BITES
I’ve been on a real frozen yogurt kick these days!
It reminds me of the Yogen Fruz I used to love as a kid meandering through the mall with my friends. They used to have a variety of frozen fruits and other sweet things to swirl in with the frozen yogurt. Are those still around?
Anyways, I thought I’d make an almond version of frozen yogurt and make it into bite-sized little pieces for easy snacking.
If there’s one thing I love, it’s snacking.
Oops! Sorry, Lou! I love you just as much as snacking. 😉 *edit update* Saying Good-bye to our boy.
INGREDIENTS YOU NEED TO MAKE YOGURT MELTS
These yogurt melts have a pretty simple ingredient list which is something I love! All you need is:
- Greek yogurt
- almond butter (use natural – just almonds)
- maple syrup
- sea salt
HOW TO MAKE FROZEN YOGURT BITES
Prepping for these tasty little treats is pretty darn simple. Basically, toss all the ingredients into a bowl and give it a good stir.
Next, prepare a baking sheet by lining it with parchment paper.
My good intentions were to pipe beautiful little rosettes onto the parchment with my piping bag, but … there’s always a but, isn’t there … a darned little piece of almond from the almond butter blocked the tip of the piping bag and my mixture wouldn’t come out.
Well, it did start coming out but from the wrong end!! I tried to unblock the tip with a toothpick but to no avail. My next course of action was to remove said tip and put on a different one (wait for it…I sense another but) but, when I removed the blocked tip the yogurt mixture started to ooze out all over the counter.
That’s when I started swearing.
In the end, I emptied the piping bag back into the food processor and abandoned all hope of picture perfect rosettes and simply spooned little bite-sized pieces onto the parchment instead. This works fine! You could also use a big Ziploc bag and cut the tip off to pipe.
OR … You could use a silicone candy mold which is what I did the next time I made this recipe! The molds work great and the yogurt pops out nicely. You would need quite a lot of them so maybe just stick to the spooning onto the parchment method.
Off they go into the freezer for a good 30 minutes or so.
You want to make sure they are frozen solid.
Peel them off the parchment and transfer them to a Ziploc bag.
Pop them back into the freezer and whenever you feel the snack monster hit, pop one in your mouth! If you used the silicone molds, pop them out of the molds and transfer to a Ziploc and store the same way.
These are very good and I can see endless variations using berries, chocolate, bananas, etc., etc.
Have fun experimenting!

Summertime is perfect for this healthy, no-bake recipe for how to make Frozen Yogurt Bites. These frosty Greek yogurt bites are a simple diy treat you can even do with kids. So creamy and an easy way to enjoy frozen yogurt at home!
Add all ingredients to a medium mixing bowl and stir together well.
Prepare a baking sheet with parchment paper and spoon bite-sized drops onto it. There should be room for ten rows of seven. You can also try a piping bag or Ziploc bag with the end snipped off also to make yogurt dots.
Transfer the baking sheet to the freeze and freeze for 30 minutes until set. Transfer the pieces to a Ziploc bag for storing. Keep these in the freezer for up to a week.
TIP! If you want to use silicone candy molds those work well also! You may need a little longer in the freezer for them to set.
