FroYo Bites Recipe

Fruity FroYo Bites deliver the goodness of yogurt and fresh fruit in a fun way, without added sugars.

We love yogurt! It’s filled with protein, calcium, and probiotics for healthy digestion. But commercially-available fruit-flavored yogurts are usually too heavy on added sugars for my liking. And I don’t know about your kids, but mine sometimes shy away from chunks of fruit in store-bought yogurts. (Kids. I know.)

So we invented these fun and frosty FroYo Bites for a fruity yogurt that’s much lower in sugar, and delicious to everyone–even those kids with texture issues.

Making these frozen treats is super easy. We blended plain Greek yogurt with two types of berries (strawberries, then blueberres) and poured the flavored mixtures into ice cube trays. (We used these trays, for perfectly square treats.) Then we froze them for a couple of hours, and they were ready to eat!

Here’s a tip: don’t freeze them all day long, or they’ll be too solid to bite through. For soft and creamy Froyo Bites, two-three hours is perfect. If they DO freeze all the way through, just let them rest out of the freezer for a few minutes before serving. They’ll soften right up.

We love eating these just like they are, but they’re also yummy dipped in toppings. We put a toothpick through the middle, then tried ours in homemade granola, wheat germ and flax seeds. Wheat germ was actually our favorite! We didn’t get to try crushed almonds, but I bet they would be delicious, too.

Any way you serve them, these make a fun and healthy frozen treat on a hot day. And, they’re so easy to make that you can make a big batch and then have them as a fast snack, anytime.

    I love this idea! I think our “dollar” store has mini ice cube trays! The kids love yogurt here too. It would be fun to freeze some for warm days this summer (as an alternative to ice cream). Thanks for sharing!

    How awesome, I know my son would love these! I make a similar frozen treat, as a lollipop – I got it off of Australia’s taste.com website. They are delicious!http://www.taste.com.au/recipes/3378/frozen+yoghurt+lollipops

    Natalie says:

    Jessy – Ikea sells silicone ice cube trays that are different shapes which would be fun. Thanks for sharing Kristen – those look good too!

    Lindsy says:

    I LOVE this idea. My kids are going to love these for a snack! Thanks so much!

    Never thought about doing this thanks for the idea, awesome post by the way. I too don’t like the texture with the fruits in them, I just don’t get it.

    Kellee Bryan says:

    Oh my goodness, my kiddo hates yogurt with chunks of fruit too! I never thought to freeze it. Great tip!

    This is a great idea… so cute! We love frozen yogurt at our house too.

    carol says:

    Could you throw the yogurt in a blender?

    melissa says:

    You could also put it in a plastic bag, cut a hole in the corner and squeeze it into the holes that way.

    Amanda says:

    You could also use a zip lock bag just cutting one of the corners off 🙂

    Raquel says:

    where did you find the ice tray?

    kayla says:

    u could use chocolate to top it

    Tiffany says:

    My son loves yogurt too and I’ve been trying to find different ways to dress it up! Perfect! We would love them plain as well!

    Cheryl Fahl says:

    Can we use blueberries? Will it be too watery? Thx.

    Amy says:

    Blueberries would work great @cheryl

    Cheryl Fahl says:

    Thx!!!!

    holly says:

    Can you use something other than plain yogurt?

    April says:

    Those look yummy! I too despise yogurt with fruit, yet enjoy both separately. I can add fresh fruit to yogurt and enjoy it like that; it’s when the fruit comes in it already that it’s nasty. My family laughs at me because I call it booger fruit! It truly is just like boogers.

    Cassi says:

    Anyone have luck with almond or coconut yogurt? My LO can do dairy or soy but is getting the molars in so I think they’d be great!!

    I was also thinking that you might be able to use the silicone baby food freezer trays and just fill them half way up as a means of reusing them once you don’t need puréed baby food any longer…

    Amy says:

    Yes, I’ve done it with coconut yogurt and it turns out great!

    Amy says:

    Of course Holly- flavored yogurt is fine too- just look for brands with real fruit in it.

    mary says:

    How many serving does this make

    Natalie Monson says:

    It makes 10-12 cubes of each flavor, depending on how big your ice cube tray or the mold you use is.

    Desiree says:

    Could you use frozen fruit?

    Natalie Monson says:

    Yes. You can definitely use frozen fruit – if it is too thick just add a little bit more yogurt or milk to thin it out.

    Kelly says:

    How long do they last when taken out of the freezer or do you have to eat them straight out of the freezer?
