Spring is here!! So what if it’s snowing? I’m still in the mood for warm weather treats. And these yummy frozen Greek yogurt bars hit the spot – simple, tasty, healthy, and refreshing. Kid-friendly, too!
Last month I promised to share a series of healthy recipes this year. (Remember the skinny bean dip?) I’m keeping my promise and thinking up more easy treats for you. (You’re welcome!) This recipe satisfies the sweet tooth and is almost as good as ice cream. Plus, it’s kind of fun to make. gasp
You can even be creative and ignore the need to be healthy and do something wild like add chocolate or Nutella to these frozen bars. Hungry yet? Okay, let’s get started. —>
You’ll need the following to whip together these frozen treats:
Vanilla Greek yogurt
Fresh frozen mixed berries (the no sugar added kind…just grab your favorite bag from the frozen food aisle at your grocery store)
I’m leaving out amounts because there’s really no need to measure for this recipe. But if working with numbers makes you feel more comfortable, I’d say to start with a couple cups of yogurt and a couple cups of frozen berries. And you’ll only need one or two tablespoons of honey.
First, put the frozen mixed berries in a blender.
Blend until the berries are smooth like a smoothie, adding water as needed to thin it out.
Squirt in a little honey and blend it in. If you like sweet, add more honey. If you don’t have a sweet tooth, feel free to leave out the honey completely.
Set aside the berry smoothie mixture. Next, grab a baking sheet and line it with wax paper or parchment paper.
Spread Greek yogurt over the parchment or wax paper. Try to keep it pretty thin, like less than a 1/4 inch. But no need to get out a ruler, just spread the yogurt out until it looks thin enough for you.
Then take the berry smoothie mixture and drizzle it over the yogurt, adding as much or as little as you’d like. Swirl the berry mixture into the yogurt with a spoon.
Pretty, right? Pop that tray in the freezer and let it go until it’s frozen. BOOM. You’re done.
After they’re frozen, you just break it up into pieces and eat them. I might be stating the obvious here, but just make sure you store any remaining pieces in the freezer.
Owen loves eating these. So does Mommy. It’s a win-win.
