Do you ever feel like you’ve run out of good ideas for after school snacks? I don’t like to fill my kids up on carbs, but sometimes the easiest thing to do is to pour a pile of pretzels into a bowl and let them munch away. That’s okay from time to time, but lately, I’ve been trying more creative ideas for snacks that are healthier AND taste good.
These frozen yogurt bites have been the winner, hands down, at my house AND they are SOOOO easy to make.
Here’s what you’ll need:
a mini-muffin tin
fat-free vanilla yogurt (preferably Greek yogurt for the extra protein)
fruit of your choice (fresh or frozen)
First, line the muffin tin with the paper liners. Then, fill the bottom of the liners (about a quarter of the way up) with granola. Any kind of granola will do, so use your favorite.
Next, fill in the rest of the liner with yogurt. I used vanilla, but you can try any flavor. I think I’m going to try key lime next with strawberries on top.
Finally, add your favorite fruit on top. We chose raspberries, and I’m even thinking that next time, we’ll add a few dark chocolate shavings. Mmmm…
Pop the muffin pan into the freezer for at least 2 hours before you eat. them. all.
Yogurt bites are perfect for little hands! All they have to do is pop the paper liner out of the pan and peel it off to enjoy a tasty AND healthy after school treat.
(Note to moms everywhere: Don’t eat them all before your kids get home from school.)
