Frozen Fruity Greek Yogurt Cups

When the heat strikes, you gotta have something frozen and refreshing to cool you off.  Something out of the norm is even better.  My kids have always loved their squeeze yogurts frozen, so I thought I would try something a little different.  Different can be fun. :smile:   These Frozen Fruity Greek Yogurt Cups are just that.  They’re vanilla bean Greek yogurt mixed with fresh blueberries and strawberries, frozen into festive foil liners.  If that’s not a fun way to eat yogurt, I don’t know what is.  Don’t think these are just for kids.  I eat them, too.  :wink:

The inspiration for these came from all of the frozen squeeze yogurts that are in my freezer right now.  The kids have stopped eating them because frankly, I think they’re bored with them. They’re onto bigger and better things….like my Chobani and FAGE yogurts.  I don’t blame them, really.  Greek yogurt is tasty, and one of my favorite things ever.  I had (4) 6 ounce containers of FAGE’s Fruyo vanilla bean yogurt, which I love, love love.  :tounge: Neither FAGE nor Chobani have compensated me to mention them here.  I wish! :lol:   I emptied all four containers of yogurt into a bowl, mixed in some fresh blueberries and chopped strawberries, and was ready to freeze the concoction.

My dilemma was whether to make them into bars or individual muffin cups.  It really wasn’t much of a dilemma, really.  I mean, individual is the clean, easy way to serve these frozen treats, and I have two boys.  Bars sounded SO messy.  I really needn’t say anymore.  I placed the foil liners in my muffin pan, covered it with plastic wrap, and left for my boys’ baseball game.  When we came home, we had a nice, cold treat.  Just set them out for a bit to soften, give the kids napkins, and let them go to town.  It was a good call not making these into bars, because my kids were completely destroyed eating them in cup form, too. Turns out it didn’t really matter after all.  Boys will be boys.  :wink:

This makes me so happy. I’ve been craving ice cream practically every night and I’ve been thinking about freezing some greek yogurt to satisfy the cravings. Now I know it works!

I’m the same way with ice cream. This truly helps! I like it best when it softens quite a bit, but my kids love them nice and icy. Thanks, Jaclyn!

This looks so delish! I honestly think the only time my lactose-intolerence really makes me sad is when I see delicious recipes with greek yogurt. it’s all the rage! Do you think this would work with a soy yogurt or lactose-free?

The best part about the cups is you can try just making one or two and see how it comes out. I’d say it’s definitely worth a shot!
