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. 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. 😉
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! 😆 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. 😉
- (4) 6 ounce containers FAGE Fruyo vanilla bean yogurt (or your favorite)
- ½ cup fresh blueberries
- ½ cup chopped, fresh strawberries, plus sliced strawberries for the top
- Place (10) foil liners in a standard muffin pan. Place the yogurt and fruit in a medium bowl, and stir gently to combine. Scoop the yogurt mixture into the foil liners and spread evenly. Place a strawberry slice on the top of each. Cover with plastic wrap and freeze for at least one hour or until frozen. Let stand at room temperature just before serving. Enjoy!
Store leftover cups in an airtight container in the freezer.
