Frozen Yogurt Covered Berry Bites

Summer is heating up which means that frozen treats are in high demand from most kids at the Club. Instead of reaching for a sugary Popsicle or frozen ice pop with little nutritional value, check out these frozen fruit and yogurt treats as a healthy alternative for your T.R.A.I.L. participants! They are also a great way to get participants involved in making healthy snacks and reading nutrition labels.

Materials:
  • Toothpick
  • Parchment paper
  • Baking sheet
  • Snack size Ziploc bags
Ingredients:
  • 1 carton of berries (blueberries, strawberries, blackberries, or raspberries)
  • 2 cups low-fat or non-fat Greek vanilla yogurt
Directions:
  1. Gather your materials and ingredients. Feel free to improvise on the materials that you will be using. For example, if you do not have a toothpick then use a fork to dip the berries into the Greek yogurt.
  2. Cover the baking sheet with parchment paper. Set aside.
  3. Wash berries with water. Let them air dry before dipping in yogurt.
  4. Use a toothpick to dip each berry into yogurt. Swirl the berry in the yogurt until the berry is coated.
  5. Place the yogurt covered berry onto the parchment paper while taking the toothpick out of the berry.
  6. Repeat steps 1-5 until all berries have been covered.
  7. Place the cooking sheet of yogurt covered berries in the freezer. Freeze for at least one hour. After the berries have been frozen, they can then be placed into snack size Ziploc bags for individual usage.
  8. Enjoy! Note that the recipe can be modified depending on the number of kids you are serving. You may need to double the recipe or cut it in half. Find out what works best for your group.
