Well, summer break is over. I officially have a kindergartner, and I’m an emotional mess. We have been trying to squeeze in as many summer activities as we can over the past week. Thank goodness for staggered days for Kindergarten! Since we are trying our very best to hold on to summer for as long as possible, I decided to create an afternoon snack that is perfect for these hot summer days. But since we have basically eaten enough sugar and junk to induce sugar comas over the last few weeks, I decided this snack needed to be sneakily healthy. My kids LOVE Froyoz and Menchies so I made Fruit Filled Froyo Bites!
These froyo bites are free from refined sugar, easy to make, and the kids love them! They are also super customizable because you can use any fruit you want, and you can even make them any size you want. This is the ice cube tray I use.
Fruit Filled Froyo Bites
This recipe is so easy to whip up, and the froyo bites keep well in the freezer. All you need is Greek yogurt (PROTEIN!), fruit, honey/maple syrup, and an ice cube tray.
Place the yogurt and sweetener of choice in a bowl and mix well. If needed, chop your fruit into small pieces (blueberry or grape size). Mix the fruit into the yogurt mixture until fully covered.
Using a spoon, place one or two pieces of yogurt covered fruit (depends on the size of your fruit and/or ice cube tray) into each section of the ice cube tray. Using the leftover yogurt mixture, fill in each section with more yogurt until fruit is covered.
Place the ice cube tray in the freezer for at least 2-4 hours or until frozen.
You will want to keep them stored in the freezer so they retain their shape.
That is it, y’all. An easy, healthy, and refreshing snack for the kiddos (and you!).
