Throughout the summer we’ll be sharing with you some of our favorite summer treats, nutrition tips and other great recipes. We can’t let the summer pass by without sharing one of our favorite cool treats – children love them! Try preparing some of these frozen yogurt covered berries and have them in your freezer and on hand whenever your kids come from inside looking for something a little cool and refreshing.
- 2 cups of berries (strawberries, blueberries, raspberries, blackberries)
- 5 cups of yogurt (plain, vanilla or flavored)
Line baking sheet with parchment paper. Stick a toothpick into a berry to pick it up, and dip it into the yogurt. Use another toothpick to place the yogurt-covered berry onto the baking sheet. Repeat until all berries are covered, leaving space between each on the sheet. Freeze until solid, at least 1 hour. Keep frozen in resealable bags or plastic/glass containers until you serve.
