Healthy Summer Snack for Kids

School is out for the summer! Whether you’re looking for a fun food craft for the kids or a healthy sweet treat for you or the family, this is the blog post for you! As a Registered Dietitian and self-proclaimed foodie, I love looking online for healthy recipes. Pinterest, I have to be honest, is one of my go-tos for creative and simple recipes. This recipe is one I originally found on Pinterest and started making in college because it was fun, simple, healthy, and super affordable. Doesn’t get better than that! It’s also really easy for kids to make. If you don’t have silicon muffin tins, I found it’s also easy to place wax paper down on a cookie sheet. Then smear the yogurt into a thick layer. Sprinkle toppings on top and freeze. Once frozen, break apart for yogurt bark!

YOGURT BITES

Yield -12 servings

Freeze Time -4 hours

INGREDIENTS

  • 1 cup yogurt (I like Siggi’s or Chobani Greek yogurt for extra protein)
  • 1/4 cup fresh strawberries
  • sliced 1/4 cup fresh blueberries
  • 1/4 cup unsweetened coconut

DIRECTIONS

1. On a baking sheet, lay out 12 silicon muffin cups. Dollop yogurt into each cup, until all the yogurt is gone. (No need to fill each cup up completely. A thinner layer in each muffin tin makes the frozen bites easier for little ones to munch on without hurting their teeth.)

2. Place fruit toppings into each cup, pressing them down into the yogurt with the tip of your finger. Place the cups into the freezer, and freeze overnight, or until the yogurt is set.

3. Once frozen, remove from the cases and serve, or place in an air-tight plastic bag and store in the freezer for up to 2 weeks.

Lemon yogurt with blueberries and raspberries is my favorite yogurt-bite! I also love strawberry yogurt with coconut and kiwi slices, tastes like I’m somewhere tropical.  What’s your favorite recipe you made? Can’t wait to hear different ideas!
