Cool off with this healthy, refreshing treat your kids will love to make AND enjoy!
Confession: I really don’t like cooking with my kids. It pains me. I know, I know, I’m a terrible person.
But they are just so messy. Every time we bake together it ends up in a disaster zone in the kitchen and lots of tears. And the kids get a little upset, too.
That’s why I love this recipe. It’s easy and doesn’t cause a huge, disastrous mess. There will be no cracked eggs on your floor or flour flying through the air and coating your clean dishes on the drying mat. I promise.
All you need are berries, some yogurt, a baking sheet, and a piece of wax paper.
Line the baking sheet with the wax paper and set it aside.
Put your berries in a bowl. Using a toothpick, dip them in the yogurt, swirling around until they are full covered. Place yogurt-covered berry on the lined baking sheet. Repeat.
BOOM. That’s it. Easy, right?
I think this recipe is fabulous as a Memorial Day treat or Fourth of July…it’s very festive with the red, white, and blue!
There are some variations to the frozen yogurt-dipped berries recipe…
You can use whatever berries you want. I used blueberries the first time and a combo of blueberries and strawberries the second time.
I cut the strawberries to make them bite-sized, but if you want them bigger, like a chocolate-covered strawberry then just leave them big.

You can use any yogurt you want. I bought Stonyfield organic whole milk plain yogurt, because it has the least amount of added sugar that I could find.
I thought of dipping the yogurt-covered berries in sprinkles before freezing them, too. Maybe next time.
Once the berries are frozen, you can serve them as-is in a bowl or add them to a slice of delicious pound cake.
As long as you store them in an air-tight container in the freezer, they should last for several weeks at least.
