Fruit Filled Yogurt Bites

Fruit Filled Yogurt BitesYogurt bites seem to be a new trendy dessert.  Well at least in our house.

On weekends, we make a gallon of homemade yogurt to get us through the week.  And we use it in quite a few things, even our Ninja smoothies.

The Yogurt Bites have 2 ingredients and 3 simple steps. COMBINE. STIR. FREEZE!   Choose plain, vanilla or flavored yogurt then your fruit of choice.

If you make it in a silicone pan, there’s a trick to cutting it into little square bite-size pieces (I learned the hard way), let them sit at room temperature for 10-15 minutes.  If you don’t let it sit, it’ll be like trying to dice an ice cube… not much fun.  Better yet, use a mini silicone ice cube tray to avoid cutting all together.

OK, let’s get started. Here’s a list of supplies you’ll need:
