Sweet tooth? Try this healthy summer treat!
I am ALWAYS looking for ways to put a healthy spin on desserts. With the weather as hot as its been, exploring frozen options is the way to go! I stumbled upon this recipe and thought it looked like it was worth a shot — super glad I did!
This was literally the easiest dessert to make. If you’ve got a little kitchen helper like I do, its a great activity for you to do together. In 5 simple steps, you’ll have a delicious, healthy dessert that can cool you down.
I used a brownie pan, but you can use whatever is in your cupboards. Make sure to line it with wax paper so the yogurt doesn’t stick to the pan once frozen.
Cut The Fruit
While I don’t advise letting your little one do much assistance in this stage, they can totally enjoy sneaking in a few slices of fruit 🙂
I used fresh strawberries, kiwis, mangoes, blueberries and raspberries. You can use whatever your favorite fruits are! Just cut them in to small, bite size pieces.
Spread The Yogurt
Here’s where your little helper can start to take charge. Pour the large container of yogurt (we used vanilla flavored) onto the wax paper and hand over the spatula. It was fun for her to make designs in the yogurt while she was spreading it evenly across the paper. Just make sure there’s a thin, fairly consistent layer of yogurt before placing the fruit in.
Add The Fruit
Now its time to add all that delicious fruit you just cut up. No real tricks here, just add as much fruit as you would like… most recipes say two cups – I’m not that precise 🙂 I just let Harleigh toss in whatever fruit she wanted where. I think she ate more than she added, but we had more than enough fruit ready. I’d say she did a pretty A+ job here!
Place in the freezer for about 3-4 hours, or until completely frozen. We left it in overnight and it was delicious the next day!
That’s seriously it… super easy, delicious recipe for a healthy summer dessert. Plus, she loves it even more that she was the one who made it 🙂
