Yogurt Bite Ingredients
Because these are so simple, and require only two ingredients, they are a fantastic kid friendly recipe! To this day, my teenage son will whip up a batch all on his own! Here are the ingredients you need to get started:
- Yogurt: You can use a plain Greek yogurt for a healthier option that gives you control of the sweeteners added (optional) or you can opt for flavored yogurts to match your choice of fruit. Whichever you decide to use, I suggest sticking with Greek for a better finished texture.
- Fruit: Fresh in season fruit is AMAZING and so tasty, but you can also use slightly thawed fruit too! Pick whichever is convenient for you and your family. OR opt for baby food! It makes this recipe even quicker.
- Sweetener: Now, I said this is a two ingredient recipe and I mean that. However, if your fruit is tart or out of season you might need to help sweeten it up. A bit of honey or sugar is helpful to get that delicious flavor profile.
Note: If you plan to use honey, make sure you double check with your pediatrician before giving to children under the age of 1.
How to Make Frozen Yogurt Bites
- PREP: Start by lining one or two baking trays with parchment paper, or a silicone baking mat, and set aside for later.
- BLEND: If using fresh/slightly thawed frozen fruit, place in a blender or food processor and pulse until smooth.
- MIX: Place the fruit and yogurt in a small mixing bowl. Add sweetener if desired. Stir until the mixture is fully combined.
- PIPE: Spoon the mixture into a quart sized zip top bag. Gently snip one corner of the bag and begin to pipe small bite sized circles onto the prepared trays.
- FREEZE: Continue until all of the yogurt has been used. Place the trays in the freezer and allow to freeze until solid, about 1 to 2 hours.
- ENJOY: Remove the frozen bite sized pieces from the tray and place in a freezer safe container. Store inside the freezer until you are ready to eat.
- Cookie Sheet : Cookie Sheets (affiliate) are so helpful when making something this simple. You want to make sure you have a solid surface when sticking these yogurt drops into the freezer.
- Parchment Paper : Parchment Paper (affiliate) will make these yogurt drops so easy to take off of your cookie sheet when done freezing!
- Ziplock Bags : Ziplock Bags (affiliate) are key to this recipe, they are so easy to fill and even more perfect for when cleaning up!
Almost. Fruits like lemons, limes, kiwi and watermelon contain more water. These fruits make it difficult to pipe without drifting across the dray.
For this recipe, you want the mixture to be less liquid filled and slightly thicker like a classic yogurt. Enough stability for the drops not to run across the tray when you pipe it.
These will last up to two months if stored properly. Keep in an airtight container or freezer safe zip top bag with all of the air removed.

Comments & Reviews
Ive really enjoyed your recipes and camping tips. Although I have a pull behind camper on a permanent site with all the amenities, ( come on girls, I am getting too lazy for that sleeping on the ground stuff:)), I still enjoy watching the kids and their excitement when they arrive. They are allowed free range at the campground where I am located, and they are like birds out of their cages. All smiles and whistles, and games in the spirit of healthy outdoor play. Such a joy to think about. Brought a smile to me on a cold dreary day. Only 40 more days till campground opens for the season. Yippee!
Made these with strawberry yogurt! They were gone with five minutes of being out of the freezer! I made 3 batches in one day! The third bath I made them in simple shapes like stars and hearts those were fun to eat! Love them and very goooooooood!!
This is such a great Idea! I found it off of Pintrest, but I was wondering how long to they stay solid once you pull them out to eat them? I don’t want to end up pulling to many out and have a big mess on my hands 🙂 Thanks!
Not long. On a hot day, you’ll be lucky if they last 15 minutes. I’d treat them like a popsicle. :0)
