Fro-Yo Bites-2 ways.Posted: April 23, 2013
I wanted to make the Lean Green Bean’s Frozen Yogurt Bites, but I didn’t have any granola on hand…and I didn’t feel like making any.
took everything out of the cupboard that was almost gone and dumped it into a bowl improvised. I think I did pretty well…but I’ll let you be the judge.
These bites are so easy to make, it’s just silly. Seriously, I can’t even call this a recipe. I’m going to give you two ways to make these, the first what I actually made and the second, what I would have done if I had these items on hand.
The sky is the limit with these, so play around with your ingredients!
Fro-Yo Bites-2 ways:
First Way-What You’ll Need:
- 1 cup Greek Yogurt, I used Strawberry
- 1 small banana chopped
- ~1/4 cup flax-seed meal
- ~1/3 cup chopped cashews
- ~1 cup Heritage O’s (or Cheerios)
- ~1/3 cup cocoa nibs
Second Way-What You’ll Need:
- 1+ cup Vanilla Greek Yogurt.
- 1 small banana, chopped
- ~1 cup puffed/crispy rice cereal
- 1/2 cup pistachios, chopped
- 1/3 cup dried cherries, chopped
- ~1/4 cup cocoa nibs
- Optional: coconut flakes, to taste
What to do-Either Way:
Combine ingredients until everything is well coated. You may need to add another spoonful or two of yogurt, depending on your taste (I did).
Scoop mixture into ice cube tray and place in freezer until mixture hardens. If you don’t have a free ice cube tray, you can also line a pan with wax paper, freeze and cut into bars.
If you’re feeling adventurous, dip frozen bites into melted chocolate. Re-freeze. Definitely do this step with the second variety. Yum!
Makes 14 bites. Store in freezer.
