If you blinked, you may have missed strawberry season. That’s okay because we are just getting into blueberry season here in New Jersey which will then be followed by peach season. I took the kids blueberry picking last week at our CSA farm and they filled up buckets with blueberries. They couldn’t have tasted sweeter or fresher. We discussed endless possible recipes on the drive home. Consider yourself warned that more blueberry recipes are to come! For now, we are giving you this recipe for a blueberry frozen yogurt snack that couldn’t be easier. The good thing about snacks that include yogurt is that they are great for your gut. Probiotics exist in yogurt, which is what is in many supplements (such as those provided by unify health – check out their Twitter) to help your digestive system and gut. Obviously, it’s harder to get this type of goodness into children as they aren’t able to simply take a supplement, but these yogurt snacks are definitely the way to go. There are so many variations of what you could add to this recipe. We kept it simple with just three ingredients.
Fruit picking is one of my favorite activities to do with the kids. We happen to live near Hammonton, NJ which is the blueberry capitol. There are no shortage of blueberry farms near us. If you live in New Jersey, this is a great resource for finding pick your own farms.
To make our snack, we combined honey vanilla Greek yogurt with fresh blueberries and spread that out on a parchment lined baking sheet.
I gave the kids options for what to add as toppings. I suggested granola or crushed graham crackers. They chose coconut so they sprinkled some of that on top. Pop that in the freezer for a few hours and then break it or cut it up.
Kids will love this as a snack. Get creative and add whatever toppings you want!
- 3 cups vanilla yogurt
- 1.5 cups blueberries
- toppings of choice (coconut, crushed graham crackers, granola)
- Combine yogurt and blueberries. Spread out on a parchment lined baking sheet. Sprinkle toppings and freeze for a few hours. Cut or break into pieces.
If you don't use honey vanilla yogurt, feel free to add honey and vanilla to your yogurt.
