Recipe from our chefs: Frozen yogurt pizza

Looking for a nutritious snack that’s easy, cool and sweet? This frozen yogurt pizza was designed by the chefs of Nutrition Services at The Ohio State University Wexner Medical Center.

The zero-fat Greek yogurt is packed with protein, and with fruit rich in vitamins and minerals, this five-ingredient treat can keep kids and grownups alike feeling full and energized. Maple syrup helps sweeten the mix, and granola adds some grains and crunch.

Recipe ingredients:

  • 1 ½ cups plain Greek yogurt
  • 1 to 3 tablespoons maple syrup
  • ½ cup granola
  • ½ cup blueberries
  • 3 to 4 strawberries, sliced (or another favorite seasonal fruit)

Recipe steps:

  1. In a bowl, combine the yogurt with the maple syrup. Mix well.
  2. Place the yogurt in the center of a baking sheet lined with parchment paper or a silicone baking mat. Use a spatula to smooth it out about ¼ inch thick, ensuring that it’s thick enough to hold the fruit but thin enough to freeze quickly.
    Tip: After spreading the yogurt, smack the baking sheet against your cutting board or counter to make sure the yogurt is distributed in an even layer.
  3. To add some crunch, sprinkle granola on top. Dot the yogurt with blueberries and strawberries or other fruit you have available.
  4. Freeze the mixture for at least two hours.
  5. Use a knife to cut the mixture into bite-size pieces or wedges. Serve right away or store in the freezer in an airtight container or bag.
    Tip: To make it easier to cut the frozen yogurt, dip the knife in hot water, then wipe it off to eliminate excess before cutting.
