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.
- 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)
- In a bowl, combine the yogurt with the maple syrup. Mix well.
- 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.
- To add some crunch, sprinkle granola on top. Dot the yogurt with blueberries and strawberries or other fruit you have available.
- Freeze the mixture for at least two hours.
- 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.
