Okay.  I really tried to avoid getting obsessed with Pinterest.  At first I was like, how on earth can someone spends hours looking at pictures?  And then, I fell into their trap made my own Pinterest account.  I would spend a few minutes here and there looking at the Food & Drink section, and sometimes the Fitness section.  I didn’t get what all the hype was about, but now, I’m hooked.

I’m not even the type of person who likes to spend hours online on sites, such as Facebook, but Pinterest is like a whole different story.  Is anyone else obsessed?!?

ANYWAYS, I saw this recipe on Pinterest about a thousand times, no joke, and had to try it myself.  The original recipe used Dannon’s honey yogurt, but I didn’t want any added sugar in my version so I used plain, nonfat Greek yogurt and added my own sugar-free/calorie-free sweetener.  They were amazing!  The only problem was that I left the blueberries in the freezer for too long and my freezer feels like it’s 5x colder than a normal human being’s freezer (I should probably raise the temperature setting…..), so I had to refrigerate them for a whole day until they were edible, aka, not like balls of ice.

1 cup

Healthy Frozen Yogurt Covered Blueberries (2 Ways)

Ingredients:

  • ½ cup Plain, Nonfat Greek Yogurt
  • 40 drops Stevia Extract (or 2 tbs of Honey or Pure Maple Syrup)
  • ⅓ cup Fresh Blueberries, rinsed and dried

Directions:

  1. Line a cookie sheet with a silpat and reserve space in your freezer for the pan, set aside.
  2. In a small bowl, stir together the yogurt and stevia.
  3. Poke a blueberry with a toothpick, dip in the yogurt, and push the berry off the toothpick with another toothpick. Do this with all of the blueberries, and put the pan in the freezer for ~2 hours, or until frozen. Put the blueberries into a sandwich bag and store in the fridge or freezer.

Notes:

For the Lemon version, add 1 tbs of Barlean’s Lemon Zest Omega Swirl to the yogurt mix!

  1. Wow, these look great! Do you think it would work with normal yogurt? I’m vegan and can’t find vegan greek-style yogurt anywhere in my country. The only kind I’m able to get is a bit runny (still tasty, though) soy yogurt, either plain, or fruit flavoured, but those fruit flavoured are very sweet…

    • I’m sure soy yogurt will work, however since it has a higher water content it may turn out more “icy” rather than creamy. A liquid sweetener like honey or agave may solve that, but either way I’m sure they’ll turn out fine! Good luck 🙂

    • Maybe you could drain it through a cheese cloth? I don’t have much experience with vegan yogurt but everyone uses that trick when they can’t find greek yogurt or don’t have it on hand. 🙂

  2. Just followed you on Pinterest 🙂 these look good! i’m also wondering the same thing as the previous comment re vegan yogurt and am wondering whether a thick cashew cream will work as i often make my own ‘yoghurt’ by blending up cashews with water that way since you can make it as thick or runny as you like.

  3. Oh, I love this! What a great idea! Definitely going to give these a try!

  4. Sara checking in from CCofSupermom, thanks for the link back! I love your photos, just stunning! I never think to do anything pretty till after 😀

    I love your addition of the lemon flavored fish oil, I’m going to have to track that down, it sounds like a YUMMY combo!

  5. i think theyd taste great with a graham cracker crumbs coat

  6. These sound like such a refreshing treat! And I was hesitant about Pinterest at first, but I can’t stop “pinning” now!

  7. It looks really yummy! You could almost feel how cold the yogurt is. Not bad! Fish oils do have several health benefits. One of which is the Omega 3 fatty acids which helps prevent arthritis and depression.

  9. could you use bananas or other fruits for this?

  10. I am really craving for this. I think Im’ma rush int he stores now… LOL. thanks for this great one.
