3. Flash-freeze yogurt dots in freezer until frozen, approximately 10 minutes.
4. Place in a container and keep in freezer for up to 2 weeks.
Treat Tips from the Chef!
Even though I use blueberries and raspberries, feel free to use whatever kind of fruit you and your kids like. And, if you do use these berries, you can either blend them together to create one purple color or blend the colors separately to have purple dots and red dots. Rather than forming the yogurt mixture into dots, you can even just place it in a small bowl and eat it like ice cream! It’s delicious, quick, and healthy!
