Dark Chocolate & Blueberry Frozen Yogurt Bites

There’s been a bit of a lull on here and I’m really happy to finally be back!  It’s mid January and post holiday season so let’s kick off winter with a totally delicious snack.

I saw these go viral on social media and just had to try making them. FYI. I don’t usually go for trendy food recipes just because everyone else is doing it. Here’s a perfect example…..I refused to try the viral ice cream wrapped in a fruit roll up and I think my life will go on….but these? OMG…are they ever good.

These are a perfect healthy dessert for any time of the year and are “no bake” plus super easy to make. They taste like healthy ice cream bites and can also be made high protein if you use greek yogurt. Um, ya…..win, win!

Once you try this yummy treat, you won’t be able to stop popping them one by one into your mouth all day long. I tried to resist but since they’re a healthier alternative to traditional candy or dessert it was game on until all these little bites were GONE.

I’m also a firm believer that even though it’s minus 1000 outside, a frozen dessert treat is totally acceptable no matter what the temperature is in Canada. Am I right?

There’s also room here to get very creative with the ingredients. Using blueberries or any other berry is totally acceptable. Adding a crunch is also a great idea. So for my next trick, I’m going to make these with banana and peanut butter. I can’t see how you could go wrong.

Ingredients
  • 2 cups fresh blueberries – rinsed and dried
  • 1 cup Greek yogurt – any Greek yogurt you like - can use vegan too
  • *1 tablespoon of sweetener such as honey, maple syrup or agave if using plain greek yogurt
  • 10ounces dark chocolate
  • Flaky Sea salt – optional for topping
Instructions
  1. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper
  2. In a mixing bowl combine the 2 cups of blueberries with the Greek yogurt and mix well to coat all of the blueberries in the yogurt. Note: Add one tablespoon of honey, maple syrup or agave if using plain Greek yogurt.
  3. Use a spoon or cookie scoop to place small clusters of the yogurt-blueberry mixture onto the lined baking sheet.
  4. Place them about 2 inches apart so they are not touching. I created 6-8 clusters.
  5. Place the baking sheet with the yogurt clusters into the freezer for 20-25 minutes, until they are frozen solid.
  6. In a microwave-safe bowl melt the chocolate in 30-second intervals until it is mostly melted then remove and stir to melt the rest of the chocolate until silky and smooth. Let the chocolate rest for 5 minutes.
  7. Remove the yogurt clusters from the freezer and carefully dip each one into the melted chocolate using a spoon or fork to help coat each one, then place them back onto the lined baking sheet
  8. Continue until you have coated all of the clusters. Top with a pinch of sea salt, if desired. Pop them back into the freezer for a few minutes just to harden the chocolate. ENJOY!
