Fruity Frozen Yogurt Bites

 

Today’s Fruity Frozen Yogurt Bites are sponsored by Froozer. I love sharing my new vegan finds along with a tasty recipe and sponsored posts help make that happen. Thank you for your support. 

Happy New Year, guys! This is my first recipe post of 2018, so I decided to make it a healthy one. It feels good to get off to a good start!

If you’ve decided to give up sweets for the new year, you don’t have to be sad about it. You can just choose a healthier alternative. These Fruity Frozen Yogurt Bites will satisfy your sweet tooth but won’t make you feel guilty afterward.

The ingredients are simple, wholesome and totally nutritious! I made these tasty treats with Froozer Fresh-Fruit Frozen Sticks, non-dairy yogurt, almonds, dates and pure maple syrup. That’s it!

Taste testing

I’ve heard positive reviews of Froozer Fresh-Fruit Frozen Sticks, so I was really excited to test them out for the first time. I checked out their store locator online and I was happy to see them selling in mainstream stores. So, I headed to Walmart to pick some up.

Before deciding on a recipe to make, I wanted to test them out just as they were. I gave one to Grant and opened one for myself. I thought Grant might not go for them without any sugar added, but he really loved them and I was pleasantly surprised myself. They were perfectly sweet and refreshing.

What is Froozer?

It’s a great tasting frozen snack made with 100% fruit – all the goodness and great taste of perfectly ripened fruits, with no added sugar, juice or concentrate.

Also, they are non-GMO certified, gluten-free, kosher certified, preservative-free, low calorie, convenient, and the best part, they are VEGAN!

I love that they are portable and you can grab a stick of nutrition as you walk out the door too!

Froozer selects their fruit at the peak of ripeness. and then it’s flash-frozen. So, that means the peak of their nutrition, and sweetness will be preserved for you in a delicious snack. During this process, the water and fiber content stays intact too.

Froozer comes in four delicious flavors, Blue Aloha, Tropical Sunset, Strawbanana Bliss and Orchard Cherry Berry. I loved them all, but the Blue Aloha was my favorite. Grant chose the Tropical Sunset.

Fruity Frozen Yogurt Bites

The Froozer Sticks are perfectly delicious on their own, but I thought it would be fun to turn them into Frozen Yogurt Bites. The almond-date crust adds a subtle crunch, and the yogurt makes them ultra-creamy with a hint of tang.

They are deliciously sweet and totally nutritious!

Ingredients
Almond Date Crust
  • 1/2 cup raw almonds
  • 1/2 cup dates , pitted (*see note)
  • Pinch of salt
Fruity Frozen Yogurt Layer
Optional Topping Ideas
  • Berries, coconut shreds or granola
Instructions
Almond Date Crust
  1. Place all ingredients into a food processor. Process until it forms a loose dough. Press between your fingers to make sure it sticks together. Add more dates or nuts for the needed consistency.

  2. Line a muffin pan with standard-size liners. Put about 1 heaping tablespoon of crust at the bottom of each liner. Press firmly down. (*see note) Pop in freezer while you make the filling

Fruity Frozen Yogurt Layer
  1. Place yogurt in a food processor or high-powered blender first. Break up each Froozer stick in 2-3 pieces before adding (helps it breakdown easier). Blend until creamy and smooth.

  2. Place about 2 tablespoons of mixture on top of the crust. Add optional toppings if desired. 

  3. Pop back in the freezer for about 3-4 hours for a softer consistency (longer for a solid one) Thaw for a few minutes before eating. Store in an airtight container for 3-4 weeks. 
Recipe Notes

* Makes about 10 Fruity Frozen Yogurt Bites.


*DATES: If the dates aren't soft & somewhat moist, soak them in water for 15 minutes before using. Drain well and pat dry before use.


*CRUST: If the crust sticks to your fingers and it's hard to press into liners. Use a small round jar, lined with plastic wrap to press down. I used the tamper from my food processor and it worked perfectly.


* Prep time doesn't include chilling time.
