Frozen Yogurt Covered Blueberries

September 8, 2014

It has been SO. HOT. recently. In Boston we have had the hottest days of the whole summer this past week; I thought it was fall! What happened to cooler days, crunching leaves, and steaming pots of soup?

While recipes for those cooler days are coming (don’t worry), I couldn’t bring myself to prepare or eat hot food this weekend. What I did make, however, were frozen yogurt covered blueberries.

I had some leftover berries from my blueberry jam extravaganza last weekend, and I wanted to make something cool and refreshing.

When I was little my mom used to put grapes in the freezer and we would
dip them in plain yogurt and brown sugar; it was such a tasty treat! Creating an incredibly easy twist on this idea, I decided to dip blueberries in some vanilla greek yogurt and freeze them up. Yep. Two simple ingredients: blueberries and vanilla greek yogurt.

Don’t be deceived by the recipe’s simplicity, however. When combined, these two ingredients create a delicious treat at any time of the day. Store them in your freezer and grab a handful whenever you need a refreshing pick-me-up. Enjoy!
