Frozen Greek Yogurt Fruit Bites are a fun treat for adults and kids, especially in the warmer months. Greek Yogurt is mixed with fresh fruit and honey and frozen into a bite sized snack that is packed with protein!
FROZEN GREEK YOGURT FRUIT BITES
Today I am excited to share one of my favorite frozen treats that works well as a dessert or snack. These Frozen Greek Yogurt Fruit Bites have protein in them, making them a nice snack option, but also work well as a nice treat after dinner. We especially like making these in the summer months.
Along with this delicious recipe using Stonyfield Greek Yogurt I am going to share a little about our recent trip to the Cleveland Zoo in support of the Savings Animals From Extinction Program that Stonyfield is a part of.
We went to the zoo on a rainy day but my kids didn’t care one bit. They had a blast seeing all of the animals, riding the train around the zoo and learning more about the AZA SAFE Program. In case you need a refresher AZA SAFE: Saving Animals From Extinction, focuses the collective expertise within our accredited zoos and aquariums and leverages their massive audiences to save species.
At the same time, SAFE will build capacity to increase direct conservation spending, as well as our members’ impact on saving species through work in the field, in our zoos and aquariums, and through public engagement. We have done it before. Some species exist only because of the efforts of aquariums and zoos and our partners. Will, my oldest, is particularly interested in animals and soaked it all up.
Of course we brought along our Stonyfield yogurt for the kids to snack on. I always try to pack healthy snacks for them when we got to the zoo or museums.
It helps ensure that they are eating the right kind of foods when we are out and about and helps to provide them energy.
We are lucky to have two zoos where we live-the Akron Zoo and the Cleveland Zoo. The Cleveland Zoo is much larger and has pretty much any animal you might expect to see.
My kids loved the elephants and couldn’t believe how big they were up close.
As part of today’s post about the zoo I also wanted to share a quick and easy recipe for these Frozen Greek Yogurt Fruit Bites. These are the perfect summer snack for the kids and adults too. I like to make a variety of these using different fruits. Sometimes I will try strawberries and blackberries or maybe just try one kind of berry, like raspberries. If your kids feel that the Greek yogurt it too tart in the yogurt bites add additional honey to sweeten them up. Another fun idea is to mash the raspberries a bit to create a beautiful red color. These could be a fun, festive treat for Memorial Day or the 4th of July too!
Today’s post is in partnership with Stonyfield. As always, opinions are 100% my own.
