A “Cool” Snack for Outside Play

Summer holidays is a time to play outside with friends. Day after day children occupy themselves outside; riding bikes, playing catch, building camps, swimming and many other summertime activities. Playing outside for hours at a time in the hot sun can also make them very warm and thirsty. This summer instead of popsicles, freezies and slushies, help cool down your child with something new…….frozen yogurt berries!

The kids will go crazy over this “cool” treat. It’s easy; they can even help you make them!

Frozen Yogurt Berries

Ingredients

  • 2 cups of berries (strawberries, blueberries, raspberries, blackberries)
  • 1.5 cups of yogurt (plain, vanilla or flavored)

Directions

Line baking sheet with parchment paper. Stick a toothpick into a berry to pick it up, and dip it into the yogurt. Use another toothpick to place the yogurt-covered berry onto the baking sheet. Repeat until all berries are covered, leaving space between each on the sheet. Freeze until solid, at least 1 hour. Keep frozen in resealable bags or plastic/glass containers until you serve.
