Strawberries and yogurt. Yup, that’s it. These sweet and healthy frozen yogurt covered strawberries require just two ingredients and no time at all!
Nothing beats an icy cold treat on a hot summer day. Actually, I enjoy frozen desserts any time of year! I also simply love fresh fruit in season and freezing is the perfect way to enjoy nature’s best whenever you want.
These are inspired by our frozen blueberry bites but sometimes those are just too small and are enjoyed too quickly. Something about a coated strawberry is just so decadent and makes me think of chocolate!
Another bonus is these yogurt and strawberries are safe for dogs, so these are the perfect treat to share with your pup! Like our Dog Friendly Banana Splits and Egg Muffin Cups, these treats are a celebration of our new site, BoneAppetreat.com! Have a pup? They’ll love all the dog food recipes, nutrition tips, enrichment ideas, and gear!
Ingredients for Frozen Yogurt Covered Strawberries
Two ingredients are all you need for these yogurt covered strawberries! It takes no time at all to wash and prep your fruit, either. Honestly, the hardest part is waiting for them to freeze solid!
- Fruit: Today we chose strawberries, but any fresh ripe fruit will do!
- Yogurt: Grab any yogurt you want. Greek, regular, flavored or not. Just be sure and read the ingredients carefully if you plan to make these for dogs. You don’t want artificial flavors or sweeteners for dogs (such as xylitol, which is toxic for dogs).
Absolutely love yogurt? Let these freeze solid and then do a second dip and freeze again. Wouldn’t it be pretty to dip strawberries in blueberry yogurt and then plain? Dip your second layer on an angle so the first color peeks out!
How to make Frozen Yogurt Coated Strawberries
Step 1: Wash and Prep
I keep the strawberries whole for a decadent look, but you can also cut them in half to make it easier to eat.
Step 2: Dip
Dip your berries into the yogurt and then set them on a parchment-lined plate or pan. If using whole berries just hold onto the leaves to dip. If you cut them, try using a couple of toothpicks to dip.
Then all that’s left is to freeze. Strawberries take about 2 hours to freeze solid.
Plain And Simple: Use plain yogurt for an elegant look.
Double Dip: Dip, freeze, dip for an extra thick coating that cracks when you bite it. Try dipping in two different flavors for a fun twist.
Protein Bites: Use Greek yogurt for a little burst of protein with your fruit.
Plays well with
These delicious strawberry bites work as a snack, dessert, or even breakfast. The simple ingredients mean they are entirely guilt-free.
- Serve these frozen bites at your next barbecue right along with Grilled Fruit Skewers. The contrast of hot and cold will be a delight.
- Chocolate Fruit Truffles are another simple 2-ingredient delight. If you are using plain yogurt here the dark chocolate dipped truffles will be the perfect visual companion.
- Watermelon Berry Fruit Salad is another great way to serve fruit. You can showcase the different ways fruit and yogurt can be presented. Nothing boring here!
- 12 small/medium strawberries
- 1 cup Greek yogurt plain or vanilla, 230 g
- Prep: Wash strawberries and pat them dry. Line a baking sheet or plate with parchment paper.
- Coat: Holding the strawberry by the green leaves, dip each berry into the yogurt a few times to evenly coat with yogurt, then set on the prepare plate. Freeze until solid, about 2 hours.
- Optional Second Coat: For a thick, even layer of yogurt, repeat the process one more time, dipping each berry in yogurt again and freezing until solid.
