One of the very first treats I pinned on Pinterest was Frozen Yogurt Dots. I can’t believe I am only now trying my hand at them! My inspiration comes from Jillie at One Good Thing by Jillie. I don’t think my frozen yogurt dots are as pretty as hers, but they were so quick and easy to make! I decided to make my yogurt dots a little bit differently. Not too long ago I proclaimed my love for greek yogurt. I am still eating Chobani religiously. I think I may have converted my husband in eating greek yogurt. That was not an easy task.
At my local supermarket I found a new flavor of Chobani available. The flavor is Chocolate Vanilla Chunk 2% Low Fat Greek Yogurt. Yummy! I bought an extra container just to make yogurt dots with.
If you’re not familiar with greek yogurt you are really missing out. The texture is so much creamier than regular yogurt. In my humble opinion: Greek yogurt is tastes a million times better than regular.
You don’t need to worry about changing things up if you decide to make make frozen yogurt dots out of greek yogurt. Fill up a plastic sandwich bag with yogurt and snip the corner to make a piping bag. Don’t be like me and make a humongous tip like I did unless you want bigger dots. They eat all the same, right?
For this post I used a glass plate covered with wax paper.
If you live in a small apartment or duplex or have a refrigerator with small space you know how difficult it can be to store things. In Jillie’s recipe she piped dots onto a baking tray. My freezer could not fit a cookie sheet even if it’s life depended on it! You’re not completely out of luck if you can’t place a cookie sheet on a freezer. A plate, preferably a plastic plate, will do just fine in the freezer. I only have glass plates on hand. Since Greek frozen yogurt dots freeze in less than an hour I didn’t sweat placing the plate in the freezer.
Please Note: If you use a glass plate the plate will be pretty cold. I do not suggest stacking glass plates on top of plates in the freezer or leaving the glass plate in the freezer for more than an hour unless you want to crack a plate.
In about an hour they will be nice and frozen. At this point you can either eat what you made or store them in a air tight container.
Frozen Greek yogurt dots are so easy to make I definitely recommend keeping these on hand for your entire family. Even your little ones may enjoy them. They really do look like candy!
