Frozen Yogurt Blueberry Bites

This is a healthy snack for the kids, and a great way to get them to eat fruit. Better yet? This is a super fast recipe to make. Stick each blueberry with a toothpick, gently swirl it in Greek yogurt, and place it on a cookie sheet, and then place them in the freezer for one hour. Peel them off and enjoy!

You’ll need:

  • 1 small carton of blueberries
  • 2 cups plain Greek yogurt
  • toothpicks

Take a couple hours to make this tea, and you’ll have plenty to last the week (this recipe makes 2 quarts!). Create the blueberry mixture while heating the tea, then add the blueberries and sugar and stir.

You’ll need:

BLUEBERRY MIX

  • 1 pound container of fresh blueberries
  • 2 tablespoons sugar
  • 3 tablespoons water

TEA

  • 2 quarts water
