Sure, ice cream and ice pops are the darling desserts of summer, but I'm lobbying for the new kid in town–frozen yogurt...anything! And I don't mean the frozen yogurt that you get from a machine; I'm talking DIY-style straight-out-of-the-plastic-cup frozen yogurt. Variations on this creamy treat have popping up all over the place–see here
, and here
. As such, I was inspired to try it on my own using some vanilla soy yogurt I had in the fridge. I had to made them festive with some drops of food coloring, but they really don't need it. They're deliciously addicting, and the perfect snack when you're craving something sweet and refreshing.
Frozen Yogurt Dots:
Yogurt of choice
Food coloring (optional)
Fill a plastic sandwich bag 1/3 full with yogurt. If desired, add food coloring, and mix.
Cover a small plate, cutting board, or tray with wax paper. Snip a small (very small!!) corner off of the yogurt-filled bag and pipe dots onto the wax paper (see photo below).
Pop yogurt dots in the freezer for about 10-15 minutes. Remove from freezer, pop dots off of wax paper, and enjoy a creamy, delicious snack!
If you wish to serve these at a party, place a tablespoon of dots in decorative cupcake liners, and place back in freezer until ready to serve. They melt quickly, but they're so good they will not last that long anyway!
