After racking my tired brain for WEEKS trying to figure out an easier way to make my new favorite treat, Frozen Yogurt-Covered Blueberry Bites, I did it! **doing a happy dance**
It’s actually kind of frightening how OBVIOUS it was…and yet it took me so long to figure it out. Ah well….better late than never I say.
Frozen Yogurt-Covered Blueberry Kabobs
- Wooden Skewers
If you are using frozen blueberries, take some out of the freezer and let sit at room temp for 5 to 10 minutes to soften up just a a little bit. (Makes it easier to skewer those little suckers.)
Take your skewer and start stabbing blueberries! You’ll need to use your fingers to slide them up the stick individually. I slid mine about 1/2 way up the stick.
(If you are planning on feeding this to small children (or even big ones!) I would suggest snipping off the sharp pointy end at this point.)
Keeping stabbing/skewering berries until you reach the end of the stick.
Now lay that baby down in a lovely pillow of yogurt (I love the honey greek yogurt) and ROLL BABY, ROLL!
Would you look at that!?!? A perfect Blueberry Yogurt Kabob that took all of about 1 minute!
Now go crazy and make as many as your little heart desires (or your freezer will hold.)
I put most of mine in a container standing on end and then placed them in the chest freezer out in our garage (they were too tall for my kitchen freezer)…
…but you can also just carefully lay them out on a plate or cookie sheet. Both work wonderfully!
Now go distract yourself for about half an hour with something useful (or not) and in that short a time you have a beautiful frozen treat!!
- Wooden Skewers
- If you are using frozen blueberries, take some out of the freezer and let sit at room temp for 5 to 10 minutes to soften up.
- Take your skewer and start stabbing blueberries. Slide about ½ way up the stick until you reach the end of the stick.
- Roll the stick of blueberries in the yogurt to evenly coat them.
- Freeze for at least 30 minutes on a cookie sheet or in a container.
Warning: making Frozen Yogurt Blueberry Kabobs will result in purple finger syndrome, despite repeated licking of fingers during the kabob making process.
Don’t panic. A little “Miracle Cleaner” (baking soda and peroxide) takes it right off. :-)
