A few months ago I posted a simple idea called “Frozen Yogurt Dots” and little did I know how the idea would EXPLODE! People went bonkers for these little bites of creamy deliciousness. As a matter of fact, that post has been pinned on Pinterest over 572,000 times! I kid you not! :-)
If you read through the more than 120 comments you’ll see that a great deal of the interest came from Mom’s who were thrilled they were able to get their little ones to eat something “good for them” without them even realizing it. :-) They really are like “healthy candy”!
Ever since then I have tried to figure out an even SIMPLER version of the same idea that I could make in several different flavors of yogurt to keep on hand in the freezer for quick summertime treats. But I had apparently reached the limits of my creativity in this area because nothing was coming to me…..until last week……when TWO things happened.
First, I did a post about Florida Orange Juice which inspired me to create these Mini Orange Yogurt Pops (which I can’t stop eating!)…..and second, I stumbled across these awesome miniature “ice trays” in the grocery store when I was looking for plastic straws. Adorable right?
(I have had many emails asking where to find the mini ice cube trays. Like I said above, I found mine in my local Kroger chain grocery store in the paper products aisle. But I also just found some that are almost identical on Amazon.com for anyone who is interested. Here is the link.)
I immediately knew what I wanted to do with them. Inspired by my Mini Orange Yogurt Pops…I took a few different flavors of yogurt (strawberry, blueberry, and vanilla) and combined them with just enough orange juice to make them a pourable consistency, then filled the mini trays and stuck them in the freezer.
Approximately one hour later…..”Creamy Frozen Yogurt Chips” were born. :-)
And once again…I can’t stop eating them! I have decided I must suffer from some FROZEN FOOD deficiency because I truly do LOVE frozen treats of ALL kinds! (And I have the Pinterest board to prove it!) :-)
Anyway…that is my latest foray into frozen treats creation and I apologize that you have to suffer through yet another post about it! But hey….in the words of Betty Rizzo…”there are worse things I could do!” ;-)
