What Are Homemade Yogurt Clusters Made Of?
Everyone has their own variation of homemade yogurt clusters. For our recipe, we used just a handful of pantry staples for a sweet flavor. Here’s what you’ll need:
- Strawberries – Use fresh strawberries, and dice them into small pieces.
- Yogurt – We use plain Greek yogurt to form the base of these yogurt clusters. It adds a boost of protein, and the tangy taste balances out the sweetness of the rest of the ingredients.
- Honey – Used to sweeten the yogurt. Use maple syrup, if preferred.
- Chocolate Chips – Semi-sweet chocolate chips create the rich, chocolate coating.
- Coconut Oil – This helps thin out the chocolate, making it spreadable.
- Sea Salt – Technically optional, we love the sweet and salty combo a sprinkle of salt creates.
How to Make No-Bake Yogurt Clusters
This recipe is one of the easiest you’ll ever make!
- Create the Yogurt Center. Add the strawberries, yogurt, and honey to a medium bowl. Gently stir to combine.
- Freeze. Add two tablespoon-sized dollops of the yogurt mixture to a parchment paper-lined baking sheet, spacing them out evenly. Freeze until solid.
- Prepare the Chocolate Coating. In a microwave-safe bowl, add the chocolate chips and coconut oil. Microwave in 30-second increments to melt the chocolate. Stir in between each increment until the chocolate is smooth!
- Coat. Dunk the frozen yogurt discs in the warm chocolate mixture, coating both sides.
- Set. Place the yogurt clusters back on the baking sheet, and add a sprinkle of sea salt. Then, place them back in the freezer until they’re solid, and enjoy!
Baking should be a smooth process; now, it could really be one. These pre-cut, no-curl parchment paper sheets are there to support your cookies, cakes, breads etc in their baking process. They can withstand up to 450° of heat without curling! Natural, unbleached baking paper for ovens- these sheets are nature’s best.
Substitutions and Variations
We stuck with a chocolate strawberry theme for this recipe. However, there’s really no right or wrong way to make frozen yogurt clusters. Feel free to get creative! To get you started, some of our favorite substitutions and variations include:
- Swapping Out the Yogurt – Any yogurt will work with this yogurt clusters recipe. Experiment with different flavor options to switch it up. For instance, vanilla yogurt and strawberry yogurt both taste great. Just adjust the amount of honey used to suit your preferences.
- Using Different Fruit – Mix and match fresh fruit for fun options like blueberry yogurt clusters. For instance, raspberries, blackberries, blueberries, grapes, kiwi, bananas, and oranges all taste great.
- Including Different Chocolate – If needed, opt for dairy-free chocolate chips. You can also swap out the semi-sweet chocolate with white or dark chocolate varieties instead. Or, add an extra drizzle on top.
- Adding Nut Butter – Add extra depth to the yogurt mixture by stirring in your favorite nut or seed butter. Creamy peanut butter, almond butter, or cashew butter all taste great! For a nut-free option, tahini would work well, too.
- Using Mix-Ins – If you love a little crunch, try adding chopped nuts, granola, chocolate chips, or shredded coconut flakes.
How to Store
These chocolate strawberry yogurt clusters tend to disappear fast! However, they store well, meaning you can make a big batch to keep on hand.
To keep them fresh, store the yogurt bites in an airtight container in the freezer for up to one month. This will keep the consistency like ice cream!
Or, for a softer, creamier consistency, store them in the fridge for up to five days.
Common Questions About This Chocolate Strawberry Yogurt Clusters Recipe
Save it for another batch of yogurt clusters, or enjoy it on its own topped with fruit and granola. You can also use it to make peanut butter banana frozen yogurt bites or peanut butter Oreo yogurt popsicles!
Straining out the extra whey in regular yogurt makes Greek yogurt. As a result, it’s thicker and tangier than regular yogurt. Greek yogurt is also higher in protein and lower in sugar than regular yogurt!
High in protein, vitamins, and fiber, this counts as a healthy treat in our book! Feel free to mix and match ingredients to fit your definition of healthy.
Sure! Just swap out the Greek yogurt with a dairy-free yogurt instead.
