What Are Frozen Yogurt Fruit Cups?
Frozen yogurt fruit cups are exactly as they sound! A favorite among our kids, they come in many variations. However, they nearly always consist of Greek yogurt and some kind of fruit. For our fruit cups, we took the recipe one step further and added a granola-inspired almond meal base. As a result, they’re perfectly sweet, a little crunchy, and super filling. They’re the best handheld treat healthy enough for breakfast yet sweet and decadent enough for dessert.
What You’ll Need
We kept the ingredient list for these fruit cups minimal so hopefully, you won’t even have to run to the store! Here’s everything you’ll need:
- Almond Meal – Also known as almond flour, this can be found in the baking section of most grocery stores. Or, you can easily create your own by pulsing raw almonds in a high-speed blender or food processor.
- Raw Coconut Sugar – A natural plant-based sweetener, coconut sugar helps create a sugary taste but does not result in extreme blood sugar spikes like regular granulated sugar would.
- Coconut Oil – A good source of healthy fats, this helps hold the almond meal base together.
- Greek Yogurt – Slightly tart and tangy, Greek yogurt adds plenty of protein and probiotics for a satisfying fruit cup.
- Honey – This offsets the yogurt and makes this recipe completely irresistible.
- Fresh Fruit – We used raspberries and blueberries to complement the tart tanginess of the yogurt.
