Chocolate Dipped Frozen Yogurt Bites

Hi Friends!

So here’s the deal. Bright and early tomorrow morning, I leave to go to Blend Retreat! I can’t believe it’s finally here! I have approximately 9,280 things to do before my flight so I don’t have much time to chat.

But I just HAD to share these with you. HAD TO!

So let’s dive right in, shall we?

I don’t think it’s any secret that I adore these two companies:

They go together like peanut butter and jelly. And mixing them together is one of my favorite snacks. It also just so happens that they’re both Blend sponsors! Totally coincidental…but I guess these could also be called Blend Bites!

So here’s the deal. I love yogurt and granola mixed together. Usually I mix them together and put them on my oatmeal…but summer’s coming. And i’m not a huge fan of hot oatmeal when it’s hot out. So I decided I needed a new way to eat my favorite snack.

I’ve heard that you can freeze Chobani, but I’d never tried it. Until yesterday.

Yesterday I dumped a container of Chobani in a bowl, added some LGF granola and stirred it all up. Then I spooned the mixture into an ice cube tray and stuck it in the freezer.

After a few hours, out popped some frozen yogurt granola bites. As I was munching on one I decided some chocolate would really kick things up a notch. So I grabbed some chocolate chips, melted them and dipped my cubes in the bowl one at a time.

Then I put a picture on instagram (are you following me? theleangreenbean) & twitter to taunt you guys!

And then I made you wait until today for the “recipe”. That wasn’t very nice was it?

Well here it is. You need exactly 3 things:

Friends, go make these now!

Also, some of you have asked what programs I use to play with my pictures. The one above was done in picassa….the two below were done with ipiccy.

Because really, every once and while you just need something a little more exciting than this:

bite7 Chocolate Dipped Frozen Yogurt Bites

 

Anyways, my mind is already spinning with what to do for my next batch. I think i’m going to put a banana slice between the yogurt and the chocolate. Or maybe stick an almond in the middle of each one. If I’m feeling adventurous, I might even try putting the melted chocolate on the top before even sticking them in the freezer! That would be easiest, if I could get them out of the ice cube trays without breaking the chocolate.

Oh, and because I know someone will ask…yes I did try coating one entirely in chocolate. It worked, but it wasn’t easy. The cold cubes make the chocolate sieze up and it was just a lot more work. I think dipping is the way to go for sure.

Enjoy!

  24. GENIUS!!

  25. Those looks so good! This may be a silly question, but I’ve wanted to try freezing greek yogurt before (like over raisins) and I’ve always wondered if the yogurt melts back to its original form? Like do you have to eat them right out of the freezer?
    Caroline @ After Dinner Dance recently posted..Spicy Roasted Cauliflower and WIAW

    • It definitely starts melting after a little while. They’re pretty hard when you first take them out but after just a few minutes, they start to soften. I don’t know how long it takes for them to soften completely, but I would guess not all that long.

  26. Girl – you may have just made my day!! Making these now!

  42. So you like using iPiccy? I was wondering about it.
    Aly recently posted..Two Lemonades

    • i don’t 100% love it. it doesn’t let you move the pictures around as much as I’d like when you put them in collages…like once you put the picture in a collage, it doesn’t let you really pic what part of the pic you want to show (at least not as much as i’d like) but there are some cool effects and fonts and I like that you can make collages.

  43. Oh my gosh!! These are genius! So easy and they look tooo good! :)

  53. These look awesome. Love Grown is THE BEST!

  54. That looks so yummy! Please check out the ingredient label on the granola. Is it manufactured in a facility containing tree nuts? I am allergic to tree nuts and dried fruit and have found it impossible to find ‘edible’ granola.

  55. these look absolutely amazing!!!
    Jaime recently posted..Kids say the darndest things

  56. OMG LOVE IT!!! :D Definitely will be trying it!

  57. I am a huge fan of both Love Grown Foods and Chobani so this treat is right up my alley. Definitely trying this recipe. :)
    Brittany recently posted..8 Simple Sculptors from TIU and Self Magazine

  58. From one CHO lover to another, these sound AWESOME!! I need to find myself a Love Grown replacement (they don’t carry it in my area) so I can make these. Maybe add some peanut butter?!
    Liz (Little Bitty Bakes) recently posted..{iPhone Dinner} Grilled Chicken, Feta & Sun Dried Tomato Panini

  59. I need to try Greek yogurt again. The last time I had it, the taste was a little too sour or tangy for me. Any recommendations for that?? I will def have to try this though, chocolate makes everything better :)

    • it definitely takes some getting used to. definitely start with a flavored kind and mix something in like granola or dried fruit. then I started mixing a couple spoonfuls of flavored with some plain and now i eat mostly plain with granola and fruit mixed in!

  60. I love this. I’m from Puerto Rico and because it is so hot we used to freeze everything we could to make it a cooler treat, including yogurt. I love the consistency of yogurt that has been frozen. I need to try it adding granola. Looks yummy. Visiting for the first time!

  74. Jennifer Long says:

    So sad right now :( Why oh why did I not see this recipe before I went to store earlier Ugh… Now all kids asleep and I can’t leave. I will be obsessing on eating these all night. Love Chobani Love Dark chocolate Love granola. My favorite things come frozen :)

  75. You have my head spinning on all the options for this recipe! My girls are going to love this!!
    Shay @ Whine Less, Breathe More recently posted..Friday Fit Fix

  76. Brilliant! I made an experimental batch of granola the other day and it’s not very sweet but it will be perfect in this recipe. I am thinking Black Cherry Oikos Greek yogurt and chocolate will be like a chocolate covered cherry. I love the idea of banana slices, too. Great creative possibilities… Key lime yogurt with kiwi slices? Yum…

    • yum! they all sound delicious! lately i’ve taken to not even bothering to dip them in chocolate. I just throw a handful of chocolate chips into the mix before scooping it into trays! Just as good and less work for me :) i’ve also tried adding fresh fruit into the mix. DEEEELISH! Enjoy :)

  77. these, my friend, are genius!

  78. These sound so so yummy! I bet they’d be really good if you put a strawberry half in each ice cube along with the yogurt and granola!
