These tropical Easter egg frozen yoghurt bites take literally minutes to make. They’re a delicious and healthy Easter treat for toddlers and children.
My kids, like pretty much all others, are getting very excited about Easter and all the fun of Easter egg hunts, the Easter bunny and of course – the chocolate. Unfortunately (or fortunately depending on how you look at it) for them I am one of those parents who is not keen on them receiving and eating bucketloads of chocolate. One small chocolate Easter egg seems to be more than sufficient to me!
However, I don’t like to come across as Scrooge so I try to make healthy Easter themed treats as much as possible. Last year I made these healthy mango and coconut creme eggs, free from fruit and nut chocolates and these apple and carrot hot cross buns.
This year I had a ton of plans but life got in the way so I’ve only managed to make these mini earl grey simnel cakes. My beetroot and apple hot cross buns fell flat when I tried to serve them to the kids and after eating all 12 myself I didn’t fancy making a second batch!
All you need to make these frozen yoghurt bites is yoghurt and fruit. I added a little pinch of turmeric to my frozen yoghurt bites to give them more of a yellow colour. This can easily be left out if preferred. If you’re using frozen fruit you’ll need a powerful blender – I made mine in my Froothie Optimum Nutri Force Extractor.* Otherwise let it defrost before blending. You will also need a silicone mould to make these frozen yoghurt bites. This recipe makes enough to fill two moulds – or 20 eggs.
Here’s how to make Easter egg frozen yoghurt bites
- 100g mixed tropical fruits (mango, pineapple, papaya) fresh or frozen
- 200g plain yoghurt
- Pinch of turmeric (optional), for colour
- Place the fruit, the yoghurt and the turmeric if using into a blender and pulse until well combined.
- Put your silicone mould onto a plate or tray (to make it easier to transport) and spoon the yoghurt mixture into your silicone mould. At this stage you could add lolly sticks to make them like mini Easter egg ice lollies.
- Store any leftover mixture in the fridge.
- Freeze for two hours or overnight. Repeat with any leftover mixture.
- When solid pop out of the mould and store in the freezer.
- Enjoy on their own as a snack or with fresh fruits and granola for breakfast
