Red, White, and Blue Berry Almond Frozen Yogurt Bites

Red, White, and Blue Berry Almond Frozen Yogurt Bites are a simple and healthy cold treat for this 4th of July.

Red, White, and Blue Berry Almond Frozen Yogurt Bites

The past couple weeks I have had the busy and stressful, but also incredibly exciting, task for getting my house ready to list for sale. All for good, happy and exciting reasons.

As you can imagine, that it a little bit of a challenge when you cook and write about food for a living. Suddenly my house, and kitchen, needs to be tidy all of the time.

So, we are keeping things pretty simple in the kitchen. Both to minimize the amount of messes that happen in the first place, and also because our new daily routine involves lots of cleaning up every day. There isn’t a lot of time (or energy) to make something complicated.

Desserts and snacks have become simple or make ahead recipes. One of my favorite things to snack on in the summer is fresh fruit. So, the other day I made a bit batch of these Red, White, and Blue Berry Almond Frozen Yogurt Bites.

You can easily make a few dozen at a time and once they’re frozen, store them in a sealed plastic container in the freezer or a large zip top bag. They totally fit the bill for something easy and sweet on a hot day, and I love that they’re bite size and don’t require dishes to eat.

If you’re looking for something simple for your upcoming 4th of July Celebration, I highly recommend giving this recipe a try. You’ll satisfy everyone’s need for sweet while still keeping things on the healthier side, and you’ll help any guests stay cool on a hot day.

First, you’ll line mini muffin trays with liners. In the liners, you’ll add plain granola, Fisher Nut’s Sliced Almonds, then  a mixture of Vanilla Greek Yogurt and lemon juice.

Nuts, like Fisher’s entirely preservative-free varieties, paired with granola give extra crunch and flavor to the creamy lemony vanilla yogurt and fresh fruit

To top the yogurt bites off, you add fresh Raspberries and Blueberries. After that, all you do is freeze them until you’re ready to eat.

You can top these Red, White, and Blue Berry Almond Frozen Yogurt Bites with whatever fruit you like, but for the 4th of July I thought that fresh raspberries and blueberries would look really pretty contrasting with the white frozen Greek yogurt.

Hope you have a wonderful 4th of July weekend!

MORE PATRIOTIC DESSERTS:

Ricotta Cheesecake has a pretty patriotic topping to go along with the creamy, ricotta cheesecake.

You can easily add some blueberries to the mix in these Basil Balsamic Strawberry Shortcake Parfaits for a Red, White, and Blue parfait dessert.

Red White and Blue Berry Dessert Bites are the perfect, easy Patriotic Dessert for your upcoming 4th of July Celebration. A simple crust made out of crescent roll dough is topped with a sweetened cream cheese flavored with a hint of lemon and vanilla.

Fresh Strawberry Galette or Triple Berry Lemon Galette both emphasize the sweet juiciness of the berries without much added sugar.

Easy Flag Fruit Dessert is super simple and features lots of fresh fruit along with white yogurt covered pretzels which are strategically arranged to look like a flag. You could also use Fisher’s Sliced Almonds as one of the “white” sections to add some healthy fats and protein to this easy snack tray.

Red, White, and Blueberry Yogurt Popsicles are fun for the kiddos and will keep them cooled off during hot temps.

Add a layer of fresh blueberries to the bottom of this Vanilla Bean Panna Cotta with Strawberry Rhubarb Compote for a pretty patriotic layered panna cotta.
