We all need some healthier treat ideas in our life right? I know I do. I’m always looking to fix sweet cravings, but without a ton of calories. That’s why these greek yogurt frozen treats are perfect as they’re the perfect amount of sweet, and satisfying enough that you don’t need more than 1.

This would be totally easy to switch up based on the ingredients you have, so its more of an idea versus a recipe.

I didn’t measure, as no measuring was needed, and you may use more or less depending on the molds you’re using. Since I didn’t measure at all, I didn’t calculate the nutrition on this recipe as I usually do.

These hearts are actually on the larger side, so you can totally use a smaller mold and get more bite-sized treats.

This is how they looked popped out of the mold.

I chose to use plain greek yogurt with some stevia drops, since I did added about a tsp of raspberry jam, and of course, some dark chocolate. With dark chocolate, its such a nice rich flavor, you don’t need much! I just used enough to make a thin layer over the top.  The combo of the yogurt, raspberry and chocolate is perfect together, and in these heart molds, it makes a perfect little Valentine’s Day treat! Only these are guilt-free!

You could totally switch up the dark chocolate for milk or white chocolate, and you could even make these into popsicles. If you did popsicles, you could use the exact same method!

Guilt free frozen treats made with only 4 ingredients!

Recipe type: Dessert
Ingredients
  • Greek Yogurt (I used non-fat)
  • Stevia drops *optional (I used NuNaturals vanilla stevia to taste. Could also use honey to taste)
  • Raspberry jam (or strawberry would be great too)
  • Melted Chocolate (I used Green & Black's 70% dark chocolate)
Instructions
  1. Mix the greek yogurt (however much you're using) and sweeten to taste with stevia (or whatever sweetener you choose).
  2. Layer the greek yogurt in the mold you're using. I prefer silicone molds as the treats pop right out even if frozen solid.
  3. Next, add about 1 tsp of raspberry jam.
  4. Place in the freezer while you melt the chocolate. I melted for 30 seconds in the microwave, then stirred and microwaved another 30 seconds until melted.
  5. Remove the mold from the freezer and working quickly, drizzle chocolate on 1 mold, spread around quickly, and move to the next. Try to do it as quick as you can or the chocolate will set on you.
  6. Place in the freezer until the yogurt is frozen (about 45 minutes). Pop out of the mold and enjoy! If it gets to frozen, just allow to that in a bowl on the counter for 10 minutes.

    This is a great idea! I’ll be making something similar soon. Greek yogurt is one of my favorite snacks…better yet if it’s frozen!
