I was so excited when Mel asked me to write a little something for YAMF because as a party and kid friendly blog, I have to make zero excuses for covering everything in sprinkles. Not that I make a lot on my own blog, it’s just that if anyone can back me up on sprinkles needing their own food group title it’s the little ones, am I right?
Good news is kids and adults alike will rejoice over this frozen yogurt bon bon recipe (sprinkled or not), because they’re a super easy way to make a lower calorie (and fewer sugared up children) version of the infamous ice cream dessert we all know and love…
White chocolate chips for melting
Frozen fruit (optional)
Gel food coloring (optional)
Ice cube tray
In a bowl, pour in just enough yogurt to make the amount of ice cube sized bon bons you’ll want. Next, squeeze in a little bit of honey and stir. You can add more or less honey depending on how sweet you want the bon bons to be. You can also blend a few fruits into the yogurt if you’d like to create mini smoothies almost. I added strawberries and bananas to one row of yogurt cubes but I ended up eating those before I actually finished the end photos, so don’t judge me.
Once your ice tray is filled, let it freeze for several hours until completely frozen solid. Next, melt your white chocolate and add in any food coloring you’d like. Dip the frozen yogurt cubes into the the chocolate one by one and immediately dip them in a small bowl a sprinkles and place on a plate sprinkle side down in the freezer until ready to serve.
They turn out to be a really cute way for a grab and go summer refresher without the guilt. I think I’ve clearly showcased that by eating all of the strawberry bananas ones before they got their glamour shots, but then again this is coming from the girl that sprinkles everything.
