Frozen greek yogurt bars! The perfect snack, or a fresh breakfast.

I went for a quick swim this morning and when I got home, all I wanted was something fresh. Luckily I had these babies sitting in my freezer, just calling my name!

These Frozen Greek Yogurt Bars are my latest experiment in healthy snacks. They’re super easy to make and freezing the yogurt makes its usually soupy texture a little more palatable. (I’m not a soup person — it’s all just too slimy.)

The best part? You get to choose your mix ins! This recipe is completely customizable to your cravings. Sweet tooth acting up? Throw in some chocolate chips! Or add your favorite nuts and fruits. The options are endless…

Mix all your ingredients in a bowl.

Here’s what you’ll need: 2 Greek Yogurts (flavor of your choice, I used Vanilla), granola, frozen blueberries, and frozen sliced strawberries (or the mix-ins of your choice)

Directions:

  • Line a tray with foil.
  • In a large bowl, add your containers of greek yogurt.
  • Mix in 3/4 cup granola, then 1 and 1/2 cup of frozen fruit (I used blueberries and strawberries — you can choose whatever you like. At this point you could also add nuts or candy.)
  • Mix together and lay out mixture in tray. Place saran wrap over the container, and place in the freezer until frozen.
  • Once frozen, take container out of the freezer and let it sit until you can cut your yogurt mix into bar-size pieces.

And there you have it! Delicious breakfast bars you can grab out of your freezer to start your day off right. Or even snack on one later when you start to crave something sweet. Just let them sit on your plate for a few minutes before you chow down. Hope you enjoy!

Tip: Store the rest of your bars in the freezer in an air-tight container.
