Variations

Mixed Berry Medley: 

Instead of using only strawberries, mix it up with a variety of your favorite fruits such as blueberries, raspberries, and blackberries. The combination of different berries will add a burst of colour and flavor to your homemade yogurt bites. 

Tropical Twist: 

Enhance the tropical vibes by incorporating some mango and coconut shavings for a healthy snack! 

Chocolate Indulgence: For all the chocolate lovers out there, add a touch of indulgence by mixing in a tablespoon of cocoa powder into the mixture, you could also try adding some vegan or dark chocolate chips with a dash of peppermint. This will give your yogurt bites a delightful chocolate-mint flavour. Plus cocoa powder is milk protein free. If you’re feeling adventurous drizzle with melted chocolate. 

Lemon Zest: 

Infuse a zingy and citrusy flavour into your summer time treat by adding freshly grated lemon zest. The combination of lemon and mint will create a refreshing and invigorating taste.

FAQ

What plant based yogurt should I use?

I used fortified soya based yogurt but you can use whatever you prefer. I would always advise that the yogurt used was fortified with calcium and iodine and wasn’t high in sugar, especially if giving to your little ones. 

How do I ensure that the yogurt I choose is Vegan. 

When choosing yogurt for this recipe, carefully read the ingredient labels to ensure that it does not contain any animal derivatives. 

Can I substitute the strawberries with other fruits?

Absolutely! You can substitute the strawberries with other safe fruits like mashed raspberries, blueberries or mango.  

Is it safe to have mint in pregnancy? 

Mint is generally considered safe during pregnancy. However, I would always advise to wash it under cold running water

before adding to the recipe. This will help to remove any pesticides. 

Can I add sweeteners to the yogurt bites? 

I wouldn’t advise to add any sweetners to the yogurt bites as you will get the natural sweetness from the fruit. For a twist you could try plant based vanilla yogurt which you can find in the grocery store. 

Can I use ice cream in place of yogurt?

Can I use ice cream in place of yogurt

Yes, if you’re craving a creamier bite you can swap yogurt for vegan ice cream. Instead of placing the bites on a baking tray try pouring it into an ice cube tray for fun, bite-sized delights. 

How to store

Freezing: After preparing freeze them in a single layer on a baking sheet for around 2 hours or until they are firm and fully frozen. This initial freezing stage helps them keep their shape and prevents them from sticking together.

Airtight Container: Once the strawberry frozen yogurt bites are fully frozen, transfer them to an airtight container or a freezer-safe zip-top bag. Make sure to label the container with the date. They will generally keep for 2 weeks but I doubt they’re going to be in there that long! 

Layering: If you need to stack them in multiple layers within the container, separate each layer with parchment or baking paper to prevent them from sticking together.

Thawing and Serving: When you’re ready to enjoy, simply remove what you want from the freezer and let them thaw for 1-2 minutes.

Remember, yogurt bites can soften quickly at room temperature so you and you’re baby will likely get a little messy.

Notes

Variations
Feel free to customise the recipe by substituting the strawberries with other fruits of your choice, such as raspberries, blueberries or diced mango. You could also add in some cocoa powder for that dairy free chocolate kick! 
Dairy Free yogurt
I used fortified soya yogurt in these recipes but you can use any plant-based yogurt that you like. Just make sure it has added calcium and iodine. 
Silicone Molds
Silicone molds work really well for shaping the yogurt bites, as they are flexible and make it easier to remove the frozen bites without sticking. 
Freezing Time:
Ensure that the yogurt bites are fully frozen before transferring them to a container or bag for long-term storage. This typically takes around 2 hours, but freezing time may vary depending on the size of the bites and the temperature of your freezer. If you are stacking them for storage, make sure you separate them with parchment paper. 
Labeling and Date:
When storing the yogurt bites in the freezer, label the container or bag with the name of the recipe and the date of preparation. This will help you keep track of freshness and ensure you consume them within a reasonable time frame.
