Strawberry Yogurt Bites



I love Krista's recipes at Everyday Mom's Meals.  She is always sharing something fun...frugal and delicious.  I can count on her recipes to list ingredients that I have on hand. 

I love that! 

So when I saw this shared at our weekly Weekend Potluck party, I made them within hours.  

What a special treat!  So simple - mix yogurt and jello - microwave it and
pour into cupcake liners.  Top with fruit!  What a terrific idea. 

These little bites of yummy could be a special treat to share with your kids for Valentine's Day.  They won't even know they're getting extra calcium!

The adults will love them too! 

Of course you could use whatever fruit you'd like. I used light sugar free strawberry banana yogurt and sf s-b jello.  Sugar free always makes for a softer set, but just as delicious. 

These would also be extra special if you used heart-shaped molds. 

(I did see an idea once where you put a little ball of foil between the muffin tin and the cupcake paper....to shape it into a heart-shape.  Bummer I didn't think of that when making these=) 

Enjoy!

Line 9 or 10 muffin cups with paper liners. Mix yogurt and dry jello in microwavable bowl. Microwave on high for 2 minutes. Stir well. Microwave another 2 - 3 minutes until jello is completely dissolved, stirring after each minute. 

Spoon into prepared muffin cups. Chill atleast an hour, or until set.  Top with fresh berries.  Remove papers and serve.
