Greek Yogurt Dots {Gluten Free, Low Fat}

yogurt bitesI discovered the best little homemade snack out there. Children and adults will enjoy this yummy sweet treat. It’s so simple to make and you don’t have to feel guilty gobbling down this heavenly, creamy, gluten free dessert.

Don’t be worried when I tell you that these dots are Greek yogurt, they are blue because I thought it would be fun to incorporate a hint of color into this delicious snack {kids will love that part}.

You will need: 1 cup of greek yogurt {0 % fat}, 1 heaping tablespoon of agave nectar {or honey – if you desire}, 1 drop of blue food coloring {or any other color}, and a ziploc baggie. 

I’d stray away from really reddish hues in the food coloring department, especially for children. However, I am not a child and any type of red food color makes me have a deep headache.

Read about food colorings, here. 

All you need to do is put your 1 cup of yogurt into a mixing bow, add the agave nectar along with the drop of color and stir this sweet mixture up.

With a big spoon, dump the yogurt mixture into a plastic baggie. Make sure all the yogurt is in the bag and pushed all the way to one side.

With scissors, cut a tiny little hole in one of the corners of the bag {the side you squished all the yogurt to!} This will be your tool for making your dots. All you have to do is gently squeeze on the bag – and a nice little dot will form.

Line a cookie sheet with parchment paper and just squeeze little rows of dots onto the pan. When it’s filled up with your beautiful yogurt treats, simply set the pan in the freezer for about an hour.

Once the dots are frozen, use a spatula to get them off the pan and place them in a nice little bowl for others to enjoy.
