Light and Refreshing FroYo Berry Bites

This post may include affiliate links.

Every Summer, the same thing happens. It starts out with excitement – warmer weather is finally here! It’s time to pack away those heavy, winter sweaters and hang out outside again. Then, as the months progress, reality sets in. Summer’s thick, humid air is just as oppressive as winter’s frigid temperatures. After a long day, I really need something light and refreshing to cool me down – and to remind me that I love this time of year! These FroYo berry bites do just the trick.

A frozen refreshment is sort of necessary on a hot day, helping you cool down while also recapturing your summer excitement. Unfortunately, store-bought ice cream is full of excess fat, cholesterol, and calories. And, I don’t know about you, but I tend to load-up on all those crunchy, sugary toppings at the local frozen yogurt spot. Luckily, these healthy FroYo berry bites are a breeze to make. They don’t have a lot of added sugar but they work to satisfy your sweet tooth while also cooling you down.

A Healthy and Refreshing Dessert

This light and refreshing dessert is perfect for warm Summer days!

The only thing that’s better than a cooling, refreshing dessert on a hot day? A guilt-free one! These FroYo berry bites are 100% gluten-free, thanks to the use of crushed almonds as the base. In addition to their amazing flavor (which, kind of makes these frozen treats taste like cheesecake bites), they add a bit of protein to the dessert, too.

Then, there’s that healthy Greek yogurt. Instead of using heavy cream (with all its saturated-fat), we lighten things up with low-fat Greek yogurt. It brings the perfect amount of tang to this bite-sized dessert. Sweeten the yogurt up with honey and some coconut sugar to create a perfect balance of flavors to satisfy your sweet tooth. If you’re feeling brave, go one step further and make your own Greek yogurt instead of buying the store-bought kind.

Top it all off with strawberries or raspberries. Talk about the perfect way to sneak a serving of fruit into your life! They bring a fresh element to the dessert, along with a naturally sweet flavor. If you don’t have any strawberries on hand, feel free to use blueberries or blackberries! A combination of berries will make these FroYo berry bites look beautiful.

Easier Than Pie

These FroYo Berry Bites are a tasty, low-calorie summertime treat!

People always say things are easy as pie, but these FroYo berry bites are actually much easier! All you need to do is mix everything together and pop them into a muffin tin. I love using a muffin tins, even if I’m not baking muffins. From baking eggs to freezing bite-sized desserts, the muffin cup makes everything perfectly portion-sized.

After a few short hours in the freezer, you’ll be ready to enjoy these light-and-refreshing treats. They make a great after dinner dessert, but they’re also well-suited as a midday snack after sweating it out in the yard. Since they store easily in the freezer, they’ll always be ready when you are!

    What is the carbohydrate count (in grams) on 2 tablesppons of coconut sugar?

  2. Betty  March 15, 2016

    What happens if I don’t put coconut oil and just put organic honey?

    • Gale Compton  March 16, 2016

      Betty, The coconut oil helps to firm up the mixture. I can’t say for sure since we’ve never made this recipe without the coconut oil

  3. Mikayla Jones  April 6, 2016

    What are the nutrients?

    • SkinnyMs.  April 7, 2016

      The nutritional data for this recipe is listed just above the recipe ingredients.

  4. Vero  April 7, 2016

    This is so good!!!!! Thanks!!!

  5. Amy  April 8, 2016

    Do you let them thaw a bit before eating so they are easier to eat??

    • Melissa Bump  April 9, 2016

      Amy, You can let them thaw for a bit on the counter to soften, yes.

  6. Robin  April 9, 2016

    How about a little bit of vanilla extract too! Yumm!!

  7. Tracie  April 9, 2016

    Where do you find raw coconut sugar and coconut oil? Is that mostly just at specialty stores? I’m new to all of these ingredients. Thanks for your input.

    • Melissa Bump  April 10, 2016

      Tracie, Coconut sugar needn’t be raw, just regular “coconut sugar” or “coconut palm sugar,” is what you want to get, which can be brown/tan/off white in color and is sold at many Targets and Walmarts along with coconut oil (virgin or refined), as well as in the health food or baking section of some grocery stores, and on Raw honey has more enzymes than regular commercial honey and can often be found in the places mentioned, and is on Amazon.

  8. Christina Aleman  April 15, 2016

    wow this sounds yummy.

  9. Joselyn  April 22, 2016

    Will they melt if left out?

  10. Miranda  April 23, 2016

    Can I substitute with olive oil and regular sugar?

    • Gale Compton  April 24, 2016

      Miranda, Do you mean instead of coconut oil? If so, that won’t work since coconut oil becomes a solid when frozen or refrigerated.

  11. Alex Robledo  April 28, 2016

    are muffin pans the tiny ones or the regular sized ones?

    • Gale Compton  April 28, 2016

      Alex, The regular sized ones, although you could make more and use the smaller ones. 🙂

  12. Gkg  April 30, 2016

    Is the crust with almond meal or granola? In picture it looks like granola. If not can i put granola ?

    • Gale Compton  April 30, 2016

      The crust is a combination of crushed almonds, coconut sugar, and coconut oil. It’s not granola. I prefer crushing my almonds instead of using almond meal, since it adds more texture and gives it that granola look. By the Way, these are delicious!!! In my freezing now. 🙂

  13. Gkg  May 2, 2016

    Thank u so much!!! Will definitely try them:))))

  14. Laura  May 16, 2016

    Is there a substitute for the almonds?
    I have a tree nut allergy but would love to make these!

    • Gale Compton  May 16, 2016

      Laura, Coarsely ground flax seeds should work. I’ve only used almonds for this recipe so can’t say for sure. Keep us posted. 🙂

  15. Nicole  May 18, 2016

    Can you use Stevie? Didn’t want to buy coconut sugar just for one recipe. Thanks!

  16. Tracy  May 22, 2016

    I have a coconut allergy, but see that the oil is used because it firms up when chilled. Is there a substitute for the oil? I saw you said Stevie could replace the sugar but didn’t know if there was an oil replacement?

  17. Lauren  June 23, 2016

    Can these stay frozen for a while to eat at a later date? Can I use granola?

  18. Tracy  July 25, 2016

    Once they are frozen, to keep longer should I place the muffins in a freezer approved container or bag?

    • Gale Compton  July 25, 2016

      Tracy, As long as they are completely frozen that should be fine. 🙂

  19. Catherine  July 25, 2016

    Mine were hard to eat because they were super hard, is that just how they are? I understand that you can let them thaw a bit but even then they were still hard.

    • Gale Compton  July 25, 2016

      Catherine, They should soften up enough to eat once out of the freezer a few minutes.

  20. Lori  July 26, 2016

    Can you use just plain low fat yogurt instead of greek yogurt?

  21. Andrea  July 29, 2016

    Thanks Gale these are great! Just made a batch and used granola – they are delicious 🙂 Thanks for the recipe!

    • Gale Compton  July 29, 2016

      Andrea, Great! Thank you so much for the feedback. 🙂

  22. rjc  November 11, 2016

    is there a substitute for honey or can it be eliminated all together?

    • Nichole Furlong  November 12, 2016

      The honey can be left out of the recipe. If you still desire more sweetness you can substitute 1 teaspoon coconut sugar or use a flavored Greek yogurt instead of plain.

  23. Amber  February 13, 2017

    I used graham cracker crumbs with brown sugar and coconut oil for the crust. Turned out great! definitely needed 5 – 10 minutes out of the freezer before eating. Really hard to eat otherwise.

    • Gale Compton  February 13, 2017

      Amber, You’re right about that. The recipe has been updated. Thank you!

  24. Chelsea  February 20, 2017

    I wonder if you could substitute with granola on the bottom

    • Gale Compton  February 20, 2017

      Chelsea, Granola should work, although it may not hold together as well once thawed. Keep us posted! 🙂

  25. Michelle  July 17, 2017

    how about regular olive oil instead of the “coconut oil”?

    • Gale Compton  July 18, 2017

      Michelle, Definitely! The taste won’t be quite as sweet.

  26. Kristin  August 28, 2017

    Made as directed and they were a hit with the kiddos! My 5 yo was almost able to do the whole thing by herself.

  27. Cecilia  September 20, 2017

    Can the raspberries be frozen? I have to buy frozen ones for another recipe anyway and if I buy both frozen and fresh I feel like it will be a waste. And thanks for the great recipe ^^

    • Gale Compton  September 21, 2017

      Cecilia, Sure, frozen and thawed works fine. Just be sure to drain the liquid before using. Thanks so much and thrilled you enjoy our recipes. 🙂

  28. Heather M.  September 29, 2017

    I made these a couple of days ago…used cashews because I was out of almonds and made them in a mini muffin tin…they are delicious!!

  29. Tamara  October 5, 2017

    I cheated and used crushed Graham cracker (all I had on hand), omitted the sugar. They look so pretty, can’t wait for the kids to try them after school! Super quick and easy to make!

    • Gale Compton  October 5, 2017

      Tamara, I’m sure the kids will love the FroYo Berry recipe. Keep us posted. 🙂

      • tamara  October 6, 2017

        These are so, completely, delicious! My kids loved them. Going to make them for all the kids this weekend!

        • Gale Compton  October 9, 2017

          Tamara, YEAH!!! Thanks so much for the feedback. So happy you’re kids enjoy them. 🙂

  30. Kristen  March 23, 2018

    If you have leftovers do you put it back in the freezer??

  31. Henri  May 15, 2018

    I have just made these delicious treat. But after 6 hours in the freezer it took over 45 minutes to be edible. And today is a very hot day here in the netherlands. They really need to go in the freezer and not fridge? Because it feels like eating ice cream..

    • Gale Compton  May 16, 2018

      Henri, I recommend allowing them to set out of the freezer for a few minutes before eating. 🙂

  32. karen randolph  April 15, 2019

    How long (extended period of time) do these keep in freezer? I was hoping for a month??

    • Nichole Furlong  April 17, 2019

      About three weeks or almost a month as long as they are kept in a well-sealed container.
