These frozen yogurt cups are some of the easiest treats I’ve ever made. They require very few ingredients, but they deliver a big payoff in refreshment.
The first time I tried to make them, I started out by spraying the inside of the muffin tin with nonstick spray. They were okay, but the spray made them a tad oily.
So I decided to try another method. I placed the muffin tin in warm water to melt the yogurt enough to remove them. That worked, but the yogurt melted too quickly.
After looking around at different solutions, I figured muffin liners would be the answer. Unfortunately, the paper liners stuck to the yogurt, and who wants to eat paper? Not me.
I finally figured out what to do. Silicone liners make it easy to remove the yogurt from the muffin tin, but they don’t stick to the yogurt once it’s frozen. I also like the little crinkles around the perimeter of the yogurt.
Benefits of Yogurt
According to Medical News Today, yogurt is an excellent source of protein and calcium. It also provides the good bacteria that keeps your digestive system running smoothly.
Frozen Yogurt Cups Ingredients
Of course, you’ll need some yogurt. After all, this is frozen yogurt. You can use any flavor, but since I wanted to add chocolate, I used vanilla.
You’ll also need whatever you plan to add. Finally, I highly recommend using silicone liners.
This time, I used regular yogurt, and I like the way the frozen yogurt cups turned out.
However, they had the icy consistency of popsicles. If you prefer more of a dense ice cream texture, use Greek yogurt.
How to Make Frozen Yogurt Cups
Place the silicone liners in a muffin tin to help them hold their shape. Scoop the yogurt into each cup until they’re about 3/4 full.
Drop a dollop of chocolate or whatever flavor of syrup you choose into the middle of the yogurt.
With a blunt knife or spoon, swirl the syrup into the yogurt. Place the tin of yogurt in the freezer and give it a couple of hours to freeze.
You should be able to remove the silicone very easily. Put it on plate or in bowls and serve alone or with your favorite cookies.
Refreshing Dessert or Treat
These frozen yogurt cups are refreshing after a big family dinner—especially something like this flavorful ground beef stroganoff. We also like it after eating this scrumptious cheesy zucchini ham bake.
Or if you simply want a mid-morning or afternoon pick-me-up, it’s tasty. The kids will love it as an after-school snack.
