Calling all blueberry lovers……Here’s a super easy to make, fun and delicious snack for you. All you need is two ingredients: blueberries and yogurt. Frozen Blueberries With Greek Yogurt is a super healthy and creative idea.
I recommend using greek yogurt for this recipe because it has a thicker texture to cover the blueberries and will also freeze well. Oh my goodness! This is really a yummy treat. At home we love love love berries.
Did you know Blueberries are not only popular, but also repeatedly ranked in the U.S. diet as having one of the highest antioxidant capacities among all fruits, vegetables, spices and seasonings? Antioxidants are essential to optimizing health by helping to combat the free radicals that can damage cellular structures as well as DNA. This little fruit softens dry skin, boosts your brain, and may even prevent cancer!
Greek yogurt is made from a highly concentrated form of milk, so you’re actually getting more calcium per mouthful than you would if you drank a glass of fresh milk. The composition of Greek yogurt averages at about 20 percent calcium, making it an effective bone strengthener. “Greek yogurt has double the protein of most regular yogurts,” Bonnie Taub-Dix, a New York-based nutrition expert explained. “An 8-ounce cup has as much protein as a 3-ounce chicken cutlet!” In addition to being a key nutrient in building and maintaining your muscle mass, including protein in every meal it can also keep you full longer.
