Orange Frozen Yogurt Bites

Lately it seems like all I’ve been posting is sweet, decadent food that is covered in chocolate.  But hey, it’s the holidays, right?  Well not for long, and once the big day is over most people put their minds to cleaning up their diet and fresh beginnings.  Luckily healthy eating doesn’t have to feel like a chore when you balance the good with the not so good, and I have a super easy recipe that balances both!  This combines fresh Halos oranges, Greek yogurt, pie crust and a hint of vanilla for a delicious snack perfect for keeping your diet in check!

Orange Frozen Yogurt Bites

Here is what you need:

  • 4 Halos oranges
  • Greek yogurt
  • 1/2 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1/2 stick butter or butter substitute
  • 1 cup flour
  • 2 tbsp chilled water
  • muffin pan

The first thing you want to do is make your crust.  Remember when I said the key was to balance the good and bad?  Well this part is the latter.  They are delicious, but they are made with butter.  There are tons of “better” butters out there, so go ahead and use whatever brand you’d like and it will still turn out delicious!  If you don’t want to make your own crusts, you can buy pre-made crusts at almost any grocery store.

So to make your crusts preheat your oven to 350 and combine the butter, flour and water in a bowl and mix it all together with a fork.  When it starts coming together scoop it up (with clean hands) and knead it into a smooth dough ball.  Roll it out pretty thin and cut into circles.  Press into your muffin cups and pop them into the oven for 15 minutes.  When they come out they will be light and flaky.

While your shells are cooking you can make your yogurt mixture.  I use Greek yogurt but feel free to use any kind you like.  Empty two single serving containers into a bowl, add 1/4 tsp vanilla extract and 3 cut up Halo oranges.  Mix and freeze.  If you don’t want your treats frozen, they will be just as good left in the fridge, too!  When your shells are finished let them cool and then fill with your yogurt mixture.  Top with a few more orange slices and serve!

Doesn’t that look delicious?!  If shells aren’t your thing, you can always eat the yogurt by the spoonful!
