Ingredients
  • 1 cup Greek style plain whole milk yogurt or coconut yogurt (if you have plain whole milk yogurt you can make it Greek style by straining it in a thin cloth for a few hours - the liquid strained off is whey you can use for soaking grains or adding to smoothies, and the thick yogurt behind is "Greek yogurt")
  • 3-4 TB grassfed collagen (optional)
  • 2 TB raw honey or pure maple syrup (optional - if you are trying this with toddlers I would definitely leave this out - the blueberries are sweet enough for those young taste palates!)
  • 1 - 1½ cups fresh blueberries
Instructions
  1. Mix the Greek yogurt, collagen, and honey in a bowl and fold in the blueberries.
  2. Scoop the yogurt covered blueberries out individually onto a silpat or parchment paper lined baking sheet.
  3. Transfer the sheet of yogurt covered blueberries to the freezer for at least an hour to freeze and then transfer the frozen yogurt covered blueberries to a freezer bag to store in the freezer.

    I really love this idea. I have gelatin but not collagen on hand…do you think gelatin would work? Thanks!

      Hi Jennifer! I think the gelatin might make the yogurt a little gummy – I would just simply leave it out! I added it in there for extra nutrition but it isn’t needed for the recipe to work.

    This looks fantastic! I have the last of the blueberries we picked this summer in the freezer and I’ve been looking for something fun to do with them. Do you think it would work with blueberries that are already frozen? Or will they be too mushy/juicy? Thanks!

    • Reply Renee Kohley October 3, 2016 at 12:47 pm

      Hi Mila! I do think that they would work – just keep them frozen to do the dipping and put them right back in the freezer!
