If you're looking for a healthy kid-friendly frozen treat then these frozen rhubarb and fromage frais hearts are perfect. They're great for snacks as well as dessert and easy to adapt too!
I was seduced online by some very similar looking hearts to these a couple of weeks ago on My Fussy Eater. They were strawberry flavoured and I'm sure they tasted amazing. I didn't have any strawberries but I couldn't resist making some similar frozen heart snacks with stewed rhubarb.
I'd stewed the rhubarb with some cinnamon and sugar and it was sitting in the fridge waiting for me to do something with it. The fromage frais was in tubes doing exactly the same. Both would have been delicious just as they were but putting them together like this needed so little effort it was hard to say no.
If I hadn't had a silicon hearts mould I wouldn't have been able to make them look quite so cute but it doesn't need to stop you making them. You can just freeze these frozen rhubarb snacks in a lollipop mould.
You don't really need a recipe for these and there are so many possible variations depending on what fruit, fromage frais or yogurt you use, but I've included the recipe card further down the post anyway.
Ingredient notes for frozen yogurt fromage frais hearts
These simple frozen snacks have just two ingredients! They are so simple you don't need a recipe but if want to play around with the ingredients here are some things to think about
- Fromage frais - You can use any flavour of fruity fromage frais or even natural Greek yogurt for these.
- Stewed rhubarb - I love rhubarb and often get it and stew it when it's in season. However, if you don't have stewed rhubarb you can replace it with a different stewed fruit.
How do you make these fromage frais hearts?
Firstly, you need a mould to freeze them in. If you don't have a heart-shaped mould, you can use an ice cube tray. Or you can freeze them in ice lolly moulds.
Put a teaspoon of stewed rhubarb in the bottom of each shape. Top with a teaspoon of fromage frais. Cover the top with cling film to keep them clean as they freeze.
How long do they keep for?
Once they are frozen they will keep in the freezer for quite a long time. It's best to eat them within three months though.
How do you eat these frozen fromage frais snacks?
I don't mind popping them straight into my mouth, just as I would with frozen yogurt bark, but I do know some children might not be so brave!
Frozen Rhubarb and Fromage Frais Hearts
- 200 ml Fromage Frais
- 200 g stewed rhubarb
- Put a teaspoonful of stewed fruit into the bottom of each shape in a silicon mould.
- Top with a teaspoonful of fromage frais or yoghurt. I used tubes of fromage frais which made it easy to squeeze it directly into the moulds but using a spoon would work just as well too.
