These cute little frozen yogurt hearts are perfect for making with young children. They are so easy to make and are a great sweet treat for Valentine's Day!
Valentine's day is just around the corner and if you're anything like me, you don't have the time to spend hours in the kitchen preparing sweet treats for your loved ones. Even so, you will want to surprise them with something. So how about something like these frozen yogurt hearts?
These frozen yogurt hearts have just 2 ingredients!
They are the simplest of Valentine's recipes. So simple in fact that you don't even need to read the recipe at all, although I have included it at the end of this post, just in case!
I made three different flavours and each one contains just 2 ingredients. They are plain yogurt and strawberry jam, plain yogurt and blackcurrant jam, and plain yogurt and apricot jam.
An easy recipe
You get the idea. These these frozen yogurt hearts really could not be easier. Well, actually they could. Flavoured yogurt. Just one ingredient!
Why not make them with your kids?
However, if you want to make these with your children then mixing up the jam and yogurt together first is all part of the fun. As is choosing which flavoured jam to use.
It really is a great foodie messy play activity for children. Children are also much more likely to enjoy eating a recipe they've helped to prepare. Not that eating these sweet frozen snacks is likely to a problem for most kids!
Can you adapt the recipe for these yogurt and jam hearts?
This recipe is super simple but you can still adapt it. As I said already, freezing flavoured yogurt in these heart-shaped moulds is also a great snack for kids. If you don't want to use yogurt but still want a fairly healthy snack then why not try using quark?
Quark is virtually fat free and high in protein but without the tang that yogurt has. If your children are not always so keen on yogurt then it would be the perfect alternative.
How do you eat these yogurt hearts?
I just pop a few out the mould and put them in a bowl. You can serve them on their own or with fruit. I think they are brilliant with sliced bananas and fresh berries.
Are they a snack or dessert?
I think that these yogurt treats are great at any time of day. They are great as a snack if you are at home. They are a delicious dessert too. What's more, as they are fairly healthy, why not have them for breakfast? After all, we often eat yogurt for breakfast so why not frozen yogurt?
What mould to use for frozen yogurt hearts?
Once the yogurt and jam have been mixed together, you just need to spoon the mixture into a suitable silicone mould. It's then really easy to then peel it back to get the frozen yogurt hearts out afterwards.
If you don't have a silicone mould, you could use an ice cube tray instead. However, if you are looking for an excuse to go out and buy a silicone heart-shaped mould then these frozen yogurt shapes are definitely the excuse you're looking for.
Can you put them on sticks?
If you want to make these frozen treats easier to eat then just freeze them in an ice lolly mould. They are cute as hearts but they don't have to be hearts. Frozen yogurt lollies are easier to eat on the move too. You don't need to put them in a bowl like you do with the hearts!
