Frozen Yogurt Bites

I took a quick trip to Austin Sunday for a CAbi show on Monday night. It was a great excuse to get out of town. My mom and sister drove and met me to turn it into a girl's trip. We had a blast Christmas shopping and spending some quality time together! We did some damage at the Domain in Austin. It was a really fun place.

My husband and I love ice cream. We don't eat a lot of dessert but we do like a little bite of something sweet after dinner. Usually I will buy a pint of ice cream and it will last us about 1-2 weeks. Sometimes though we will get a major sweet tooth and it will last only a few days. In those times I wish for something healthier to cure our sweet tooth. These frozen yogurt bites were really good! I highly recommend them if you are a fellow ice cream lover!

Frozen Yogurt Bites
7 graham cracker cookies
6 Tbsp almond Butter
4 1/2 Tbsp honey
about 2 cups of flavor yogurt - I used greek strawberry, blueberry and pomegranate
Optional: fresh fruit to garnish
In a food processor blend graham crackers into fine crumbs.
Add in honey and almond butter. Blend until it is dough like in texture.

Place about 1 Tbsp or so of the "dough" in the bottom of greased muffin tins. You can use the mini muffin tins, but I don't have that size so I used the regular.
Use the back of a spoon to press the dough into the bottom, creating a crust. 
I have this nifty pastry presser that I got in my stocking one year. I thought my mom was crazy, I would never use this thing! Turn out keep finding new uses for it!
Spoon about 2-3 Tbsp of yogurt onto each crust. I used 3 individual yogurt containers and made 4 of each flavor. 
I had pomegranates and grapes in the fridge so I decided to fancy up these guys with some fresh fruit. You could use strawberries and blueberries too. The fruit doesn't have to correspond to the flavor of yogurt, mixing it up is good!
Place in the freezer for at least 6 hours to freeze these treats.

They will easily remove for you to eat as soon as they are ready!

Then place the extras in a airtight container and keep in the freezer for occasional healthy snacking!
