Frozen yogurt in shapes that will make your dessert the talk of the party! So yummy, so cute -- and best of all, so easy!
For all of you who love to play with your food, there’s now a fun idea for how to play with your frozen
food –- these cute Fro-Yo Cut Out Desserts
The “recipe” is simple. Just grab a few cartons of Yoplait’s new frozen yogurt (the peach Greek yogurt version is my fave!), stir it into an even layer, refreeze, and then use your favorite cookie cutters to make frozen yogurt cut outs!
I went the yellow rubber duckie route, in honor of the many baby showers I keep attending lately. But you could easily color and shape the yogurt into whatever theme you’d like! Think pink hearts for a bridal shower or Mother’s Day, green trees for the holidays, angels, ponies, stars – or any cookie cutter shape at all!
These fun treats are sure to be the talk of any party. Here’s the how to!
Line a 9x13-inch (or 9x9-inch) baking pan with parchment paper. Then get your favorite flavor of Yoplait frozen yogurt ready to go. (I love the peach!)
Transfer yogurt to a large mixing bowl and let sit and room temp for 15-20 minutes until softened. If you’d like to color the yogurt, add in some gel food coloring to your desired shade and stir to combine.
Transfer the yogurt to your lined pan, and use a rubber spatula to smooth it out to form a nice even layer. Pop it back in the freezer for a few hours until solid.
Remove the pan and carefully lift out the parchment paper and yogurt. Transfer to a cutting board for easy cutting.
Use a cookie cutter to quickly cut out your desired shapes. If you have trouble lifting them off the parchment, you can use a spatula.
Then transfer your cut outs to your serving dish. (The yogurt will stay frozen longer if you chill the dishes for at least 5-10 minute beforehand in the freezer.) Serve immediately and enjoy!
