MIXED BERRY FROZEN YOGURT TREATS (PALEO)

Now that temps are pushing the 80’s, I’m ready for all the refreshing chilled treats! These Mixed Berry Frozen Yogurt Treats are the perfect cooling snack for those hot afternoons. I imagine this is what you’d get if frozen yogurt and berry pie had a baby… pure deliciousness! Don’t worry, they may taste like a decadent dessert, but they’re low in sugar and carbs, high in protein and fiber, and full of antioxidants and healthy fats.

Collagen recommendations

For extra collagen protein plus joint health and beauty benefits, I added some Vital Proteins Mixed Berry Collagen. Omitting it will reduce the protein content by about 4 grams per serving, unless you substitute about 80 grams of whey, casein, or plant-based protein into the recipe (40 grams per layer). If you do add another protein powder, I would recommend using vanilla or another complementary flavor like blueberry muffin.

Making the almond flour crust

For the crust, I combined almond flour, dates, and enough water for everything to stick together. Super simple and so good! The dates can be substituted for three tablespoons of maple syrup if you prefer.

Making the berry filling

I separated the berry filling into two layers: a raspberry one and a blueberry one, but you can skip that step and blend all the filling ingredients into one layer if you like! I just did it because it looks pretty 😉 If you’re Paleo, substitute the nonfat plain Greek yogurt for a Paleo-approved coconut yogurt or make your own! I added some almond butter to the blueberry layer and some cashew butter to the raspberry layer, just for added thickness and decadence. You can leave these out to reduce the fat content, especially if using coconut yogurt, which is already higher in fat.

Sweetener substitutions

For extra sweetness without the added sugar, I used Pyure Organic Stevia Blend, a calorie-free blend of stevia and erythritol. A virtually identical substitute would be Truvia Natural Sweetener. If you substitute baking stevia, granulated erythritol, or granulated sugar like coconut sugar, you may need up to twice as much (one cup) to achieve the same level of sweetness. If using stevia extract or drops, please refer to the brand-specific conversion chart. Maple syrup or honey can also be used to taste.
