Frozen Lemon Meringue Pie Bites



One of my favorite desserts is lemon meringue pie...I love the fabulous fluffy top and the delicious lemon filling that isn't too overly sweet.  These frozen little bites are a healthy and fun alternative and perfect for keeping on hand if you're craving something a little different.  They keep well in the freezer and use only a few simple ingredients too!

Here's what you'll need:
  • Lemon Greek yogurt
  • Cool Whip (use lighter varieties to keep calories down if needed)
  • Graham crackers
  • 3 sandwich bags
  • Foil covered cookie sheet that fits in the freezer
  • Kitchen mallet
  • Spoons
  • Scissors



Step 1: Cover a cookie sheet with foil.  Open yogurt and stir well.

Step 2: Spoon into a sandwich bag.

Step 3: Snip the corner and squirt into 1 inch blobs onto cookie sheet in evenly spaced rows.


Step 4: Prep the Cool Whip the same way (spoon into bag, seal, and snip corner).

Step 5: Squirt on top on each yogurt drop...to get that pointy peak on top, make the bag go straight upwards each time.

Step 6: With a kitchen mallet, place graham crackers into sandwich bag and crush into a rough powder.  Sprinkle a pinch of graham powder on each one.  Freeze overnight, peel foil off the backs of the bites and store in airtight container...enjoy!

Frozen Key Lime Pie Yogurt Bites!


I'm always on the lookout for easy and healthier snacks.  Key lime frozen yogurt bites are fast to make and fun, plus kids love to squirt the yogurt too!  You can try experimenting with different flavors too for a variety of snack choices...enjoy! 


Step 1: Gather up all of your ingredients & supplies: 
  • Key lime flavored yogurt (I used Greek yogurt)
  • Graham crackers
  • A kitchen mallet
  • A spoon
  • 2 sandwich bags
  • Scissors
  • Tin foil
  • Cookie sheet (or flat surface that can fit in the freezer)
  • Air tight storage container

Step 2: Place graham crackers in one of the sandwich bags and seal closed.  Crush into a rough powder with mallet.  Set aside.

Step 3: Cover pan with tin foil (important step as it will allow you to easily peel the bites off after they freeze).  Using a spoon throughly stir the yogurt.  Scoop into bag, let all air out of the bag and seal closed.


Step 4: With scissors, snip a small corner off of the sandwich bag.

Step 5: Carefully squirt yogurt onto pan, each one being an equal size drop and evenly spaced apart.

Step 6: Sprinkle a pinch of graham cracker powder on top of each yogurt drop.  Place pan in freezer.  I let mine set overnight.  Peel foil from yogurt bites and place them in an airtight container in the freezer.  Enjoy!
