Five Favorite snacks. Easy pleasers to throw in your freezer or your pantry. I'm finding that accessibility are key to snack time, so I am trying harder to have good choices at the ready.
I recently rediscovered the idea of frozen grapes when they were served at a meeting. How did I forget about these? I cannot tell you how refreshing a handful of frozen grapes were last week when it was so hot outside. De-stem, wash, throw 'em in a Ziploc freezer bag and you've got a snack.
Frozen Yogurt Bites
Again, could snacking get any easier? And how on earth didn't I ever think of this before I saw it on Pinterest? Duh. I really need to broaden my horizons.
I tried it with both vanilla and strawberry yogurt and they were an instant hit with the family.
I bought big containers of yogurt, lined my cookie sheet with wax paper and then drop the yogurt by dollops on the wax paper. Pop it in the freezer for a couple hours and then easily pull them off the wax paper and put in Ziploc to store in freezer.
A little bit of an indulgent splurge, but I figure it's worth it in order to avoid the potato chips. These are even a hit with the kids, so sometimes I have been known to hide them a little in the pantry.
Hey, don't judge, you do it too. My favorite flavors are the Ranch, Sweet Chili and Chocolate.
I made a batch of these and practically had to snatch them out of everyone's hands to save a few to freeze. Easy to make, then I froze them on a cookie sheet (I was afraid the jelly would run too much if I just stuck them in a Ziploc bag) and then bagged them a little later.
I don't have a photo for some reason, but I'm guessing it's because we are too busy consuming them that I forgot. I've made these several times and every time they turn out well, PERFECT. I double the recipe so we have a bunch to eat over a few days and still have more to put in the freezer.
