There’s nothing better than a frozen treat on a hot day, especially they don’t need to leave you feeling guilty. These frozen yogurt berry bites are easy to make, cute as can be, and low in fat and calories.

If you are looking for ways to get your kids into the kitchen, these are simple enough for older children to make on their own. Small children can help you make them by stirring the ingredients together, spooning the mixture into the muffin cups, and choosing their favorite berries to use.
