Once the warmer begins we can't wait to get our hands on some yummy frozen treat to cool us off, but why wait for the warmer whether? You can have a healthy frozen dessert whenever you want! My secret is using plain Greek yogurt for many healthy frozen treats.
My kids love anything frozen, preferably ice cream. So when I saw this idea for frozen yogurt dots on Pinterest I knew I had to make them! I knew this would be a win if I could get them to think they were eating ice cream dots!
One Good Thing made them with store bought yogurt, but of course I didn't want to make them with that because of all the sugar, so I made my own recipe.
They loved them! I gave them each a spoon and a small bowl full and they were super happy! They thought they were eating ice cream dots, ha!
My sweet son took this pic since I was busy 🙂
They look like little white chocolate candy!
So fun don't you think?
Feel like making mini pops? Try my Orange Vanilla Frozen Yogurt Mini Pops or Chocolate Frozen yogurt or if you need dairy free then try my Peanut Butter Toffee "Ice Cream".
Notes: To make this sugar-free just remove the honey and add 1 teaspoon liquid vanilla stevia!
- •1 cup Greek yogurt, plain
- •¼ cup honey
- •1 teaspoon vanilla extract
- Mix yogurt and honey together in a bowl.
- Add vanilla and mix until smooth.
- Pour mixture into a Ziploc bag.
- Line a baking sheet with wax paper.
- Make a small snip at the end of the baggie. Squeeze drops onto wax paper.
- Freeze for about 30 -45 minutes until hard.
Do these have to be served immediately or can they be stored in the freezer?
I've kept them frozen for a few days covered in an air tight container.
Can I use regular fat free yogurt instead of Greek? That's what I have on hand and I really want to make these!
I'm sure it would work just fine too.

Yum! I'm definitely trying this.. adding some raw cacao powder to make them chocolate. 🙂 I must confess that I loveee toddler yogurt melts!!
hi, can i know, regular yogurt example nestle yogurt, using make yogurt drop???
I was a WW leader and recipe builder adds PPV to even fruits and veggies because it does not know whether they have been cooked or not. Fruits and veggies are "0 PPV" when they are "fresh"! In your recipe that included a banana, you would only count the PPV of the peanut butter. I hope this helps you Charlotte Moore.
Did you use dairy free Greek yogurt? Or was it regular? Wondering if you could also use homemade coconut yogurt?
No it is regular Greek yogurt, nonfat. I never had coconut yogurt, i don't know the consistency but you could try it.
Plain Greek yOgurt has 9g of sugar in one cup. This is not a sugar free recipe!!
I don't see anywhere I have written that this is a sugar free recipe. This has honey which is a natural sugar and not refined. Yes plain yogurt has its own sugars.
My 2 year old is crazy for her "ogurt treats"! I think I'll lower the honey amount next time bc she won't know the difference. This is such a wonderful near mess-less option for yogurt!
Can't wait to try these. Love the vanilla yogurt idea and the chocolate idea. Do you think you could use Stevia instead of honey? I'm new at this sugar-free thing. Just discovered your site and know I will be coming back to it often. Thanks!
Thank you! I'm sure you could use the vanilla stevia, but I chose honey because my kids love it in yogurt and so do I.
Hi there, I made these today and the kids loved them, instead of the honey, which is approx 58percent sugar, I used 1/2 cup of dextrose which is pure glucose, (no fructose) and 2 teaspoons of cocoa. They were great, the kids thought they were eating frozen chocolate drops. Brilliant :-))
Sorry to mention again about the points, but fresh fruit is 0 points now. At least that is what we are told at the meetings. Also the info in WW literature says that also.
no fresh fruit in this recipe, oh you are talking about the peanut butter toffee? Right, I will fix that, thanks!
I originally just used my tracker instead of the recipe builder online and guess what? The recipe builder online made it to be 6 points! even showing banana as 0 points and peanut butter as 3! That's a great question to ask at a meeting because I have no idea why.
oh, I am SO making these this weekend using a fresh batch of homemade greek yogurt I just made! Thanks for such a great idea!
These are so creative! Look delicious and are a light healthy treat I"m looking forward to! So fun to find your blog 🙂

You are simply brilliant! I am making these tomorrow!
YOU Are simply the sweetest!
These do look like white chocolate melts.
I was looking back at the toffee ice cream recipe. How can it be 5 Points Plus when all there is to count is the peanut butter? I thought 1 T. was 3 PP. It really does look like ice cream. I always have frozen bananas.
you need to count the banana as well 🙂
The such a cool idea i cant wait to try them
