Summer is coming, so that means my oven is staying off and I’m whipping up all the no-bake treats and snacks possible. I plan to enjoy everything sweet and delicious from an indulgent icebox cake to a creamy fruit and yogurt parfait featuring my favorite summer fruits.

On the hottest days of the summer, however, I’m usually reaching for more refreshing treats to keep me cool throughout the day. So when nutrition student @joey_wellness posted a video on Instagram featuring a recipe for kiwi frozen yogurt bites, I immediately bookmarked the post to try later on. The recipe is super simple to make (you could argue, but it couldn’t be simpler!) and you only need two ingredients to make it. And the best part is, it only takes minutes to put together (including a few hours of hands-off chilling time).

Simply start by washing and drying a few kiwis — peeling optional — and blend them in a food processor with optional salt, raw honey, and coconut oil. While the coconut oil is optional, he recommends adding it for some healthy fats. You’ll then mix the puréed kiwi with some Greek yogurt, and drop the mixture in one-tablespoon bites on a parchment-lined baking sheet, keeping the bites as separate as possible. Freeze for two to four hours, and that’s it!

Personally, I love that these frozen yogurt bites use fresh fruit and yogurt instead of ice cream. Don’t get me wrong — I am here for all of the ice cream, but I love having this option for a protein-rich snack (or, hey, even breakfast!).

This is also a super-versatile recipe, as you can use any fruit you’d like. So, if kiwis aren’t your thing, you can use Joey’s recipe to create mango and strawberry (or any berry!) frozen yogurt bites bites instead.
