Froyo Bears – frozen yogurt bites

I always order seedless watermelons, but when I cut open this one, it was heavily seeded. I didn’t want to take out all the seeds for my toddler, so I decided to blend it up (with seeds) and make froyo bites. Honestly, I was a bit skeptical about the watermelon and yogurt combo, but oh boy. It’s refreshing and delicious.

These froyo bites quickly melt in the mouth, unlike ice, so I don’t worry too much about them being a choking hazard. However, you can use a bigger size mold if you feel safer that way. I like that these are small bites so that my toddler can finish them before dripping all over the floor. I take out 2 to 3 at a time from the freezer to prevent them from melting.

I’ve shared a couple more froyo bear ideas on Instagram before, and they have been so popular. I included all three of the recipes in this post. Please let me know which one is your favorite!
