Well, here we are—summer! It’s time again for beautiful warm weather, nice evening walks, sunny days at the beach, and of course food! Summer, like any other season, has food that goes along with it: ice cream, popsicles, hot dogs and hamburgers, and delicious summer desserts at barbeques and the Fourth of July. One thing is for sure: summer is a time for cool, sweet, and delicious treats, but it’s hard to come across treats that are a bit more nutritious than a double scoop of ice cream.
Enter moringa and yogurt-covered frozen blueberries! They’re cool and sweet, but have the added benefit of greek yogurt and of course, moringa! Plus, they’re super easy and fun to make with ingredients you probably already have at home.
Here’s what you’ll need:
-Greek yogurt of your choosing (one standard 5.3 oz cup will make quite a few!)
-1 teaspoon to 1 tablespoon of Kuli Kuli Moringa Powder (I used a whole serving of 1 tablespoon, but feel free to play with it!)
To begin, rinse the blueberries and set them aside. Empty the greek yogurt into another bowl and mix if it has fruit in it. I chose a raspberry greek yogurt that needed stirring.
Add the moringa powder and mix it in thoroughly.
Now, stick a toothpick into a blueberry and swirl it around the yogurt and moringa mixture until it is completely covered. It’s not so easy at first, but you get the hang of it!
Use another toothpick to slide the blueberry onto a plate or baking sheet and keep on swirling blueberries in the mixture until you’re satisfied or run out of blueberries or yogurt!
Place the moringa and yogurt covered blueberries into the freezer for at least 2-3 hours or until they are frozen. At that time you can pop them off the plate or baking sheet into a bag or container. However, they will thaw and start to melt so I recommend keeping them in the freezer until you are ready to eat them!
So there you have it: a delicious and nutritious summer treat!
