Protein Yogurt Fruit Kabobs

I’ve been doing a lot of dessert and snack type recipes lately because this seems to be the thing I get e-mailed about the most. Everyone has a sweet tooth. But how does one satisfy that craving and still eat clean?

There are endless possibilities! You just have to be creative! Or just come to my blog and I’ll help you 😉

If you have healthy snacks readily available, you will be less likely to snack on bad foods. I always like to have a freezer snack handy. I don’t keep ice cream in my house of course because it’s just me, but if you do have it in your home, it’s nice to open the freezer to a healthy sweet treat instead!

These fruit kabobs are so simple to make and do not require many ingredients or effort. Plus it’s on a stick! Don’t you just love foods on a stick? For some reason it always tastes better!

For this recipe you will need: 

-3/4 cup of plain greek yogurt
-1 Tablespoon of cacao powder (superfood!)
-1 scoop of strawberry protein powder (I use Jay Robb brand)
-1 tsp of vanilla extract
-1 cup of grapes
-1/2 cup of blueberries
-wood skewers

Start by mixing together the greek yogurt, cacao powder and protein powder

Mix this up (Greek yogurt is underneath)

Then mix in the vanilla (this has to be done after because the vanilla makes the powders clump)

I love vanilla extract in recipes!

Now just skewer your fruit to your liking! I did 5 or so grapes, then about 7 blueberries, and repeated until I filled the stick

I used grapes and blueberries because they were the easiest to skewer!

Dunk the tip in the yogurt bowl and then just paint the yogurt on. It’s too messy to dunk each piece of fruit individually and then skewer, so I like the painting method

Just slap it on, doesn't need to be perfect

Then all you do is line a baking sheet with tinfoil and lay them down!

Tinfoil is best for getting these off the pan after freezing

Pop in the freezer for about 90 minutes

I also did a few kiwi rounds as well. They weren't as stick friendly, so I just put them on the tray. Bananas would be good too

And then later you have a magical fruity yogurt snack!

I love frozen grapes anyway, but cover them in yogurt with some super foods and you have the perfect little pick me up for that sweet tooth. Good for gym recoveries!

The perfect frozen treat!

One of these skewers is ONLY 53 calories, 0.1 grams of fat, 2 grams of carbs, and 10.4 grams of protein.

That’s a lot of protein for one little stick! You can definitely eat 2 and double up that protein 🙂

It's like a super long popsicle!

Happy eating…
