Ingredients

  1. Greek Yogurt: It is the star of this recipe. Unsweetened Greek yogurt provides a thick, creamy and tangy base while boosting it with protein. Full-fat yogurt works best here, but you can also use 2 % Greek yogurt.

  2. Pomegranate Seeds: Fresh, sweet and juicy pomegranate seeds add nutrients, burst with sweetness, a touch of color, flavor, contrast, and some nice crunch.

  3. Sweetener: I have added a little bit of maple syrup for a touch of natural sweetness. You can also use honey for sweetener. Also, feel free to adjust the amount of sweetener according to your preferred level of sweetness.

  4. Dark Chocolate: The coating of dark chocolate gives this dessert a rich and decadent outer layer. For melted dark chocolate coating, I have used 85% dark chocolate. You can also use chocolate chips, milk chocolate, or even dark chocolate. The chocolate makes or breaks the taste of these bites, so make sure to choose high-quality dark chocolate.

  5. Coconut Oil: Just like Chocolate pomegranate Bites, I have also added a little bit of coconut oil while melting the dark chocolate in the microwave. It dilutes the thick consistency of chocolate and creates a smooth, glossy chocolate coating.

Variations

Greek Yogurt Pomegranate Bites without chocolate

If you don’t want an extra layer of chocolate, then feel free to skip the chocolate coating part. They will still taste so delicious, just like any frozen yogurt bark, or Froyo.

Coconut Yogurt Pomegranate Bites

Love tropical coconut flavors? Then you can try making this elegant coconutty version of these frozen bites. Simply swap Greek yogurt with coconut yogurt. For an added texture, you can also add some coconut flakes to the mixture before shaping them into coins.

Mixed Fruit Greek Yogurt Bites

Love relishing mixed fruit desserts like fruit rabri, sago fruit custard, fruit cream, fruit custard? Then you should try the mixed fruit variation of these frozen bites. Simply swap pomegranate seeds with chopped mixed fruits of your choice. You can use apples, pears, bananas, strawberries, mangoes, black grapes, green grapes, and blueberries.

Pomegranate Lemon Greek Yogurt Bites

Pomegranate and lemon go so well together; for this version, you can add a bit of lemon zest and a few drops of lemon extract for a refreshing lemony touch.

Professional tips & tricks to make the best Pomegranate Greek Yogurt Bites

  1. Chilled Yogurt: Use chilled yogurt before mixing and shaping. It helps in shaping.

  2. Pre-Freeze Yogurt Bite: Before coating these bites in chocolate, make sure to freeze these bites until they are firm. This pre-freezing helps in maintaining the yogurt mixture shape while the chocolate-dipping process.

  3. Pomegranate: Use fresh pomegranate seeds for making this recipe as they add a burst of juicy sweetness and a satisfying crunch.

  4. Other fruits: If you want to make these bites with other fruits, then feel free to swap pomegranate seeds with other fruits of your choice.

  5. Temper Chocolate: To get a smooth and glossy shine, consider tempering the chocolate with coconut oil.

  6. Citrus Zest: A touch of citrus zest enhances the overall flavor of these yogurt bites. So feel free to add some lemon or orange zest to the yogurt mixture.

  7. Different shapes: I have made simple coins; you can shape these bites into any molds of your choice. For example, you can freeze them in ice cube trays for individual, poppable servings. Tiny bite-sized desserts are a special hit at parties and get-togethers.
