Frozen Yogurt Trail Mix Bars
I have made a big change this past year in my life when it comes to my health. I have made a pledge to myself to exercise daily. And, let me tell you – I feel so much better since I kept this pledge to myself. Not only do I feel great, but I’ve even lost some weight along the way…
50 pounds GONE, my friends!! I’ve gone from a size 18 to a size 8 – woot, woot!
I lost all that weight by simply adding exercise into my daily routine. Since I’ve been exercising, I’ve been eating more types of food that give me a little energy boost before I hope on my treadmill. Granola bars are a big one, but the weather is hot now – so I’ve been on the lookout for a granola bar like food that can cool me down.
Enter these delicious frozen yogurt trail mix bars – packed with fruit, grains, & nuts.
These little bars are simply amazing. I love them and my kids love them too. Both healthy & delicious – total win, win in my book!
Here’s what you need:
Mix together the vanilla yogurt, diced up fruit (I use a mixture of strawberries & blueberries), sliced almonds, granola, & chocolate chips.
Line a 9×9 dish with tinfoil, and spread the yogurt mixture inside. Freeze for several hours until frozen & firm.
Once frozen, remove the tinfoil & yogurt bars from the dish.
Slice into bars, and store in a resealable container in the freezer.
Frozen Yogurt Trail Mix Bars

Any tips on how to get them out of the pan? I did this and when I went to remove them, the tinfoil just ripped. :o(
Maybe dip it in hot water or wrap a hot, wet dishtowel around the pan before removing the foil?
I haven’t tried these yet but was thinking of using wax or parchment paper instead of tinfoil.
Thank you, ladies! I’ll let you know how it works out. I did manage to get a little corner out of the pan and it was delicious!
Reynolds wrap makes a non stick foil. DOn’t know if it will work. Also maybe try just lining the pan with wax paper….
Sometimes if you let it set out for just a little bit it’ll lose it up enough the foil won’t stick so bad. (If not spray a little baker’s joy on the foil before you dump the ingredients in. Hope this helps! 🙂
Very nice recipe! I ll try it at home. I always love to try to
new recipe. Trail mix is one thing I always keep with me while
travelling, I prefer to have Gaia trail mix. Never thought I can make it
of my own!

We just took them out of the freezer, now how do you cut them?
Run a sharp knife under hot water & press straight down! If you have trouble, try pouring the mixture into cookie cutters or ice pop molds.
We took them out of the freezer but how do you cut them?
