AB&J Froyo Bites

Froyo Bites is a delish dedication to Almond Butter (replacing peanut butter for paleos!) and only two other ingredients that are a perfect match – jelly and yogurt.  Serve for a frozen treat your next summer cocktail party.

Meet Froyo Bites and Personally Paleo!

While Alana is lounging in the sun drinking a cocktail from a coconut (or at least I hope she is!) I am beyond excited to be sharing this recipe with all of you!

Hi friends! I’m Katie from over at Personally Paleo, where I blog about all things paleo and gluten free, travel and fitness. I like to make eating real food realistic and real fun. There’s nothing I love more than socializing with my friends, which is why I love the appetizers and drinks Alana shares with you here! I love checking out her shareable plates and seeing if I can make them gluten free (if they aren’t already!) like her McMac Burger sliders. Because let’s be real, the only thing better than burgers are the fries they get served with.

Why Almond Butter is the (paleo & GF) shiz.

Another obsession of mine is almond butter. Since peanuts aren’t actually nuts (they’re legumes!) they aren’t paleo friendly and sadly for me, my body doesn’t digest them real well. After I spent about 42 hours crying when I discovered this, I went on a mission to Whole Foods to find something that makes me just as happy and was paleo friendly. And that’s how almond butter became a part of my life. I bought it, we jetted off and are now we are living happily ever after.

Whether you are team almond butter, peanut butter, or any other of the millions of nut butters, the one undeniable thing is how freaking good they are when you combine them with jelly. Since I can’t create a traditional PB&J sandwich whenever I get a craving, I like experimenting with other dishes that combine these two flavors, like my gluten free “PB&J” pockets. Think “Uncrustables,” but made with almond butter!

I’m obsessed with freshly ground almond butter and love to make mine myself, so I tend to use that for this recipe.  When it comes to jelly or jam, sooo many of them have added sugars. Who knows why since fruit is the shiz on it’s own! If I’m feeling REAL motivated, I like to cook down a bunch of raspberrys into a jam myself.

But when I’m feeling lazy (more often than not) I pick up St. Dalfour brand which is made with 100% fruit.  If you can’t find it instore, you can buy it online at Thrive Market (http://thrv.me/rMZFVG)!

The basics behind Froyo Bites.

This time, I’m combining these two flavors with yogurt to make a really simple, three step delicious frozen treat! Perfect for a paleo friendly/gluten free treat at your next dinner party or snacks at a summer gathering. You can eat these froyo bites right when you take them out for a super crunchy treat or let them rest for about 2 minutes so they start to soften. Don’t wait too long otherwise they’ll melt into a big yogurt-y AB&J pile… but even that sounds delicious to eat!

Instructions
  1. Place tin foil or silicone muffin cups inside 2 muffin trays.
  2. In a large bowl, add in yogurt, almond butter and maple syrup. Stir until fully combined.
  3. Then, using a cookie scoop, place a scoop of yogurt in the bottom of each muffin cup. Start by doing the first 12 and then go from there to ensure you have enough.
  4. Carefully drop 1-2 tsp of jelly in the center of the muffin tin.
  5. Use the cookie scoop to drop another scoop of yogurt on top of the jelly. It should fully cover the jelly.
  6. Place in freezer until hardened or about 4 hours. These can be stored here as long as they are in an airtight seal.
Recipe Notes

Notes: If you prefer a softer bite, let rest out of the freezer for 1-2 mins before eating. They melt if left out longer so place them back in the freezer if they soften too much.
