I seriously can’t get enough fruit this time of year. If you think I’m exaggerating, I’m not. I had a strawberry smoothie for breakfast, watermelon for mid-morning snack, cherries with my lunch and now I’m eating these Cherry Coconut Yogurt Bites. Oh, and I may make a peach salad for dessert.
After the long NY winters, I get tired of kale and sweet potatoes and long for summer seasonal fruit. So when this month’s Recipe ReDux challenge was to “Show us your healthy small bite dessert creation,” in honor of the Recipe ReDux’s 6th birthday, I knew that I MUST feature seasonal summer fruit.Take advantage of summer seasonal stone fruit with these Cherry Coconut Yogurt Bites!

This little bite combines the sweetness of cherries with the richness of coconut yogurt. It’s just 3 simple ingredients and doesn’t require any baking. Feel free to involve the kids too, and they won’t even know they are eating a totally healthy dessert.
Cherry Coconut Yogurt Bites
- 1/2 cup cherries pitted
- 2 5.3 ounce containers coconut flavored Greek or Skyr Yogurt
- 1 tablespoon agave
In a food processor, puree the cherries.
In a small bowl, mix together the yogurt and agave.
Using a muffin tin, add a spoonful of yogurt mixture to one of the muffin holes. Add a spoonful of cherries on top of the yogurt mixture. Cover with another spoonful of yogurt.
(Optional) Sprinkle with coconut flakes.
Freeze for at least 2 hours.
