Yogurt-Covered Blueberries

We all know fruit and yogurt go together as symbiotically as peanut butter and jelly. Here's a different way to enjoy the delicious fruit-yogurt combo: coat the fruit (in this case blueberries) in yogurt, freeze, then enjoy as a healthy snack. These are particularly delectable on a hot summer day. I also like to add them to my Special K cereal in the morning. Despite not being packed full of sugar or fried, Eric will snack on them by the handful. They're that good.

Line a baking sheet with waxed paper or parchment paper.

Skewer a blueberry on a toothpick, dip the berry into the yogurt, and then use a second toothpick to push the blueberry onto the baking sheet. Repeat with the rest of your blueberries. Place the baking sheet in the freezer for at least 3 hours. Store the blueberries in an air-tight bag in the freezer.
