Frozen Yogurt Raspberries

1/2 cup Vanilla Greek Yogurt ( or whatever flavor you choose)

3/4 cup raspberries

Fill a piping bag or ziplock with yogurt. Freeze for a few minutes to an hour, checking every 10 minutes. You need it to solidify a bit without becoming solid.

Meanwhile, rinse raspberries and allow to dry a bit. Once yogurt is frozen, fill them with the yogurt from your bag or cut the tip off ziplock. Top with poppy seeds if desired, or actual sprinkles if you don't mind a little sugar. Place a handful in baggies and keep in a cooler for after game snack time.

This is a fun snack for kids to help with. But you can also do it this way:

Wash raspberries and let them dry completely. Place a sheet of wax paper on a cutting board that will fit in your freezer. Taking a toothpick, dip raspberries in yogurt. Place on paper lined cutting board. Freeze completely.
