Frozen Pineapple Cranberry Bites.

[Originally posted here on April 16, 2014.]

Summer's coming! At least, I think it this seems like a good time to introduce you to a great summer snack!

Frozen pineapple cranberry bites: a healthy, three-ingredient summer snack.

This one's super easy, folks. Just three ingredients:

Three ingredients: crushed pineapple, whole cranberry sauce, and vanilla yogurt.

  • 20 oz can crushed pineapple, drained
  • 14 oz can whole-berry cranberry sauce
  • 1 cup vanilla yogurt


Dump all the ingredients into a large bowl.


Stir to mix.

Spoon into mold.

Spoon into a freezable tray (I use my silicon mini-muffin trays).


Pop 'em in the freezer for a while.


Aaaaaand, they're done.

See? Super easy.

I pop all of mine out of the tray and store them in the freezer in an airtight container, with foil between each layer. Whatever doesn't fit in that gets tossed into a freezer bag; they stick together a little that way, but it's not too bad.

It's better than sugary popsicles on all those hot days coming up, right? (They are coming, right?)

Fun with shapes!

There's always too much for just two trays, and I'm never in the mood to freeze them in batches, so I used one of my Christmas trays for the remainder.

Summer snowflakes!

These snacks hold their shape pretty well! At least until they start melting...


I think it's been about a year since I last made these for Kaylie; she was a bit taken aback by how cold they were!

And for your cut-and-paste convenience:

Frozen Pineapple-Cranberry Bites

  • 1 can (20 oz) crushed pineapple, drained
  • 1 can (14 oz) whole cranberry sauce
  • 1 cup vanilla yogurt
  1. Combine all ingredients in large bowl.
  2. Pour into freezable tray (e.g., silicon muffin tray).
  3. Freeze at least 3 hours.
Now, all we need is some warmer weather! :-)
