Frozen yogurt chips...I actually used Dannon Light and Fit Vanilla yogurt. Put 2 cups yogurt in a mixing bowl. Puree 8 fresh strawberries with 1 ripe banana. Mix with yogurt and place in a piping bag. (I used a sandwich ziploc), pipe into small dots on wax paper and freeze! Easy peasy lemon squeesy, you have frozen yogurt chips!!!
