Ingredients And Substitutions

These are the main ingredients and substitutions for Magic Shell Yogurt Bites. Scroll down to the recipe card for a full list of ingredients and instructions.

For this recipe I used plain greek yogurt which is naturally high in protein, however, you can use any type of yogurt that your prefer such a pumpkin flavored yogurt, vanilla, or non-dairy yogurt for a vegan option.

Pumpkin puree is naturally high in Vitamin C and adds a lovely fall twist to these bites.

A touch of vanilla bean paste adds a ton of flavor, however you can also use vanilla extract.

Maple syrup is an unrefined sugar that I love to use in my recipes, however, you can also use honey, agave or date syrup.

Use any type of chocolate that you’d like such as dark chocolate, milk chocolate, or even white chocolate.

How To Make

ONE: In a bowl, mix together the yogurt, pumpkin, maple syrup and vanilla. Use a cookie scoop or a spoon and add dollops of the yogurt to a baking sheet that is lined with parchment paper and freeze.

TWO: When ready, in a medium bowl melt the chocolate, I like to add in a touch of coconut oil which helps the chocolate melt and have a creamy and smooth texture.

THREE: Working quickly, dip each frozen yogurt bite in the melted chocolate and coat fully. Place back on the parchment paper and back into the freezer.

Tips And Tricks

Yogurt bites must be fully frozen before dipping in the melted chocolate.

Work in small batches when dipping the yogurt in the chocolate so that it doesn’t melt.

Be sure to fully coat the yogurt bites in chocolate to create that outer shell, otherwise the yogurt will seep out once placed in the fridge.

How To Serve And Store

Serve these Magic Shell Yogurt Bites one the outer shell has fully hardened and enjoy straight out of the fridge. You can also freeze these, however the inside will instead be hard and tough to enjoy.

Store in the fridge and enjoy within 4-5 days. Or in the freezer and enjoy up to 30 days.

The texture is crunchy on the outside but smooth and creamy in the center.

Frequently Asked Questions

Can I make these vegan?

Yes, just use a vegan yogurt and a vegan chocolate.

Why is my yogurt seeping through?

You must make sure the yogurt is fully coated in the melted chocolate. This creates that outer magic shell, if there is openings then the yogurt will seep through once placed in the fridge.

Yes totally!

Can I add in protein powder?

Yes totally, just mix it in when combining all the ingredients for the yogurt.

Hi! So excited to try these! How long do you freeze the yogurt mix for before you dip it into the chocolate magic shell? – April

Hi April! It just depends on your freezer- mine usually takes about 1 hour to be totally firm.

Hi There! I was wondering if you knew how many calories/nutritional value were in each? These are delicious!

Thanks,
Cassandra

Hi Cassandra! I don’t provide macros on my recipes because my page is about enjoying food with quality ingredients instead of stressing over the numbers. However, I understand some people need to know for their own reasons so I always encourage to plug the ingredients into a calculator on google to find out! My Fitness Pal has a free one I believe 🙂 i’m so glad you liked them!

These were so good!! And so easy to make. Perfect for grab and go breakfast. Will be making again and again!

Super easy and delicious! My boyfriend had been asking for some healthier treat options and this hit the spot. I found this page on instagram and I’m so excited to try some other recipes 🙂

I made with PB and No Pumpkin. Had to use a bit more dark chocolate than what was called for but the concept and techniques of these are genius and delicious. I can’t have just one. Two fills me up. So. So. Good.
