2 Ingredient Jello Yogurt Bites

I made these 2 Ingredient Jello Yogurt Bites.

In basically 5 minutes.  I promise you. I even made this little video to show you how I did it! I used Strawberry Jello in the video, but you can use any flavor you like!

They are the funnest.

A while back I got this amazing box full of yogurt.  Since then I have had so much fun playing with yogurt in recipes…

And honestly since yogurt is one of our favorite snacks here, I thought making something yogurt-ish that we could grab and eat with our hands would be extra fun.

We’re all about hand-eating over here.


Enter these 2 Ingredient Jello Yogurt Bites. I made mine “Creamsicle” flavored using vanilla yogurt and orange jello! They’re so simple, and totally yummy.  Plus you could mix and match the flavors to make everyone happy…AND they’re loaded with protein from the yogurt and fat free!

I mean, that is unless you top them with whipped cream, which I did.  And also a piece of candy….guilty again.

Mix 1 1/2 cups of vanilla yogurt with one pack of Jello.

Chill that for at least an hour and then you’re done.
Honestly, that’s it.

If you are feeling fancy top with a little whipped cream or Cool Whip.
And of course candy…

      I used sugar-free jello for mine. They’re really good, kind of a jello texture, but that’s to be expected. They’re really good with a little whipped topping. A yummy, guilt free splurge!

  1. Martha T

    Any reason sugar free jello would NOT work? These look great for my two year old grandson, but I know his mom and dad would not want him to have the sugar in jello.

  2. Marcie@flavorthemoments

    I love Chobani yogurt, and I especially love what you’ve done with it! Making a cream sickle out of it is just genius!

  3. Wowww
    very nice idea
    I bet this can be modified to be even lower in fat tooooo…. my favorite
    I think this gonna be on my priorities of my to do list after exams
    Perfect as always 🙂

  4. tiffany cremrans

    The recipe looks wonderful but u t shows sugar being added yet doesn’t say how much or when to addbit. So…how much and when is it added?

  5. Julie

    Glad I saw this recipe before I got home from work. I’m going to the store to pick up some jello and trying this tonight. My question is, how long do they keep for and do you refridgerate them? (I know they won’t last That long…but just in case) Thanks!!

  6. Katriel

    This idea is TOTALLY brilliant. I love it.
    I don’t have a microwave though (my husband is a hippie and believes microwaves are death boxes)…which necessitates the use of the stovetop instead. Do you think it could work just as well?

  7. Maura

    Do you have to use greek yogurt or will regular yogurt work. I am thinking it would work the gelatin should firm it up? Thanks!

  8. Sandra

    I’m sorry to report that my creamsicle came out like a thick goopy mess! Did not set, And now I’m out $5 bucks worth of yogurt and gelatin. Placed in the freezer this morning, with hopes to salvage products, and possibly us ( when it freezes) in a smoothie. I’m not happy:(

  9. Lacy

    I didn’t have any of the flavours you specified so I improvised and used raspberry jello with half raspberry and half blueberry greek yogurt…delish! So simple my 18 month and 3 year old could help!

  10. I love the way this looks, I’m making it today 😀 But here’s the thing, is ziplist crashing or is it just me?
    Btw, I LOVE your blog, I’ve made a bunch of recipes already, and they ALL turn out great!!

    1. Shelly

      NO, I’m afraid it probably won’t. The consistency of Greek is thicker, as it’s strained. Your bites probably wouldn’t set up as firm. SOrry 🙁

  11. Just made these in orange and raspberry and they are positively my new favorite thing. They came great! It’s was a perfect treat to make on this blizzard-y day in PA 🙂

  12. Christina

    I made these tonight and used Chobani Vanilla Yogurt and Sugar free Orange jello and mine came out really grainy. Any suggestions? I would love to make them again and fix my mistake.

    1. Debbie Jensen

      Christina I had the same problem. I noticed the consistency was smooth with only one minute of cooking. I think that’s how I’ll do it next time. I’m guessing since it’s sugar free jello, it really only needs to be cooked long enough to blend.

      1. nanci

        I’m wondering why it has to cooked at all, esp if using sugar free jello. I’ve seen many recipes using yogurts and jello, and they never include any cooking.

  13. Alyssa

    I used a nice cube tray to freeze them and make smaller portions, it worked great! Just enough to fill a whole tray! Thanks for the recipe!

  14. Debbie Jensen

    I have a batch in the fridge now. I used Light and Fit Vanilla Greek Yogurt and orange sugar free jello. I’m not sure I should of cooked them for 2 minutes though as they seem to appear grainy. I’m hoping they set up and taste okay.

  15. Debbie Jensen

    I’d suggest only cooking one minute if using sugar free jello. I just tried mine and it definitely wasn’t smooth tasting but had great flavor.

  16. Mercedes Benavidez

    I was wondering are they supposed to be a softer consistency? i tried this recipe, and they weren’t solid at all for me…I was wondering if this is normal?

  17. Karen

    I made these today with Dannon Light & Fit Greek vanilla and sugar free black cherry jello. I followed the advice to only heat for one minute and put them in regular sized muffin tins. They set up well and it’ll be interesting to try different flavors. For my preference, the regular sized muffins are too big. The treats are too sweet for my taste. I think next time I’ll cut the jello measurement in half and use mini muffins. This is a great little dessert, though. Thanks for the recipe!

  18. Jenn M.

    Just made these. They remind me a lot of rainbow parfaits you find in the deli section of the grocery store. Creamy and jiggly. Huge hit with my boys.

  19. Annette White

    I am making strawberry greek yogurt deserts this morning, with a half strawberry on top! This has opened up a whole new set of ideas for dessert for us…I’m dieting for life! and my husband is diabetic. A friend told me about these, and making my own now. I use Great Value plain greek yogurt from Walmart in a large container and sugar free jello. I’m going to also try one with mixing in fruit after microwaving. How would chocolate sugar free pudding mix go with the greek yogurt also?? Thanks for the help!!

  20. Sarah

    Made these today exactly as the recipe states and they came out perfect. My kids (3 & 6) loved them! I am going to try and make mini key lime pies using this idea. Thanks for a great dessert idea!

  21. Catherine

    Just made these. I wish I had read more of the comments. They are a delicious treat but microwaving two minutes made the mixture grainy. I will definitely be making these again but will only microwave 1 minute, stirring every 30 seconds. Thanks for the recipe!

  22. Susan

    Just now tasted one of these and they are yummy. Thanks for the recipe! I wanted to let you know that I made mine using fat free plain yogurt (great value brand) and they turned out fine. What I did was to strain the yogurt through cheesecloth first. I just placed a wire mesh strainer over a bowl, added a two layer section of cheesecloth on that and then piled the yogurt on top. I left it sit for about 30 minutes and it was nice and thick. Since it was plain yogurt, I did add a small packet of Splenda and a drop or so of vanilla extract to it after adding the sugar free raspberry jello to sweeten it up a bit. Placed in ‘fridge for a while to chill and they are nice and solid but still jiggly as jello should be. Yum! I will make again and try different flavors.

  23. Marianne

    I want to make these cuties and take to a Easter party, but the they will probably sit out for a little while. Will it get super messy thawing out that long?

  24. Deborah


    I’ve got my first batch in the fridge; they’ve been in just over an hour and they’re firm but no where close enough to being “set” that I’ll be able to pull the muffin cups off. Suggestions?

    Also, I made a double batch (large box of Jello, 3 cups of vanilla Greek yogurt & microwaved for 4 minutes instead of 2, stirring after every minute) which yielded 14 full cups of very creamy & very sweet orangey-vanilla yumminess! {I can’t help but wonder if those experiencing grittiness are not microwaving long enough for the crystals to ‘melt’????} At this point my only concern is will they ever set enough to take them out of the muffin cups as shown in your photos?????

    I need these for Easter on Sunday, so it sure would help to get your input asap. Thanks tons!!

    1. Shelly

      Sounds like since you had to microwave them a bit longer they were probably hotter than mine going into the fridge, would explain why they are taking longer to set up. I am sure they will be fine in another hour or so!

      1. Deborah

        Thanks again, Shelly. After about 2.5-3 hours I tested one of the first batch and, first off, YUMMO; secondly, I think my expectation of the level of ‘hardness’ was way off. In your photos, the muffin cups look totally clean [like when you unwrap a Reese’s cup] & your ridges are just so perfectly defined, that I assumed these would be super firm [again, like a Reese’s cup]. After dipping the spoon into that creamy, orangey goodness, I realized that I was wrong to expect them to be hard.

        All is fine. They taste deeelish and are pretty to boot, so if any of the weirdos in my family don’t fall in love with them, then that’s just more for me!! (Also, I’m making a batch of grape but I’m going to put it in a pretty pie pan instead of the cups so it’ll be easier to transport. Mmmmmm….can’t wait!)

        Thanks again, and I wish you & yours a lovely holiday weekend!

  25. Med

    This sounds so fun and delicious, I know my kiddos will love them! I have a couple questions for those who have made these, how would they be as a frozen summer treat? Are they super sweet tasting? Would plain Greek yogurt with a teaspoon of vanilla and regular orange jello help cut some of the sweetness out(I’d prefer not to have artificial sweetener in treats for the kids, do they make stevia sweetened jello)? Thanks so much for the fun recipe, and thanks ahead of time to any answers!

  26. Sandy Streza

    I made these with great value che4ry yogurt and sugar free cherry jello. They were relish!!! Will definitely try other flavors.

  27. Hello!
    I am intrigued by your delicious Orange Creamsicle Bites! Would I be able to use them for womansday.com latest slideshow featuring simple summer desserts that have gotten a new twist? I think our readers would really appreciate this recipe (a link to your sites exact recipe will be posted next to the image!) especially with the warm weather the corner. If you are interested please let me know ASAP! Also, please send over the largest possible sized image you have of these treats.

    Thanks so much!


    1. Shelly

      I don’t think freezing them would work well, as yogurt tends to get a bit grainy. But if you do try, let me know how it works!

  28. Ashley

    Yum! I made these exactly as the recipe stated, except I doubled them. I used sugar free orange Jello and Dannon light and fit vanilla Greek yogurt. I put half in regular sized muffin pans, and half in mini muffins. I prefer the mini. They are delicious. We are taking these, in orange and raspberry, to our church picnic next weekend.

  29. Carmen VanVliet

    I jus made the orange cups – used ff, sf, Greek yogurt and sf orange Jell-O. I added a tsp. of vanilla and a packet of Sweet & Lo to the Jell-O. I mixed the ingredients and put it in the microwave for about 1 minute and 30 seconds, stirring halfway through. It came out great and is not grainy at all. Love this recipe!

  30. Danielle Bell

    Don’t try this recipe! Or do something different because i put my yogurt in the microwave and it exploded. I took it out and stirred it so kind of disappointed
