Healthy, Satisfying Munchies: Frozen Peanut Butter Treats

I'm always on the lookout for satisfying comfort food that's relatively good for you, and playing around with peanut butter and yogurt led me to this quick and easy treat. Hope you enjoy it! 

Frozen Peanut Butter Treats
4 Tbsp. PB Fit
2 cups plain Greek Yogurt OR Vanilla Light and Fit Yogurt
2 oz. Raisins
2 oz. Cranberries
2 Tbsp. Organic Ground Chia Seeds (I use Spectrum)
4 Tbsp. Manuka Honey or more to taste (you'll probably only need this if you use plain Greek yogurt)
4 tsp. Cinnamon
2 tsp. Ginger
Ground Oats (optional)
Unsweetened Almond and coconut milk (I use Almond Breeze or Silk) - use only if you add oats 
2 ice trays

How To Prepare

1. Mix first 8 ingredients well in a quart-sized mixing bowl
2. If you choose to add oats, add almond and coconut milk slowly, 1 tablespoon at a time until mixture is easy to mix. Mixture will be slightly lumpy because of the oatmeal and peanut butter.
3. Use mixture to form small balls and place them in the ice trays. Mixture will spread as it freezes, so allow a small amount of extra room in each ice tray compartment.
4. Freeze for 4 hours.
5. Enjoy!
6. Refrigerate or refreeze remaining treats.

That's it! Oh, and it's gluten-free.
