How to Make No-Bake Yogurt Fruit Cups:

Here are the steps to make yogurt fruit cups at home.

Yogurt Fruit Cups FAQ:

Is This Recipe Gluten-Free?

To ensure that this recipe is entirely gluten-free, make sure to use certified gluten-free oats.

Is This Recipe Vegan?

I make this recipe using my favorite plant-based yogurt. Feel free to use your own favorite yogurt. I do recommend using thicker yogurts, such as Greek yogurt or plant-based Greek yogurt. One of my favorites is Maison Riviera oat-based yogurts. They have a Greek option, but I enjoy their oat vanilla the most, which still has a thicker consistency than their coconut yogurt.

Can I Prepare This Recipe in Advance?

I don’t recommend preparing the entire recipe in advance as the yogurt will add too much moisture to the cups after being stored for days. Instead, I recommend preparing the cups and storing them in an air-tight container in the fridge or freezer. Serve them with yogurt and fruit just before serving.

Notes

I recommend using silicone muffin pans to make the cups easier to remove. I just used silicone muffin liners that I place in my muffin pan.
Suggested fruits: Raspberries, blueberries, blackberries, chopped cherries, peaches, strawberries, kiwi or other fruits of choice.
Suggested yogurts: I recommend choosing a thicker yogurt. This will make the cups easier to eat. My favorite is the Maison Riviera oat-based vanilla yogurt. Greek-style yogurts will also work well. You can choose sweetened or unsweetened yogurts, depending on your preference.
For Advance Prep: I don’t recommend filling the cups with yogurt until they’re ready to serve. If preparing this snack in advance, I recommend storing the empty cups in an airtight container in the fridge or freezer. Fill with yogurt and fruits when ready to serve.
Feel free to swap the walnuts for cashews or pecans. Almonds would work too, but the texture will be different. You can choose raw or dry-roasted, unsalted nuts.
