Adapted from 17 Apart:  What's great about these treats is how simple they are to make and store. They require minimal and completely natural ingredients, can be made in large batches to store in a freezer bag.

  1. Spoon a small amount of peanut butter into the base of the ice tray. You can heat up the peanut butter first to make it easier (and not so messy) to spoon in. The more you add, the thicker the top layer on the treats will appear. 
  2. Next up, dollop heaping spoonfuls of the yogurt to cover the peanut butter in each mold.
  3. Press yogurt down into the molds using the back of your spoon to make sure they're packed. This will help seal the peanut butter and yogurt together in the final treat. You can even gently "drop" the tray a few times in order to encourage further settling. If you have excess yogurt in any of the molds, gently scoop away until level with mold.
  4. Place the tray into the freezer for at least 4 hours. Once frozen, remove tray and pop out individual frozen treats.
  5. Store in container in freezer.
