Make Your Own...Frozen Yogurt Dots!

DSC_0001

I saw these cute little frozen yogurt dots all over Pinterest and on various websites this week and knew I had to try them. Henry is a huge fan of yogurt so I was sure they would go over well. Plus, they're incredibly easy to make.

All you need:

a cookie sheet (or wax paper)
yogurt
plastic baggie
a freezer

Ready for the easiest directions ever? I almost feel silly typing them out because the photos are self-explanatory but maybe this will help someone out there! ha. Here you go:

1. Put the yogurt in the plastic baggie.
2. Cut a small hole in one corner of the bag.
3. Squeeze little dots onto your cookie sheet or wax paper.
4. Freeze for about an hour.
5. Enjoy with your little one!

These were a huge hit with Henry which was great because I always buy the Happy Baby Yogurt Melts from Target, but they run about $4 a pop. And really, he goes through them way too quickly to justify spending that much on one bag of snacks! I got an entire cookie sheet full of drops from just one small yogurt container, and I'd much rather have him enjoy straight yogurt than freeze-dried ones in a package. And like I said, Henry loved them!

Let me know if you try these out, and if your kiddo likes them too! And if you don't have a little one, let me know if you liked them- a child is only optional. :) Happy yogurt-dotting. xo

  2. Love this idea! My 15 month old LOVES yogurt, but she insists on feeding herself and it's soooo messy. This sounds like a great solution...thanks for sharing!

  6. This is a great idea for my smoothies. That way I could add these to zip loc bags with my frozen fruit and have it smoothie ready. All I would have to do in the morning is grab one bag and go. Thanks!

  26. That's a great idea! We like making yogurt into popsicles. The little guy thinks he's getting spoiled because he gets a popsicle, but it's really just yogurt and fruit. :)

  35. You might want to try frozen yogurt popsicle. It’s something that you and Henry will surely enjoy. You can also try experimenting with different flavors and you might discover something new with your creation. If you want, you can put fruits in it to make it even healthier. ->Fresh & Healthy Brands
