My daughter loves yogurt. She could eat it for every single meal if I let her. My son, on the other hand, isn’t a huge fan. Finding mid-day snacks for the two of them can be a challenge. One will eat just about anything and the other really struggles to try new things so this mom has to get creative.
Both of my kids loved those freeze-dried yogurt snacks that you can buy in the baby food aisle when they were first starting to eat table food. While those were okay then, I want them to have something a bit more substantial now. Seeing how my son is twice as likely to try something if it looks like a dessert, I decided to make my own frozen yogurt bites that resemble those freeze-dried ones they used to love.
This is ridiculously easy.
First, choose a flavor of yogurt. I love Yoplait Original because there are so many great kid-friendly flavors to choose from. Because I wanted my son to try them, I chose a cookies ‘n cream flavor I thought he might like.
Next, pour the yogurt into a sandwich bag and snip of the corner of the bag.
Pipe out little dots on a cookie sheet lined with wax paper. Here is where you can adjust the size and shape to make it more toddler-friendly. I made mine about the size of a dime. If you wanted to get even more creative you could put them in a silicon mold. I am going to try that next!
Finally, put them in the freezer to set. I made them the night before I was going to serve them and they were perfect. These will melt so be sure to only give your little ones a few at a time.
We like to enjoy a mid-day snack when Caroline wakes up from her nap. Today, I took them out and we tried them…
…My daughter loved them so much she clapped! I can’t make this stuff up, she actually clapped because they were so yummy! As for my son, he ate one and said he liked it and then ran off.
Its a baby step in the right direction!
We love finding great snack ideas with our yogurt. Come back in a few weeks for another yogurt recipe you and your family will enjoy. In the meantime you can enjoy any Yoplait Original, Light, Greek, and Gogurt® available at Walmart.
