Pinspiration: Frozen Yogurt Dots

Written by Jen Sill

 This is a quick tip.

It is great for those long, cold, winter days stuck inside.  PLUS – it got my kids to ENJOY eating a healthy treat.  

And this one is SO super simple.

Frozen yogurt dots.

 

What you need: 

Yogurt

Ziplock bag

Cookie Sheet

A freezer

 

What you do: 

Dump the yogurt into the ziplock.

Snip a corner out of the bag.

Drop little bits onto your cookie sheet.

Freeze (this took less than an hour because our dots were pretty small)

BOTH kids LOVED this.  And they had a TON of fun eating these little treats.

I’ll be using this quite often.  The kiddos love to START yogurt cups, but rarely finish them.  I’ll just drop whatever is leftover on a cookie sheet -for frozen fun.

  • I’ve been making these all year long, I’ve added all kinds of fruit and also protein powder (soy or hemp) as well as flaxseed meal. If you have any of those frosting tips you can insert those in the plastic bag for flower dots. I also put down plastic wrap so when I pick them up off sheet I can just store in freezer in wrap.

    • Alison – I JUST made these for the first time. These are AWESOME ideas!! My kiddos ate almost two full cartons of yogurt – and they thought they were having the best time ever. lol
