With a growing toddler on my hands I feel like my cabinets are always bear. I can order groceries and two days later there is nothing to eat, this kid is a bottomless pit. Just this morning he nursed and then proceeded to eat 2 scrambled eggs, a cup or fruit and 1/2 a pancake. I think he ate more than I did. This brings me to my point, toddler friendly snacks are a must and I have been filling our cabinets, fridge and freezer with options I feel are good for him.
One thing we love at our house is yogurt, we eat a lot of yogurt but its a little messy in the squeeze pouches and someone hasn’t mastered spoons yet. I decided that we would try something new and put a fun spin on our yogurt snacks.
You are going to need 1 or 2 ingredients. You can use yogurt all by itself, or add a little fruit. We made about half and half. This is my favorite yogurt, so good.
If you’re a serious cook or a baker you most likely have a pastry bag around the kitchen. I do too, but honestly I’m not sure where it is. In a pinch, a simple ziploc bag and a rubber band work great. I line a glass and fill with yogurt. After I seal the bag up with no extra air and then tie off with the rubber band so nothing squishes back towards the seal.
Snip a small opening off of the corner, always better to start small and cut more if needed. If you cut off to much you’ll end up squeezing all of your yogurt into another bag to start over. Trust me.
Line your pan with either parchment paper or a silicone baking mat. I used parchment paper because my new silicon baking mat hasn’t arrived yet. Make sure that the pan you are using will fit inside of your freezer. Make your yogurt drops about the size of your thumb nail.
I placed fresh blueberries on half of the yogurt drops and then placed them in the freezer for a few hours. After they are frozen completely I emptied them into a food storage container and placed in the freezer until snack time. Everyone loves then and the frozen berries are delicious!
