LITTLE BITES: FROZEN YOGURT DOTS

It’s safe to say the kids are getting tired of the snacks that have been gracing our pantry and fridge this summer. All we seem to do lately is snack so I guess I can’t blame ’em! But I was shocked when they hadn’t gobbled up all the noosa yogurt I’ve been buying at Costco. It could honestly pass for fro-yo! When questioned, they admitted it was just that they had been eating so much of it. So earlier this week we decided to try freezing some into dots, hoping it would rekindle their enthusiasm for the delicious yogurt.

To my delight, they loved the dots and ate them all up. As did I, and will now be eating all yogurt in frozen form — so good! The “recipe” and steps are so simple and easy for little helpers too. Details below.

YOU’LL NEED:

  • favorite kind of yogurt, refrigerated and stirred
  • small zip locks or pastry bags
  • parchment paper
  • cookie sheet

HERE’S HOW:

  1. Line cookie sheet with parchment paper.
  2. Fill ziplock with stirred yogurt and cut a small hole in one of the bottom corners.
  3. Squeeze small dots onto prepared cookie sheet and place in the freezer for a couple hours, until frozen… Freeze longer or overnight if wanting to store and keep for later.
  4. Peel off of paper and eat, scoop into a bowl and serve or place in airtight container and store in the freezer!

Don’t those little yogurt dots look delicious and refreshing?

    This is such a good idea! I’m totally going to try this in the summer with my toddler! (Its currently winter here)

    How fabulous. Will definitely do this, even though it’s winter here, that still looks enticing. And a wonderfully healthy alternative to regular ice cream.
    (PS – I had no idea Noosa yoghurt was sold in the US. Noosa is a fabulous seaside destination here in Australia. Look it up, it’s beautiful!)

      Hi Penny! The yogurt brand is fairly new around here but I had no idea it was named after a destination….Noosa is gorgeous!!! My husband studied abroad in Australia and we talk about taking the kids there often… I should start making a list of all the places to visit! If you have any suggestions, please share :) XOXO
