The littlest country kid LOVES yogurt. I mean like a junky looking for his next fix, he will stand in front of the refrigerator yelling "yogurt!!!" I am please he like his dairy products, but having just turned two, his spoon skills are lacking in the feeding yourself some yogurt department. It is just a mess I like to avoid. And frankly I don't want to sit down and spoon feed it to him, so what is a mama to do!?!?
Frozen yogurt! I can make these up ahead of time so when he starts jones for some yogurt, I pour a few in a bowl, and send him on his merry way without having to worry about the yogurt on my carpet, rubbed into the furniture, on the dog's head..... like I said, his spoon skills stink. So how do you make frozen yogurt bites?
I simply line a cookie sheet with wax paper, spoon some yogurt into a sandwich baggy and cut a small piece of corner off. I make little piles of yogurt on the wax paper. The yogurt comes out fast at first, so be prepared. Once you have all your yogurt bites formed, simply pop the cookie sheet into your freezer for about 30 minutes. Once the yogurt bites are frozen, remove them from the wax paper and put them back in the freezer in a storage container for later use. That is IF you can get them in a container! The littlest country kid can steal them super fast off the tray!
And while the littlest country kid beams with pure joy written across his face every time he gets his grubby little hands on some, these are actually a hit with the older country kid as well. Oh and I like em too! Shhh, don't tell them I eat their yogurt bites! *wink*
