DIY Yogurt Melts [Tasty Tuesday]

As a lot of you know, I make most of Carson's baby food.  When he was eating purees, I made everything.  Now that he's eating mostly finger foods, I still buy fresh/frozen and prep his food, but I do buy a lot of prepackaged "snacks" like puffs, yogurt drops, and crackers.  The yogurt melts, but I feel like we go through the bags SO quickly!  I figured it couldn't be too hard to make your own....and it wasn't!  These are great for teething babies since you serve them right out of the freezer!

What You Need
Yogurt {I used YoBaby Peach}
Drinking glass
Plastic baggie
Baking Sheet
Wax Paper (optional)

How to Make
Line your glass with your plastic baggie and spoon your yogurt into the cup.  I used about a 1/2 container of yogurt.

Remove your baggie from the glass and create your "piping bag":  Squeeze all the yogurt to one bottom corner of the bag.  Twist the bag above the yogurt.  Snip off a very small piece of the corner of the bag.

Line your baking sheet with wax paper. [This is optional but definitely makes for an easier clean up!]  Drop small dots of yogurt onto your baking sheet.  I filled an entire baking sheet with only a 1/2 container of yogurt!  As you can see, some of my drops got a little messy.  That's what happens when you're trying to keep an eye on the baby and make his snacks! ;)  You can make these as big or little as you like!

Stick the baking tray in the freezer for at least an hour or two until they harden up.  Once they are hard, you can remove from the baking sheet and store in an airtight container in the freezer.

*Note: These melt fairly quickly in warm baby hands!  The yogurt drops purchased at the store are freeze dried so these are definitely a little messier!

I'm linking up with Kristin today!



  1. Such a great idea!!! I'm bookmarking this for when we get to that point! Thanks for linking up girl! :)

  2. This looks SO easy! I would love to make those for me! :)

  3. These go so quickly, love the idea. I saw you put it on Pinterest and I definitely pinned it, will be making these!

  4. We just started solids, and I've made everything so far! It's so easy. I'm convinced the baby food industry is a scam! :) Thanks for this recipe!

  5. I have been wanting to try these but wondering if they would melt really quickly. I think I'll still try them; I think my little guy would love them.

  6. I've actually been meaning to try these for myself ;)

  7. These look great and so easy to make
