Fun snack time! Frozen Yogurt Drops

I can't take credit for this one, but I can definitely say it is a HUGE hit in my house. Our new favorite fun snack is frozen yogurt. Simple right?! How had I not though of this myself!? My son Zavery just loves those Gerber freeze dried yogurt drops, but who really knows what is in that stuff. I like knowing exactly what I am putting into my little ones bellies. So anything that I can make myself, while still keeping it quick and easy is a win. So here it is... frozen yogurt drops.

You will need:
Yogurt (any kind will do, though I recommend one without the fruit bits)
Plastic Wrap or a plastic food safe baggy
Scissors
Plate (freezer safe)
Container with a lid (I recommend the Nuby Wacky Ware Bowl & Lid)

Take your baggy and put your yogurt in one corner. I like using a single yogurt cup so I know how many drops it makes each time. I fill the baggy with that entire cup. With your scissors, cut the corner of the baggy. I would say just about 2 millimeters up. You want the hole small so you have control over how fast it comes out. Squeeze the drops onto the plate... about the size of a nickel and evenly spaced out. Don't be afraid to have fun with it! The boys like when I spell out their names with the yogurt... When you're all out, just put the plates in the freezer. They freeze quickly... within about 2 hours they are ready to eat! Just pop each one off the plate and serve. With your leftovers (if there are any, haha) toss them into your Nuby Wacky Ware Bowl... cover it with the lid, and toss them back into the freezer. Once they are frozen they can all be combined together. Though, be sure they're still frozen. It can get messy once they start to melt. These yogurt drops have replaced dessert on our house. The kids are so excited to eat them after dinner, and I am more than happy to serve them.

Hope you enjoyed our fun snack!
