Theresa's Mixed Nuts: Frozen Yogurt Dots

Frozen Yogurt Dots

Yesterday was the first day where it felt unbearably hot this year. As soon as the girls got home from school, they immediately started asking for ice cream or popsicles. Of course, I didn’t have any. I had no desire to run to the store for any either. And where the heck is the ice cream truck when you really want it around? I usually cringe when I hear that stupid “Pop Goes the Weasel” music blasting around the neighborhood, but yesterday, I would have gladly ran to the truck with open arms.


I started tearing through the fridge looking for something cool and refreshing that would satisfy my kids, when I noticed I had a few yogurts sitting there. *Ding!* A light popped on (in my head, not the refrigerator) as I recalled seeing frozen yogurt dots on Pinterest once. Yep, it’s Pinterest to the rescue again. What ever did mothers do before that gem of a website was around? 


We filled a pastry bag with the yogurt, then squeezed dots onto waxed paper. Popped them into the freezer. An hour later we had our cool and refreshing treat that is much healthier than ice cream anyway!

    1. I have a feeling it's going to be a hot one this summer. We'll have to make sure that if the popsicles aren't in the house the yogurt is!

    1. I think your baby will love them. Just don't give too many at once. They melt in your hand rather quickly. You'll have a big sticky mess of a baby then ;)

  4. I have this pinned as well! Can't wait to try :) Are they really hard after freezing, do you have to suck on them or can you bite them? Great idea for summer!

    1. They are a little hard, but not rock hard. Yes, you can bite into them because they soften pretty quick. If you want to suck on them, that's ok too. They will melt in your mouth pretty fast.

      So glad I found this on Pinterest. I'd much rather the kids be eating these than begging for ice cream every day this summer!

  5. That looks like a wonderful quick fix. I'll have to try it... and check out Pinterest. I've never been to that site.
