Frozen Yogurt Bites

Zahara is a great eater, and has been from day one. I absolutely do not have to worry about her getting enough fruit--can one overdose on bananas?--and she does pretty well with veggies too. Since we stopped nursing this month though, I really want to make sure she gets enough calcium and vitamin D. She drinks whole milk at daycare, but doesn't seem to love it at home.

Of course milk isn't the only way to get these nutrients. These frozen yogurt bites could not be easier to make and so far she seems to enjoy them.

Frozen Yogurt Bites
  • One container of Greek yogurt with fruit (I used Chobani)
  • Scoop whole container of yogurt into a ziplock bag. Fold the zipper over the bag first so that the yogurt doesn't get on your hands.
  • Use a pair of scissors to snip a small corner of the bag. The bigger the whole, the bigger your bites will be. 
  • Place a Silpat or piece of parchment paper on a baking sheet. Gently squeeze the bag to form small rows of dots.
  • Put the baking sheet in the freezer until yogurt is set (a few hours should do it).
These bites are best right out of the freezer. They melt quickly, so serve only a few at a time as a finger food or with a spoon.
