Frozen Fun-Make Frozen Strawberry Yogurt Dots

Would you like a fun activity for young children? Try making Frozen Strawberry Yogurt Dots. Or would you like a frozen treat that is only 80 calories?


     My granddaughter and I made our own Frozen Strawberry Yogurt Dots. I mixed strawberry jam into the vanilla yogurt. We used a squeeze bottle and my granddaughter enjoyed creating dots of yogurt on a parchment lined cookie sheet.


      She and I enjoyed eating the frozen treats together. If you have young children or grand kids you know how it is to get kids to try new foods. Now, my granddaughter likes yogurt, but lately she eats a couple of bites and then doesn't want anymore. 


     When she made the frozen yogurt dots, she was so excited about the process and of course ate quite a few of the yogurt dots. She said, "this tastes like ice cream."



Ingredients


You will need:


Squeeze bottle-You can buy a bottle from Amazon or a craft store

1 cup of Vanilla Yogurt

1 Tablespoon of Strawberry Jam

Parchment lined cookie sheet




My granddaughter enjoyed squeezing the bottle and making her own yogurt dots. Of course, if you make these I am sure yours will be perfectly formed.



Freeze for around 1 hour.



Different Ways to Flavor Yogurt -link


You can make almost any kind of flavored yogurt. I used the nonfat yogurt (Walmart brand only 80 calories) for myself and even plain yogurt with some kind of added flavoring could be used. It just depends on how you want your yogurt to taste.


My granddaugther and I are looking forward to making more frozen yogurt dots. Perhaps orange, lemon, or maybe even pina colada flavored yogurt dots.


I got the idea from a friend on Pinterest.

Allie-of course more to add to your cooking bucket list. Did you notice my granddaughter's bangs?-she cut her own hair.

Molly- I buy the light nonfat yogurt from Walmart 80 calories. A nice frozen snack when you are craving something sweet. There is never a dull moment when you have grandkids.

Wow Lela! First of all, your granddaughter is a doll! I will have to make this with my little toddler. She loves to help me in the kitchen, and she really likes yogurt, too. Plus, she is cutting her secondary molars, so this would really bring some pain relief! Thank you!

Oh my, Lela! Too funny. Amazing what little ones will do. I recall fondly my DS and how he managed to snag a giant container of sprinkles and took it under the dining room table for a small feast & large mess. 8-)

About Me
I enjoy cooking for our family sit down dinners. Although my kids are grown, we are a close family that enjoys 4-5 sit down dinners a week together. My family's favorite dinner is chicken enchiladas smothered in green chili. I have a passion for cooking, baking for the holidays and food photography.
My favorite things to cook
I am family oriented and spend time with my family enjoying meals. My favorite things to cook are Mexican food and any food my family asks me to cook. My family looks forward to home cooked Mexican food at least once a week and Italian food.
My favorite family cooking traditions
I am on a journey to reclaim family recipes that were lost when the cooks in my family passed away. Cooking traditions are a major part of my passion for cooking. On Christmas Eve, we always had green chili and tamales. Cookie baking, lemon bars, pizzelles , and potica have been a must at Christmas as long as I can remember. My family looks forward to homemade pizza, when we gather as a family to decorate the Christmas cookies. Thanksgiving wouldn't be Thanksgiving without noodles and gravy piled high on mashed potatoes, pumpkin pie, and broccoli and rice casserole. On the 4th of July, there is the 4th of July Potato Salad that I make using 10 pounds of potatoes. Mexican Food is part of our weekly menu--green chili served over mashed potatoes or as a slopper (green chili poured over hamburgers.) I am always making tortillas for someone. They call my tortillas little white pieces of gold. Saturdays are Family night for dinner. It is the one day my kids can request a meal.
My cooking triumphs
Seeking help on the Buzz and the AR Blog has resulted in a few triumphs. I am extremely ecstatic about overcoming the yeast monster. I can now bake baguettes, focaccia and the best rolls in the world, my Grandma Rita's Butter Rolls.
My cooking tragedies
My first attempts at baking bread/rolls resulted in rock hard flat rolls. However, I am improving. Baking at High Altitude is somewhat of a challenge.
