eat THIS: FROZEN YOGURT CHIPS

Today we make history. Ha! Basically we've never done any food posts, so this is our first one! We don't intend to do food posts that often but every now and then we will share the easy little things we do. So for our first food post we have... Frozen Yogurt Chips/ Blobs/ Dots.

I saw these on Pinterest and couldn't resist making them immediately. I figured freezing yogurt drops couldn't really be all that hard and it would taste great! Well... it wasn't all that easy but they still taste as great as I had hoped. For those of you who haven't seen these or tried to make them, allow me to take you through the process.

Photobucket 
I used four servings of yogurt. These exact ones in the picture actually. I didn't want to do just one flavor, I wanted a mix of flavors.

Photobucket 
Line a baking sheet, plate, or flat (and move-able) surface with wax or parchment paper.

Photobucket 
Line a cup with a sandwich baggie and pour the yogurt in. I did one cup/ flavor of yogurt at a time.

Photobucket 
Zip up the baggie with as little air in it as possible and snip of the smallest corner possible with scissors.

Photobucket 
Example of the size to cut off. (The yogurt comes out extremely fast.)

Photobucket 
Gently squeeze out the yogurt from the baggie onto the sheet. If your yogurt has fruit chunks in it like this peach one did, you will have some issues. As you can see my blobs weren't all that perfect. Doesn't matter- they all taste the same in the end. If a piece of fruit blocks the hole in the back just gently squeeze it out with your fingers. If you just squeeze the bag really hard, yogurt will go every where.

More flavors.. I got a little better at making the blobs equal.

Photobucket 
And my last flavor was almost perfect. The strawberry yogurt was actually the easiest to do. It wasn't as runny as the other flavors. Stick all of the dots/ blobs in the freezer for at least 2 hours.

Photobucket 
When they are frozen you can just peel them off of the wax paper and put them in containers that will keep easily in the freezer. Casey and I ate half of the blobs right away and the other half went into these little jars and back into the freezer.

Photobucket 
In the jars... starting to melt. No biggie! We put them right back in the freezer for a nice snack tomorrow and the next day! These just make yogurt a little more fun to eat! Next time I will try these with Greek yogurt. I'm sure the shapes will be more consistent and they may even taste better!

  7. If you want to make a ton, you can do a second sheet of wax paper and another layer of dots. I haven't tried it with more than that, though; I was afraid it would squash the bottom layer too much. My toddler loves these.

  10. I am a big fan of yogurt, may it be a frozen or probiotic yogurt. It gives me a great satisfaction. Yogurt is also a healthy drink/food. Anyway, these yogurt chips look very enticing.

  12. Just made these! So simple, yet so fun. I made mine in Vanilla & Key Lime Pie flavor. They turned out great!

  13. I will try these. What if you froze the yogurt for maybe half and hour or so before squeezing so the yogurt doesn't come out as fast? I think I will try that!

  14. It worked! I also mixed in hot cocoa powder for flavor! DELISH. Freezing the yogurt for 20-30 min makes it a little thicker, perfect for squirting.

  15. Also saw this on pinterest and saved it on my "ideas worth trying" board! Funny, I was thinking of trying with Greek Yogurt as well.
