Sundays at Home | Homemade Yogurt Bites Recipe

Ready for the easiest and best recipe you’ll ever have?  I have a young boy toddler who loves yogurt, but can’t eat it without getting it into his hair, clothes, the table, the chairs, and pretty much everything within a 1/2 mile radius of where he eats it.  I know yogurt is healthy for breakfast and since he loves it and it’s so affordable, I’d love to let him eat it for every breakfast.  However, when we’re on the go, I have to either plan for a long clean up afterwards or skip it.

This is the perfect solution!  Not only that, but it also got my daughters eating more yogurt.  Even the Greek yogurt they couldn’t stand taste delicious as Yogurt Bites!

What you’ll need:

  1. (1) single-serving container of yogurt (any brand, flavor!)
  2. (1) sandwich baggie
  3. (1) cookie tray with Reynold’s wrap or wax paper covering it
  4. (1) freezer
  5. (1) container for storage

First, stir the yogurt up to blend it together and make it smooth.  Any yogurt will work, except whipped, so mix it up.  Try yogurt with fruit in it or the yogurt with the candy in it for a sweet treat.

Spoon the yogurt into the sandwich baggie and push the air out, then seal.  Cut one of the bottom corners off.  The closer to the tip you cut the sandwich baggie, the smaller the yogurt bites will be.  You can make them any size.  Just make sure they are bite-size or they’ll be messy to eat.

Squeeze all the yogurt to the end of the baggie towards the cut tip to make it look like you are piping icing.

Squeeze the bite-size drops onto the tray. Make sure they aren’t touching.  One container of yogurt makes about one tray of yogurt bites.  Next, place the entire tray uncovered into the freezer to freeze.

Since they are so small, they freeze quickly.   It may take up to 20 minutes or less.  Pull them out and you can easily lift the Reynold’s wrap or wax paper, then use your finger to pop off each one into a container for storage.

Enjoy them immediately, or place them into the freezer to enjoy later.  They store in the freezer for about 1-2 weeks.  Make sure your container is air tight to avoid freezer burn.  Give your young kids a few at a time, because unlike M&M’s these do melt in your mouth and your hands!  They are absolutely delicious!

Change it up!

Try dipping fruit in yogurt and freezing for a new and delicious taste!

I just happened to have the ingredients and felt like trying something new, so I made these as soon as I read your post. WOW!! I blended vanilla Greek yogurt with frozen blueberries for the first batch, and then yogurt blended with frozen bananas for batch two. I found it helpful to layer 2 sheets of wax paper on the cookie sheet so that the top layer can be lifted off easily without sticking to the cold metal sheet. Also, it’s best to hold the wax paper up with one hand and peel the yogurt bites off with the other hand and plop them into the container quickly. No need to try to use a spatula to remove them, which takes more time and can damage the yogurt bites. They truly are delicious, and my kids can’t wait to have some for breakfast tomorrow! Thanks for sharing. : )

No problem. I’m glad you enjoyed them. Yes, popping them off with your finger tends to be the best way to remove them without damaging them and they really are delicious for as simple as they are!
