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.
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.
Line a baking sheet, plate, or flat (and move-able) surface with wax or parchment paper.
Line a cup with a sandwich baggie and pour the yogurt in. I did one cup/ flavor of yogurt at a time.
Zip up the baggie with as little air in it as possible and snip of the smallest corner possible with scissors.
Example of the size to cut off. (The yogurt comes out extremely fast.)
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.
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.
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.
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!
