Sweet Treats ....

With the warmer weather approaching I have been wanting to start making a good supply of healthy snacks for the kids.

So I had a go at making some yoghurt drops just from the large tubs of yoghurt we already had in the fridge. 

To make yoghurt drops you will need:

  • Your favourite flavoured yoghurt {I used a no fat/low sugar passionfruit flavour}
  • A stainless steel tray of some sort {a baking tray is fine}
  • A dessert spoon
  • Baking Paper
  • A butter knife
 
Just line the tray with baking paper and place spoonfuls of the yoghurt onto the tray in dollops.
 
 
 
Once you have filled the tray, just place it into the freezer to set.  Once frozen, remove the dallops from the tray with a butter knife and place into ziplock bags. That way you always have a few yummy flavours on hand.
 
 
 The mixed berry ones have been a hit!

If you prefer you could use smaller dollops of youghurt.  But at this size they are perfect for little hands to hold onto and enjoy.

It really is very fast and easy!

I have also been busy making a heap of different flavoured ice-blocks. It is a perfect way to include more fruit into the kids diet by having a healthy alternative to store bought ice-blocks. 



Flavours pictured above include:
 
Mixed berry {raspberries, blueberries and blackberries} with mixed berry youghurt.
 
Apple & Mango juice with diced kiwi fruit (these ones are delicious).
 
I will be experimenting with a heap more flavours in the coming weeks and am looking forward to having our banana ice-blocks back in the freezer again too.
 

Let me know if you end up making some of these sweet spring/summer treats and don't forget to get the kids involved too.

I will also be sharing one of our favourite afternoon tea snacks {fruit smoothies} here soon!
