Making breakfast and snacks fun has become even more important around here since we`re trying to ditch the processed foods. That means ditching the bright colored containers of Mini go that we were purchasing in packages of twenty-four a week, the fruit snacks, the chips and the juice.
There was a time when the kids would resist yogurt in containers other than the bright and mixed color mini-gos, a time when I decided that we were going to put those $.99 Ikea molds to good use and make frozen yogurt shapes that pop right out of the silicon trays after they`ve been frozen for forty minutes to an hour.
Frozen Flying Fish
1/3 large tub of yogurt
Ziploc Sandwich Bag
Ikea Ice Mold (Silicon)
1. Fill the mold with Yogurt
It’s easiest if you use a sandwich bag and put the yogurt inside, snipping off a very small corner and piping the yogurt into the ice mold. Once you’ve finished this you can stick the tray in the freezer for forty five minutes to an hour, and create textured frozen yogurt in fun shapes that can bring breakfast, lunch and snacks to a whole new level.
Added bonus? You can ditch the small tubs of yogurt
Make yogurt fun and cool off at the same time with flying fish (or your choice of frozen yogurt molds!)
