Blog #111: Here is a 2 ingredient recipe for baby and family. A quick cooling treat for those hot summer days and great for after a workout. Blueberry yogurt drops are delicious and the perfect melt in your mouth treat. I thought of making these as I had one yogurt cup that was due to expire soon and of course I did not want it to go to waste. In my home we aren’t yogurt lovers and I for one am learning to like yogurt. I want to say I ate to much of it as a kid and learned to dislike the taste. I am not sure.
My Favorite Yogurt Brand
My favorite yogurt brand is the Stonyfield Organic Vanilla flavored yogurt. It has that frozen yogurt vanilla flavored ice cream taste. It tastes very fresh and organic. No artificial taste! This is the only yogurt I buy and eat. The best way to buy yogurt is either plain or vanilla flavored and add fruit to it yourself. See the picture below. By doing so you are eating more healthy. As many fruit flavored yogurt cups contain hidden added sugars. You can always add fresh fruit and granola or puree the fruit and mix into your yogurt.
Another reason why I wanted to make these yogurt drops was for my son. A cool treat for a teething baby. It is so refreshing without having a whole ice cream bar. The happy baby brand sells freeze dried yogurts that my son likes. But to be honest, I have stopped buying baby snacks. They are convenient for on the go but why can’t baby have what I eat? I have a blog on how to introduce homemade baby foods instead of buying jars of food that can become costly! And no you do not need expensive baby food makers. All you need is a mesh strainer.
