Homemade Yogurt Melts are easy to make and so delicious. Perfect treat for babies starting on solids, toddlers, kids and adults too!
My son loves yogurt melts! I decided to look for a homemade alternative to the store bought versions. They are first of all super expensive and after reading the ingredients (loaded with sugar and preservatives), I decided to try making them myself. They don’t come out perfect in shape, but the taste is great and they simply disappear in a couple of minutes! For more snack ideas please see Creative and Healthy Snack Ideas.
Homemade Yogurt Melts:
All you do is use your favorite flavored yogurt ( I like Stonyfield Yo Kids) or if you want to flavor it yourself, blend your favorite fruits–fresh is best, but frozen works too.
First puree your fruits it in a blender or food processor. Then add about twice as much plain yogurt (greek yogurt is a great option for Homemade Yogurt Melts) and mix. Be creative! You can add some honey if you want them sweeter. I use Winter Park Honey Palmetto Honey (Pure Natural Raw Honey) 16oz.

There are so many combinations for your Homemade Yogurt Melts and you can even blend fruits with veggies making this snack even more nutritious!

Freeze your Homemade Yogurt Melts for a couple of hours and enjoy! You can also store them in a freezer-safe plastic container.
Tasty combinations include: strawberry and banana, apricots and pear, pears and peeled apples, or mixed blueberries, raspberries and blackberries. You can also try adding some spinach, kale, carrots, beets or cucumbers.
If you like, sprinkle in a bit of cinnamon for added flavor. Remember for each cup of puree fruits/veggies use 2 cups of yogurt. Add some honey or use vanilla yogurt for a sweeter taste. There are so many different combinations to choose from!
