Mommy Mondays -Cheap Baby Yogurt Melts

Monday, March 19, 2012

My son LOVE those Yogurt Melts from Gerber.  I just got home some from Happy Organic Baby (review coming soon - seriously, so good!) too that are a huge with with him as well.  Unfortunately, when you can't catch these melts on sale or you don't have a coupon for them, they can be a bit pricey.

 I saw this recipe on Tales of Two Girls last week, who found it from a One Good Thing by Jillee's blog.  She shows you how to make your own Yogurt Melts - and it is seriously super easy and cheap!  
And when I mean easy - I mean easy enough for those who always mess it up to NOT mess it up.  

Here's how you can make these melts for your kiddos for less than $2:

1.  I bought a big container of Dannon Yogurt on sale today at Meijer - $2.00 for this big beast!  I chose strawberry, but choose a flavor that you know your tots will enjoy!  Maybe consider using YoBaby Meals to incorporate some veggies into your toddler's diet.

2.  Fill a baggie with the yogurt and twist the baggie like you would do to a frosting bag.  Then, cut the tip when you're ready to dot.

3.  Make about 1-2 inch dots on a cookie sheet.  
**Tip - make sure your cookie sheet is small enough to fit into your freezer!**

4.  Stick your cookie sheet in the freezer for about an hour.

5. Ta-da! (As my son would say) You've got homemade Yogurt Melts! 
(Keep them cold so they don't melt though!)

One container of yogurt seriously makes hundreds of these melts - so you are saving yourself a ton of $$ by making them at home.
I had to make two batches tonight (oops) and it barely made a dent in my beast container.
Guess I'll go grab a few before bed...shh, don't tell anyone.

Yummy Snackies,


  1. I wish that I would have had this recipe last year! I was spending $10/week on yogurt melts and my little man still couldn't get enough. I decided that this was the weekly budget for yogurt melts otherwise it would have been out of hand!


  2. This is a great idea. Great way to save doing it yourself.
