How to Make Healthy Homemade Dippin’ Dots
Easy, healthy, and fun snack that kids can help make.
In case you haven’t noticed yet, I’m pretty much addicted to Pinterest, and if you’re into crafting, you probably already know why. A friend recently pinned a version of frozen yogurt dots from One Good Thing By Jillee. I thought they looked awesome, and decided to make it a bit more of a “craft” rather than just a recipe; and this is what we ended up with.
What You Need to Make Yogurt “Dippin’ Dots” In the Freezer
- Food coloring (optional, especially if you use fruit or berry yogurt)
- Plastic zip bags
- Cookie sheet
Ingredients for the yogurt dot freezer recipe.
Put about one half cup of yogurt, one half a sliced banana, and three drops of food coloring in a zip bag.
Let your little ones have fun squishing it all together. It's fun to see how different colors mix together and to get the bananas nice and squished.
Use your scissors to cut a small corner off the bag and use it to "pipe" the mixture onto the cookie sheet in quarter-sized blobs.
Put the cookies sheet into the freezer and let the yogurt dots set up for a couple of hours before removing them with a spatula.
Store them in an airtight container in the freezer. They melt pretty quickly in little fingers, so I just take out enough for a snack and leave the rest of the container in the freezer. Super yummy and fun to eat!
What I Learned the Hard Way:
#1. You really, really have to squish the bananas or else the chunks will be too big to fit through the hole when you’re piping the mixture onto the cookies sheet.
#2. If you used cheap plastic bags, they will probably leak.
But cleanup is so tasty!
