Yogurt Dot Fun Snack for Kids 300x179 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.

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:

#2. If you used cheap plastic bags, they will probably leak.

  7. AM – You could totally replace the food coloring with pureed berries and still get some fun colors. I’d even experiment with some vegetable juices just to see what happens!
