HOMEMADE yogurt melts for baby! So much cheaper and healthier than graduates yogurt melts.

Check out this awesome frugal tip that Melissa sent in for how to make your own homemade baby yogurt melts!

“My son LOVES Gerber’s yogurt melts, but they are pretty expensive (around $3 for a small 1-oz bag) and when I read the ingredients, I was shocked to see the second ingredient is sugar. I decided to try making them myself.

All you do is cut up your baby’s favorite fruit – fresh is best, but frozen works too.  Puree it in a blender or food processor.  Then add about twice as much plain yogurt (whole milk or Greek yogurt works best) and blend them together. Line a cookie sheet with parchment paper.  Then make little blobs of yogurt using a small decorating tip or a ziplock bag with the corner cut.  Freeze until solid, then peel off the blobs and toss them in a freezer-safe plastic container or baggie.

I don’t have a freeze-dry machine, so I couldn’t replicate the shelf-stability of the Gerber product.  But I’m a stay-at-home mom and most of the time, it’s not an issue – I pull a few from the container in the freezer and plop them on his tray.  My son eats them so fast, they never have a chance to melt.  This is hands down his favorite snack!”

What a fantastic tip! And it’s perfect with summer right around the corner.

Thanks, Melissa!

  1. My 1 year old loves these as so my 4 and 5 year olds! Thanks, this is a great idea and at 3 bucks a bag I’ll save lots of money (I go through 3 bags a week right now because we all love them!)

  3. I used frozen blueberries and it ended up being too liquidy. I bought gelatin to thicken it up but have no idea how much to use. Any thoughts?

  4. Am I the only one who had issues? Lol. Mine was really thin. When I would pour it on the tray it didn’t stay in a nice little circle. It went everywhere on the tray. It definitely was not thick enough to have it look nice and firm like the picture. Maybe strawberries was a bad mixture for this. Strawberries may be too watery. Not sure. Kind of bummed
