My little guy is hungry from the moment he wakes up until the moment he falls asleep. I even think he dreams about eating. He’s been a big eater since day one, which is why we started him on “solid” foods as soon as possible. Our pediatrician recommended starting him on plain yogurts at 6 months and needless to say he gobbled it up!
Blueberries seem to be one of Django’s favorite fruits at the moment so we were excited to try the Stonyfield Organic YoBaby Yogurt (Blueberry and Apple combo pack). I just love that it is certified organic, which means it is free of artificial flavors and preservatives.
My daughter likes to be involved in taking care of her little brother. During snack time, she helps by spoon feeding him “airplane” bites. Though, I think she secretly likes to sneak little tastes of his snacks so there may be an ulterior motive there.
Now that Django’s almost 9 months, he’s all about self feeding. So, we’ve come up with new ways to keep everyone involved during snack time. These homemade frozen yogurt bites are so easy to make that even your toddler can participate in making.
Follow the steps below to make these delicious frozen yogurt treats at home.
- ½ C Blueberries
- 1 C Stonyfield Organic YoBaby Yogurt (Apple)
- 1 C Stonyfield Organic YoBaby Yogurt (Blueberry)
- Steam ½ Cup of fresh blueberries for two minutes or until just slightly cooked. Allow to cool for a few minutes.
- Blend the blueberries with 1 cup of Apple and 1 cup of Blueberry Stonyfield Organic YoBaby Yogurt.
- Allow the mixture to cool in the fridge for 15 minutes.
- Line a small tray with parchment paper.
- Use a baby spoon to make small drops of the yogurt mixture onto the tray.
- Place the tray in the freezer and allow to freeze for two hours (or until the yogurt bites are totally frozen).
- Once frozen, cut the parchment paper into smaller squares to stack inside of a freezer safe tupperware. Store in the freezer until ready to eat.
My two kids both enjoyed eating these snacks together. Involving my toddler in the baby’s learning milestones has done wonders for my sanity. Remembering that she can feel left out with how much attention the baby needs is important as a mommy of two. Finding little ways that she can feel helpful prevents her from acting out (most of the time).
You can always try this recipe with other fresh fruit and flavored yogurts. Stonyfield Organic YoBaby Yogurts come in a variety of different flavors and even has a plain option. Be sure to use fresh fruits that are easily cooked and blended. Always, always keep an eye on your baby while they are eating, even with an older sibling helper.
What flavor combinations would you like to try? We’ll be trying the mango and banana yogurt a shot for our next batch. Blended with steamed mango, yum!
