I love getting to know my little more and more every day. What she likes, what she doesn’t like, the face she makes when she discovers something new. I love every minute of it. But one thing I’ve known from the get-go, without a doubt, is that my girl has a sweet tooth. Not just a sweet tooth, a mouth full of teeth hungry for sugar, ready to devour anything within a mile that is magically laced with those tiny white rocks of sugary goodness.
Thankfully, Halloween has provided her with a mountain of impending diabetes, I mean, candy. How can people not give this girl a handful of candy when they see her at their doorstep (despite mommy’s continual rendition of every mom’s favorite song, “Only One”)?
(PS. Check out Lulu Bell by Sarah on Etsy for dresses as fabulous as this one.)
So when we discovered Isabella’s affinity towards the sweet-life, we decided to be creative. Instead of passing her a “little scoop” every time she asked for “eye-sweem”. Instead, we pass her a couple droplets of froyo and we’ve learned that a few pieces do the trick.
Here is all you need:
- Your little’s favorite yogurt, although I HIGHLY recommend Noosa’s Honey yogurt because it tastes like heaven (seriously, moms, try it – you can find it at Target if it isn’t at your grocery store). I also suggest that you avoid yogurts with fruit chunks as the chunks make it more difficult to make the little droplets.
- A sandwich bag
- A paper plate or parchment paper
And this is what you do with them:
First, scoop the yogurt into a sandwich bag, pushing the yogurt towards just one of the bottom corners (like you’re getting the bag ready to pipe some frosting, which is pretty much EXACTLY what we’re doing). Then cut the very tip of the corner with scissors (or your teeth, I don’t know your life).
After you’re bag is all set up, squeeze little droplets of yogurt all over the paper plate/parchment paper and slide the whole party into your freezer.
Then you simply scoop them off the surface and put them in a freezer-friendly container. They should come off easily with a spatula or any flat tipped utensil, even a spoon. Last, pop a few in your little’s mouth as a “treat” whenever you deem them worthy of one.
Did I mention that these are also great for moms (and dads)? I pop one or two in my mouth when I’m craving dessert and all is well in the world again.
Super simple, right? Comment and let us know what you think!
