We are still on our mission to try and get Luke out of his fussy eating habits and onto healthier foods. I know it’s Easter and I know I am probably being a complete kill joy, but I don’t want him filling up on chocolate and being a hyper, stroppy mess and then refusing to eat his dinner because he scoffed down all that choccy…

So, in an effort to combat this, we made Frozen Easter Yoghurt Drops! Hurah!

How wonderful do these look? 

Frozen Easter Yoghurt Drops are dead simple to make, they taste wonderful and they look pretty. What more do you want out of food? Oh yeah, they’re also much healthier than chocolate. 

A little pre-warning: we made these in our PJs and Luke is rocking his Christmas bib.

You Will Need:

  1. Greek/Natural Yoghurt
  2. Honey
  3. Food Colouring
  4. Freezer Bags/Piping Bag
Grab some little pots and add a couple of spoon fulls of yoghurt to each one. The number of pots you need obviously depends on the number of colours you’re going to be using!

Add your food colouring of choice to the mix and stir it really well. (Luke liked to eat all the green yoghurt at this point, but not the blue!)

Top Tip: Fold the edges of the freezer bag down over a pint glass, so only the bottom corner of your freezer bag sits in the glass. Fill the bag up with yoghurt (you’ll have both hands free to do that this way as it can be quite messy), then unravel the freezer bag from the sides of the glass and zip up the top.

Cut the tip of the freezer bag and squeeze little circles onto a clean (super clean!) baking tray and place in the freezer for 1 hour, or until they are completely frozen.

Luke loved making these! He could help during the whole process as there was no actual “cooking” involved. Older children would probably be able to do this entire recipe by themselves, with maybe a little adult assistance when it comes to spooning the mix into the piping bags/freezer bags.

Frozen Easter Yoghurt Drops are a great crowd pleaser and definitely a good one to make over the Easter period or half term with the kids. Below is the full recipe, ccomplete with the option to print out in order to use later.

A simple to make, healthy and yummy treat for kids and adults alike.
Ingredients
  • Greek/Natural Yoghurt
  • Honey
  • Food Colouring
  • Freezer Bags/Piping Bag
Instructions
  1. Find some small bowls or pots to mix the yoghurt in. The number of pots needed corrisponds the the number of food colourings you'll be using.
  2. Spoon in a few table spoons of greek or natural yoghurt.
  3. Next, add a teaspoon of honey and stir well. The honey sweetens up the yoghurt, if it's not sweet enough, try adding another half a teaspoon.
  4. Add a few drops of food colouring to the mixture and stir well.
  5. Put the mixtures into piping bags or freezer bags. If using freezer bags, cut a tiny slit in the bottom corner of the bag.
  6. Pipe little blobs, the size of a £2 coin onto a very clean baking tray. Pop into the freezer for a minimum of 1 hour, ideally 3 hours.
