I’ve been making homemade yogurt melts for the boys for a while and they absolutely love them. I recently decided to try them out with freeze-dried fruits and let me tell you, this has been a game-changer!! Making them with freeze-dried fruits keeps the consistency of the yogurt nice and thick while still maintaining that natural sweet taste from the fruits. These melts can be customized with different flavors to make fun-colored treats that your little one is sure to love!

WHAT YOU’LL NEED

Here is what you’ll need to make these homemade baby yogurt melts:

Ingredients to make yogurt melts
  • Greek Yogurt: The main star ingredients for these melts. Greek yogurt is naturally thick and great to help the yogurt melts hold their shape.
  • Freeze-dried Fruits: You may use any freeze dried fruits, as long as they can easily be crushed down into a powdery texture. I made a separate batch of banana, mango, blueberry, and strawberry flavored melts.

PROCESS

  1. Place the freeze-dried fruits in a small blender and blend until it forms into a powder. You will want to have about 3 tablespoons of powder to add to the yogurt. You may also add the freeze-dried fruits in a ziploc bag and use a cup or any object to smash them down into a powder.
  2. Add the powdered fruits to the Greek yogurt and fold it in until incorporated.
  3. Pour the mixture into a piping bag or Ziploc bag with a small cut at the tip and pipe out small dime-sized circles onto a parchment paper-lined pan.
  4. Freeze for at least 2 hours and serve!

STORAGE INSTRUCTIONS

Once the yogurt melts harden for at least 2 hours, transfer them to an airtight, freezer-safe container, and store them in the freezer for up to 1 month. Make sure to transfer them right away so that they do not get freezer burnt. The yogurt melts may stick together a bit when stored, but you can separate them before serving.

SUBSTITUTIONS

  • Greek yogurt: You may substitute the Greek yogurt with a dairy-free alternative, like coconut yogurt. Be mindful that coconut yogurt is not as thick, so try to be gentle when folding in the powdered fruits.
  • Freeze-dried fruits: You can feel free to use any pre-packaged freeze-dried fruits! I’ve found that these work best with freeze dried strawberries, blueberries, raspberries, bananas, and mangoes! You can also feel free to mix several fruits in one! If you can’t easily find freeze-dried fruits, you can make these homemade yogurt melts that use fresh fruits instead!

RECIPE NOTES

  • This is a great snack for babies once they have developed the pincer grasp and are able to pick up small items with their index finger and thumb.
  • These baby yogurt melts are not considered a choking hazard as they do melt quickly with natural heat from the tongue.
  • I used my nutribullet blender to blend the fruits into a smooth powder, but you may also crush them in a bag by hand.
  • Do not leave these yogurt melts at room temperature for too long because they melt quickly!
  • Adjust the taste of the yogurt to your liking. Taste the yogurt first before adding it to a piping bag and add more powdered fruits for sweetness if desired.
