Homemade Squeeze Yogurt

One of the toughest  things about "going whole food" for us has been the loss of our "squeezy yogurts." You know, the prepackaged ones that come in tubes that kids can suck the yogurt from? We've always bought the organic ones, but once we took on this 40 day whole food challenge we've been forced to take another look at those babies. Organic, yes. Mostly preservative free, yes. Sugar and high-fructose corn syrup free, no.

So what's a mom to do? Well, I found these amazing squeeze yogurt molds on the 100 Days of Whole Foods blog, and immediately bought two packs. (See their post about using these molds successfully here.) We're doing what our family always does: we're making our own!

Here's how we're doing it at our house:

Put your favorite fruit (apples, mango, banana, papaya, berries) in a bowl with a couple tablespoons of honey

Use an immersion blender to smoosh it all up. Yup, it must be smooshy.

Mix in a couple cups of plain yogurt

Use a funnel to fill each tube (leave a little room at the top for the cap to go on)


All filled up, with caps on

We keep them in a measuring cup to avoid spills in the event of a topless yogurt situation
These work well from the refrigerator as a squeezy yogurt replacement, or from the freezer as a popsicle-type treat. The best part is that the ingredient possibilities are endless and the molds are dishwasher safe.  

Loving them.

  10. Plan out when you will take a break. Taking a break to eat, drink, and kick up your heels is often a good idea. However, don’t let yourself become too distracted during your break! Plan out a chosen amount of time that you will take a break for. It is best to take a break after you have completed an entire task rather than in the middle of it. One example could be that you plan to take a break after you have cleaned out under your bed and before you start organizing the smaller things in your room.
    • Don't take a break if the time of your break comes around and you feel as though you're on a roll. Use that feeling of being on a roll to get even more done!
