Easy DIY Yogurt Ideas For Healthy Snacks
For these recipes you can use your favorite yogurt brand and flavors. I love Greek full fat plain yogurt with a little bit of honey or maple syrup. Go ahead and give one of more of these ideas a try. For more snack options for families, please see my Snack Treats section.
Mini Yogurt Fruit Pizzas
For this super creative yogurt idea you only need little round cookies, yogurt, and some fresh fruit. I used plain Greek yogurt, granola cookies, and berries. The sweetness of the cookies was enough and I didn’t need to add any sweetener to my yogurt. These mini yogurt fruit pizzas are also a fantastic finger food idea for a party.
All you need to make yogurt melts is your favorite yogurt. I recommend a plain yogurt flavored at home with fruits and a little honey or maple syrup. Just blend your favorite fruits and add a touch of sweetness. Perfect for babies starting on solids, toddlers, kids, and adults too! Full recipe details HERE.
Pick your favorite yogurt and spread it on top of parchment paper making an even layer. Then, top with your favorite toppings like fresh fruits, nuts, granola or cereal. Freeze for a couple of hours and finally break into pieces. Yogurt barks are delicious. I find Greek yogurt to work best for this type of recipe. Enjoy!
Fun Fruit Yogurt Pops
If your kids want a little bit more than plain fruit or yogurt for an after school snack, make fruit pops! You can use different fruits like bananas, strawberries and kiwis (these work really well). Then cover the fruit in yogurt and add chopped nuts, sprinkles, toasted coconut or granola. Freeze for a couple of hours and they will be ready!

Yogurt Ice Pops
When I buy these little yogurt tubes (sometimes called squeezers), I always freeze some and my kids love having them for dessert. Yogurt ice pops are always a hit! They are also perfect to send to school because if they are frozen, they will still be cold when it is snack time!
How To Eat Yogurt Tubes Without Making a Mess
If you think the tubes are messy and your kids always spill some yogurt all over your house, a straw will solve this problem. No more mess and the kids will be super excited that they can actually drink it.
