Homemade Yogurt Melts
Homemade Yogurt Melts are easy to make and so delicious. They are really the perfect treat for babies starting on solids, toddlers, kids and adults too!
Instructions To Make Your Own Yogurt Melts:
1. All you need is your favorite yogurt. I highly recommend a plain yogurt, flavored at home with fruits and a little honey or maple syrup. Just blend your favorite fruits, fresh is best, but frozen will work too.
First, puree your fruits it in a high speed blender. Then add about twice as much plain yogurt (greek yogurt is a great option for your yogurt melts) and mix everything well. Add some honey or maple syrup if you want them sweeter, or if you are using fruits that are not too sweet like berries. I use Winter Park Honey Palmetto Honey (Pure Natural Raw Honey) 16oz to sweeten my plain yogurt. Learn about the health benefits of eating raw honey here: Benefits of Raw Honey.
If you really donít have time, you can simply use a store-bought flavored yogurt. Make sure you buy one that is all natural and doesnít have a lot of sugar, the idea is to make it a healthy snack.
2. Using a ziplock bag, cut a tip and carefully put drops in a tray on top of Parchment Paper

There are so many combinations for your homemade yogurt melts, and you can even blend fruits with veggies making this snack even more nutritious!

If you like, sprinkle in a bit of cinnamon for added flavor.† Remember for each cup of puree fruits/veggies use 2 cups of yogurt. Add some honey or use vanilla yogurt for a sweeter taste.† There are so many different combinations to choose from!
