Their Favorite Treat

Who says television programing for kids is just a waste and not good for brain cells? There is at least one good thing that can come from it - a fun treat!

I'm pretty sure it was Tasty Time With ZeFronk that led Caleb to ask us to try and create something new. And being the very non-culinary wizard that I am, I figured that learning something new would make me a more well-rounded individual and a fun mom (even if it was just for a moment).

The kids LOVE helping me do this. And they LOVE this treat so much that I will have to keep a refrigerator stocked with yogurt now.

So here it is. Their favorite treat.

First, we have to get out our yogurt.











Then we fill icecube trays with the yogurt. Next we stick tooth picks in the yogurt.












Then we have to wait. This is the hardest part. But when they are finished, they look like this!












And my kids look like this.












I would highly suggest it. It's fun, cost-effective, simple, and healthy. Yay!

I get the go-gurts and stick them in the freezer too! I don't buy them often b/c I think they are more candy than yogurt, but you're right - it is a fun and easy treat!

I enjoyed catching up on several of your posts today. I especially liked the one about what to tell the newly pregnant friend. My daughter's first born is just 5 months old. In the card she gave me on MOthers' Day, she said, "I never knew the mother/child bond was like this. It is so totally awesome." Some things just have to be experienced to be believed.

Ahhh, Wal-Mart brands....gotta love them. My kitchen is stuffed with Wal-Mart branded food.

Try this easy one too....
in a blender dump in two or three bananas chunked up, a couple cups of pineapple juice or a can of crushed pineapple, a tub of frozen sliced strawberries (thawed first) and one can of orange juice concentrate. Add a cup or so of water and freeze in small serving dishes.

thaw slightly before serving

It's all fruit and my kids eat it like ice cream. They actually ask for it. It makes a really slushy consistency and there is no exact measuring. I throw in blueberries sometimes too.
