As a child I always begged my mom to buy me some “ice cream of the future.” Remember those? When I introduced my kids to those “dippin dots”, they were not impressed. To tell you the truth, I wasn’t either. Funny how the things we loved as a kid don’t hold the same draw when we try them as adults. I’ve been thinking about those frozen dots ever since Stonyfield sent me coupons to try out their new line of yogurt pouches. They’re the same yummy Stonyfield organic yogurt that our family loves, but in travel friendly pouches.
Sophia and Jaxson love eating the yogurt straight from the pouches, but I had the perfect after school activity turned snack for them. The YoKids, YoToddler and YoBaby pouches makes it super easy to make frozen yogurt dots. I shouldn’t even call it a recipe!

I tested my frozen yogurt dots idea while the kids were in school just to be sure my idea would work. Line a baking sheet (or flat plate) with parchment paper or silicone baking mat. (Make sure you can fit the baking sheet in your freezer.) Slowly squeeze out a yogurt dot about 1/2 inch wide (about the size of a dime). They’ll spread out a bit when the freeze. Luckily, the nozzle on the Stonyfield YoKids pouches, make it easy to control the flow.
Unless, you’re my kids and they just go willy nilly with the pouch. Which is not a problem. Can you guess which ones on the mat are Jaxson’s and which ones are Sophia’s dots? My first batch (made without kids) were a little more uniform.
Don’t worry because they’ll taste good no matter how they look. It took us one pouch to fill up a 12″x16″ mat. Place the dots into the freezer for 20-30 minutes or until frozen. It doesn’t take very long.
Once they’re frozen, just release them from the mat. Here’s a trick for: roll up the mat with the dots on the inside. Gently squeeze the rolled up mat.
Then shake them out into a bowl or cup. The smaller ones will release more easily than the bigger (kid squeezed) dots. The frozen yogurt dots should fall right out! One pouch makes approximately 3/4 cup of frozen dots, depending on how big the dots are.
Store them in an airtight container in the freezer or eat right away. The frozen yogurt dots were a hit with my kids. They had as fun making them as much as they did eating them. It’s a healthy after school snack!
The Stonyfield yogurt pouches are available in lots of delicious flavors. Sophia’s favorite is the YoKids strawberry banana and Jaxson likes YoToddler pear spinach mango. Each of our three batches were made with a different flavor and they ate them all. Right now you can print a $1 coupon from Stonyfield to try out the pouches!
