Frozen Yogurt Holders

by Erin, The $5 Dinner Mom on August 18, 2011

I haven’t tried these personally, but I’ve heard that they work great for freezing yogurt, or for sending yogurt to school. Or enjoying as an after school snack.

It’s loads cheaper (and healthier) to buy a large container of plain or lightly sweetened yogurt and mix in your own sweetener and fresh fruit. Load them up in the evening, freeze overnight and drop in the lunchbox in the morning. They likely won’t stay completely frozen, but will be the perfect temperature come lunchtime.

Would also be great for making your own parfaits for lunch…something an older kid could do easily! If you have the yogurt in a separate container, then it won’t get the granola soggy!

You can find these on Amazon and other cookware retailers.

I have got to get these! i buy the yogurt in the tubes and freeze it. But they get pricey. the containers seem like a great idea!

I saw on a site somewhere to make yougurt tubes with resealable vaccuum bags. Looked awesome. Can’t remember where to give them credit though :)

Have these & LOVE them! We use them for popsicles, smooties, yougurt, pudding & jello. The kis love them & they are pretty much mess free.

I add a little bit of unsweetened Kool-Aid powder to the honey-flavored Greek yogurt that we buy. It’s sweet enough on its own, and my daughter loves getting to mix in the flavor. Sometimes I’ll add sprinkles (non-pareils or jimmies have less sugar than sugar crystals) to her powder, then put it in a cute bento sauce or sprinkle container for her to add and mix when she’s eating. She loves that the best!

I do love these but we’ve found that it doesn’t work well for us as a school lunch choice. At least not for this year. We’ve decided to have our yogurt pops as after school snacks instead.
