If you know me , then you may have seen these little creations or these. Then you might have realized it would only be a matter of time, before I made another version. I can’t help myself, most of the time my brain just works like this! Some people think of making great architectural structures or the next big technological leap and I think of what I can make out of yogurt.
Just my way of expressing my creativity and doing my part to contribute to the grand scheme of things!
Truth is my kids can’t get ENOUGH of these, so it’s my job to think of the next great thing to create. And since I use Greek yogurt to make these they do add a nice protein punch into their diets and make me willing to make them whenever they want them. I personally use Fage yogurt, because it is hands down the best yogurt EVER! (That is strictly an opinion of mine, which makes it sort of a fact in my world.)
The idea of these cute bunny bites popped into my head randomly this morning as I did the half asleep shuffle into the bathroom to brush my teeth. Because most people think of things like this at that strange moment in time right???? Or not.
Anyways they are super easy to make and only take minutes of your precious time.
This is what you will need……….
- Yogurt (Greek, I use Fage brand, but use what you like)
- Food coloring orange and green
- Decorating bags or plastic baggies to pipe
- Wax paper
I also use plain yogurt which I flavor and sweeten at home, personally I like it that way as do my kids, but you can use whatever flavor preference you like. Next tint your yogurt orange and green.
Scoop each mixture into a decorating bag or a plastic baggie and snip off a small piece of the corner to pipe the shapes. Starting with the orange create the shape of the carrot by piping a zig zig type of line onto a sheet of wax paper. Be sure the wax paper is on something that will allow you to transfer the piped images into the freezer.
After all the lower portions of the carrots are finished, start adding the greens on top. I also did this by adding a zig zag pattern.
After they are all done, place them in the freezer for about an hour! They will be little frozen bites afterwards
Be mindful they will melt! But they usually don’t last that long!
What other fun shapes would you like to see these made into???
Give me an idea or four as I would love a new challenge!
