We are at G with our cooking with kids a-z of ingredients and that means grape – grapes and cooking, well I was flummoxed! Well that is until I remember seeing these fab Frozen Fruity Yoghurt Bites over at Eats Amazing. So our Frozen Fruity Yoghurt Bites are made with grapes.
Frozen Fruity Yoghurt Bites
These are so simple to make that even toddlers could make these and we shook things up a bit by using what yogurt we had in the fridge and also adding some cake pop sticks in to some to turn them in to ice lollies.
Cake pop sticks
You could make this with any fruit. East Amazing has ones with banana’s and raspberries and blueberries. You could also mix up the yogurt too, we used natural greek yoghurt mixed with vanilla bean paste, vanilla yoghurt and also cherry yogurt, however, if you are dairy free then soya yoghurt works really well too.
You really need to use silicone moulds or cake cases for these, we made some with paper cases, but they are hard to remove!
Chopping grapes makes for great fine motor skills. Maxi is getting really competent with his knife skills, but make sure you explain to hold the knife correctly, but more importantly that you need to hold the grape with your thumb and fore finger and cut between. Grapes can be tricky as the skins take some cutting, so make sure your kids have a sharp knife (blunt knives cause more accidents as you have to apply more pressure to cut, making them harder to use).
Maxi placed some grapes in the bottom of the silicone cups before filling them with yoghurt using our trusted scoop.
We popped some cake pop sticks into the containers before we froze them, which make them perfect for eating as lollipops.
The others we placed on to a tray and into the freezer overnight.

These look delicious and a fantastic alternative to ice pops. I think I’m going to give them a go over the summer in our ice pop moulds

Jen, these are GORGEOUS! And delicious and nutritious! Awesome!
This looks so simple, and they look great! I will have to try this!
Oh these look really yummy, I must try them, as I am obsessed with frozen grapes in the summer. I saw something interesting on pinterest the other day, where the blogger had got a four pack of yoghurts and just stuck lolly sticks in the lids with out opening them, and put them straight in the freezer…I’m going to try that too!
Yum! My kids would love these too. My sister showed me a trick for cutting grapes (for adults, not kids). You sandwich a layer of grapes between 2 plastic lids with a narrow rim, such as from a sour cream container, and then you press your flat hand firmly on the top lid while slicing horizontally with a sharp chef’s knife. Hope that makes sense.
These look great! What a smart idea! Thanks for sharing on #ToddlerFunFriday
These look great and so easy to make , they would be perfect for my toddler and my teen xx
These are pretty amazing too for dieters when you want something a little ice creamish to keep the cravings away.
Yummy and perfect for a playdate snack after school. Thanks for linking up with the Family Frugal Linky.

These could not be any easier and now I’m so craving some! Pinned….thanks for sharing at our FB Share day!
These look great – perfect for my one year old girl to try some different textures. Although she is lactose and soy protein intolerant so i will make them with coconut milk yoghurt or maybe just some watered down fruit juice 🙂 My eldest can have the yogurt ones though!
