Frozen Yoghurt Lollies

Having got over my irrational fear of frozen yoghurt, I decided to try out some home made lollies. Basically I mixed some natural yoghurt and mashed banana and froze it. I used our ice cube tray but ours has quite large sections i.e. about 2 ½ times normal cubes. I created handles by inserting the small spoon end of the spoon you get with Calpol – I know you know the spoon I mean.


Boomer really enjoyed these – she takes large bites and sooks the lolly. The spoon is great to grab and she plays with it once she has finished the lolly.

    some questions…
    are they those long ice-cube trays that you get in ikea? also, did the banana go brown at all? what did it taste like, or does your fear linger to the extent that you didn't try it?
    and crucially, morv, how messy?

    OKKKKKKK, answers….
    The ice cube trays are fancy wancy ones but not too disimilar to the ikea ones, in fact the ikea ones are probably good. I am open to suggestions on improving the design of the lolly as mine are mearly constructed with the equipment to hand. The banana doesn't go brown it stays quite yellow and yummy looking. My fear has been slightly quelled so I did try them – they are really tasty, the tartness of the natural yoghurt is sweetened by the banana.
    Mess – actually less than you would think – although I wouldn't wear drak jeans as little sticky yoghurt hands leave little sticky yoghurt hand prints.

    they sound really delicious, morv. and especially good for when Babybear is next ill, which god knows hopefully won't be for a while yet…

    We are just venturing into the world of dairy. Minky hasn't spontaneously combusted, so I hope there is no allergy there. We tried yoghurt this week. Mr Moomin though I was very cruel giving her natural yoghurt, but she lapped it up. She did smack her lips together and do the funny winking thing she does when eating tart food!
    Anyhow, I spooned it in to her willing mouth. I did give her the spoon at one point and everything got covered in yoghurt. Including the postgraduate student who was observing us for her child development course! So, I think lollies might be a good way to go.
    By the way, my yoghurt pot says eat within three days of opening. I always keep it until I need to scrape the fur off the top. Perhaps I should be a bit more careful with Minky?

    I did them with clementines, Moomin, and they were VILE. far too tart. my own fault, really.
    we've got some squishy bananas in the house so i'm going to use them today. as for the yoghurt question, someone pointed out to me that in hot countries they use yoghurt as a way of preserving milk, so perhaps the 3 day thing is over-cautious? i certainly stretch it to 5-6 with no noticeable ill effects. actually, i'm off to ask on Mumsnet, will report back.
