There will always be homemade yogurt melts in stock in your freezer now. This recipe allows you to control how many fruits and what types you want your baby to try.

Allergy to milk? No problem; you can make a dairy-free version outlined below.  

Benefits of these homemade baby yogurt melts 

All these ingredients are nutritious and delicious for your growing little one and easily found at any store. Opt for organic yogurt, wherever possible.

Organic milk is healthier because it’s the ratio of omega-6 to omega-3 fatty acids is lower than in regular milk. Allowing your baby to get the healthy fats it needs for brain growth.   

Do your best to purchase organic fruits; I find buying them frozen is more cost-effective. Or you can purchase fresh when in season and then freezing them.

Using organic fruits helps to eliminate the pesticides that your little one can be ingesting. Pesticides are harder for babies small bodies to process and remove due to their developing livers and kidneys.   

If you are unable to buy organic ingredients, don’t stress and do your best. You can look into the dirty dozen here for the top fruits to buy organic. 

The greek yogurt in this recipe: 

  • Rich in beneficial probiotics for optimal gut health. Probiotics are  
  • High in calcium and other minerals for good bone health. 
  • Full of protein for developing muscles and for toddler energy.  
  • Full fat to keep  

The fruits in this recipe: 

  • It contains soluble and insoluble fibre to support little tummies. 
  • Are rich in water to keep babies hydrated. 
  • Packed full of vitamins and minerals for overall well being.  

What you will need to make your homemade baby yogurt melts 

  1. A Blender or a hand blender.  The blender or hand blender blends the fruit and yogurt into a smooth liquid for freezing. I like using a Vitamix blender. NO BLENDER, NO PROBLEM, you can also cook the fruit and mash into a puree if you don’t have a blender. 
  2. Plastic bag or piping bag. For piping out, your yogurt melts.  
  3. Parchment paper. To prevent the yogurt melts from sticking to the tray when you are freezing. 
  4. Cookie tray. A cookie tray that will fit easily into your freezer and can lay flat, so your yogurt melts don’t run. 
  5. Yogurt. Full-fat Unsweetened Greek yogurt is best for this recipe. Other types of yogurt will be too runny. You can also look below for substitutions to make dairy-free.  
  6. Banana. (Optional) Bananas will make the yogurt a little sweeter. But you can omit and just use different types of fruit. 
  7. Fruit. You can use any fruit for this recipe. For this recipe, we did raspberry banana, peach mango and, blueberry. 


Getting the right yogurt consistency for the Homemade Yogurt Melts  

Greek yogurt or another type of full-fat yogurts like goats milk or coconut is a must for this recipe.

When you blend in fruits, depending on how juicy they are, you might need to add some more yogurt to thicken the mixture. It should be pretty thick.

If it is too loose, your melts will all run together. Not to worry if this happens as you could break it up into smaller pieces and eat that way.  

Piping out of a zip lock bag works best with a tiny cut in the bag. If you cut the hole too big, it will pour out too quickly and make a mess. I have done this and found the smaller, the better for control. If the bag gets clogged, get a bowl and run your fingers over the end to release the fruit stuck.  


Substitutions for these Homemade Yogurt Melts  

Replacements are easy to incorporate in this Homemade Yogurt Melts recipe to accommodate milk allergies, food preferences, or food intolerances. 


Switch out the diary yogurt– If your little one is allergic or sensitive to diary, you can switch out the cows’ yogurt to a goat yogurt, coconut yogurt, or almond yogurt.

Make sure the yogurts you are buying are very thick. The thinner yogurts will need to be made with puree’s instead of fresh fruit, so they are not too runny.  

Extra Add-Ins for these Homemade Yogurt Melts  

Make these Homemade Yogurt Melts with all types of fruit, the list below are great options for the types of fruit you can use.

Also, I have added a combo list of fruits that work well together, and lastly, a list of fruit that won’t work for these yogurt melts. As always, please make sure these ingredients are still appropriate for your baby.

  • Berries (blackberries, raspberries, strawberries, blueberries) 
  • Mangos 
  • Banana 
  • Peaches 
  • Nectarines  
  • Cherries 
  • Pineapple (puree)

  • Blueberry Blackberry 
  • Strawberry Banana 
  • Mango Pineapple

Fruits to avoid.

Any fruits high in water, hard fruits, and acidic fruits might not be the best options for this recipe: 

  • Lemons 
  • Limes  
  • Oranges 
  • Grapefruits 
  • Watermelon 
  • Honeydew 
  • Cantalope 
  • Apples 
  • Pears 

Want to add in natural food colours to give them a burst of colour try these ideas you only need a little bit start with a few drops and go from there: (safe to introduce after six months of age): 

  • Turmeric (pinch) to make more yellow. 
  • Some juice from beets to make deep red.  
  • Some juice from spinach leaves to make green. 
  • Some juice from blueberries to make blue. 
  • Purple cabbage juice to make purple. 

To make these Homemade Yogurt Melts dairy-free.  

If your little one is allergic or sensitive to diary, you can switch out the cows’ yogurt to a goat yogurt, coconut yogurt, or almond yogurt. Make sure the yogurts you are buying are very thick. The thinner yogurts will need to be made with puree’s instead of fresh fruit, so they are not too runny. 

Storing your Homemade Yogurt Melts 

You can place these Homemade Yogurt Melts into a container after freezing and store in the freezer for up to a month.  


Your yogurt melts need to stay in the frozen until ready to eat. If left out on the counter, they will melt. So always make sure to place back in the freezer, so they don’t melt.
