Turn Yogurt into this Delicious Treat! Don’t Waste Yogurt!

July 29, 2014 8:36 am

freeze yogurt

Great deals on yogurt are awesome and it’s worth stocking up.  But it is dairy and certainly has an expiration date.    When buying yogurt (or any dairy for that matter) checking the expiration dates and purchasing the product with the longest expiration will give extra time to use up the products.  But then what?    The best solution — freeze the yogurt cups!

Amy wrote and said ~

I was going through my fridge (and coupons) and realized that I have a TON Activia 4 packs that I got free the past couple weeks at Target and have coupons for realllllly cheap ($.50) YoBaby 4 packs that are on Price Cut this week…..so I will stock up. But the expiry dates are only 1 month or so out (MAX), and I would hate to pass up, or have the products go to waste. So I was looking into freezing them and found a great post and thought I would share, and your readers may like it too!!

 

Officially, this what the manufacturers like Stoneyfield and Dannon say:

Does freezing yogurt destroy or alter the effectiveness of the live cultures?
You can freeze a cup of yogurt. A cup of yogurt that has been frozen and thawed will have a different look and texture than fresh yogurt. The cultures become dormant when frozen, but once thawed either in the refrigerator or by your body heat when ingested; they will become live and active once again. There will be a few cultures that do die, but there are so many billions in our products, that it is truly insignificant.

Can DANNON Yogurt Be Frozen? It’s okay to freeze yogurt overnight to pack in a lunch for the following day. However, it won’t be as smooth and creamy as yogurt fresh from the refrigerator. The yogurt may undergo some changes in texture and/or taste. Because some individuals do not find these changes to their liking, it is recommended that you “test freeze” a couple of tablespoons in a small cup before freezing a large quantity. When freezing DANNON Fruit-on-the-Bottom Yogurt, be sure to stir before freezing for the best results.

So that’s good news, many of the cultures come back to life. ZOMBIE YOGURT.

how to freeze yogurt

And I found a tip for those small kids cups of yogurt, stab a Popsicle stick through the top before you freeze it and you’ll have a frozen yogurt Popsicle for the kids!

The main concern I found when reading up on the subject was that plain yogurt and the like tend to separate, though they can be stirred, and tasting it with a spoon may make it apparent it was frozen previously, using it in a recipe would make it not as noticeable.  HOWEVER I think most people are referring to the fruit and sweetened type of yogurt and those are much more stable when frozen and/or thawed.

We’ve had great success freezing cups of yogurt and Go-Gurts, and nothing I’ve found suggests that freezing doesn’t extend the expiration date.

Remember, your household freezer doesn’t keep stuff good as long as a “deep freeze” or a freezer that is only rarely opened. Temperatures are maintained when the door is nearly always shut and the food stays good longer.

So that’s about it. I love feeding my family yogurt because it is so healthy for our “gut” and keeps life moving “regularly”. It is a really good snack too!

Rice Krispie Treat Popsicles

Cute idea for a different take on Rice Krispie Treats.   This is a simple treat but loads of fun for the kids.  This would be a cute idea for Back To School treats or something fun to take into the classroom.

Rice Krispie Treat Popsicles

Rice Krispie Treats recipe
18 popsicle Sticks
13×9 pan
Wax Paper
Chocolate Chips
Sprinkles

Rice Krispie Treats:
3 tablespoonsbutter or margarine
1 package (10 oz., about 40)JET-PUFFED Marshmallows
6 cups Rice Krispies, or Cocoa Krispies cereal

In large saucepan melt butter over low heat. Add marshmallows and stir until completely melted. Remove from heat. Add rice krispies cereal. Stir until well coated.

Chocolate Dip:
1 1/2 cups chocolate chips (white, butterscotch, chocolate or strawberry)
1 Tablespoon Vegetable oil

In small microwave-safe bowl combine chocolate morsels and oil. Microwave on high for 1 to 1 1/2 minutes, stirring every 30 seconds.

 

Rice Krispie Treat Popsicles Assembly:

Press Rice Krispie Treats into the 13 x 9 x 2-inch pan coated with cooking spray.  Cool.  Cut into eighteen 3 x 2-inch bars.  Push one stick into the bottom of each bar. Slightly shape the Rice Krispie Treats edges to resemble an popsicle.   Dip bars into chocolate and into sprinkles.  Place on wax paper lined baking sheet. Refrigerate until chocolate is set.
