Getting kids to eat their vegetables can sometimes feel like an uphill battle. Luckily, TikTok account Crafty Moms (@craftymoms) shared a clever tutorial for making nutrient-packed yogurt drops, which provide a healthy serving of vegetables in a way kids will love!
Not only do beets give the yogurt drops a fun vibrant pink color, but they’re also packed with nutrients and are a high source of iron and antioxidants.
The filmer begins by adding the vanilla yogurt to a mixing bowl, followed by steamed and puréed beets. After thoroughly mixing the ingredients, they then pour the hot pink paste into the heart-shaped compartments of a silicone mold.
Next, they scrape off any excess ingredients using a spatula before covering the mold with plastic wrap and placing it in the freezer.
After letting the yogurt drops freeze overnight, they finally peel each heart-shaped yogurt drop out of the mold, then arrange them in a small serving bowl.
The finished product is a cute, colorful snack that’s both healthy and tasty.
Many viewers took to the comments to share their enthusiasm for the crafty and nutritious technique.
“Wow, loveeeeee this!!! I did it, [and it was] amazing!” one user raved.
“Wow! I need to try this,” mentioned one TikToker.
“I love this idea,” complimented one viewer.
“Lovely hearts,” chimed in another admirer.
