YOGURT Squares

A friend of mine bought two quarts of plain Greek yogurt over the summer.  Then, she thought it smelled bad and didn't trust it.   She offered it to me.  I said Greek yogurt usually smells bad; that's how it smells.

I took it off her hands and made these.




I spooned the yogurt into ice cube trays and froze it.  Then, I dumped the cubes into a gallon freezer bag.

When I make smoothies, I pull out 4-5 cubes and blend them up with fruit, soy milk, and juice of any kind.  It's a great way to keep yogurt around long-term and get some extra protein/calcium in a smoothie.  It will work with any type yogurt, doesn't have to be Greek, or smelly.

Well aren't you efficient! Good idea. If I drink a smoothie, I like it ICE cold. So the more that's frozen, the better.

I used to do that. Haven't made smoothies in a while--been too busy!

That's a really great idea and one that I am going to do today. I have a dental appointment and am quite sure that smoothies will be the only thing I will be eating for awhile.

What a great idea! I can pack them in a thermos and let them melt while on the road. Suppose I could just shake it up! Yum!

This actually looks like a fantastic idea. I didn't even know you could freeze yogurt like that. Cool! :)
