Homemade Yogurt Tubes (aka GoGurt Fakes)
By popular demand here’s my method to making my version of GoGurt yogurt tubes or On the Go Yogurts. There are a few other brands out there and when we go to Panera Bread, my son always loves his Horizon Organic version of the GoGurt pops. One day I was talking with a friend and said to her, “Well we could just make our own with the Foodsaver. But that would be in all of my spare time.” Then I needed to get creative with this huge tub of yogurt my husband bought so my son could eat it and not spill everywhere.
I broke out my Foodsaver and got to business. It really was not that hard, and I think they would be great frozen and you could fill the tubes with whatever you like! Juice, pudding, pureed fruit or as Angela told me today you can even fill with fresh pureed basil from your garden! GENIUS!!!
And if you are concerned about the cost, take a look at this post that outlines the “hidden” costs of buying the real thing. Even after adding the cost of the Foodsaver supplies, you aren’t even come close to that cost, especially if you make your own homemade yogurt! And if you don’t want to invest in a Foodsaver how about some silicone ones?And the best part is, you know what is going into them, you aren’t adding extra ingredients to increase the shelf life. It is a win/win!
Homemade Yogurt Tubes or Pops
Kelly @ Onceamonthmom.com
- 16 ounces of Yogurt of your choice or Homemade Yogurt
- Foodsaver rolls
- Gallon Ziploc Bag for storing them all together
First pull out roughly a 4 inch piece of food saver plastic.
Next Seal ONLY one side, then the other leaving about an inch or an inch and a half space in the middle.
Next take a ziploc bag, drape it over a cup, and pour your filling inside.
Cut the end off of the bag, and twist the open side and prep for filling the tubes.
Fill the tube and tap it on the counter a few times to make sure the air bubbles are out and you get a full tube! Leave about a two inch space and seal again.
And boom! There you go instant on the go yogurt pops!
