    I’ve made a few things from your website for my little one, even I think it’s yummy =)
    With these yoghurt drops, will they melt if not consumed straight away? Are these the same as the Rafferty Garden’s yoghurt buttons?

      They will melt. These are nothing like the dried yoghurt drops you buy, they are cold – frozen yoghurt and melt in the mouth. Ax

    Can these be made with the juice from a strawberry or other fruits too?

      Sorry, just read the article properly. I see it’s open for experimentation.

    Can natural yoghurt be used instead of Greek yoghurt?

    • posted by Allie on February 15, 2015

      Yes of course 🙂

    Hi i haven’t yet made anything for your site yet but it all looks great i just wanted to double check that these would be appropriate to give an 11 month old? i’m hoping that as you’ve mentioned they melt that its a yes.

      im sure an 11month old would love them! Just be careful of the chocking risk

    Made these tonight and a little bitter may try to add honey to next batch. Recipe so simple. Thanks

      I found these a little sour too. Good idea with the honey. What other flavours have people tried?

        You should also be making sure that mums with under 1 year old shouldn’t be giving them honey

        • posted by Allie on October 2, 2015

          There is no honey in this recipe. Ax

    Hi how long will these last in the freezer? Love your website!

    • posted by Allie on May 18, 2015

      1 month?

      • posted by Bree on May 24, 2015

        So it doesn’t matter if the yoghurt’s expiry date has passed by the time the drops are eared since they are frozen?

        • posted by Bree on May 24, 2015

          That should say by the time they are eaten

    I want to try these but can a 9months have lemon.. Or can it be substitute for something else?
    Love all the recipes

      I used plain organic yoghurt and mixed in Aldi organic fruit puree (in the pouch) to sweeten and then froze.
