Make Your Own Yogurt Pops with a Vacuum Sealer
I don't have a vacuum sealer or food saver, but this looks like a great idea for someone that has one!!!!
If you already have a vacuum sealer or food saver, you're already familiar with how well it works to save and store food. If you don't, you probably know someone who does, and with the roll of foil already loaded in the machine and a tub of yogurt, you can make your own yogurt pops in a matter of minutes.
With a food saver, you can essentially create vacuum sealed bags of any size, so Once A Month Mom decided she could make thin, long baggies into which she could spoon her favorite yogurt and then seal off the top. When you see the photo, it's the kind of trick that seems obvious, but since most people use vacuum sealers for meat, cheese, or other perishables, yogurt pops may not spring to mind.
She also notes that you can use the same process for pudding or juice, and then toss them in the freezer for frozen yogurt, pudding pops, or popsicles. If you have a vacuum sealer, what are some of your favorite uses for it?
