You don’t need molds or other fancy decorating supplies to make these pretty eggs—just a few simple items you probably already have on hand. Once the yogurt is frozen, it really takes on an ice-creamy consistency—your kids will feel like they’re getting a treat, but it’s one you can feel good about because it’s made from your favorite brand of healthy yogurt!
After you make the egg shape, your little ones can help pipe on their own decorations. Enjoy the finished treats right away or save them so that your freezer is stocked with a fun, nutritious, and delicious snack come Easter Day.

How To Make It
- Line a cookie sheet with wax paper.
- In small bowls, mix yogurt and food coloring to create the colors of your choice. (Alternatively, you can use fruit-flavored yogurts that are naturally tinted various colors after stirring—just remove any large fruit chunks.)
- Spoon ¼ cup of each color of yogurt into a separate plastic baggie. Snip off a very small portion of the corner of each baggie to create a piping bag just before you’re ready to use it.
- Pipe yogurt onto wax paper in the shape of an egg. You can do this free-hand or by placing an oval-shaped cookie cutter on the wax paper and piping the yogurt into it.
- Using baggies filled with contrasting colors of yogurt, pipe zig-zag and polka-dot designs onto each egg.
- Place the cookie sheet in the freezer for 2 to 3 hours or until eggs are frozen solid. (If kids are doing the decorating, it may be easier to partially freeze the egg shapes first, then pipe on the designs and refreeze.)
- Once solid, enjoy immediately or transfer finished eggs into a freezer bag and store in the freezer.
