Last year, I posted my DIY ” Go-Gurt,” and ever since I have meant to post a few more flavors.
A little recap of how I got into making my own “Go-Gurt.” I have always been a little disappointed with the sugar content of kids yogurt, and have found that simply blending fruit with plain yogurt is just as tasty. Even if you choose to add honey or a little sugar to your DIY “Go-Gurt,” it will still be much less sugar than what you find in pre-packaged yogurt. I decided to take this up a notch, and add hidden veggies to this already healthy snack.
I use these “Zipcicles” to make my DIY “Go-Gurts”. If you want something reusable, you can use these silicone molds as well.
I made three flavors of this Hidden Veggie “Go-Gurt.” I didn’t make a special shopping trip for these recipes; I just matched up the fruits and veggies in my fridge by color. Orange fruit with an orange vegetable. This is how you hide those veggies! If you aren’t into the flavors I made, then think about any smoothie you would make using fruits and veggies. Use those flavors.
Three “Hidden Veggie Go-Gurt” recipes.
For each recipe, you will want to put all of the ingredients in your blender and blend. THEN, use a funnel to get the yogurt into each yogurt bag.
Apricot with hidden carrots
1 1/2 cups of yogurt ( or plain Greek yogurt)
1 carrot, peeled and cut
1 tablespoon of honey ( or your choice of sweetener)
Banana-lime with hidden spinach
1 cup of plain yogurt ( or plain Greek yogurt)
1/2 cup of fresh spinach
juice and zest of one lime
1 banana ( used as the sweetener)
Strawberry-Blueberry Banana with hidden spinach
1 cup of plain yogurt
1/2 cup of fresh spinach
3/4 cup of berries ( strawberries and blueberries. any ratio you like)
1 banana ( used as the sweetener)
I didn’t include the vegetable when I marked each bag ( although in my house, it doesn’t matter. My kids don’t read yet)
I am sure that there are so many ways you can hide vegetables in your kid’s yogurt. There are MANY fun combos I bet you could come up with! My Three-year-old asked for the “lime green” one. The lime spinach one is very similar to the smoothie he always asks for.
Just wondering if I could use a dairy free substitute? Allergies🙄
These look amazing! My kids love “go-gurt” and I already make homemade yogurt so adding veggies would be great! How many yogurt tubes does one recipe fill?
How long would these stay good in the fridge or freezer?
The fridge- probably a week or two
Freezer- 6 months
Wouldn’t the carrots be chunky even using a blender? Wouldn’t juicing it be better first? I would just be afraid of chunks in the go gurt and then my son not wanting to eat if it had carrot chunks.
You could certainly try that! 🙂
Hi! Would you allow me to link this recipe on one of my recent blog posts regarding picky eaters? I just love it!!
My 22 month old always gets a diaper rash after eating spinach… what else do you suggest I use in the last two RECIPES you posted?
you could use any green. Swiss chard or Kale are good ones. Think of what veggies you might add to a smoothie.
Do you cook the veggies first … might be a dumb question
I didn’t I treated the veggies the same way as I would when making a smoothie.
I have never seen zipZicle plastic baggies before! Blew my mind to see this! How cool!
[…] There’s not more my kid’s love than yogurt. And there’s not much they love less than veggies! I can’t wait to this veggie-packed snack from Kristen at Make the Best of Everything. […]
how long can i store this?
It can be stored in the freezer for several months. Fridge- check the date on the yogurt container.
Our kids love “go-gurt” so we decided to give this a try! We even included it in our 12 Hidden Veggie recipe roundup. You can see it on our blog. thanks for a fun and yummy recipe!

Do you have to steam the veggies first or just put them in the blender raw?
I always put mine in raw- just like you would in a smoothie.
Oops just asKed u this same queation did see this at first sorry
I JUST GOT MY ZIPZICLES IN THE MAIL TODAY THAT I ORDERED ON AMAZON SO THAT I CAN TRY THESE SINCE MY DAUGHTER LOVES GOGURT AND YOGURT FOR THAT MATTER AND I NEED TO GET MORE VEGGIES IN HER. THANKS FOR THE RECIPES!!!
You’re welcome! If you are looking for more recipes- look to Green smoothies for inspiration!
These all sound great , is there any others that I could try? Like orange or Apple . just wondering.
I would love to try these but am unsure where to find these bags.
You can find them on Amazon 🙂
[…] Here are a few ideas (see the full recipes from Kristen here) […]
Does the lime juice keep the banana from browning?
I dont think so. But the spinach will give it some nice color
I’m so excited to try this with my super picky Gogurt loving 2 year old. About how many little bags can you fill with each recipe listed above?
gosh. I don’t remember. Maybe 6-8?
Can I just say “THANK YOU?!” I did my own spin on these using your framework and the fruits and veggies that I had at home. My 2 year old LOVES THEM! She is constantly asking for them. Awesome. Thanks!
Can these be made ahead and stored in the freezer?
This is a great idea. I am all game for trying this especially if it will get my youngest son to eat more veggies.
That is a wonderful concept! My kids would definitely love this, so I’ll have to try this sometime.
Thanks for this recipes! Will try it my way too! Hopefully kids will love it.
Those look really tasty. What a great idea. I never even thought to make these myself.
That is such an awesome idea. I love this and I think my kids would love these, too! I am going to try these.
Yum, I would ask for the lime one too! 🙂 It was almost 90 degrees last night so I could have used one of these for a snack.
Okay, this post has decided it for me. I’m moving into your house. You have the best recipes. I’m pinning this and making them for myself 🙂
