All this week, my little guy's class is studying about dinosaurs. We love dinosaurs in our house. So, of course, one of his lunches had to be a dinosaur theme. I froze some of the yogurt in a dinosaur shaped Jello mold to make the frozen yogurt dino. I wish I had frozen a different colored yogurt to make it stand out more, but it's still cute. This is a great idea for keeping the yogurt cold. By lunch time, it will have thawed enough to eat. Plus, this adds a ton of cuteness to a lunch. I've seen several other food bloggers freeze yogurt like this in a variety of cute shapes....stars, animals, flowers. Any cute shape Jello mold or ice cube mold will work great. I'm on the lookout now for cute shaped molds!
