I have been out of easy finger foods (that don't make a mess like bananas or avacado if squished and thrown, which Riggs just loves to do) for a few weeks, but loathe to go and buy any at the store. They are so expensive for the organic ones, and they still have more ingredients than is ideal. So I finally got around to making some yesterday, and I was pretty happy with the results.
First I made some yogurt drops, with blueberries, plain yogurt and a little agave. I mixed them all together in the blender and for some reason they got really soupy and so the 'drops' were pretty flat and disc-like. Riggs still loved them, but I'll have to figure out what I did wrong in the next batch so they're more 'drop' shaped and easier for him to pick up off his tray.
This picture from pinterest [with the caption 'yogurt drop fail'] cracked me up because it looks exactly like my first batch, before I got a method for squeezing the runny yogurt out of the bag:
Next time I think I'll try to make them look more fancy too, like this:
Then I made some carrot 'chips', which was really easy and Riggs loved these. I did too, they were soooo good. I just need to get my mandolin out and make the slices a bit more substantial and they would be perfect. I followed these instructions, and am now excited about making other veggie chips.
