Apple Yogurt

This yogurt is one that I’ve offered my kids from the very beginning of their journey with solids because it’s easy to keep the ingredients on hand, and it takes only seconds to make.

Yogurt is a great food for kids because it’s rich in calcium, probiotics, and protein—and it’s a really versatile base for adding flavor.

In this version, I use applesauce to add the apple flavor because it’s the fastest option. I have a few variations to use other forms of apples so you can do what sounds best to you.

Ingredients You Need

Here’s a look at what you need for this recipe:

  • Plain yogurt: I prefer whole milk yogurt, but low fat or vanilla is totally fine, too. You can use regular or Greek style. The only difference is the thickness.
  • Applesauce: I usually use a smooth unsweetened variety, but you can use the type you prefer.
  • Optional ingredients: Cinnamon, hemp seeds, sprinkle of granola.

Ingredient Substitutions

You can use plain nondairy yogurt if you need to make this without dairy. Look for options from Siggis or Kite Hill or any that you prefer.

You can trade in Stewed Apples or Sauteed Apples if you prefer.

Leave the apples chunky or you can blend up the whole mixture to form a smooth yogurt.

Use homemade Applesauce or store bought.

Frequently Asked Questions

Do apples and yogurt go together?

The mellow flavors of both apples and yogurt make a great pair. And applesauce adds nice flavor and ample natural sweetness to the yogurt—and helps to balance the yogurt if it’s very tart.

What kind of apples are best for this recipe?

I prefer to use applesauce since it’s quick and easy. You can also use Stewed Apples or Sauted Apples.

Is this a good baby yogurt?

Yes, it’s a great baby food option, whether served on a spoon or in a reusable pouch. (You can even stir in instant oats to make a fast Overnight Oats variation.)

How to Store

You can store in airtight containers in the fridge for up to 5 days. You can also store them in reusable baby food pouches and serve them right in the pouch if that’s easier for you.

  • Serve with a spoon or in a reusable pouch.
  • Trade in Stewed Apples or Sauted Apples and serve chunky or blend in a blender before mixing together with the yogurt.
