My kiddos absolutely love my homemade Instant Pot Yogurt recipe! So I decided to find a fun new way for them to eat their favorite snack! I found these Disposable Popsicle/Yogurt Tubes and decided to try them out!

**If you’re new to the Instant Pot, Start Here! 🙂
Start out with a gallon of homemade Instant Pot Yogurt and a Jar (or two) of your favorite fruit compote. I made Instant Pot Blueberry Compote and Instant Pot Strawberry Compote for these Yogurt Tubes and they were delicious!

I used these Disposable Popsicle/Yogurt Tubes and I was very impressed with how easy the funnel was to use!

Start by mixing half of the yogurt with the Instant Pot Strawberry Compote and half of the yogurt with the Instant Pot Blueberry Compote. Use a ladle or big spoon to carefully pour the yogurt and compote mixture into the funnel and allow it to drain into the Disposable Popsicle/Yogurt Tubes.

Prepare to have fun and get a little bit messy 🙂 you will have some delicious yogurt tubes in no time! You can then freeze the yogurt tubes or store them in the fridge. 🙂
