Greek Yogurt Pops

Why buy popsicles at the grocery store when you can make healthy pops quickly and easily at home??  This is a great, simple recipe that your kids can make.  Getting them involved in the kitchen is not only fun for them, but helps them to establish better eating habits.  They will love these nutritious frozen treats!


Greek Yogurt Pops

Ingredients:

1 cup plain fat-free or low-fat Greek yogurt
1 cup fresh or frozen blueberries, strawberries, raspberries, blackberries, peaches, etc.
2-3 tablespoons agave nectar or honey or 1/4 cup Stevia in the Raw
4  popsicle molds 

Directions:

Put yogurt, fruit (slightly thawed if using frozen) and agave nectar, stevia or honey into a blender and blend to desired consistency. Pour fruit mixture into popsicle molds filling each about three-quarters full.

Freeze pops until solid, about 5 hours, then they are ready to enjoy.

  2. I love homemade popsicles...I've been pinning a whole bunch to try!! These look super delicious Amee! We're off dairy, but I could try subbing the yogourt for the 'fat' part of coconut milk and I think that would work too. The creamy frozen treats are soooo good! Continuing to vote for you! :)

  8. Thanks for sharing! These would be so easy to make in the morning and have ready by the time the kids come home from school. So cool that the pops have their own little tray to stand on.

  9. Good idea! I make my own yogurt, I'm not sure that that fat content matters, so I might try these with fresh berries tomorrow. I got your link from http://www.frugallocalkitchen.com
