Fruit & Yogurt Frozen Pops

Well, Summer is in full swing here with hot weather and thirsty, hungry children! What’s a mom to do about this? Make ice cream! And frozen pops of all kinds! Coming up are some very simple recipes for ice cream and a variety of frozen pops that are easy enough for even smaller children to make, with your help. My kids loved doing these, and they loved eating the results even better.

These healthy pops are made with vanilla yogurt and fresh fruit, although frozen could be used also. You also can obviously use light non-fat yogurt. The original recipe calls for 2 Tbl honey. We used a little more yogurt and excluded the honey completely, and the kids loved them. We made both strawberry ones and mango ones.

So, let’s get cooking!

Wash the fruit and take off anything like leaves, or peel, etc. Cut the fruit into chunks.

Measure out the yogurt.

Place the fruit and yogurt into a blender and blend until well mixed. We stopped when the fruit was almost totally crushed up but there were tiny pieces of it still.

Pour into paper cups.

Add the popsicle sticks. This recipe is thick enough that they do stand up in the middle.

You can also use a hand blender like we did with the mango pops. 

Freeze. We let them go overnight. Enjoy! ~TMMF
