They’re great any time of year really. A great treat to keep in the freezer that is made with organic ingredients and a healthy snack for kids too.
Here’s the basic idea you can see here below using small cups
You just need a few ingredients and some small dixie style cups to make these healthy popsicles. I used plain yogurt you see here because it was on sale at one of my favorite natural food markets, Sprouts, the strawberries were too, and you can either buy boxed granola or the kind in the large bins they have there. Here is the frozen yogurt pops recipe to keep handy.
How to make homemade frozen yogurt pops
You will need:
- Fresh strawberries
- Dixie cups – small size or use larger version
- Wooden taster spoons
Frozen Yogurt Pops
- 1 pint strawberries sliced
- 1 cup yogurt we used plain
- 2/3 cups sugar
- ¼ cup honey
- ½ cup granola
- 8 small Dixie Cups
- 8 small wooden popsicle sticks
- 8 pieces aluminum foil cut slightly larger than the opening of the cup
- Blend your strawberries in a food processor and then add your yogurt, sugar, and honey. Blend well.
- Add the granola and blend again. Fill your Dixie cups about 2/3 of the way full and cover with foil.
- Fold the foil over the cup and insert the popsicle stick about 3/4 of the way down into the cup, freeze for at least 2 hours. When frozen peel the cup off and enjoy!
You can vary this recipe according to the type of fruit you like, though strawberry works really well. You could combine fruits and do half strawberry and half blueberry too! What I like is you know exactly what you’re including in this recipe and can swap out or omit some ingredients. you can even add some flax seeds into it and your kids wouldn’t know the difference…you will love these homemade popsicles too!
If you buy a lot of organic produce and groceries there is a huge sale going on now at Sprouts, that’s where I grabbed everything I needed for these (other than the sticks and cups I already had at home). Check out everything that is sale during this event right here.
Try these frozen yogurt popsicles in any fruit flavor you like for Summertime, it’s a great and nutritious treat!
