Healthy Snacks: Frozen Yogurt Pops
Kids love to eat frozen snacks during the hot summer months—especially ice cream. But sometimes, the frozen ice cream treats you can get at the store aren’t as healthy for your kids. Here’s a frozen yogurt pop recipe that is much better for them!
• 2 cups fresh blueberries, raspberries, strawberries, and sliced bananas, mixed
• 2 cups plain or vanilla yogurt
• ¼ cup white sugar
• 8 small paper cups
• 8 popsicle sticks
- • Place the mixed blueberries, raspberries, strawberries, sliced bananas, yogurt, and sugar into a blender. Cover and blend until fruit is chunky or smooth, as desired.
- • Fill paper cups ¾ full with fruit mixture.
- • Cover the top of each cup with a strip of aluminum foil.
- • Poke a popsicle stick through the center of the foil on each cup.
- • Place the cups in the freezer for at least 5 hours. To serve, remove foil and peel off the paper cup.
You can always use a different fruit if your child doesn’t like the ones listed in the ingredients. Also, if you’re worried about sugar in the snack, you can leave out the ¼ cup of sugar, as the fruit and yogurt should have enough natural sugars.
