See this stuff above? It's always in my kitchen. Every week we go through a couple of yogurt containers and lots and lots of fruit. I love fruit and since it's always around my kids have grown up eating it. So when I saw this recipe, I knew that it was something we had to try.
Miss Maddy and I got all the ingredients washed and ready. We might or might not have eaten close to half in no time flat. I finally had to cut us off by mixing in the yogurt...otherwise there would have been nothing Confetti about our pops.
IngredientsDirections 1. In a large bowl gently stir together the yogurt and fruit. Spoon into 4-ounce ice-pop molds or 3-ounce paper cups. Cover molds or cups with foil; use a sharp knife to cut a small hole in the foil and insert cut side of pretzel rod or snack stick. Freeze until firm. Remove foil and mold or cup before serving.
- 2 cups low-fat vanilla yogurt
- 1 cup assorted berries (raspberries, blueberries, blackberries, chopped strawberries)
- 5 pretzel rods, halved, or 10 baked snack stick crackers
2. Store for up to a month. Makes 6 pops
Since we were making something healthy to snack on...I thought it would be a good idea to spend the time that it would take to freeze these bad boys at the park.
The kids loved the pops. They were a fast and healthy snack that I know will be popping up all summer long at my house.
