Who doesn’t like a good popsicle?
Homemade yogurt popsicles are a great breakfast option when you are on the run in the morning, and they are always a hit for an after-school snack, or for an anytime snack.
Popsicles from fresh yogurt are simple to make. You can add all the bells and whistles that you choose, but here is the basic recipe:
- 1 cup plain or flavored yogurt of choice
- 1 tablespoon sweetener of choice – honey, raw sugar, vanilla extract, cinnamon, Stevia (lessen amount)
- 8 small paper cups or popsicle molds
- 8 popsicle sticks
ADD BELLS AND WHISTLES
Add the bells and whistles that you choose to make these morning popsicles your fav:
- 1 cup fresh fruit of choice –sliced bananas, blueberries, strawberries, or any berry of choice
- 1 cup chopped nuts of choice – place at the bottom of the paper cup before you add the yogurt
- 1/2 cup carob, butterscotch, or chocolate chips
- 1 cup granola
Note: vanilla and flavored yogurt require less sweetener
- Place the berries and sweetener into a blender;
- Cover and blend until fruit is desired texture – chunky or smooth;
- Fill paper cups or popsicle molds starting at the bottom of the container and then layer throughout with berries, nuts, granola, and your other bells and whistles;
- Cover the top of each cup with a strip of wax paper and secure with a rubber band; (I use wax paper as opposed to aluminum foil, and cap if using a popsicle mold)
- Poke a popsicle stick through the center of the wax paper on each cup or mold;
- Place the cups in the freezer for at least 5 hours or overnight;
- Remove wax paper and peel off the container;
