Family Food Faves

I'm always looking for new, fun & healthy meals/ treats for the boys. They love to eat popsicles so I thought these frozen yogurt pops would be a good alternative. They're a good way to sneak more protein, calcium and fruit into a sweet, yummy, cold treat!

I use popsicle mold like these

but the recipes say you can use little dixie cups with popsicle sticks instead.

Fruit Freezies

Makes 4 popsicles

8 ounces Key lime yogurt

1/3 cup frozen blueberries

In a medium bowl, stir the yogurt until it is smooth. Fold in the blueberries. Spoon the mixture into popsicle molds or dixie cups and insert the sticks. Freeze for 2 hours or until firm.

Play around with your favorite flavor combinations...

strawberry yogurt with banana pieces

peach yogurt with strawberry pieces

lemon yogurt with raspberries

I have not tried this recipe but it sounds good too

Frozen Fruit Pops

3 cartons (6 ounces each) raspberry yogurt

2 tablespoons lemon juice

2 medium ripe bananas, cut into chunks

12 popsicle molds or dixie cups

In a blender, combine the yogurt, lemon juice and bananas; cover and process for 45 seconds or until smooth. Spoon into molds or cups and freeze for 2 hours or until firm.
