Kids love Popsicles. Would you like your kids to eat more fruit? These frozen yogurt pops are the best of both worlds!
The summer is great for being outdoors, going to the beach, barbecues, picnics—and treats! My daughter and I love to cool off with Popsicles and ice cream.
The idea for these Healthy Frozen Yogurt Pops came from the same philosophy behind the frozen yogurt bites I often make in lunches for my daughter.
The concept is easy: Freeze the yogurt in silicone candy or ice cube molds, making them perfect bite-size snacks, or if packing for a long day, they stay chilled and are perfectly thawed by lunch to eat with a spoon. I will oftentimes even blend in fresh fruit before freezing.
This easy snack packs twice the amount of protein thanks to Greek yogurt. You can, of course, use regular yogurt if that’s what you have in your fridge.
I recently found this Pop mold, I knew just what to do with it. A healthy popsicle/ice cream–like treat without all the added sugar and junk! You can find many more healthy summertime treat ideas here on the MOMables blog!
