SUPER EASY RECIPE ALERT!!! Have you made yogurt popsicles before? I’ve seen them around, but had never made them myself, until this weekend. And now, I’m hooked!
First, you have to select your yogurt. I’m not sure it makes any difference which flavor or type you use. We had Chobani Kids yogurt pouches on hand, so that’s what we used.
Have you tried these yogurt pouches yet? I have to say, they’re pretty great, especially for my little dairy-obsessed-three-year-old.
The delivery method (pouch) is much easier to use than those GoGurt tubes (and less messy!). And the ingredients in Chobani Kids yogurt is much easier on my conscience too.
We made two-flavor popsicles—Strawberry + Vanilla (with little chocolate flecks in it). We’ve tried all of the Chobani Kids flavors, and they’re each pretty delicious. Mango-Spinach and Pumpkin-Banana are my two favorites.
Anyhow, take your first flavor and add it to your popsicle mold. If you’re using two flavors, only fill the molds half way. If you’re using one flavor, then fill those puppies all the way up!
Since yogurt is wonderfully thick, you don’t have to wait for the first flavor to freeze before adding the second. So, once the first flavor is in, add the second flavor right on top!
Then insert the sticks, place the mold in the freezer and let them freeze. I’m not sure exactly how long these take to freeze…I could do some experiments to find out. We let ours freeze overnight and they were good-to-go the next afternoon!
Oh man, these were SO delicious!! So…a little about me….I am a huge fan of popsicles, in theory. I love the idea that you can use fresh squeezed juice and little bits of actual fruit and freeze it into a solid treat. Super healthy, and with no added sugar, they make a fabulous summer snack.
The reality, though, is that I’m just not a fan of popsicles. I need a creamy texture to really feel like I’m getting a treat…(I blame my dad, for years of ice cream indulgences). So, please believe me when I say, that these yogurt popsicles will be a staple in our freezer this summer.
