Yummy Fruit & Frozen Yogurt Pops [Recipe]

I don’t know about you, but when summer comes around I’m always craving ice cream. While indulging in this delectable dessert is a great way to beat the heat, a lot of store bought ice cream/popsicles are often loaded with artificial sugars, sweeteners and a lot of other not-so-good-for-you additives. That’s why I came up with a healthier and still very tasty alternative – frozen fruit and yogurt pops. Try this recipe and I promise you, your taste buds will love you!

Here’s what you will need:

  • 1 ½ cup plain vanilla yogurt (or your choice of flavour)
  • 1/2 cup of sliced fruit (strawberries, blueberries and kiwi – or your choice of fruit)
  • Large silicone ice cube tray (6 cubes)
  • 6 popsicle sticks

Directions:

  1. Place in the freezer for 4-6 hours.
  1. Take out of the freezer and serve.

Side Note: I choose to use a silicone ice cube tray because it’s easier to remove the frozen popsicles out of this type of container rather than a traditional plastic ice cube tray.

  1. The recipes on your blog all sound fantastic! I’m a big fan on making my own frozen snacks in the summer. It’s nice to good sense of how much sugar and specifically what ingredients have gone into my frozen treats.
