When you think of things that remind you of summer, I bet popsicles are somewhere in the mix.
We’ve been dealing with a popsicle crisis in this house — Fox eats one and immediately wants another. If it’s not in his hands, he’s devastated.
It’s really become a thing.
I wanted to find a healthier way to satiate his incredible appetite for popsicles.
Late last fall, I shared a recipe for frozen yogurt cups — which we still love, but can get a bit messy with the added granola and expensive when you add things like chia seeds and berries.
I decided to try yogurt popsicles with just the yogurt, but I wanted smaller portions than your run of the mill boxy popsicle mold.
For $7.99 I bought this fun “ring pop”-style mold and poured my yogurt in and stuck in the freezer. After an hour, I checked on them and they were already done!
That was it!
The true test was giving one to Fox — he loved it!
Our first go was 2 weeks ago and he still asks for them daily.
To make them a bit more fun, I add some food coloring which is totally optional, but definitely appreciated amongst the toddler crowd. You can dye the entire pop or attempt your hand at a fancy swirl!
For these ring pops (and in every day yogurt-eating!) we buy Dannon® Oikos® Traditional Greek Yogurt from our local Walmart in the refrigerated section. I love their innovative flavors like Toasted Coconut Vanilla, Banana Cream, and — my personal favorite — Lemon Meringue. Plus, each 5.3 oz. serving has 150 calories and 11 grams of high-quality protein.
What’s your favorite flavor?
