Yogurt Popsicles

MSCD beginner recipe

Is it hot where you are? A few days ago the heat index was 118 here. Even the flies are sweating. But something good has come of this heat - this recipe. Well, I guess it's not really a recipe, but a method. An easy, cold, wonderfully delicious method for making healthy, fruit juice sweetened yogurt popsicles. 

You'll need:
1 (6 oz.) container Cascade Fresh yogurt (pick your favorite flavor)
1 popsicle stick

Step 1: Peel back the foil top and stir to mix the yogurt and fruit.

Step 2: Press the foil top back onto the yogurt cup. Slice a small opening in the foil, big enough for a popsicle stick.

Step 3: Insert popsicle stick. 

Repeat as many times as your freezer space allows!

Step 4: Place yogurt in the freezer for several hours, until fully frozen.

Step 5: Remove foil top and run water over the outside of the yogurt cup for a few seconds until the popsicle releases.

Step 6: The best step: Enjoy your healthy popsicle!

Pictured is the toothless grin of my son Tucker. He's not always a willing guinea pig for Momma's new recipes, but he was more than happy to help me sample this one!

Note: We've tried several different flavors for these popsicles, but our favorite by far is Cascade Fresh's Orange Cream. Remember those Orange Creamsicles from childhood? That's what these taste like. And the Lemon Chiffon pictured above reminds me of those frozen lemon icees in a cup I used to get at Six Flags. 

Now go make food memories with your kids, except this time make them healthy ones!
