Can you feel it?
Summer is around the corner and I am so excited!
Today, I’m sharing a sweet, yet healthy (well healthier!) treat that takes five seconds. I guess you could get nit picky and time yourself and find it takes 30 seconds. But five seconds sounds better and yes, this is really fast. ;) I mean, I almost feel silly posting it…
I grabbed some yogurt cups from the store. I found that the cutest ones were these Chobani Greek Yogurt ones with some awesome flavors. For $2 a pack, I just had to snatch them up! There were some Activia ones that were a good size as well.
I cut a slit into the top and popped popsicle sticks in. Done!
One cut went out of control so I added a swatch of packing tape on top and tried again. No sweat.
I popped them in the freezer. A few hours later, we had the perfect after school treat. The connected cups act as a tray but better. Just pop off the one you want and you’re set.
You’ll want to let them thaw a bit first, or run them under warm water for a few seconds to make unmolding them easier. You could even pack it in a picnic like this, unopened. By the time you’re ready for dessert, your yogurt pop will be ready!
I also tried it with some Walmart store brand yogurt. The cup was a bit large for my liking but I knew my kids would like the blueberry flavor so I went with it.
I was right! Blueberry was a hit and the larger cup wasn’t actually so bad. They begged for it for dessert after dinner as well.
Most yogurts have a lot of sugar, so it’s not completely health nutty, but it’s a nice alternative to ice cream or all sugar popsicles and it’s nutritious.
I originally made these as a treat for my boys but found it to be a great treat for me as well! I find that I eat less, enjoy it more, and feel more satisfied when I am done with a frozen yogurt pop over just a cup of yogurt. Oh and the raspberry dark chocolate Chobani was completely delightful!
That’s something to celebrate…
Have a great weekend!
P.S. I have a LOT of sewing and crafting and guest posting coming up after our move. Thanks for hanging in there with me. ;)
