I admit to having a sweet tooth and enjoying my desserts. And it just so happens that the kids also love sweet treats. However, we can’t be eating chocolate, ice cream and popsicles on a daily basis, you know, too much sugar, unhealthy and that sort of thing. So a while back when someone mentioned the idea of freezing yogurt, I decided to try it out. Not only were they easy and healthy, it was fun to make and tasted delicious!
– aluminum foil (which you can reuse when you make them again and again)
– clean popsicle sticks
– a small spoon
– your favorite fruit yogurt (you can also use plain yogurt, puree some fruit and mix it together)
1. Tear off a piece of foil and fold it in half. This makes it a little sturdier. With your teaspoon, take a dollop of yogurt and drip it on the foil. Then place one end of the popsicle stick on top of the yogurt.
3. Place your piece of foil directly into the freezer. It only needs about 25-30 minutes to freeze.
4. Then voila, they are ready to eat. Simple, delicious and healthy. You and the kids won’t be able to stop eating them! On a warm day, these are perfect to make quickly before lunch and once lunch is finished, your sweet treats will be ready!
I would recommend eating them all in one day though so they are not sitting uncovered in the freezer for a week. But trust me, they will disappear very quickly once you try them!
*If you’re dairy-free, this works well with coconut yogurt too.
