I haven’t tried this recipe for Fruit and Yogurt Popsicles yet, but it is our morning activity to enjoy for later this sunny afternoon! My kids love when I put them in charge of recipes. They are always entertained using the blender and watching it crush everything.

Creating their own popsicle is going to be a fun and healthy treat! No scary Red 40 ingredient usually found these.

For a fun bonus, allow your kids to use their imagination and put out a variety of sweet additions for everyone to make their popsicle their own. I am thinking rainbow sprinkles (for my daughter), mini chocolate chips (for me), and crushed Oreos (for my son)!

Let me know what flavor popsicles your family makes with this.

Fresh Fruit and Yogurt Popsicles

Ingredients

  • 2 cups of your kids’ favorite fruit -- any berry or bananas work great
  • 2 cups vanilla yogurt or plain yogurt
  • ¼ cup honey
  • ½ cup rainbow sprinkles or mini chocolate chips or crushed Oreos
  • 10 small Dixie cups, 4-ounce size
  • 10 wooden sticks

Directions

In a blender, combine fresh fruit, yogurt and honey until smooth.

Fill paper cups about ¾ full and cover each cup with aluminum foil.

Poke a stick through the center of the foil of each cup.

Make room in your freezer and freeze for at least five hours.

To serve, defrost for about 5-8 minutes and then peel off foil and cups.
