Yogurt Popcicles

Homemade Yogurt Popcicles 

This recipe is super simple. It’s a great alternative to ice cream. I like to give these to my toddler because I can control the ingredients and the sugar.

Ingredients:

  • Whole milk yogurt – plain (Stonyfield Organic is our choice)
  • Pureed fruit or fruit/veggie blend
  • Honey (optional)
  • Popcicle molds

Directions:

1. Prepare a fruit puree (see my previous posts for suggestions) or use a preprepared baby food pouch.

2. Spoon 1/2 Cup of plain yogurt into a bowl.

3. Add fruit puree to yogurt. Add as much as you like -to taste. I normally use 1/4 cup, but have used as much as 1/2 Cup. 

4. Add 1/2 to 1 teaspoon of honey, depending on the sweetness of your fruit.

5. Spoon  into popcicle molds and freeze.

I normally use whatever fruit I have that is getting close to the end of its life.

Favorite flavors: 

  • Strawberry, blueberry, and blackberry
  • Peach and banana 
  • Cherry and strawberry 
  • Peach and mango

Favorite popcicle molds:

These are fun shaped silicone molds. Silicone molds make them very easy to come out (even without running under water). I really like these molds for toddlers and small children because they are much smaller than standard sized popcicles.
