My kids are just like every other I have met. They LOVE those yogurt tubes you can buy at the store. They especially love them frozen!
So for a more economic option and one that I can have complete control over the ingredients with, we have started keeping a constant supply of these frozen yogurt push pops in our freezer.
Whether you pour in leftover smoothie to freeze or try the recipe below, I am sure your kids will be equally eager to eat this novelty DIY froyo push pop as they are the store-bought alternatives.
1 cup strawberries, washed and hulled
1-2 Tablespoons honey (depending on desired sweetness)
Two 4-ounce containers of 4% strawberry-rhubarb @siggisdairy yogurt
- Quarter and then roughly chop strawberries into small 1/2" pieces.
- Put berries in a small sauce pan with honey. Heat on low until strawberries are soft/macerated. Remove from heat and let cool.
- Spoon yogurt into blender or food processor. Add strawberry mixture in as well, then blend/pulse until well-combined.
- Pour strawberry-yogurt mixture into push pop molds. Freeze for 2-3 hours, or until firm.
- Remove from freezer and allow to sit for ~5 minutes. Take off the top, push yogurt pop up, and enjoy!
Get creative! This recipe is versatile to make with any combo of seasonal summer fruits, fruit jam or compote, and a complimentary flavor of yogurt.
These molds are designed so the popsicles slides back down when not actively being pushed up. This can be challenging for little hands with weaker grips (i.e. under 3). To solve this, we use a chip clip as a clamp to keep it moving its way up as they eat! There is a disposable option as well though that this issue doesn't seem to happen with. Both are shown below!
