Blueberry Peach Greek Yogurt Popsicles

Blueberry Peach Greek Yogurt Popsicles

Yogurt Pops are insanely easy to make.  All you need is yogurt, some fruit and/or jam, and, if desired, sweetener like honey, sugar, or nut butter. You can even add mix-ins like coconut, nuts, or cookie bits. All you have to do to prepare them is to smash the fruit a bit [or pulverize it for a “smoothie” bar], stir in  your optional sweetener, the yogurt, your mix-ins and freeze. You can also add a little bit of milk to thin it out if you’d like. Want to go dairy free? Use soy yogurt and coconut or almond milk. Want to go sugar free? Sweeten with pulverized bananas or don’t bother sweetening at all! Below is the recipe for the pops we made this weekend followed by a list of the combinations we’ll be trying next:
