With summer in full swing here in sunny Arizona, I thought it would be fun to create one of America’s favorite summertime treats—popsicles! Most popsicles include loads of sugar and artificial flavors and colors. It drives me slightly crazy when my kiddos leave a trail of melted popsicle dye and their sweet faces are literally stained until a major scrubbing takes place. So I set out on a quest to make a heathier version using fresh, natural ingredients along with Stonyfield Organic Greek Yogurt.
In the spirit of full disclosure, I have a child that has a strange aversion to dairy products (with the exception of sour cream), so the first thing he asked me before even tasting the popsicle was “did you put yogurt in these popsicles”? After avoiding the question, I handed out the popsicles and let them make their own determinations on the flavor. A mixture of pineapple, strawberries, coconut milk and Greek yogurt, I thankfully didn’t have any of my taste testers return their refreshingly sweet summer treat!
With the variety of flavors offered by Stonyfield, I’m excited to experiment and continue on my popsicle making mission. Please feel free to comment and suggest your favorite combinations!
Fresh Fruit & Yogurt Popsicles
1/2 cup Vanilla Stonyfield Organic Greek Yogurt
1/2 cup Pineapple Juice
1/2 cup Fresh or Frozen Pineapple
1/2 cup Fresh or Frozen Strawberries
1/2 cup unsweetened vanilla coconut milk
Add all ingredients to blender, blend until smooth and pour into popsicle molds. Freeze overnight and enjoy!
