yogurt pops

summer is in full swing
and it is hot, hot, hot
which is the perfect weather 
for frozen treats
these are guilt free
but taste oh so sinful
enjoy a handful after dinner tonight!
frozen yogurt pops
(printable recipe)
2 cups fruit
2 cups plain non-fat yogurt (i use greek yogurt)
1/2 cup sugar
juice from 1/2 lemon
1 tsp vanilla
pinch of salt


process the fruit, juice, salt and vanilla in a blender or food processor until pureed.  at this point, if you don't like seeds in your pops, strain. pour in yogurt and pulse a few times.  taste for sweetness and add additional sweetener if needed.  pour into popsicle molds, or dixie cups and freeze.

  9. These look delicious! Nothing like the yuck I had going on. It's not wheatgrass and doesn't even have any in it. It's made from a bunch of greenish fruits and vegetables. It's called "Refreshing Top O' the Mornin' Green Smoothie" and these photos were taken BEFORE the fish oil was added. It smells um, erm, uh, not as bad as you'd think.

  13. Hi Christy, thanks for stopping by my blog! I enjoyed reading about how you got your first easy A in college with Wordsworth's poem -- thanks for sharing! It's wonderful how you could still remember the poem in college. I guess we never really forget the beautiful things that were given to us when growing up. =D

    Your yogurt pops look so yummy and refreshing! Just the thing to have on a hot summer day. Enjoy the weekend!

  14. I love greek yogurt! We make something like this a lot but rarely get to freezing them - we drink them too fast. Dipping them in candies sure looks fun!

  16. I don't really care for yogurt but these look very interesting. Maybe I should give them a try. I loved going out west to see the sites. There's just so many wide open spaces. Great Y post.
