Raspberry-Banana-Yogurt Freezer Pops2013-01-08
Just four ingredients are needed to make these super-tasty popsicles. Feel free to substitute your child’s favorite fruits and flavored yogurt.
- 1 cup low-fat vanilla yogurt
- 1 banana
- 3 cups fresh or frozen raspberries
- 1/2 cup honey
- Ice Cream sticks
- Process yogurt and banana in a blender 30 seconds or until smooth. Bring raspberries and honey to a boil in a medium saucepan over medium-high heat; reduce heat to low, and simmer 5 minutes. Pour mixture through a fine wire-mesh strainer into a bowl, using back of spoon to squeeze out juice and pulp. Discard skins and seeds. Cover and chill raspberry mixture 30 minutes. Pour yogurt mixture evenly into 10 (2-oz.) pop molds. Top with raspberry mixture, and swirl, if desired. Top with lid of pop mold, and insert ice cream sticks, leaving 1 1/2 to 2 inches sticking out of pop. Freeze 6 hours or until sticks are solidly anchored and pops are completely frozen.
Tip: For a different taste, substitute 3 cups fresh or frozen blueberries or halved strawberries.
