Summer offers its fair share of temptations in the dessert department–ooey gooey s’mores? I’ll take three. Decadent ice cream? Count me in. Sugary, delicious fruit cobbler a la mode? I’m there! But sometimes, all you need for a delicious, refreshing summer dessert are healthy ingredients! These popsicles are made with fresh fruit, fat free yogurt and a little milk, in a form that feels like a splurge! This is definitely one summer treat I can feel good about.
These popsicle molds were $1 at Walmart but if you don’t have your own, there are other methods that you can use. Ice trays with trimmed toothpicks make bite size treats, while Dixie cups and popsicle sticks make slightly bigger pops.
This recipe is super flexible and is a great project to do with kids. Before lunch let them choose what fruits, yogurts or juices to add. Then stick them in the freezer, and come back in a few hours for the perfect (healthy!) afternoon treat.
What You’ll Need:
1 ripe peach, skinned and diced
1 cup strawberries, trimmed
1 cup fat-free vanilla yogurt
1/4 cup to 1 cup milk
What to Do:
Setting aside a small amount of chopped peaches and strawberries, blend all of the ingredients in a blender until completely pureed. Add more milk as necessary help everything blend together. Pour the mixture into your popsicle molds and add the fruit pieces, pressing down into the cup. Put your popsicle mold caps on (or insert popsicle sticks) and freeze for at least four hours.
Run the molds under warm water for ten seconds to loosen it up, then gently remove the popsicles from the mold. Delish!
