Greek Yogurt Fro-Yo Pops

We all scream for ice cream! But when you check how much sugar is in those store-bought ice cream bars and ice pops you’ll be screaming for a different reason! These greek yogurt pops are a naturally sweet snack that will satisfy any teens’ sweet tooth without all of that added sugar.

 

Ingredients:

·      1 16-ounce container of Greek yogurt (2% or 0% fat)

·      2 tablespoons honey

·      1 ½ cups frozen blueberries (or any other berry you have on hand)

 

Directions:

1.     Toss everything in a blender and mix until smooth.

 

2.     Pour the mixture into six ice-pop molds and freeze. If you don’t have ice-pop molds, use small paper cups. When the ice-pops are almost frozen, put a coffee stirrer or ice-cream stick in the center

 

Here are some other things to do with greek yogurt outside of the freezer:
