Summer Fun Series: DIY Yogurt Pops
Beat the heat with this fun and easy summer treat. One of my friends made these for her kiddos so I took a cue from her and made them for my munchkins!
You just need two simple ingredients.
1- those DIY popsicle makers that you can buy almost anywhere during the summer. I got mine at the Dollar General store for less than $5 and they even have the cool little straw on the side.
2- Yogurt: You can use whatever kind of yogurt you have in the fridge. We had a few go-gurts left so I thought it would be fun to use them. They always have fun flavors and bright colors.
Variations: You can also use frozen or fresh fruit to make it a healthier treat.
First, layer the yogurt into each slot. One Go-gurt wouldn't completely fill up a slot so I decided to use a different flavor to finish filling it. As you can see they made an awesome two flavor swirl! Get as creative as you want!
Place in the freezer for a few hours then take them out. I placed the whole kit in a bowl of warm water for a minute or so to help ease them out before giving them to the kids. I've been known to pull them out too hard and come up with nothing but a stick...LOL.
