Summer will be here before we know it. Although, here in Florida it already feels like it with this 90 degree weather! During the summer months, a daily treat in our house are popsicles. I love making them myself and involving the littles when it comes to doing so.
Last week, AG asked if we could make popsicles after she noticed the popsicle molds in the cabinet. Since the wild one was napping, I couldn’t say no. We washed out the molds and went to the fridge to see what we could use to make them. After a quick browse, I grabbed Annie’s whole milk yogurt. It’s a favorite snack for both littles, so I knew it would be even better with fresh fruit added and frozen into cold treats. They’re also a healthier option (sweetened with read fruit and NO artificial flavors, synthetic colors or preservatives) which is always a win when it comes to snacks for my littles.
Homemade popsicles are so easy to make. For this tasty treat, all you need is popsicle molds, Annie’s whole milk yogurt and fresh fruit.
To make the popsicles, I poured two containers of Annie’s whole milk yogurt into two bowls. I added 1/4 cup of fresh fruit to each. Strawberries were added to the summer strawberry yogurt and a mix of blueberries and raspberries were added to the berry patch yogurt. After the fruit was mixed in, I carefully poured them into the molds. They went into the freezer for a few hours, before AG finally begged me to PUHLEASE get them out so she could have one.
After a quick dip under warm water to loosen then up, we had delicious and healthy treats for an afternoon snack.
I also made little yogurt bites for Luke. I placed wax paper onto a cookie sheet. Poured a container of Annie’s whole milk yogurt into a large ziplock bag, cut the tip off the corner of the bag and piped little drops of yogurt onto the wax paper. They went in the freezer for a few hours as well. L loved these and kept signing more when he ran out.
Right now, hurry to your local Publix to get 2 packages of Annie’s whole milk yogurt for just $5. This deal is good through May 27th. You can also check out Annie’s Organic website for lots of recipe ideas.
