With the warmer weather gracing us lately, what better way to celebrate than with a yummy, cold treat for the little ones?

No, not ice cream, but a much healthier version that you can make yourself at home with just three ingredients! With this recipe, you can change up the fruit and create your own version. It's that easy. You can even get the kids involved in making these. 

Yields 6-8 popsicles, depending on the size of molds or cups used.

Ingredients

  • 1 cup Greek yogurt 
  • 1 cup either fresh or frozen fruit such as strawberries and blueberries
  • 2 tablespoons honey 
  • 1 set of 6 popsicle molds (if you do not have a popsicle mold, you can also use small paper cups, wooden sticks, and aluminum foil)

Method

  1. In a blender or a food processor, add the Greek yogurt, fresh or frozen fruit, and honey, blending until the mixture is smooth and creamy.
  2. Fill each of the popsicle molds and add the top. Place the mold in the freezer and freeze for several hours or until the popsicles are frozen solid. Remove the tops from the mold and enjoy!
  3. If you are using paper cups, follow the same process but do not overfill the cups. Place the paper cups on a large plate and cover with the aluminum foil. Make one small slit in the top of the foil over each cup and add a wooden stick (the foil will help support the stick until the popsicle freezes). Once the popsicles are frozen, peel the paper cup away from the popsicle.

    this recipe has honey, I thought we shouldn’t feed honey to a child under the age of 2. Is that correct?

      Please go with your doctor’s recommendation, however the typical suggestion is to not feed honey to children under one year of age. Thanks for asking!
