pop time {recipe}

These simple treats are so easy peasy it kills me! Prepare for many more yogurt adventures as I attempt to fill that sweet craving with some healthier alternatives...

Sweet & Salty Yogurt Pops:
~1/2 cup honey
~1 quart plain yogurt
~ 2 cups partially thawed frozen fruit (I used mangos, blueberries, and raspberries)
~thick pretzel sticks

>Mix yogurt & honey in a medium sized bowl. 
>Stir in fruit
>Pour into pop forms (i used plastic dixie cups)
>Place in freezer 
>20 minutes after you put them in the freezer, go ahead and pop in those pretzel sticks :)
>Now leave in freezer for an additional 2.5 hours or over night. 
>Serve on ice to prevent INSTANT melting

*I did find that after a short bit of pop tasting, the pretzels sticks would get soggy and break in half...sad face...maybe you could make a smaller pop or use a traditional popsicle stick.*

Find more great Yogurt Pop Recipes on Pinterest...I found this one similar to mine...chances are this isn't very original...since I'm pretty sure most of my cooking ideas stem from days in the kitchen as a little girl watching my mother do her magic...

  1. Never thought to use Pretzel for the stick! Maybe you could dip it in chocolate, maybe that would help keep it from getting soggy and breaking??
