Here are a couple of really simple and healthy popsicles that are sure to be a hit with young and old alike.
Tropical Yogurt Pops
1 tub of vanilla yogurt
1 frozen can of mango juice concentrate
Mix ingredient in blender and blend until smooth. Pour into popsicle molds and place in freezer. Serve once they are completely frozen through.
These were a great frozen tropical treat. The boys loved them, Tony included. The only problem we had with them was a few of them came off of the sticks when we tried to pull them out. We just scooped them out and ate it in a bowl, and they were yummy that way too. This makes a lot of popsicles, so I only made a half-batch at a time, which made about 16 smallish popsicles.
1/4 of a large watermelon
Remove watermelon from rind and cut into large chunks. Place in a blender and blend until smooth. Pour into popsicle molds and place in freezer. Serve once they are completely frozen through.
There’s not much to this recipe, it’s just frozen watermelon puree, but these popsicles are so deliciously refreshing. It’s a perfect way to use up extra watermelon. Cole has been asking for these ones a lot lately. Bennett likes them too but it takes him forever to eat one because these are a bit hard for him. He can get through the yogurt ones faster because they’re softer, so I think he likes them better for that reason.
I’ve tried a lot of popsicle ‘experiments’ this summer, and these two recipes were our favourites. I hope you enjoy them too!
