Greek Yogurt & Berry Popsicles

The weather is getting a little bit warmer and I was daydreaming about BBQs, going to the lake, tennis, and berry picking when I remembered this recipe I would make on a weekly basis last summer.  Because who wants to spend $4.99 on a box of mediocre frozen treats when you can make your own? Sometimes I would add 1/2 or a whole scoop of vanilla protein powder if I knew I was going to be wanting them after a workout.  You can do the same or mix it up with different fruit/greek yogurt flavors.

popsicle

  • 1 cup Plain, fat free greek yogurt
  • 1 cup Almond milk or low fat milk
  • 4-5 Packets of Stevia
  • 1 1/2 cup Mixed fresh or frozen berries (I used blueberries, strawberries, and blackberries)
  • Optional add ins: 1/2 banana, protein powder, 1 Tbs cheesecake pudding mix

Mix all ingredients in the blender. Save a few whole berries and toss in before you pour into popsicle molds if you so choose. Freeze 5 hours – overnight.

Makes six popsicles (obviously depends on the size of mold you have) If you don’t have them, do it the summer camp way of pouring it into dixie cups with a popsicle stick.
