I hate sneaking food into my children's diets, so I thought I would share some of the recipes that I make with my kids (ages 4 & 2)! When kids help cook, they rarely avoid the food because they helped to make it! I'll try to note steps that even the youngest children can help with in the kitchen!
Okay....even if you never step foot in the kitchen, you can make this one! It's not really a recipe, but more of an idea of a great summer treat and something to do with yogurt that is nearing it's expiration date!This is definitely a great recipe for you, even if you don't have kids!
What you'll need to make it!
Yogurt in it's original package in your favorite flavors
(We like the kid-size Dannon and Yoplait)
Popsicles sticks (you can purchase at most kitchen/cooking supply and some craft stores (near the cake decorating supplies))
As a reminder, this doesn't work well with yogurt containers that have a top smaller than the bottom because you can't get your popsicles out once they've frozen! In addition, this is a great way to avoid throwing away yogurt that is nearing it's expiration date since it will last longer in the freezer!
How to make it!
It's as easy as sticking the popsicle stick through the foil cover on your yogurt cups and placing them in the freezer to harden. We normally let them sit overnight, but a few hours should work well! The foil keeps your sticks centered and avoids freezer-burn!
Yogurtsicles should keep in the freezer for one to two months after you make them and they make a great healthy after school treat!
