The Easiest Frozen Yogurt Pops Ever!

frozen yogurt popsI saw this idea from Annily Green on Pinterest and HAD to try it! Immediately! :-)

So last night at the grocery store I picked up this four-pack of strawberry yogurt singles, came home, poked in the four popsicle sticks and popped them in the freezer. (Annie used spoons, but the popsicle sticks worked great!)

This morning I had toasted English Muffin Bread for breakfast…mmmmm can’t get enough of that stuff…and completely forgot about my yogurt treats in the freezer.

About 10:00am my internal “I need a snack” alarm went off and I went in search of something to feed the need. After several minutes of unsuccessful foraging in the kitchen I remembered the frozen morsels waiting for me in the freezer! I separated the cups, ran one under hot tap water for about 10 seconds, slipped off the plastic cup and snack time was ON!

What I LOVE about this frozen treat:

They’re FROZEN…duh! I am such a sucker for just about anything (within reason of course!) frozen! I love frozen grapes, bananas, cookies, candy bars, etc, etc, etc …….and now YOGURT!

They are the PERFECT SNACK SIZE!I chose the Activia yogurt singles because they were 4 ounces each instead of the 6 ounces that most of the other brands are. It really was the perfect size. Although I don’t think 2 more ounces would be too bad. :-)

They’re EASY and ECONOMICAL, yet still seem like a bit of an indulgence.

Oh….and they’re DELICIOUS!

Anyway…these made my mouth and tummy so happy…I just had to share!  Enjoy!   :-)

    Just FYI… Freezing kills the active cultures in the yogurt, so if that is a reason for getting the Activia the cultures are no longer alive. Looks delicious though, and I am certainly going to try it.

    I keep reading on my online search that freezing the yogurt does not kill the bacteria, only heat will kill bacteria… I wonder what the truth it…

    The freezing process does not kill any significant amount of the cultures—in fact, during the freezing process the cultures go into a dormant state, but when eaten and returned to a warm temperature within the body, they again become active and are capable of providing all the benefits of cultures in a refrigerated yogurt product.

    Unfortunately, the frozen yogurt loses all creaminess and becomes rock hard and icy. Much like an ice cube, which kills it for me. I like it more like ice cream, which as far as I can tell, requires agitation to take place during the freezing stage. Altho, I have had some success with “butter” popsicles… Nutella, almond butter, and such, with maintaining a creaminess instead of turning so icy. Still searching for that “perfect” home made frozen treat from my childhood, the fudgesicle, which I can buy but I want to make. :) I do still have the Daphne Oz fudgesicle recipe to try from The Chew. I made it once before, but think I used the wrong kind of coconut milk, mine wasn’t canned. So, it came out very icy. I’ll have to try it again using the canned coconut milk. :) Suggestions welcomed!
