Ever since I started making my own “frozen yogurt pops” with the help of ALREADY MADE Activia yogurt…I have been dying to try them using the more “exotic” flavors that Yoplait has to offer. Like Pina Colada! YUM!
But alas, the silly inverted shape of their yogurt cups make it impossible to turn them into yogurt pops using the “popsicle stick through the lid method”.
Of course being the obsessive person that I am…I just couldn’t let it go!
So yesterday I bought 3 kinds of Yoplait yogurt I’ve really been wanting to try frozen on a stick…PINA COLADA, ORANGE CREME and, of course, LEMON BURST.
I figured I would either FIND a way to make it work….or just dump it out into a bowl and freeze it that way. (Of course it’s not the same…but I would have to suffer.)
When I got home I turned the yogurt container upside down and decided to see what I could do with my small paring knife. Much to my amazement….the bottom of those things is VERY easy to just cut out! It popped out easily on all three yogurt cups I tried.
After removing the bottom (which is now the top), I covered the top (which was the bottom) with a small piece of foil, stuck in the popsicle stick, and threw it in the freezer.
A few hours later…..I was enjoying the frozen yogurt of my dreams. :-)
If you haven’t tried these (or the Activia ones) you are really missing out!
They are the perfect summertime (or ANYTIME!) treat!
