Kids Love These Greek Yogurt Berry Popsicles
When I was a kid, I practically survived the summer on otter pops (anyone else?), but every once in awhile, my mom would get fancy and make homemade popsicles with her nifty Tupperware popsicle mold.
To this day, nothing speaks summer to me more than popsicles, and I love sharing these tasty treats with my own kiddos. The good news is that you don’t have to be fancy to make your own popsicles! Check out this easy popsicle recipe, using only three simple ingredients.
These kid-friendly popsicles are as nutritious as they are delicious. Using greek yogurt as a base for these popsicles offers a full serving of protein, which can be a great alternative for a child who may not be getting other protein-rich foods. Mixing in fresh berries gives an added boost of fiber and essential vitamins and minerals to keep your kiddo healthy, like Vitamin C, folate, and potassium.
This is a versatile recipe, so if your little one can’t have dairy, swap out the Greek Yogurt with a coconut or soy-based yogurt to make these dairy-free.
So if you’re looking for a healthy, filling and fun snack to enjoy with your kids this Summer, try this yummy popsicle recipe - guaranteed to please the whole family, even your pickiest eaters! Get your kids involved in the kitchen by letting them help with the prep work, like mixing in the berries, stirring in the honey, etc.
