This is a great way to get my fruit-averse younger daughter to eat some fruit. You can use strawberries or raspberries, if you prefer, but blueberries are a big hit with my kids. You don't need fancy molds for these popsicles--just some paper cups and craft sticks, which makes this blueberry yogurt popsicle recipe a fun and easy one for the kids to help with.
Prep Time: 5 hours, 10 minutes
Total Time: 5 hours, 10 minutes
- 1 pint fresh blueberries, washed and picked over
- 1 cup nonfat milk
- 1/3 cup sugar
- 1 cup low-fat vanilla yogurt
Place blueberries, milk and sugar in a blender, and blend until smooth. Add yogurt and blend briefly. Pour into eight 5-ounce paper cups. Cover each cup with a piece of foil wrap. Make a small slit in the center of the foil top and insert a wooden craft stick. Stand cups on a tray or in a baking dish. Freeze for 5-6 hours. Remove paper cups either by tearing them off or briefly immersing each cup in warm water then easing them off the popsicle.
