Frozen yogurt, easily made at home in five minutes! All you have to do is whisk your favorite yogurt with a little sweetener, some vanilla and cinnamon, and any add-ins your heart desires. These frozen yogurt popsicles are a great on-the-go breakfast (perhaps mix in some granola and berries), as well as the perfect summer snack or dessert. (Try crushed Oreos for an awesome cookies-and-cream version.)
1½ cups Mehadrin Plain Yogurt of choice (Greek, low-fat, full-fat, etc.)
3-5 tablespoons maple syrup (depending on preference; I like mine with little to no sweetener)
1½ teaspoons vanilla extract
¼ teaspoon cinnamon, optional
Dash of salt
Add-ins of choice: granola, crushed Oreo cookies, chocolate chips, sliced fruit or berries, cereal, nuts, etc.
- In a medium mixing bowl, mix together yogurt, maple syrup, vanilla extract, cinnamon, and salt. Mix in one or a combination of desired add-ins. Alternatively, divide yogurt mixture into a few bowls and stir a different filling into each bowl. You can also position fruits, like strawberry slices, against the sides of the molds instead of mixing them directly into the yogurt.
- Fill ices molds almost to the top and place sticks in. Freeze for a few hours, or until hardened. Popsicles are best if you wait 5 minutes for them to defrost slightly before eating. If necessary, run the popsicles under water to help ease them out of the molds.
Yield: about 6 popsicles
