Make Your Own Frozen Novelty Treats
Kids (and many adults) love ice cream novelty treats, but they tend to be full of processed, artificial ingredients and an over abundance of sugar. Many kids also love to help out in the kitchen and are more likely to try something when they’ve had a hand in creating it. So, for a fun and healthy treat, try making your own frozen novelties at home!
1/2 cup frozen (can also use fresh) strawberries
1/2 cup frozen (can also use fresh) blueberries
1 over ripe banana
1 ½ cups plain low fat yogurt
1 Tbsp honey
Blend all of the above ingredients in a blender or food processor until very smooth. Poor into paper cups about ¾ full and add popsicle sticks. Place in the freezer over night (or until frozen). Remove from freezer, remove the popsicle from paper cup, and enjoy.
This recipe is great because it can also be made using other kinds of summer fruits, such as peaches, pineapple, and mango. Always include the banana because it helps maintain a creamier consistency.
