Turn a fruity yogurt granola parfait into a special frozen treat that's delicious for breakfast or a snack anytime of the day.
This month the #Foodiemamas are taking on the task of creating frozen treats and novelties. I know my kids and I will be going through all these delicious treats throughout the summer. Be sure to scroll down for all the sweet desserts.
This is a simple recipe that the kids can even help make. You can count on each individual popsicle mold to hold about half a cup of low-fat yogurt. Toss in a few fresh raspberries and blueberries and a sprinkle of granola and you have a healthy frozen treat.
I like to use traditional yogurt because it's not as thick as Greek yogurt. But if you prefer Greek, simply mix in a little milk for a thinner consistency. It makes getting the yogurt into the popsicle mold easier.
We always have homemade maple almond granola in the pantry but store-bought works just as well. And any fresh fruit would be delicious.
I like to create a colorful swirl in my popsicles and I do this simply by mashing some of the fruit into the yogurt before spooning into each individual mold.
These Raspberry & Blueberry Yogurt Granola Popsicles would be perfect on a hot summer day but we've been known to eat them in the middle of winter. After all I don't know any kid that would say no to a popsicle!
Raspberry & Blueberry Yogurt Granola Popsicles
Makes 8–10 popsicles. Total time: 4 hours. Printable recipe
- 32 ounces vanilla yogurt
- 1 cup granola
- 1/2 pint raspberries
- 1/2 pint blueberries
Mix together in a bowl 1 cup of the vanilla yogurt with half the raspberries and blueberries. Use an immersion blender or a muddler to incorporate the fruit and yogurt.
Layer the ingredients in a popsicle mold starting with a spoonful or two of vanilla yogurt, followed by granola, a few fresh berries and a layer of the mixed yogurt. Sprinkle a final layer of granola before inserting the popsicle sticks. Freeze for at least four hours.
To remove the popsicles from the mold run them under hot water for a few seconds until they slide easily out of the mold.
