Who doesn’t love a creamy popcicle? Is that what these are? Maybe a creamcicle? Anyhoo….they make for a delicious and healthy treat! Simple ingredients (heck there are only 3!), cheap to make and perfect for a sweet something when you’re having a craving but offers something that you can feel good about.
2 cups fruit (we used strawberries and bananas)
2 cups Greek yogurt (we used vanilla)
2 tbsp honey
Blend fruit & honey in a food processor or blender. We left ours slightly chunky, but you can blend yours more to make it more smooth if desired.
Gently stir in Greek yogurt. Pour or spoon mixture into popcicle molds and freeze about 6 hours. They come out of the molds easier if they are frozen solid (I tried at around 4 hours and that did not work out so well).
**we got a cheap set of popcicle molds at TJ Maxx**
Run the mold under warm water in order to loosen the frozen pop from mold and get your treat outa there and into your mouth!
Next we will try layering the fruit and yogurt rather than mixing and see how that turns out!
I’m all about healthy, bite sized, craving crushing, energy giving snacks! I love making stuff like this and putting them in the fridge or freezer and just grabbing them for on-the-go “treats” to help keep blood sugar levels stable and hunger at bay between meals. This is adapted from a beachbody recipe for carrot cake energy balls. I swapped out several ingredients, using chocolate rather than vanilla Shakeology was just one altered ingredient and I love it!!
1.5 scoops chocolate Shakeology
1/2 cup old fashioned oats
1/3 cup peanut butter
1/4 cup chopped almonds
3/4 cup shredded carrots
1/2 tsp ground cinnamon
1/8 tsp ground cloves
1/8 tsp ground ginger
Combine all ingredients in food processor and pulse until “dough” is mixed evenly.
Roll into 15 balls (I use a small cookie dough scoop)
