Recipe of the Week: Chocolate PB Yogurt Pops

It’s HOT HOT HOT here today! 95 degrees and high humidity makes it a necessity to have cold, frosty treats on hand to help me cool down! With my new eating plan to stay slim this summer, I have come up with a delicious, nutritious way to have an ice-cream like treat without the crazy high calorie count.

These Chocolate PB Yogurt Pops are creamy and delicious! Here’s what you need:

(makes 6-8 pops depending on your container size)

Ingredients:

  • 1, 17.6 oz. container Fage 0% Plain Greek Yogurt (or your favorite non-fat greek yogurt)
  • 1/2 cup creamy natural peanut butter
  • 1/4 cup natural honey
  • 1/4 cup Carnation Instant Breakfast powder, Chocolate flavor

Directions

  1. In a small mixing bowl, combine all ingredients, stirring until combined.
  2. Spoon mixture evenly amongst your small cups/containers (dixie cups work great for the little ones!)
  3. Place a popsicle or lollipop stick into the center of each cup and place in the freezer.
  4. Freeze for 2-4 hours, then remove yogurt pop from container and enjoy!

Note: If you don’t have any popsicle sticks, feel free to put the mix into a small storage container and eat with a spoon after 1 hour in the freezer like I did! YUM!

Variations:

  • Use crunchy peanut butter for a little texture!
  • Keep refrigerated for an unfrozen healthy sweet treat during your day!
  • Sub in mini chocolate chips for the instant breakfast powder to make Cookie Dough pops!
  • Place the mixture into shaped popsicle molds for a little added fun!
