There are mornings that I just cannot get my little love bug to eat breakfast...
so I came up with an idea that made her giddy with excitement...
especially because she got to help make them.
Bring on the YO YO POPS!
Mash up 1 ripe banana.
Banana mash awaiting Greek yogurt.
Measure out 1 cup of Greek yogurt
(or if you have a 6 oz. single serve sitting around,
that works great...as this finished product yielded
a bit more than the 4-popper tray could support,
but see below...we made it work)
We worked together to cut up 4 large strawberries
1 mashed banana, 1 cup Greek yogurt, 4 chopped strawberries
Add 1/2 cup frozen blueberries, and 1/4 tsp vanilla paste.
It needed a touch more sweet, so we added 1 tablespoon
of strawberry preserves.
Like I said, this yielded a bit more than our
4-popper could support...
but, we made it work...we spooned the remainder
in a plastic cup, popped a stick in the middle
and covered with aluminum foil.
This turned out to be the favorite
yo yo pop of the batch!
Pop them in the freezer, and plan on enjoying them starting
the next day. I run the tray under hot water, to pop them out.
I always have these on hand, in the freezer, because they are
a great filler if you can't get your kids excited about a bowl of oatmeal!
THE BEST PART, FOR MOM, IS THAT THEY ARE THICK AND
WILL NOT MELT ALL OVER THE PLACE, LIKE A REGULAR
