Summer is coming, and we go through a lot of frozen treats when the weather gets warmer. I make my kids pops so we can avoid extra sugar, dyes, and high fructose corn syrup. One of my sons can't have dyes or HFCS, so we can't have most pops. I usually make our summer treats from juice or dye-free drink mixes, or yogurt. I love this recipe because it's a little more filling for a mid-day snack, and it's fairly healthy with yogurt, berries, and granola. It does have some sugar in it, but you might find that you can use less after you make it and adjust to your taste.
Mixed Berry, Yogurt, and Granola Pops

- 1 bag of frozen (or fresh) mixed berries
- 1 cup of yogurt (we used Vanilla)
- 2/3 cups sugar
- ¼ cup honey
- ½ cup granola
- 8 small Dixie Cups
- 8 small wooden popsicles
- 8 pieces of foil, cut to be slightly larger than the opening of the cup
1. Blend berries in your food processor.
2. Add your yogurt, sugar and honey. Blend well.
3. Add the granola and mix well again.
4. Fill paper cups about 2/3 full with the berry mixture.
5. Cover each cup with foil and fold it over the cup. Insert a wooden stick about 3/4 down the cup. Freeze for 2 hours until ready to eat.
My kids would eat all of these in one day if I'd let them! We have to ration them here. We've used strawberries, raspberries, and whatever berries were growing on the farm. They do taste better with fresh berries, but we've also used frozen with good results.
