The heatwave is upon us down here in grand ole’ Texas and I definitely needed some relief! Yes, it can get hot back in Pennsylvania, but not nearly as warm as it is in Houston. Although I am pretty impressed at how I am starting to get acclimated to these intense temperatures. My method of beating the heat is to simply keep myself distracted with my hobbies such as taking pictures and experimenting with healthy recipes. This is where my fruity yogurt pops come in!
This past Friday I received the summer FabFitFun box in the mail which is where I got my popsicle molds. I must say I absolutely love their full-sized products! (20% Off).
What I Got:
- OSEA Atmosphere Protection Cream – Value $48 (Love this.)
- Trina Turk Tote – Value $55 (The one I got says Vitamin Sea, each box is different.)
- Summer & Rose Yoga Towel – Value $36 (Cute little inspirational message print.)
- Stemulation Daily Micro Derm Scrub – Value $34
- Passport to Beauty Gypset Luminous Lips – Value $18 (This stuff lasts.)
- FabFitFun Every Day Beach Waves Spray – Value $18 (Tip: use a small amount.)
- Betchesicles Ice Pop Molds – Value $19 (Cute & small.)
Now the thing I loved the most about this box was the Betchsicles molds. I love icy treats and have been wanting to try to make more of an effort to eat healthy. I decided to give these a try and made healthy yogurt pops. I’ve never made my own yogurt pops before but these turned out delicious! Even my boyfriend said it was even better than ice-cream.
Healthy-Recipe: Fruity Yogurt Pops
- Popsicle Molds (I used my small Betchsicle set but for larger molds you could double this recipe.)
- Blackberries (1/4 a cup)
- Dannon Toasted Coconut Light & Fit Greek Yogurt (1 Container)
- Frozen Chopped Banana (1/2 cup freeze beforehand)
- Flax Milk (Just for blending purposes 1/4 cup or as needed)
- Place ingredients in your blender and bring to a smoothie consistency. You may need to add more or less milk so it blends and doesn’t jam. Use your best judgement, but I didn’t need very much at all. Make sure its blended well without any chunks (unless you like it that way!)
- Carefully pour the mixture into your molds.
- Place the molds in the freezer and let them freeze for at least an hour.
- Remove the popsicles from the freezer.
- Now for the tricky part! Removing the popsicles from their molds can be a pain. The easiest way for me was to run some warm water over the plastic part of the molds. After about 3 minutes I was able to get them out without any flaws.
- Enjoy your summer treat!
Don’t be afraid to have fun with this recipe and experiment with different fruits!
