Notes
Try various flavor fusion combinations by blending different types of fruit (e.g., peaches, strawberries, raspberries) with different flavors of low-fat or fat-free yogurt.[br]Create fruit and yogurt parfait popsicles by adding low-fat granola. Try blending granola in the mixture or add to the top of the mold before the stick is inserted.[br]Run mold under hot water for a few seconds for easier popsicle removal.[br]Don’t have popsicle molds? Pour mixture into paper or plastic cups. Freeze popsicles for two hours, then add a wooden stick in each cup. Freeze popsicles for an additional 4-6 hours or overnight.
