Frozen Yoghurt Pops

These are something that I started making regularly once I started really taking notice of what chemicals, flavours and general nasties go into iceblocks. Over the summer my kids (as do most kids) love eating iceblocks and icecream and I took to making these so we always had a ready supply and didn't cave in to buying the store bought variety (and all the crap that is in them!). I bought 3 containers that each hold 8 'iceblocks' so we rarely ran out. I usually would make them up as a smoothie in the blender first and then pour them into the containers, so really anything goes! The basic components are:
Milk
Yoghurt
Fruit
Honey

My most popular version is banana with either blueberry, strawberry or raspberry. I am still making them with frozen berries, as they make a great stop gap for Carys when she is whinging for dinner and it isn't quite ready!
I also make up iced chocolate or coffee and pop them into the iceblock containers for the adults as something to cool down with. My recipe for that particular concoction is here

They look great! I make ice pops for my children too, I hate the thought of all those e-numbers and additives in the shop bought ice lollies. I love the adult ones too! They look so yummy :)

I can't believe you're making these in the middle of winter lol. Great idea though, they look very pretty!

Oh my! Apple pie! said...

I make something similar for my kids. They are always a treat. I love the pink colour.
