Summer is a time when all you want to do is grab a frozen dessert. Looking for a healthier alternative? Make Yogurt-Granola Pops to stay cool all season. If you go berry picking, add some fresh ones, such as blueberries or strawberries, to the pops for an added burst of color.
These pops are easy to prepare. Clare used vanilla yogurt in her version.”Some had granola throughout the whole thing and some just had granola added on the bottom,” Clare explains.
-1 cup of your favorite yogurt
-1 cup of mixed berries (strawberries and blueberries work well)
-3 tablespoons honey, maple syrup or other sweetener
-Plenty of True North Granola for dipping
1. Stir together the yogurt, berries and sweetener.
2. Pour the mixture into ice pop molds. Freeze them for at least 8 hours.
3. When you are ready to eat one, take the pop out of the mold, dip one end in sweetener, and then roll it in the granola.
