Gabby has been very into bananas lately, hence a huge container of banana vanilla yogurt from Trader Joes that we just happened to have in the fridge.
She wanted to use that as the base for a new recipe. We simply added fresh banana slices to make a very simple yogurt pop with BIG banana flavor. The result turned out great and because the ingredients are only yogurt and fruit they are pretty much guilt free. In fact, we wouldn’t even judge if decided to grab one or two for breakfast on a warmer morning…..we may just try that ourselves!
2 cups of banana or vanilla low fat yogurt (we used and highly recommend Trader Joes organic brand)
1 large banana cut into small chunks
six 3 ounce Dixie cups and popsicle sticks
Combine all of the ingredients in medium size bowl. Spoon the mixture into six Dixie cups. Carefully place the filled cups in a container (a mini muffin tin works well) cover with plastic wrap, poke holes in it and add popsicle sticks in the center of each cup. Freeze for 4-6 hours until solid and enjoy!
Note: You can also freeze without the sticks, remove from the Dixie cups let soften a bit and eat in a bowl ice cream style which is delicious too!
