Do you get a bit fed up with all the chocolate being pushed every year as Easter gets closer & closer? I love chocolate as much as the next person but as we all know all that sugar is not good for your health and teeth! Do you wish you could feed the kids and yourself some healthier Easter treats? I know my little man eats far too much chocolate over Easter so this year I’m switching it up a little with these homemade yogurt popsicle treats that both my son and myself can make together! Here is how it’s done courtesy of http://www.eatsamazing.co.uk
- 500g Yogurt
- handful granola
- handful blueberries
- handful raspberries
*Try using different flavors of yogurt to give these treats some really pretty colours. For a really healthy treat, natural or greek yogurt is perfect because it doesn’t have any added sugar. Dairy free yogurt alternatives such as soya yogurt should also work for this recipe.
- Egg shaped silicone mould or muffin cups
- lollipop or cake pop sticks
Place a small dollop of yoghurt into each egg in your silicone mould, filling each egg to about a third. Push chunks of granola into the yoghurt, and then add a few raspberries and blueberries to each egg too. Place a lolly stick into each compartment, laying it down as flat as possible. Fill each egg to the top with yoghurt, making sure it covers all of the fruit and the lolly stick.
Place mould in the freezer and freeze for at least 2 hours or overnight, until the eggs are frozen through and solid. Once frozen, pop out of the moulds, leave the popsicles on a plate at room temperature for a couple of minutes to soften a little then serve immediately.
