Frozen Fruit & Yogurt Pretzel Pops: A Yummy and Affordable Summer Treat

We eat a lot of ice cream in the summer. Who doesn't? It has become an after-dinner habit for my family. We like to go to ice cream shops for the treat, but that can break the budget. So we go to the ice cream shops on special occasions and get our ice cream fix by eating at home.

We wanted to make the treat a little healthier, so I made some frozen yogurt pops. The Popsicle molds have been in my kitchen cupboards for years. I almost sold them at our recent yard sale because I have never used them. Thank goodness I didn't, because these were fun to make and my kids loved them.

We simply took our favorite vanilla yogurt and mixed blueberries in one batch and strawberry puree in the second batch. Instead of using the sticks that come with the molds, I stuck pretzel rods into the yogurt and then placed the molds in the freezer.

Voila...frozen yogurt pops.

The possibilities are endless. Enjoy!
