100 Days of Science #71-- Making Homemade Yogurt Pops

With both my husband and myself on Weight Watchers we've cut out so many snacks but found some really delicious yogurt bars that we're all loving... but at 4 pops for just over $4 a box I thought it might be fun to try making our own.  I just knew this would be a perfect lesson to add to our 100 days of science challenge!




We bought a popsicle mold last year and we had mixed results with making a few different kinds.  I thought making some homemade yogurt pops would be a great, yummy, science experiment.  

First we diced up some strawberries making sure we had about a cup of them.


Then put them through our blender with 1/2 cup non-fat plain Greek yogurt, a 1/2 cup of almond milk, 2 ounces of light cream cheese, a splash of vanilla, and just 2 tablespoons of granulated sugar.


We poured the mixture into our molds; getting 7 1/2 pops.  We let them freeze for an hour while we went hiking and then pulled them out of the freezer just long enough to put the sticks inside.  Then we froze them overnight.



The next day we ran our molds under warm water until the pops released and we are just loving our strawberry cheesecake yogurt pops.



They are delicious and we have plans to try a few other flavors... like pineapple!
