By now most of us have seen these incredible yogurt covered strawberries on Pinterest. If you’ve made these delicious treats at home you know they taste as good as they look. But they’re a mess to eat and when you add a tw0-and-a-half-year old wrecking ball named Lincoln (my son) you’re really in for it. So I thought of a fix and an easy way for the kids to enjoy Frozen Yogurt Covered Strawberry Pops without breaking out the stain remover. And just in time because this week in our farmers market basket we got fresh strawberries so check out my less messy version after the jump …
The Set-Up 1 of 4Washed and dried strawberries, vanilla greek yogurt, crushed animal crackers, cutest kid in his Thomas PJ's looking for a fun time with mom.
Strawberry Dip 2 of 4The stick kept coming out without the strawberry so we brought in the spoon as back-up.
Sprinkling with Animal Cracker Dust 3 of 4No that is not dirt on my kids fingers, it's impossible to remove green paint.
Taste Test 4 of 4Kid approved. Nearly mess free, mom approved!
Frozen Yogurt Covered Strawberry Pops Recipe (adapted from six in the suburbs)
1 Pint fresh strawberries, washed, dried and stems removed
1 16 oz container vanilla flavored greek yogurt
10 crushed animal crackers (find some with no hydrogenated oils)
about 10 lollipop sticks
Place a lollipop into a strawberry (it might be loose and slide around, but once frozen it will stick), dunk into the yogurt. Use a spoon to remove it from the yogurt if the stick comes out. Sprinkle with crushed animal crackers and place on cookie sheet lined with wax paper. Repeat with all the strawberries and place the filled sheet into the freezer for at least two hours. Once frozen they can be stored in an airtight container.
