Lemon Meringue Pie Pops
1 box (4-serving size) lemon instant pudding and pie filling mix
1 1/2 cups half-and-half
1/4 cup fresh lemon juice
1 container (6 oz) Yoplait® Original 99% Fat Free lemon burst yogurt
7 tablespoons coarsely crushed graham crackers
1/2 cup whipping cream
1/4 cup marshmallow creme
In medium bowl, beat pudding mix and half-and-half with whisk 2 minutes. Beat in lemon juice and yogurt. Pour generous 1/3 cup mixture into each of 7 (5-oz) paper cups. Sprinkle each with 1 tablespoon graham cracker crumbs. Cover cups with foil; insert craft stick into center of each pop. (Or fill ice pop molds according to manufacturer’s directions.) Freeze about 4 hours or until frozen.
When ready to serve pops, in small bowl, beat whipping cream and marshmallow creme with electric mixer on high speed until soft peaks form. Remove each pop from cup. Spread top of each with about 2 tablespoons marshmallow mixture, forming meringue peaks.
