Yogurt Pops

My ten year old daughter has really taken an interest in cooking lately. She has asked several times recently if she could look through my cookbooks just to see what she could find. I think I may just have a fellow foodie in my daughter.

All too often though, I am in a hurry in the kitchen, and don’t take the time to let my kids cook with me as much as I should.

So, one of the things that I have been trying to do is to let them pick things that they want to cook. Instead of helping me cook something that I choose, I let them choose something that we can cook together.

My daughter recently came to me after looking through Paula Deen’s My First Cookbook for kids (which my girls love), and asked if she could make the yogurt pops that were in the book.

I looked at the recipe and knew this would be an easy and fun recipe for us to make. After thinking about it though I decided to let her tackle this one alone. She was thrilled to be able to cook something without me even being near the kitchen and I was thrilled to let her.

These really were easy and she did a great job on them. A child much younger could easily tackle these without much help.

These actually are great for anyone to make.  They are a quick, easy, frugal, and healthy snack for kids.

We did these in small paper cups and used popsicle sticks because my daughter wanted to follow the directions exactly, but if you have popsicle type molds those would also work well.

    Wow they look delicious … tell her she just convinced someone to make this !!!!



  2. I saw these in a magazine the other day and thought they’d looked yummy! My son doesn’t do well with dairy or soy yogurt, so I haven’t taken the plunge yet with this. I probably need to see if I can find a nondairy alternative to yogurt.

  3. These yogurt pops sound great. I also froze your recipe for the orange julius and they were really tasty.

  4. Oh, yum! I wonder if I could try and make this with plain yogurt and blend with some fruit and honey. 😀

    • @Sherry, I think you could easily use this basic recipe and do other things with it. I think it would be good with other fruit juices too. I would just add more honey if I used plain yogurt.

    These look great! I think plain yogurt would taste good. And, you could experiment with different juices!

  6. This sounds really simple and good. I basically make a smoothie ~ throw in some spinach (for some slick veggies) and do the same thing. We add fresh/frozen fruit ~ blueberries are always great to cover the taste of the spinach. This would be really easy though. I bet my very independent 4 year old could do most of this herself. That would absolutely thrill her lol.
