Yogurt Popsicles

When my sisters and I were kids, we would peel the lids off of single-serve snack size yogurts (the kind that came in a 6-pack), stick a spoon in each, and freeze them overnight to make “popsicles.” They were so good that I wondered if I could do the same with greek yogurt (since it has even more protein than regular yogurt).

The first thing I realized when trying this is that single serve greek yogurts like Chobani aren’t filled all the way to the top and are wider than the 6-pack yogurts, so the spoon falls over when you stick it in the yogurt. I transferred the yogurt to a plastic snack container and covered the top with tin foil to help the spoon stand up:

Once it has frozen, let it thaw slightly, then cut around the perimeter with a sharp knife before pulling the popsicle out. If using the single serve 6-pack kind of yogurt cup, let it thaw slightly, then cut the container off with scissors. If it’s too frozen, running it under hot water for a bit can help loosen it.

I got impatient and was hungry, so I took it out of the freezer after a few hours to see if it was frozen and ended up eating the whole thing. I used peach greek yogurt; it had an ice cream like consistency and was quite tasty!
