- Yogurt (I used non-fat vanilla)
- Fruit, thin sliced (I used kiwi, strawberries and blueberries)
- Add a little yogurt to mold, slide fruit slices down the sides if you want them to show and look pretty.
- Add more yogurt and them more fruit until mold is full.
Note: You can also chop your fruit small and combine it with the yogurt- then pour into molds and freeze. (Works better with the small, narrow molds.)
*Unmold and serve with granola if desired. Just dip the Popsicle into the granola -kids love this one!
