Prep 10 min / Freeze 8 hrs

My kids love these freezer pops after school or after dinner. Greek yogurt punches up the protein power, while the fruit adds a touch of sweetness and a ton of flavour.

  • 1 tub (500 g) 0% plain Greek yogurt
  • 1 ripe banana, cut in chunks
  • 125 mL (1/2 cup) frozen blueberries or strawberries
  • 25 mL (2 tbsp) ground flax seed
  • 175 mL (3/4 cup) orange juice
  • 15 mL (1 tbsp) maple syrup or liquid honey (optional)
  • 5 mL (1 tsp) vanilla
  1. In blender, combine yogurt, banana, blueberries and flax seed. Pulse to mix together. Add orange juice, maple syrup, if using and vanilla; puree until smooth.
  2. Pour mixture among eight small (5 oz) disposable cups and cover with plastic wrap. Push craft stick in centre and place in freezer for at least overnight or up to 3 weeks.
  3. Tropical variation: Substitute frozen mango and pineapple chunks for the banana and blueberries. You will need about 375 mL (1 1/2 cups) fruit in total.
