Five Ingredients Friday (Fruit Pops)

It's time to exchange recipes for Five Ingredients Friday! Back to posting recipes of 5 ingredients or less.

It's hot here and I'm always looking for cool treats for Snuggle Bug.

This recipe is something that I concocted at home.

I've been a bit leery of giving Snuggle Bug popsicles from the grocery store because I don't think they're exactly healthy. So, when I found a freezer pop mold, I bought it and decided to try to make my own healthier popsicles.

The first batch I made turned out really yummy and Snuggle Bug devoured his popsicle in no time flat!

Fruit Pops
1 banana
1 peach
1 container of vanilla yogurt
splash of oj

Peel the banana and the peach (or whatever fruit combo you'd like to try). Throw fruit & yogurt into a blender and blend on pulse.

Add a splash of oj to create a smooth consistency.

Pour mixture into popsicle molds.

Put in freezer and let them freeze overnight before serving.

As you can see, Snuggle Bug liked them and I think you will too!

I look forward to seeing your Five Ingredients Friday recipe!

He is sooooo cute!

That sounds really yummy and refreshing.

Ohhh, sounds yummy. Here is a healthy low fat treat for you. In your blender add 1 cup 8oz vanilla yogurt, a half cup of low sugar orange juice, few cubes of ice, fresh strawberries, one banana a splash of low fat milk. 1 tsp of Splenda. Blend and enjoy. It’s healthy and the kids love it too!

Sounds good. I don't have any freezer pop molds, Me and Shaylee are going shopping today so maybe i can find some.

What a great idea! And it looks like by doing that, you have a little "built-in" melted icepop guard. =)

Oh, you're creative! I just fill the molds with a watered-down juice (too much sugar makes the Princess, not so Princess), or straight soy yogurt. I totally commend you for not doing the store SugarPops, as we call 'em. Right on, healthy mama!! But when we're in a pinch & she's sick, we'll give her the Pedialyte frozen pops for the electrolytes. Once in a blue moon...
I LOVE these pics!!

I'm loving the idea of recipes with five ingredients. Is there any way you can make sure they are five ingredients I actually have in my house? :-D

So I made them. I was all excited we had peaches, bananas, yogurt and OJ. I was feeling so fortunate. I peeled the peach, my hubby showed me a trick, made it very easy. Then went to make them, the blender had been violated. Used and not rinsed. So I decided to freeze the peach. Today we made them. DD had 3 bananas peeled before I could check the recipe. So 3 it was. The OJ was all gone so I used a splash of lemon. I used a 32oz vanilla yogurt. And BRZZZSHVRMM Mixed it up. I happened to still have my popsicle molds. We still had half a blender full so we had smooties. Delicious!!! Thanks for sharing!

I love the name Snuggle Bug!

I used to make pops for my little ones.

When we used all the homemade jam, and it was just a coating in the jar, I would pour in milk, shake it up and make that into pops!

The kids loved them and I didn't waste the little bit of jam leftover.

I thought it was certainly healthier than koolaid.
