Yogurt Pear Pops

Yogurt Pear PopsRelax and chill out with an icy yogurt pop.

Recipe Ingredients:

1 (15.25-ounce) can pear halves or slices
1 (8-ounce) carton plain yogurt
3 tablespoons honey
1/2 teaspoon lemon juice
Few drops green food coloring (optional)
Few drops almond extract (optional)

Cooking Directions:

  1. Put five 5-ounce paper cups in an 8x8x2-inch baking pan; set aside.
  2. Open the can of pears with a can opener. Place a colander in the sink. Empty the pears into the colander and let the liquid drain away.
  3. Put the pears, yogurt, honey, lemon juice, and, if you like, food coloring, and almond extract in a blender container or a food processor bowl. Cover with the lid and blend or process on high speed until smooth. Turn off the blender.
  4. Pour the mixture into the paper cups using a rubber scraper to remove all of the mixture from the blender container or food processor. Cover each cup with a square of foil. Use a table knife to make a small hole in center of each foil square. Slide a wooden craft stick through each hole and into the fruit mixture in the cup.
  5. Put the pan in the freezer. Freeze for at least 4 hours or until the pops are firm.
  6. To serve, remove the foil and tear the paper cups off the pops.

Makes 5 yogurt ice pops.
