Yogurt Pear Pops
Relax and chill out with an icy yogurt pop.
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)
- Put five 5-ounce paper cups in an 8x8x2-inch baking pan; set aside.
- 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.
- 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.
- 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.
- Put the pan in the freezer. Freeze for at least 4 hours or until the pops are firm.
- To serve, remove the foil and tear the paper cups off the pops.
Makes 5 yogurt ice pops.
