Jam on It: Fruity Greek Yogurt Pops
Congratulations on making to February!! I know it didn’t help that you had to go to that Super Bowl party that was a vision of temptation with all the cheesy dips, pizza, potato chips, fried buffalo wings, and greasy sandwiches sitting amongst a small veggie tray with wilted vegetables. Trust me, I feel your pain.
I hope this recipe will make it all better. Since I have been only allowing myself cheat moments and not cheat days, I have to get creative when I want something sweet. This one particular day I wanted some ice cream. And no, I didn’t want 2 scoops of ice cream, I wanted the entire half a gallon with a large spoon.
With a refrigerator full of yogurt and my homemade cranberry jam, I whipped up these yummy Greek yogurt popsicles with my favorite popsicle molds by Norpro. These popscicles give me the creamy texture of ice cream pops and are packed with tons of protein from the Greek yogurt.
