On this website you can enter in what ingredients you have and it will give you a recipe. How cool!! You can even tell it to exclude recipes with nuts, meat, fish and a whole heap of other items.

Solution solved on what’s for dinner.

Yoghurt Pops

Ingredients:

  • 1 8-oz. container of your favorite flavor of yogurt

Utensils:

  • small paper cups
  • wooden popsicle sticks (available in craft stores)
  • plastic wrap

Directions:

  1. Pour yogurt into paper cups. Fill them almost to the top.
  2. Stretch a small piece of plastic wrap across the top of each cup.
  3. Using the popsicle stick, poke a hole in the plastic wrap. Stand the stick straight up in the center of the cup.
  4. Put the cups in the freezer until the yogurt is frozen solid.
  5. Remove the plastic wrap, peel away the paper cup, and eat your pop!

Variations and suggestions:

If you like, you can make this recipe using plastic ice-pop molds instead of the paper cups and popsicle sticks.

For a cool-looking snack, fill your cups only halfway with one flavor of yogurt in Step 1. Follow Steps 2, 3, and 4. Remove your pops from the freezer, take off the plastic wrap, and spoon in another flavor of yogurt that's a different color. Put the plastic wrap back on and freeze once more. When your pops are frozen, you'll have two-colored treats!
