Frozen Peanut Butter Berry Pops Recipe

While I was pregnant with my daughter, I actually took time to sit and read “fun” things that were not school and research related.  One of my favorites was Parents magazine and I found a lot of great meal and snack ideas there.  One particular recipe I had kept was for frozen peanut butter berry pops.

The day before our afternoon treat was to be enjoyed, I asked for my children’s assistance in washing some of their play cups. Naturally an odd look overcame both of them.  My son says, “The ones we play with?” I simply replied, “yup!” So they grabbed a few and washed them well.    We also got our ice cube tray for mini treats!

Make it Fun!

Why am I using such tiny molds and my children’s toys, none-the-less? Why not! I thought it would be super cute and just something that is fun and inexpensive.  In addition to the kids cups, I used another mold that I found last summer in the grocery store for which I believe was only three to four dollars.  For another idea, I have been seeing a lot of bloggers using the containers that yogurt is packaged in as their mold as well.  As far as sticks are concerned you can use wooden popsicle sticks, straws or spoons.  Ask your children to help out with ideas because I am sure they will have some great ones.   You can make popsicles in any container! You can even use Zipzicle Ice Pop Molds to make this treat.

Sshh…and guess what? I actually let them have one after breakfast since that’s when I was snapping the pics.  A little extra calcium and antioxidants won’t hurt, right?

What is the middle layer in the pictures, between the peanut butter and the berries?

Ginny says:

I have a grand daughter that is dairy free. What could I use in place of the yogurt? This is Awesome! Thanks for sharing.

Jackie says:

Hi Ginny! You should be able to find dairy-free yogurts such as coconut and soy, in the dairy section of your local grocers. I know my Whole Foods has wide array of dairy-free yogurts. –I will bet coconut would taste really good!
