With summer almost here, I found some really good but healthy refrigerator pops for the kids. It took a while to dig them out but I did and thought I would share them with you! I hope your kids enjoy them. In fact, they really are good for adults as we have to watch those calories that are not there one day but somehow those shorts you just wore refuse to fit.
So here goes, they are considered to be healthy snacking which is hard in the summer to find with all the wonderful looking desserts and fancy ice cream cones. It is hard to find good snacks but here are some. Good Luck and enjoy!
In your blender or food processor bowl with metal blade, combine yogurt, strawberries, banana and honey; blend till smooth. Fill each cup with about 1/3 cup yogurt mixture. Place cups in freezer until partially frozen, (about 1 hour). Insert sticks, freeze until firm (about 2 hours). Remove drink cups and serve.
MMMM, now I want one! I am not trying to be funny but I am thinking summer and having one of these!
In blender or food processor in bowl with metal blade, combine yogurt, pineapple and pineapple-orange juice concentrate, blend until smooth. Fill each cup with about 1/3 cup pineapple mixture. Place cups in freezer until partially frozen, (about 1 hr). Insert sticks then freeze till firm, about 2 hours. Remove cups and serve.
Cut watermelon into slices about 1 1/4 inches thick. Cut each slice into pie shaped wedges of desired size. Using a sharp knife, pierce rind, insert wooden stick. Place on waxed paper lined pan or tray, freeze till firm. Wrap individually in foil or plastic wrap. Store in freezer.
Hope these help, they really are good and a lot better for the kids. Good luck and enjoy!

This is a good and simple treat that only takes whipped cream and cocoa powder. All you need is a ice cube container and spoon. Next just put it in the freezer for about 2 hours.
