Hi everyone! It’s Amy from Little Dairy on the Prairie and I have a simple and yummy summer treat I can’t wait to share with you today!
Not only are Chocolate Peanut Butter Greek Yogurt Popsicle’s absolutely creamy and delicious, they are packed with healthy goodness too! That makes them twice as fun!
I’m beyond excited that my kids are on summer break from school! Since my family lives on a farm, my kids go to work every day during the summer and I LOVE that! Some days they are so busy that I hardly get a chance to see them. I do have my tricks for getting them to come home for a few minutes during the day. I know if I tempt them with these Chocolate Peanut Butter Greek Yogurt Popsicle’s they will be home in a jiffy!
Popsicles are quick to make and require only a few ingredients. All you need is Greek yogurt, chocolate chips, and peanut butter chips. Can I just say how much I love Greek yogurt? It’s so creamy and yummy the kids don’t even realize it’s healthy!
These are little popsicle’s and I was having a hard time spooning my Greek yogurt mixture into the container without making a mess. It was much easier after I added the mixture to a Ziploc bag, snipped the corner off and piped it into the container. Once the popsicle’s are filled, tap them on the counter top a few times to make sure there isn’t any air bubbles.
Waiting for the popsicles to freeze is the hardest part of this recipe! In fact, if you are patient enough to have the kids help you in the kitchen they will love making these popsicle’s.
My littlest boy had been making a “concrete” sidewalk when I tempted him to come have a treat with me! Dirty boy’s and summer time go hand in hand! Enjoy the time you get to spend sitting on the front porch with your kids this summer! Even if you have to lure them with a popsicle!
Chocolate Greek & Peanut Butter Greek Yogurt Popsicle’s
1 c. Greek Yogurt
¼ c. chocolate chips (semi sweet or milk chocolate)
¼ c. peanut butter chips
¼ c. sugar (optional, I skip it)
Place chocolate chips in 1 cup microwave safe bowl. Melt chips in the microwave at half power for 2 minutes, or until melted, stirring after each 30 seconds. Add ½ c. Greek yogurt to melted chocolate chips. Add 1/8 c. sugar if desired. Place mixture in a Ziploc bag and snip about ½ inch of the corner off.
Repeat the same process with the peanut butter chips.
Pipe alternating layers of chocolate Greek yogurt mixture and peanut butter Greek yogurt mixture in the Popsicle molds. Tap on the counter top a few times to help get the air bubbles out of the popsicles.
Cover popsicles with lids and freeze for 4-6 hours or until firm.
