GREEK YOGURT POPSICLES RECIPE
FOOD AS MEDICINE:
These Greek Yogurt popsicles satisfy a sweet tooth with very little added sugar and provide beneficial probiotics and protein to boot. Over 80% of our immune system is regulated by the gut, so incorporating probiotic food sources into your daily plan is a great way to ensure the bacteria in your body is working to protect and regulate vs. wreak havok. Studies have shown eating foods rich in probiotics can lead to an improved immune response by increasing the body’s white blood cell count. Greek Yogurt is also a protein powerhouse, with at least 15g in a 6oz serving! These popsicles are a great sweet treat, but can also be considered a breakfast on the go alongside a hard-boiled egg! And who doesn’t like ice cream for breakfast?!
Makes 6 6-oz popsicles
2 cups full-fat organic Greek Yogurt (We like Wallaby Brand)
½ cup 2% milk (We like Mill-King in Houston, which is low-heat pasteurized), or coconut milk
1 tsp vanilla extract
1 Tbsp honey
1 pint fresh raspberries
1 cup frozen peach slices
Place the Greek yogurt, milk and vanilla extract in a medium bowl and whisk until combined.
Combine the raspberries with the honey in a small saucepan and cook down until reduced and thickened, about 5-7 minutes. Allow to cool completely. Layer the peaches, raspberries and yogurt mixture into popsicle molds or small cups with popsicle sticks. Freeze overnight. Enjoy!
