3-Ingredient Froyo Pop Recipe Is A Summer Treat Your Salem Dentist Approves Of! - Sunrise Emergency

Updated: Oct 7, 2019



It can be tough finding healthy treats that your dentist would actually approve of, especially in the summer! Treats like ice cream, popsicles, lemonades, and cold sodas are great for cooling off, but they are absolutely loaded with sugar, which we all know can wreak havoc on our teeth.


In fact, added sugar makes many so-called “healthy” treats remarkably unhealthy. A prime example is the ever popular frozen yogurt: froyo sellers like to claim their product is very healthy, but the flavored ones typically have at least as much sugar as ice cream! Try out this simple, delicious, no-sugar-added, tooth healthy recipe for Homemade Froyo Smoothie Pops - just 3 ingredients!


You Will Need:

Blender or food processor

Popsicle molds


Ingredients:

12 ounces plain yogurt (you can use Greek or regular: Greek yogurt has less sugar and more protein than regular, but regular yogurt has twice as much teeth-strengthening calcium as Greek yogurt!)

1 banana

1 cup fresh fruit of choice - strawberries, blueberries, blackberries, mango, etc. Chop the fruit to about 1-inch pieces if necessary!



Instructions:

-Mix all ingredients in your blender or food processor until smooth.

-Pour into pop molds.

-Freeze for at least 4 hours or overnight.

-Enjoy!!



Optional Variations and Mix-Ins:

-If you don’t want to wait for your Froyo Pops to freeze, you can absolutely skip that part and enjoy as a smoothie! Feel free to toss in some fresh leafy greens like kale or spinach - about 1 cup. It won’t affect the deliciousness of the smoothie, but will add fiber and other nutrients!

-If you want your froyo pop to be a bit sweeter, add 1-2 tablespoons of honey to the mix. A little bit goes a long way, and fresh fruit already adds plenty of sweetness and flavor.

-Add in chia seeds in the final few seconds of blending for an extra healthy boost!
