Peanut butter and jelly pops (*gluten free)

You’ll Need

  • 1 cup favorite peanut butter
  • 2 cups greek honey yogurt (our fave brand is zoi)
  • favorite fruit preserves
  • dixie cups + popsicle sticks, or push-pop molds
  • food processor or blender

Here’s How

  1. In a food processor, mix peanut butter and Greek yogurt together. Spray dixie cups or push-pops lightly with cooking spray, fill the first third with yogurt mixture, add a small layer of preserves of choice and another small layer of yogurt mix, repeat until cups are filled. Put in the freezer.
  2. If using dixie cups – When mixture is starting to freeze or become hard (after 30 minutes or so) insert popsicle sticks.
  3. After a couple of hours, these pops should be ready to eat.

three cheers for warmer weather!
