Yogurt is a staple in our house. We literally eat a TON of the stuff, I’m talking daily, and Jake is probably the biggest yogurt eater of the bunch. Some nights he even asks for yogurt with “crunchies,” aka granola, instead of a real dinner. So, since my family is so yogurt obsessed, I’ve been looking for more ways I can incorporate it into our meals and snacks. For instance, I knew you could freeze yogurt into pops and after reading a few recipe variations, I came up with a fun take on banana yogurt pops using ingredients I already had on hand. I love shopping my pantry to see what new “recipes” I can come up with. It’s the best way to not waste food!
Now, these banana yogurt pops can easily serve double duty, meaning they can be given to your loved ones as more than a treat. The ingredients are actually all healthy breakfast staples, so why not surprise the family with frozen banana yogurt pops for an original take on breakfast? The taste those is rich and sweet, so they also work for dessert or a mid-afternoon snack on a nice warm day. And those nice warm days are coming my friends! Spring and summer weather beg for a refreshing ice pop, don’t you think? And these banana yogurt ice pops are the bee’s knees if I don’t say so myself. Haha!
Read below for more on how to make these tasty banana yogurt pops!

6 oz Greek banana yogurt (3 yogurt tubes)
1/2 Banana sliced thin.
1/3 Cup granola

Add a few banana slices and a layer of granola. Place the sticks in and finish pouring the yogurt mixture to the top of mold. Freeze for several hours. Remove from freezer about 15 minutes before eating or run under warm water to release from mold. Enjoy!
