There may be no better category of summer foods than frozen treats. Often, these are quite junky – but they don’t have to be! These popsicles are protein and fiber rich, silky smooth, and will cool you down without spiking your blood sugar or giving you a neon tongue. They’re a perfect afternoon snack for those hot, sticky, August days!
- 1.5 c plain greek yogurt* (or use vanilla and leave out sugar)
- 1/2 c milk*
- 1 banana
- 1/2 c old fashioned oats
- 1 tsp vanilla
- 1/2 c sugar
- 12 Tbsp peanut butter of choice
- 1/2 c old fashioned oats, toasted
- 1/4 c almond slivers, toasted
In a blender, combine the yogurt, milk, banana, oats, vanilla, and sugar. Freeze into 6 popsicle molds (or use cups and spoons). Spread toasted oats and almonds on a plate. When frozen (3-4 hours, depending on your freezer), remove from molds, and spread 2 Tbsp of peanut butter on each pop. Roll in the nuts and oats, place on plastic wrap on a tray and put back into the freezer for peanut butter to harden…or enjoy right away!
*I like to use whole fat dairy, but you can use low fat if that is your preference!
enjoying on a rooftop with a view doesn’t hurt!
