Frozen Chocolate Peanut Butter Yogurt Pops
I was wanting to come up with a way to make a frozen yogurt treat. I tried a couple different recipes before we settled on this one.
The recipe is pretty simple. It has 4 ingredients for the frozen yogurt itself. We also added in chocolate chips and used a short pretzel rod as the stick.
If you used Vanilla yogurt instead of plain yogurt, you could probably cut down the frozen yogurt part to only 2 ingredients.
1 cup plain yogurt (mine was fat-free)
1/4 cup chocolate flavored peanut butter
1/4 cup powdered sugar
1 tsp. vanilla extract
Place yogurt, chocolate peanut butter, powdered sugar and vanilla extract in a bowl.
Mix with a handmixer on low for 1 minute.
Spoon yogurt into 4 small cups. Tap cups on counter a couple times to eliminate bubbles and make top even. Stick pretzel in. Freeze in freezer for at least 3 hours.
If you like chocolate chips, you can add a few to the bottom of the cup before you add the yogurt.
It will take a couple minutes of thaw time before you'll be able to get your pops out of the cup.
The peanut butter I made mine with only has 7 grams of sugar per serving and we used 2 servings to make this recipe for 4 pops. With the specific ingredients that I used, the nutritional breakdown for each pop looks like this:
14.25 grams of sugar
6 1/2 grams of total fat
1 1/2 grams of saturated fat
1 gram of fiber
5 grams of protein
14.25 grams of sugar
Plus it has:
15% DV Calcium
10% DV Vitamin D
3% DV Iron
That does not include whatever calories, etc. will be added if you use a pretzel rod as your stick.
