Summer time always brings me back to my childhood when I spent the days playing outside, splashing around in the pool and devouring popsicles with my sisters and the neighborhood kids. Now that I have a little family of my own, I try my best to create kid friendly recipes with healthy foods for my son to try. I want him to be a kid and enjoy the little things in life like popsicles so I got to thinking about all of the different kinds that I could make.
Popsicles are the perfect treat to cool off with in this summer heat but I of course like to make them somewhat healthy. I started thinking about kid friendly foods and the first thing that came to mind was one of my childhood favorites, PB & J! So how am I going to transform a sandwich into a delicious popsicle you ask? Actually very easily…like 3 to 4 ingredients easy! And the main star of the recipe is the Wild Friends Classic Creamy Peanut Butter!
If you have a kiddo, be sure to try this easy recipe for the perfect CREAMY, tart and sweet frozen treat!
Prep time: 5 minutes | Freezer time: 1 hour | Servings: 4
3 tbsp Wild Friends Creamy Peanut Butter
2 (5oz) containers Siggis yogurt (vanilla, strawberry, or blueberry all work great)
2 tbsp organic jelly/or jam
2 tbsp unsweetened almond milk (you can sub water or regular milk as well)
(4 popsicle molds are needed)
In a mixing bowl combine the two containers of yogurt and 2 tablespoons of unsweetened almond milk and mix with a spoon until well blended. The almond milk will help to make the mixture less thick and easier to pour into the molds. Next, gently stir in the 3 tablespoons of Wild Friends creamy peanut butter and 2 tablespoons of organic jelly of your choice. Once all ingredients have been mixed together, pour the mixture into the popsicle molds and freeze for 1 hour or until popsicles are firm and can be easily removed from the molds.
If you want to get fancy…before pouring the mixture into the molds, drizzle some extra WF creamy peanut butter on to the sides of the popsicle molds first and then add in the mixture.
Also, to make this recipe even more kid friendly, you could have your little one help you make them! Here's my son Parker enjoying one of the popsicles :-)
