Prep time: about 1 to 2 hours

Ingredients:

  2. Stretch a small piece of plastic wrap across the top of each cup.
  3. Using a popsicle stick, poke a hole in the plastic wrap. Stand the stick straight up in the center of the cup.
  4. Put the cups in the freezer until the yogurt is frozen solid.

Suggestions:

If you like, you can make this recipe using plastic ice-pop molds instead of the paper cups and popsicle sticks.

For a cool-looking snack, fill your cups only halfway with one flavor of yogurt in Step 1. Follow Steps 2, 3, and 4. Remove your pops from the freezer, take off the plastic wrap, and spoon in another flavor of yogurt that's a different color. Put the plastic wrap back on and freeze once more. When your pops are frozen, you'll have two-colored treats!
