Yogurt and Popsicles...

The sugar control obsession really got into high gear because of yoplait yogurt. A regular 6oz yoplait has 27 grams of sugar! That's six teaspoons of sugar! SIX!!! How is this even possible?? This has started me reading nutrition labels kind of obsessively.
Now I'm buying plain yogurt and letting them add sugar and fruit to it (they generally put one teaspoon in). We were buying the yoplait yogurt in a tube and freezing it which I assumed was better than popsicles, nope.. So now I'm making my own.

The following recipes make enough to fill 8 4oz popsicle molds.

1 120z bag mixed frozen berries
3/4 cup unfiltered apple juice (filtered apple juice freezes too hard, I think...)
blend in blender, pour in molds, freeze...

1 12oz container strawberries, hulled
1 8oz bottle of strawberry milk

1 cup fresh or frozen peach slices
1/2 cup plain yogurt
2 or 3 tbsp of honey
splash of apple juice (just to get the blender going)

1 cup fresh or frozen mango chunks
1/2 cup plain yogurt
2tbsp of honey
1 tsp cardamom
splash of apple juice (just to get the blender going)

12oz of any single type of berry
1 cup of gingerale
1/4 cup apple juice

The boys also like frozen herbal tea which is refreshing on a hot day, even more so with no sugar added to it.
