What You'll Need

  • 1 6-ounce container yogurt (99% fat-free vanilla)
  • 1 cup strawberries (sliced)
  • 1 6-ounce container yogurt (99% fat-free Key Lime Pie or vanilla)
  • 1 cup fresh spinach leaves (packed)
  • 1/4 cup apple juice

How to Make It

In blender, place Key lime pie yogurt, spinach and apple juice. Cover and blend until smooth.

Spoon 2 tablespoons mixture into each of 5 (5-oz) paper cups. Cover cups with foil; insert craft stick into center of each pop. (Or fill ice pop molds according to manufacturer’s directions.) Put remaining mixture in bowl; cover and refrigerate. Freeze pops about 2 hours or until frozen.

When first layer is frozen, remove foil from pops.

Pour about 1 1/2 tablespoons spinach mixture in each cup over frozen layer. Put remaining mixture in bowl; cover and refrigerate.

Return foil to pops to support sticks. Freeze about 2 hours or until frozen.

Repeat with remaining strawberry and spinach layers, freezing at least 2 hours between layers.
