Popsicle Recipe

These popsicles are not only great for cooling you down on a hot day, but are a simple and healthy snack solution for any time of day (and any age group). Use a popsicle mold or the paper cup method (described below) and stay cool this summer!

What You’ll Need

  • 2 cups your choice of fresh fruit
    (ex: strawberries, banana, blueberries, mango, kiwi)
  • 2 cups vanilla yogurt
  • 1/4 cup granulated sugar (omit for less sweet pops)

Directions

  1. Place all ingredients into a blender. Blend until slightly chunky or smooth.
  2. Fill popsicle mold per its instructions. If using Dixie paper cups, fill about 3/4 of the way with the fruit and yogurt mixture. Place a piece of tinfoil over the top and poke a popsicle stick through.
  3. Place in the freezer for at least 5 hours before serving. Enjoy for up to 4 days.

Five Easy Camping Recipes

Tuesday, June 6th, 2017

Cooking over a campfire is one of the greatest perks of summertime camping. But before you dig into those s’mores, check out these five simple recipes that don’t require a pan, Dutch oven or stovetop for your next camping trip.

Hearty Breakfast

Prep these breakfast burritos before you leave for your trip, and enjoy with coffee in your campsite every morning.

Foil Packs

Foil packs make for the best camping meals, since you can throw it on the grate over a fire and let it cook. This barbecue chicken recipe is savory and will keep your family and friends well-fed, and goes great with campfire potatoes.

Snacks and Sides

Ember-roasted corn is a must for any camper, but we also like these grilled Brussels sprouts for a substitute or an afternoon snack.
