The Best Treat on the Street

Tricks, treats, costumes, and homemade popsicles! Our Toasted Coconut Yogurt Pops are the perfect Halloween treat to serve the neighborhood kids! They are a healthy, fun alternative to handing out candy, and they are low in sugar and high in protein!

Toasted Coconut Yogurt Pops:
Serves about 5 depending on size of mold

  • 6oz of plain or vanilla yogurt
  • 1 Tbl soy milk (or regular milk)
  • 2 Tbl toasted coconut + extra to sprinkle on frozen pops
  • 1/2 tsp agave syrup or honey
  • 5-8 mini Dixie cups
  • wooden popsicle sticks*

In a bowl mix together all of the ingredients. Pour the mixture into the mini Dixie cups and place into the freezer. (Feel free to use other types of molds to hold the yogurt mixture, for example: small glass shot glasses or an ice cube tray)

Set a timer for 40 minutes. When the timer goes off, the mixture will be hard enough to push a popsicle stick into place. Continue to freeze for 8 hours. When ready to serve, let the Pops sit at room temperature for about 3 minutes, at which point they can be easily removed from the mold. Sprinkle with extra coconut and serve.

This recipe can easily be doubled if you are feeding more kids!

*You can use many items as a popsicle stick. For example: cut chopsticks in half, use toothpicks, plastic spoons (cut the top off). Just be sure there are no sharp edges!
