With the sun shining outside, springtime is the perfect time for frozen treats. You can make all different kinds of frozen goodies using only what you have on hand and what is in season. We also like to buy fruits when they are in season and freeze them to use when they aren't. What better way to enjoy fruit on a warm spring day than by making them into a yummy frozen dessert. These Mango-Berry yogurt cups fit the bill perfectly and they are super fun to make with the little ones. Using empty yogurt cups as the molds, these pops are yummy enough for an after dinner treat and fun enough for a party of family of friends.

– 6 empty yogurt cups
– 6 wooden treat sticks

Step 3: Strain the Syrup

Pour the berry syrup through a strainer to remove all of the seeds. We freeze the seeds to be added to smoothies another time.

Step 4: Prepare the Molds

Then, drizzle the berry syrup mixture all over the inside of each of the yogurt cups. Save a small amount and set it aside.

Step 5: Fill the Molds

Quickly after drizzling the syrup in the cups, pour the mango sorbet mix into each cup. Drip the remaining berry syrup mixture on what will be the bottoms of the yogurt cups, then use a toothpick to swirl it around. Add wooden treat sticks to the middle of each pop.

Step 6: Freeze and Enjoy

Place the yogurt pops in the freezer for several hours. When you are ready to enjoy them, dip the yogurt container in warm water –  this will loosen the pop from the mold. Your children and spouse will devour these frozen goodies and then likely ask for another. Just save the yogurt cup molds for next time!
