Two of my dear friends visited our house this weekend and I wanted to make something easy and light to have after we went out to dinner. Recently, I had tried this delicious yogurt pie and thought it would make perfect push pops. The recipe is super easy and super yummy! Perfect for these hot summer nights! (And talk about hot – it was 93 degrees at 9:30 this morning!)
First, you crush up the graham crackers. I used my food processor, but you could just put in a ziploc and smash away
Next, I melted the butter and then combined with the graham cracker crumbs and sugar.
Then, I dumped half of the Cool Whip into one bowl and half in another. Then I stirred in my yogurts to each of them making sure it was fully mixed and nice and fluffy. Then I spooned the mixture into gallon plastic baggies and snipped one of the corners so I could pipe it into the push pop containers.
To fill the containers, I first spooned in the graham cracker mixture and pushed it down with the back of a spoon. Then I piped in the lemon mixture, topped with more graham crackers and then added the raspberry mixture. I topped with more graham crackers, but you could also use cut up fruit or even sprinkles. Put the lid on and then I freezed overnight (they need at least an hour to harden up).
- 2 containers (6 oz.) yogurt, 1 raspberry & 1 lemon
- 1 container (8 oz.) whipped topping (Cool Whip)
- 1 sleeve of graham crackers (approx. 8 whole crackers)
- 1/2 cup of butter, melted
- 1 tbsp of sugar
- 10 push pop containers
- Crush the graham crackers in a food processor (or your preferred method) until there are no longer big pieces.
- Melt the butter and then combine with crushed graham crackers and sugar. Set aside.
- Spoon the Cool Whip evenly into two bowls. Then add one container of yogurt to each bowl. Stir with a spoon until fully combined.
- Spoon mixtures into two separate plastic bags and snip the corner of each bag. Spoon graham cracker mixture into bottom on push pop containers and press down with back of spoon.
- Pipe in lemon mixture and then top with more graham crackers. Pipe in raspberry mixture and then sprinkle with graham crackers. Place the lid on top and then freeze for at least 1 hour.
