Frozen Peach Yogurt Cups

Do you love frozen yogurt? Do you love fruit?  Do you love eating dessert knowing that it's healthy for you?
I'm about to share with you my all-time FAVORITE recipe for summer. No joke, ya'll. My friend keeps them stored in the freezer at her lake house and they are perfect for a hot summer day. Or anytime, really.

You'll need..


Sugar, a lemon, peach yogurt (I used Yoplait Light), Sour cream (I used the light brand from HT), chopped pecans, crushed pineapple, maraschino cherries, and two bananas.

First, mix together the yogurt, sour cream, and sugar.


 Then stir in your other ingredients.


And don't forget to squeeze lemon juice into the mixture!


Because I lack freezer space, I lined a cookie sheet with foil cupcake liners. (You can also just use a cupcake or muffin pan!)


Pour the yogurt into the cupcake liners...


And freeze until solid. When they're completely frozen, pop 'em out of the pan and store them in a large zip-lock bag. They'll keep for the whole summer! But if you're like me...



They won't be around long.


I may or may not have eaten one for breakfast this morning..


The best part? These babies are only 75 calories. That's right.

They make the perfect dessert after dinner, or they can be eaten as a side with your lunch. They are "healthy" since they contain yogurt, fruit, and nuts! I promise you once you taste them you'll be in love. They're sweet and tangy at the same time, and you feel like you're eating something "bad" for you since it tastes SO, SO good. Mmmmmm.

*Yields 21 servings, approximately 75 calories each

Enjoy!

Love, Caitlin
