Our Shamrock Freezer Pops are super festive – and the yogurt and milk in ‘em will make your inner leprechaun grin!
Enjoy St. Patty’s Day without all those empty calories in sweet goodies or [gasp!] green beer. These Shamrock Freezer Pops
are made from Yoplait Key Lime Yogurt and milk, so they pack some nom nutrition in with all that festive fun!
We introduced you to this super special freezer pleaser last fall with our Halloween Freezer Pops
. Now we’re baaaaack
with a green pops version, all shamrocked up to knock the little elfin socks off your leprechauny holiday.
You can do these in regular freezer pop molds and just freeze ‘em for a longer time if you want. But if you haven’t checked out a Zoku maker
yet, do it! Serious coolness and
Here’s how it’s done:
Dude...chill out! I mean, chill that pop-maker for 24 hours ‘til it’s good ‘n frosty.
Surprise! There are only a few supplies! Line 'em up.
Unroll the green Fruit Roll-Ups snacks and cut out little shamrocks. This is the hardest part. And it’s not hard. I used a tiny heart cookie cutter and put three little hearts together to make the shamrock.
Use a sharp knife if you don’t have a little cookie cutter. Or find a magic leprechaun to just zap ‘em out with his little green fingers.
Tip the Zoku maker up on end and, using the paddle tool or a thin frosting spatula, press the fruity shamrocks to the upper wall of each of the three pop molds.
Be sure to wet the shamrocks first so they stick inside the slots like a tongue sticks to a flag pole in the winter. See ... they're in there!
In a small bowl, mix the Yoplait Key Lime Yogurt, milk and a wee bit o’ food coloring.
Tip the maker back upright and add the pop sticks, then fill with the yogurt mixture.
Wait and watch the pops freeze before your very eyes! Then use the special release tool to take the pops out. And, lookie there!
Display them in the Zoku stand if you want. I put the stand on a plate piled with Lucky Charms cereal to hide the stand. Hehe … just about as clever as a sneaky little leprechaun, I’d say.
If you’re feeling VERY magical, dip the ends of the pops in the remaining yogurt and some edible gold glitter. Oh yah – this is the stuff rainbows and pots of gold are really made of!
Erin go bragh!
