Fresh Spearmint Chocolate Chip Frozen Yogurt Pops

Desserts, SnackDina CheneyComment

Greek yogurt adds richness, creaminess, and protein to these pops. I love that they star fresh spearmint leaves, rather than mint extract. If you have kids, see if they can tell the difference!

Makes 6 small pops

  • 1 pint (2 cups) 2% plain Greek yogurt, such as Total brand
  • ½ cup granulated sugar
  • ½ cup fresh spearmint leaves (about 3-4 large sprigs)
  • ⅛ teaspoon salt
  • ½ cup semisweet or dark chocolate chips
  1. Add the first four ingredients to a food processor, and process until almost smooth, about 40 seconds. Add the chocolate, and process until broken up into small pieces, about another 20 seconds.
  2. Pour mixture (it will be thick) into six Dixie cups, stick a popsicle or craft stick in the center of each, and freeze until firm, at least 2 hours.
  3. To serve, pull pops from the cups (running under warm water can help loosen them).
