A quick announcement to share…we are leaving for Europe tomorrow (eeek!!). Our kids have never left the country before, and with my cousin and his family temporarily living in Paris we decided it was time to go on this adventure together. I am super excited about being inspired by the French food culture and will definitely be sharing some of our experiences on both the blog and my facebook page along the way. I also have some great guest posts lined up in our absence along with a few recipes of my own and other fun stuff so it won’t be too quiet around here…not to mention we will have wifi on all our travels. I have been looking forward to this for a long time so I cannot wait. Au revoir!
Who doesn’t love a frozen fudge pop? I was a BIG fan of them when I was younger so I worried that a knock-off “real food” version wouldn’t taste as good as what I remembered…but, oh was I wrong! And in case we need any proof my 8-year-old actually told me I was “acting like a kid” while we were eating them together for the first time. Oops – I must have gotten a little messy and proclaimed how good it was one too many times.
Sponsor Shoutout: Molly’s Suds
If you are looking to “clean up” other areas of your home the laundry room is a great place to start. Just last year our family started working on that switch and went from conventional laundry detergent to what we thought was “clean” laundry detergent to what (we now know) is really “clean” laundry powder. And yes, they are a sponsor, but I’ve tried quite a few different detergents and Molly’s Suds is honestly my favorite. The reason they won me over is because the safety of the product is unquestionable, the natural smell (peppermint) is divine, and the cleanliness is spot on! I definitely recommend trying them out at least once so you can see for yourself.
- In a medium sized bowl whisk together the syrup, cocoa powder, and vanilla until thoroughly combined and there are almost no clumps left. Slowly whisk in both the yogurt and milk.
- Pour into the popsicle molds, add a popsicle stick, and freeze. When you are ready to dig in, run a little bit of warm water on the outside of the molds to loosen them up so the popsicles come out easily. Enjoy!
