It hasn’t been the best of summer’s in Red Deer. I guess the floods in Calgary really speak to that. Funnily enough the weather now, as we’re approaching fall, is getting warmer. Interesting is the best word describe how the summer has been here.

With warm temperatures I felt it was time to make another yoghurt pop. Something tropical! I just happened to have fresh mango and canned pineapple in the house. There’s nothing like a clean four ingredient recipe.

PLEASE REMEMBER that the calories mentioned apply to the brands and quantities of the ingredients I use. Please alter the calories based on the brands and quantities of ingredients you use. Same brand items made in the United States, may have a different calorie content than same brand items made here in Canada, please always read the calories on the label.

– 1/3 c. Western Family Balkan Style Fat Free Yoghurt, 36 calories
– 1/4 c. So Delicious Unsweetened Coconut Milk, 11 calories
– 1/2 c. Dole Crushed Pineapple, 80 calories
– 146 g/~5.25 oz. skinned and pitted fresh mango, 88 calories

Place all ingredients in a Magic Bullet or blender until you have a smooth consistency. Fill the popsicle molds leaving rom at the top for expansion.

Yield: 4 yoghurt pops, each pop is 54 calories.

These fruity pops were wonderful. They have the texture of popsicles rather than ice cream due to the water content in fruit. I, having a large sweet tooth, would add a little Splenda or stevia next time.

It’s my personal goal to make weight loss and weight maintenance deliciously easy for you and me. May your journey be scrumptious and the company you keep inspiring and supportive.
