Are sports a big deal in your house? I can guarantee that if there is a major game on, it is on a television in my house. It is fun being a sports fans, especially when it is time for the big game or the tournaments. I've noticed that food and games go hand in hand, but for some reason, the sweet element is always missing. I am changing that up this season, with a fun and kid-approved game time treat: Skittles Frozen Yogurt Pops!
I have always loved Skittles as a treat and I love having them on hand for my kids. Judge all you want, but I use them as a reward for doing their chores or having a good attitude. They get one of each color if they have been really good and besides having a bowl in front of me when I'm watching the big game, I also like to have a handful at night when I'm up late blogging, like right now.
This weekend, when doing my monthly shopping at Sam's Club I found the 54 oz bag of Skittles for less than $6, a deal I most certainly couldn't pass up, in fact, I may have bought two bags just to have extra on hand.
I know the rest of the country is in a deep freeze and elbow deep in snow, but here in sunny Southern California we are having 80 degree days and getting ready for the big games coming up. Right around March is when our warm Spring days start and my girls start asking for cooler treats, so I decided to come up with Skittles frozen yogurt pop, as a perfect sweet treat for hanging out and watching the game as a family.
The recipe is easy as 1-2-3 and even the kids can do it if you are looking for a way to get them to help you out. All you will need is:
Yogurt (any flavor, I used Vanilla), Skittles, Small cups or Popsicle mold, Popsicle sticks
Step 1. Layer
Yogurt and Skittles until the cup is full.
Step 2. Mix
Use popsicle stick to mix the Skittles will add color to the yogurt.
Step 3. Freeze!
3-4 hours or until Frozen solid. To remove, just give a little twist and pull.
Mmm... so good and so colorful! The Skittles give the yogurt such a nice rainbow color and flavor, as you lick away the yogurt the Skittles add a nice surprise to the texture and give you a sweet bite. The best part, because you are making such small pops, there are really only a small handful of Skittles in each pop, it's not an overload of sweetness and the yogurt balances the sweet with tart. Yum!
The perfect colorful sweet treat, perfect for the big games and tournaments.
