The temperatures are peaking around 90° F down South, and we all know summer is approaching fast. The first snack item that pops up when I think summer is popsicles. This is a healthy and easy popsicle recipe with a mixture of flavors. The tangy mango mixture and sweet yogurt gives a refreshing bite to help beat the heat. Best of all, there are only 3 ingredients.

Step 4

In a separate bowl, whisk together 1/2 cup Greek yogurt and 1/2 cup simple syrup. Place the yogurt mixture and the mango mixture in the fridge for about 30 minutes. This will firm them up so that when you pour out the popsicles, these liquids won’t easily combine.
