1 cup sliced strawberries
1 container (6 oz) Yoplait® Original 99% Fat Free Key lime pie or French vanilla yogurt (“Mom” prefers organic)
1 cup packed fresh spinach leaves
1/4 cup apple juice
1. In blender, place French vanilla yogurt and strawberries. Cover; blend until smooth. Spoon 2 tablespoons mixture into each of 5 (5-oz) paper cups. Cover cups with foil; insert craft stick into center of each pop. (Or fill ice pop molds according to manufacturer’s directions.) Put remaining mixture in bowl; cover and refrigerate. Freeze pops about 2 hours or until frozen.
