Congratulations to blog winner Jason, who has randomly won a copy of “Pops! Icy Treats for Everyone” by Krystina Castella. Jason wrote, “I’d like to learn some *HEALTHY* alternatives other than froyo and low-fat ice cream. I think this book might do the trick!”
Jason, I hope you have a very cool summer with some tasty freezer pops courtesy of this book. Email me at email@example.com to claim your prize.
If you wanted to win this book but did not, I have good news for you. And it’s better news than the standard “You can find this online at blah blah blah.” This book, in fact, is available for sale at any Kohl’s department store or at Kohl’s online for only $5. All of the proceeds go to national children’s health and education initiatives. You may have heard about the Kohl’s Cares program. Well, this is part of that program.
I shared some recipes from this cookbook on my blog the other day, and I’ll share one more now for Coconut Cream Yogurt Pops. Hope you all enjoy!
Coconut Cream Yogurt Pops
Makes six 8-oz. pops
1 1/2 cups sweetened shredded coconut
3 cups vanilla yogurt
1/2 cup milk
1/3 cup plus about 2 Tbsp. honey
1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Spread the coconut on a baking sheet and toast for 7 minutes.
2. In a blender, process the yogurt, milk and 1/3 cup honey until smooth. Stir in 1 cup of the toasted coconut.
3. Pour the yogurt mixture into pop molds. Insert the sticks and freeze for at least 8 hours.
4. When it comes time to serve, dab some of the remaining honey onto the pops and pat the remaining coconut onto the pops. Serve immediately.
