Since school started back my kids want to eat all afternoon when they get home.  They are starving slap to death at the end of the day. (poor things).  I remember being like that too. Here is a great recipe for an after school snack I discovered over at Mommy's Kitchen.

You need:

Yogurt
Jello
Sugar
Water
Molds

Easy to make!  Just mix it together and then add it to your molds. I did not have enough molds but I did have silicone cupcake liners which work great. I just added my Popsicle sticks to them. I do wish they had been a little bit deeper. But y'all know I usually try to use what is on hand versus going to the store. 



Homemade Popsicle, recipe , homemade popsicleI love the pretty color of these!

Steps :

1.  Bring 1 cup of water to a boil and dissolve jello (4 ounce size) into it.  Stir well!

2.  Add 1/2 cup of sugar and again stir until dissolved.

3.  Add yogurt now using a wire whisk and beating constantly until smooth.

4.  If you are adding fruit do it NOW.

5.  Pour into popsicle molds and freeze overnight.

This was strawberry jello with plain yogurt.  You could use any flavor variety so mix it up !  Kids Love them!
