Frozen Yougurt Pops

Yogurt, yoghurt or yoghourt is a dairy product produced by fermentation of milk though bacteria called “yogurt cultures”. That procedure produces lactic acid hence the thick texture and sour taste. It’s an interesting process and here we can do that at home as you can easily buy yogurt kits in the supermarket. The name came from the Turkish word “yogurt” which in turn came from an old verb “yogmak” which means “to be curdled or to thicken”. Though the name is of Turkish origin yogurt itself originated very long time ago by culturing milk which dates back as far as 2000 BC. It was India and Iran who have the first evidence in writing which dates back to 500 BC. Indian record suggest that there is a combination of yogurt and honey is called “the food of the gods” while Persian traditions believe that Abraham secret to fertility and longevity is by regular consumption of yogurt.


Enough with the history and lets now go to the post. This Frozen Yogurt Pops were made by my daughter after we bought some popsicle containers several weeks ago, she loves those frozen yogurt and one day she said why can’t she make one at home using the flavoured yogurt tubs you buy in the supermarket. So the week after we had some of those tubs in our shopping trolley and eventually made it at home. It is really simple all you need are those flavoured yogurt and some sugar and you’re good to go. You can even make it fancier by using real fruits to give it more texture and flavour, I am sure not a lot would like yogurt but before you turn it down I suggest you try this first as this is really good you won’t even know you are eating yogurt, I can even drop my ice cream for this one.

For the recipe I will be giving you two version, one would be the easy one and another if you want to use your own fruits, so here it goes.

    That’s why Abraham is the father of all nations – teeheehee! Yes, yogurt or yoghurt or yougourt (I never know which spelling to properly use) is good for the body because it adds healthy probiotics to our internal flora! I should be eating more of this, really!
