31 Days of Pinterest: Day Eighteen: Frozen Fruit Pops

Such a GREAT summer treat for kids!!!  And healthy to boot!  Can't beat it!

You'll need...

one container Greek yogurt (I used vanilla)
1 Tbs honey (may want more if you want a sweeter covering)
fruit - enough for 12 "chunks" (I used strawberries and mango)
small toppings (chocolate chips, coconut, sprinkles, etc)
12 popsicle sticks
wax paper

Mix together your yogurt and honey.
Place in the freezer for five minutes to thicken up.
While it's freezing, place each piece of fruit on one popsicle stick.
Using a spoon, coat the fruit with yogurt.  Sprinkle on one topping of choice and place on a baking sheet lined with wax paper.


Place into the freezer for a couple of hours.  Remove and let stand 1-2 minutes before eating.  Any leftovers can be put in a freezer bag back into the freezer until you're ready to eat.


All three of my kids LOVED these! 



One caution... the outside is tricky and makes you think of chocolate covered fruit... it's much more bitter as yogurt and they may not be prepared!!! 

I LOVE this picture!!!  Hilarious!


He did end up eating it all and had a strawberry one too... 
and loved them!  
The initial shock of bitter yogurt takes some getting used to! :)

What you should know about HIV

-HIV can NOT be spread through casual/household contact. HIV is not spread through hugging, kissing, shaking hands, sharing toys, sneezing, coughing, sharing food, sharing drinks, bathing, swimming or any other casual way. It has been proven that HIV and AIDS can only be spread through sexual contact, birth, breastfeeding and blood to blood contact (such as sharing needles). - HIV is now considered a chronic but manageable disease. With treatment, people who are HIV+ can live indefinitely without developing AIDS and can live long and full lives. - People who are HIV+ deserve to be treated with love, respect, support and acceptance as all people do. Additional information on transmission of HIV can be found on the Center for Disease Control website: http://www.cdc.gov/hiv/resources

Little Did I Know

Little did I know that the road would be so rocky
Little did I know that the trip would take so long
Little did I know that my heart could hurt so much
Little did I know that God is never wrong

Little did I know that love could be so powerful
Little did I know that a dream so far could go
Little did I know that God would place the right ones
Little did I know that my heart, so large, could grow

Little did I know that a dream has it’s own timing
Little did I know that this day would finally come
Little did I know that four souls would be sent to guide me
Little did I know that they would choose to call me mom

But God knew all along and He had a plan to follow
God knew all along that my dream would soon come true
God knew all along that we five should be together
God knew all along that I’d share it all with you
