Makes 6 pops

Recipe by Deanna Segrave-Daly, RD, LDN

Ingredients
1 c low-fat milk
1⁄4 c sugar
1 1⁄4 c nonfat plain greek yogurt
1⁄4 tsp vanilla extract
supplies:
6 popsicle sticks
2 4 oz. paper cups (for extra mixture)
Instructions

Add corn to a bowl. Do not throw out cups; wash and dry them to use for freezing pops. Mash corn with a potato masher to release liquid.

In a medium pot over medium heat, add corn, milk and sugar. Heat for 5 minutes, mixing a few times, until sugar dissolves and corn softens. Remove from heat and puree in blender. Pour through mesh sieve into a medium bowl. Cool in refrigerator for about 10 minutes.

Whisk yogurt and vanilla extract into cooled corn milk. Pour mixture into four empty Libby’s Cups and the remaining mixture into two 4-oz. paper cups. Position a 3½-inch popsicle stick in the center of each cup and freeze overnight.
