If you are looking for an alternative option for this yummy treat look no further. And the best part about it is I have created it to where you do not have to stray away from your meal plan. AND.... there is one "semi" naughty addition - which is not as bad as it sounds. You can make it work without feeling the major guilt we have all felt before... "Why did I do that?" or "Was it even worth it?"
Please find this quick and easy recipe that will make you want to eat these Paletas everyday!!!!
Homemade Healthy Paleta
1 - 5.3 oz. container - Dannon Light and Fit Yogurt Greek Yogurt
14 grams - sliced non salted almonds
Note: If nuts are not on your meal plan don't add them - there are so many amazing flavors to choose from - the nuts are just an added bonus.
Mix the almonds in the existing container of yogurt. Put the contents in a popsicle mold (you can purchase at Walmart, Marshalls or Target) and freeze. The specific mold I was able to find will make two paletas per one serving of yogurt. You might be able to find a larger size that will fit one serving, just adjust accordingly.
AND.... for that added extra treat I mentioned. You can mix up 1 serving of PB2 and add that to the contents before freezing.
