Delicious! I made 15 pops in paper cups -- and the hint of using a muffin tin is wonderful! I made a few minor changes to the recipe however, instead of vanilla yogurt (didn't have any on hand) I used plain/low-fat yogurt with a splash of vanilla and a spoonful of sugar added. I also used fresh strawberries which I pureed in the blender as indicated but then added the juice/yogurt to the blender and blended all together before pouring the mixture into the paper cups. Thanks for sharing this super easy recipe!
