In California (where we live) as well as many states beyond, it still feels like summer outside. All last week I picked up overheated kids from school begging for something cool to eat or drink. Wanting to make sure Kenya and Chloe reach for a nutritious, yet fun treat to fill their bellies with a good for you snack, I made dozens (I mean an entire freezer full) of these Rainbow Yogurt Popsicles.

Not only are they gorgeous to look with all of the vibrant colors throughout, but they’re made with superfoods like acai and spinach as well as mango, blackberries, raspberries and pineapple. The best part is the 10 grams of protein per serving in the yogurt I used as the base for these totally irresistible popsicles!

I made one dozen with our family favorite delicious Annie’s Organic Whole Milk Plain Milk Yogurt and another with the Annie’s Very Vanilla Yogurt to see if the kids would prefer one flavor over the other in the Rainbow Yogurt Popsicles, but they licked them both up till they were only left with their sticks in hand. I love that Annie’s yogurt comes in quarts because we go through it so fast I feel like I’m constantly buying more. Gemma, who just turned one, has been cruising through almost a quart on her own every week!

Chloe loves having the Annie’s whole milk summer strawberry yogurt tubes in her lunchbox or an after school snack. I love that they’re perfect and easy to grab for on the go! This yogurt is made with real, simple ingredients like organic whole milk, real fruit, and has no GMOs, artificial colors, flavors or preservatives.

I originally made these wholesome popsicles with Kenya and Chloe in mind, but guess who’s also a big fan? I’ve been giving Gemma one on warm afternoons and let her lop it up on her own. It’s the cutest thing watching a baby suck on these Rainbow Yogurt Popsicles and they’re great for her too!
