Holy Sh*t, These Greek Yogurt Ice Cream Bars Are Insanely Good

Holy Sh*t, These Greek Yogurt Ice Cream Bars Are Insanely Good

We have a bit of an obsession with healthy ice creams; from Halo Top to Enlightened, we’re always on the prowl for a good-for-you frozen treat. When a box of Yasso Frozen Greek Yogurt bars came to our desks, it was mere minutes before all of them were gone. The results? Amazing. Everyone was super into all the flavors.

Yasso’s sweet treats ring in at 100 calories a pop (pun intended), and 120 calories per sandwich. They each have five grams of protein, and are low in sugar – seven grams in the sandwiches and 14 grams in the pops (much, MUCH lower in sugar than the Unicorn Frappuccino). The bars have two grams of fat, while the sandwiches have 3.5 grams. You’ll also get some gut-friendly probiotics from the Greek yogurt, which is a nice added health bonus.

So how do they taste? Damn delicious. Here’s a breakdown of the flavors we tried – S’mores, Toffee Caramel Chocolate Chip, and Black Raspberry Chip bars, and Vanilla and Mint cookie sandwiches.

S’Mores

  • WOW.
  • OMG, it tastes like graham cracker! These are stupid good. Perfection.
  • Can’t believe it’s only 100 calories
  • You can really taste the graham cracker, and I like the marshmallow, but I’m not sure what they’re made of. The only reason I gave it a 4 is because of the aftertaste.
  • Literally tastes like a straight-up frozen s’more.

Mint Sandwich

  • Doesn’t taste that healthy!
  • I was put off by the tartness of Greek yogurt with mint, but with the Oreo it works!
  • It wasn’t all that minty, but somehow refreshing.
  • Had a funny aftertaste, but I keep going back for more. Overall pretty impressive for a healthy dessert.

Vanilla Sandwich

  • So good and yummy!
  • Can’t even taste the difference [between this and a regular ice cream sandwich].

Black Raspberry Chip

  • Great balance of fruit and chocolate!
  • Love the white and dark chocolate with the raspberry – a bit of an aftertaste though!

Toffee Caramel Chocolate Chip

  • Very rich! Good, but not sure I could finish it all.
  • Good ice cream flavor!

Fulfill Your Most Magical Dreams With These Mermaid Popsicles

Now that the weather is finally turning warmer, we feel like it makes at least a little more sense to be eating ice cream – specifically one of our favorites: Halo Top. To kick off Spring on the right foot, Halo Top created for us a simple recipe for magical mermaid popsicles using some of our favorite flavors. The pops here come in three different varieties, but using the recipe, you could easily create many more iterations to suit what you like.

Mermaid Ice Cream Pops

From Halo Top

Notes

We recommend purchasing an extra flavor if you’re like us and continually lick the bowl during preparation to ensure you have enough to fill the popsicle molds to capacity!

Ingredients

  1. Pistachio-Lemon Popsicle
  2. 1 cup Halo Top Pistachio Ice Cream
  3. 1 cup Halo Top Lemon Cake Ice Cream
  4. 2 tablespoons skim milk
  5. 2 teaspoons natural sprinkles
  1. Strawberry-Cherry Popsicles
  2. 1 cup Halo Top Strawberry Ice Cream
  3. 1 cup Halo Top Black Cherry Ice Cream
  4. 2 tablespoons skim milk
  5. 2 teaspoons natural sprinkles
  1. Birthday Cake Popsicles
  2. 1 cup Halo Top Strawberry Ice Cream
  3. 1 cup Halo Top Birthday Cake Ice Cream
  4. 2 tablespoons skim milk
  5. 2 teaspoons natural sprinkles

Directions

  1. To soften Halo top, set your desired flavors out on the counter for 15 minutes.
  2. In an easy-pour measuring cup, place 1 cup of desired flavor of choice, 1 tablespoon of milk, and 1 teaspoon of sprinkles. Mix together thoroughly until smooth, easy-to-pour consistency is achieved. If too thick, add a splash more of milk.
  3. In the bottom of 2 popsicle molds, evenly distribute the first layer. This should be about half of a standard popsicle mold.
  4. Repeat for each bottom layer of the remaining 4 molds, rinsing out the easy-pour measuring cup in between.
  5. Place bottom layer immediately into the freezer, allow to set for 20 minutes. At this time, remove remaining Halo Top flavors from the freezer to soften.
  6. Repeat steps 2 and 3 above to form the top layer.
  7. Once molds are filled to capacity, immediately place tops and sticks into each popsicle.
  8. Freeze for a minimum of 8 hours for best consistency.
