Homemade Ice Cream

Remember those old Tupperware ice pop makers? I lived on them as a child, so when my baby first learned the words "ice cream" I went straight on eBay and bought a dozen. Now Lucas can eat "ice cream" as much as he wants, because I know it's full of only healthy things like yogurt or leftover whey protein from cheese making with a little juice. The last batch I made was probably the best one yet, and I figured I would share it with you.

*Vanilla Butter Pops*

1 Cup Vanilla Stonyfield Yogurt**
1/2 Cup Whole Milk
1/2 Cup Hazelnut "Milk"
2 Tbs Creamy Peanut Butter

Mix it well, pour into ice pop molds, and freeze. Eat, & Enjoy!


**Stonyfield products are fantastic. They have a higher pro-biotic count than any other, and their happy cows eat an all-natural diet free from chemicals. The owner is a big fan of responsible, sustainable agriculture and has eliminated corn from their diet and added a daily ration of herbs, cutting the cows' methane production in half. So you can buy their products with a clear conscience.

Oh, I remember these! I got some similar to these a few years back and started pouring my extra kefir smoothie in them for my girls. I'm going to have to try to make hazelnut milk - that sounds divine.

I used those freezer pop things so much when my children were little.
I should use them again for my husband and I, i just made yogurt this morning with fresh strawberries, would be great frozen

I get the hazelnut milk at teh health food store, but making you own is even yummier, I am sure :)

mmmm. sounds yummy! At my parents cottage we used to make ice cream from scratch... with the by hand crank and an automatic mixer. It was so much fun, dad would cut out some ice and mix forever until it was done. Always less sugar than the store bought kind, but definitely less healthy than your recipe here.
My fiance and I will definitely give it a try :)
