Greek yogurt home made Popsicle

I sometimes have a hard time watching my husband eat his ice cream desert every night after dinner!!
I try to eat 5 to 6 meals a day with the eat clean diet and I try to have something that is high in protein in the evenings to get me through the night!  

If I am craving something salty I will have edamame
and that seems to do the trick for a crunch and salty treat!!!
A 1-cup serving of the cooked beans has 17 grams of protein,
edamame contains 8 grams of fiber in every cooked cup. For a man, this is over 23 percent of his recommended daily intake; for a woman, it's 28 percent of her requirement per day!!
Sometime I even have egg whites since they are high in protein and keep me from feeling starving in the morning!!
But when that craving hits for something sweet and you are a ICE CREAM Fan!! Try this !!
Greek yogurt popsicle
Take a cup of Greek yogurt and follow these simple steps!!
Step 1. Buy Greek yogurt of your choice in a cup
Step 2. Cut a small slit in the top of foil on the cup
Step 3. Put a popsicle stick in the slit or a plastic knife or spoon (I had knives)
Step 4. Place in the freezer and wait till frozen

After the yogurt has frozen I left them in the freezer a day. You will need to run them under hot water a little to loosen up the yogurt from the sides of the container. Step 3 remove the foil and step 4 pop your healthy treat out of the container and ENJOY 18g of protein  !!
This is super easy and kid friendly too!!
