Yogurt, Mango, Pineapple, Ginger-Mint Popsicles
I got some popsicle molds for my birthday and this is my first experiment:
1 C Nonfat Yogurt
1 6oz can Pineapple Juice
1 whole Mango (peeled and chopped)
1 1-inch knob Ginger (peeled and chopped)
3 srpigs Mint
2 tablespoons Sugar Syrup
Microwave the ginger in the juice for 2 minutes, then strain. Blend everything in a blender, then pour into molds and freeze for 4 hours.
I think I might reduce the amount of yogurt and add more juice in the future.

In four glasses or goblets, alternately layer strawberries, yogurt, granola, and banana, finishing with a light sprinkling of granola on top, with a few slivers of strawberry for garnish. Chill or eat immediately.
