Top Pop

Making (and eating) this cool confection is a great way for dads and kids to chill together.

What you’ll need:

  • ice pop molds or small paper cups and wooden sticks
  • blender
  • vanilla yogurt
  • your favorite fresh or frozen red berries
  • 1–2 tablespoons of water
  • honey or sugar to taste


Rinse berries (or defrost, if frozen). Coarsely chop fruit in a blender, and add water and sugar or honey if desired. The mix should drop easily from a spoon but not be runny. In each ice pop mold or paper cup, alternate layers of fruit mix with yogurt, creating the red and white stripes of the Cat in the Hat’s hat.

Place pops in the freezer for a few hours, then wiggle the pops out, and relax with your frozen treat and a good book!
