Summer Time Treats-Orange Banana Smoothie Pops

In the summer time I love trying out new recipes from Country Living Magazine. I tried this one with a few modifications and our family loved them.

Orange-Banana Smoothie Pops

1 container(s) (7-ounce) Greek yogurt
2/3 cup(s) thawed orange juice concentrate
2 large bananas
Zest of 1 lime
1 tablespoon(s) fresh lime juice
DIRECTIONS: Puree one Greek yogurt, thawed orange juice concentrate, bananas, lime zest, and fresh lime juice in a blender.
Pour into six 3-ounce molds. (We used mini baking tins with Popsicle sticks, but you can also substitute paper cups.) Freeze until smoothie pops are solid, about 4 hours.
To release pops, dip molds into hot water until pops loosen and slide out. If using cups, peel away paper.
