Sponge Bobs (a.k.a. Yogurt-sicles)

The husband and I drove way down south to Illinois last weekend to meet up with some pals from college and their three beautiful children. While the men went golfing, the women-folk spent some time around the homestead. We ate a leisurely breakfast, took a walk, and chatted up a storm.

When hunger pangs struck around 12:30 and the husbands were still on the links, Sarah came to the rescue with a delicious snack to hold us over until lunchtime: Sponge Bobs.

I'll pause here because the name of this treat may be a bit confusing. You see, Sarah has a 2-year-old who loves a certain cartoon character who lives in a pineapple under the sea, and she named the snack after the illustration on the packaging. Sponge Bobs are actually yogurt-sicles. (And "yogurt-sicles" may not be any less confusing.)

Anyway, this is a little bit of a cheat in the recipe department, since you don't actually make Sponge Bobs, but they are so easy, refreshing, and wonderful that I had to share the "recipe" with you all. As you can see from the photo below, they are the perfect, portable treat to enjoy while you're working on your laptop. In fact, I might go get one right now...

From: Sarah

Buy a box of yogurt tubes (such as Go-Gurt*).

Put them in the freezer until they have frozen solid.

Cut off the top of the packaging, wrap it with a napkin so your fingers don't get too cold, and eat the frozen yogurt like a popsicle.

*Sarah had Go-Gurt at her house, but I bought Stonyfield Farms yogurt tubes when I tried this at home. I have to admit, I think the Go-Gurt ones are the best.
