  1. Gather your supplies
  2. Split the ingredients into 4 even layers. Put a layer of yogurt on bottom of cup, layer on some strawberries, add more yogurt, layer on blueberries and top off with more yogurt. The ingredients should fill your cup about ¼ of the way. Insert the chew stick into the middle of the cup. Freeze overnight.
  3. Once frozen, cut away plastic cup.

  1. Nice idea, but there are many great alternatives to single use plastic for this. Ice trays are one example, popsicle trays another.
