RECIPE FOR THIS WEEK

Selected by Maxine Manjos

Breakfast Yoghurt Pops with Fruit and Granola

If you are like me and don't have molds for making pops, try this recipe by slightly oiling an 8-or 9-inch square metal pan, adding the ingredients and then sticking in wooden pop sticks at appropriate intervals when the mixture is partially frozen. You can cut the mixture into squares and enjoy square pops-- a little unusual, but that's part of the fun.
