According to my Facebook and Instagram feeds, school has already started for many kids. What?! It's August 12th! What happened to Labor Day being the bookend of summer? I refuse to let go of these humid, lazy days... but that's probably because I'm a whale with a tiny human camping out in my belly. So yesterday I made popsicles, because frozen treats = summertime magic. I recently bought these molds inspired by these pops (I mean, are you kidding me with those???) because my $1.99 Rite Aid brand just wasn't cutting it. They worked like a charm! And the creamy, strawberry frozen treat wasn't bad either. Perfectly sweet and tart at the same time. Aaaand now I'm obsessed with making popsicles. What's next, hmm...
If baby stays put for a few more days, I'm thinking Mint Chocolate Chip Fudge Pops sound ridiculous, don't you?
Strawberry Yogurt Popsicles
(Makes 6, depending on size of mold)
2 cups fresh or frozen strawberries, roughly chopped
1/3 cup greek yogurt
1 1/2 tsp vanilla
1 1/2 tsp fresh lemon juice
1/8 cup sugar
Place strawberries in a bowl and coat with sugar. Stir. Place all ingredients in a blender and puree until smooth. Pour into popsicle molds and freeze.
