Strawberry Yogurt Pops


Strawberry Yogurt Pops
http://savoryseasonings.blogspot.com/

1 LB strawberries (fresh or frozen), hulled
¼ cup sugar
1/2 TBSP lemon juice

2 cups yogurt, sweetened with sugar and vanilla to taste

Puree strawberries, sugar and lemon juice in a blender or food processor. Pour into a squeeze bottle or bowl, then set aside. If using plain yogurt, sweeten with sugar and vanilla then pour into a squeeze bottle or bowl.

Fill each popsicle mold with strawberry and yogurt mixes, alternately squeezing or spooning the mixtures into each mold to create a swirl pattern. Insert wooden sticks and freeze for at least 6 hours or until solidly frozen.

Remove molds from freezer and allow to soften for 5 minutes, then remove popsicles from molds. Serve immediately or wrap separately in plastic wrap and store in a bag in the freezer.

If you don’t have squeeze bottles on hand, using a bowl and spoon will work just fine. Squeeze bottles are usually just over $1.00 at any super store (like Wal-Mart) or kitchen store. They are great to have around for dispensing syrup, dressings and sauces. I keep several of them on hand and use them often. Recipe inspired from Women’s Day magazine.

where did you get your popsicle molds at?

I bought my molds at Orson Gygi but you can find similar molds at Amazon or other Kitchen gadget shops. They have been fun to use.

Woo hoo, I just got some vintage Tupperware popsicle molds and can't wait to use them. This recipe looks delicious and I plan on trying it out soon. Thanks!

Hello! I actually found your blog from off my baby center post about blogging and cooking :)

This sounds like a GREAT idea! I am curious though... how do you store the popsicles once they are frozen? Seems like it would take up too much space to just leave it in the freezer in the molds...

Hello! After I take them out of the molds, I wrap them separately in plastic wrap and store all of the wrapped popsicles in a bag in the freezer. They are a fun treat, my daughter loves them.

How much sugar & vanilla would you recommend? I've never made homemade yogurt before and would love to give it a try!

Hi Jennifer, I would start by adding 1 tsp of sugar and a dash of vanilla to 1 cup of plain yogurt and see if it's sweet enough. If it needs a little more, try an additional tsp. of sugar. Good luck!
