Strawberry Yogurt Pops
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.
