Now that my kids are getting a bit older and are asking for things like Popsicle I really am starting to think about how much I give them and what I give them. When I found this recipe I was so excited to be able to make Popsicle from fresh fruit where I could control the ingredients that were in them instead of store bought where who knows what is in them. You can use regular yogurt, light yogurt or even Greek yogurt for this. Not to mention you can control the sugar content based upon how sweet your fruit is and how sweet you want the Popsicle. I froze mine in Dixie cups so they were the perfect size for the kids. Run under cool water and they slip right out of the cup when you are ready to serve.
~ 1 pint strawberries (or any berries)
~ 1/3 cup yogurt
~ 1/2 cup sugar (more or less depending on your berries and yogurt)
~ 2 Tbsp. water
~ Popsicle sticks
~ Dixie cups or Popsicle molds
1. Wash strawberries and cut stems off. Place in blender along with yogurt, sugar, and water. Blend until smooth.
2. Pour mixture into the Dixie cups or Popsicle molds
3. Place in freezer until firm and insert Popsicle sticks in the center of the Dixie cups. Continue to freeze until frozen, about 4-5 hours.
4. To serve run Dixie cups under cool water until Popsicle pulls out of the cup.
