It’s strawberry season here in Raleigh! Recently we went to a farm by our house to pick a whole ton of strawberries (and there may have been some tasting along the way.)
We enjoyed our strawberries on strawberry shortcakes made with lemon poundcake (yum!), and smoothies, and just eating them plain, but I decided to use some for our first attempt at homemade popsicles. One of my besties, Lindsay, sent Nolan a popsicle kit for his birthday recently, so this was the perfect time to try it out.
These were extremely simple to make and with 4 basic ingredients they were a much healthier alternative to store bought pops. Brady did most of the work for this recipe. Here’s how it went down…
About 2 Cups of Fresh Strawberries
1 container of Greek Yogurt (we used Vanilla)
About 1 Tbs. lemon juice
About 1/4 to 1/3 cup of honey (sweeten to taste)
Add strawberries, yogurt, lemon juice, and honey to blender. Blend until completely smooth. Taste test- Add more honey if needed.
Pour fruit mixture into your popsicle mold. Set in freezer for at least 4 hours.
Use a little warm water to loosen the popsicles out of the molds, and then enjoy! The boys sure did.
Thanks for the sweet gift, Auntie Lindsay! I’m sure we’ve got a lot of popsicle making in our future this summer. So easy, and so yummy!
