Strawberry Vanilla Popsicles
You could tell it was summer this weekend! I decided to try out some popsicles based on the Firecracker Popsicles that were in the July/August issue of Everyday Food. I have a big flat of strawberries from Costco and needed to find some ways to use them up before they went bad. It can be hard with two people! This was a delicious and refreshing way to use them up! You can substitute any fruit - next I think I'm going to try blueberry and lemon! YUM!
Strawberry and Vanilla Popsicles
Adapted from Everyday Food
1 cup of strawberries
1 - 2 Tablespoons sugar, depending on how sweet your strawberries are
1 cup vanilla bean yogurt
Puree the strawberries and sugar until smooth. You can strain the seeds out if you want, I left them in.
Alternately layer the strawberries and yogurt in the popsicle molds. Take a knife and swirl in the mold. Freeze 2 -3 hours or until frozen. Enjoy!
