I don’t know about you, but we’re in the midst of a heat wave here in the mid-Atlantic. It’s 100 degrees over here in the Diamond State of Delaware, and I’m finding myself breaking a sweat after walking from the front door to the car parked in the driveway.
All this hot weather has got me craving ice cream and popsicles, but because my mom is a health nut now, we don’t really have that stuff in my house. So, I asked her to buy popsicle molds so we could make our own healthy, frozen, fruit treats.
What I love about using these is that you don’t really need a recipe. Basically, take whatever fruit you have, add a little juice, yogurt, milk (cow or soy) and a little sweetener (sugar, honey, agave syrup) if your fruit isn’t all that sweet, and blend it. Pour them in the molds and freeze them for a few hours (I suggest overnight.)
But for these popsicles, I decided to get a little fancy. One of my favorite blogs is One Sheepish Girl and Meredith’s post on Vanilla Yogurt & Strawberry Popsicles inspired me to make my own variation.
