A Yummy Summer Treat: Popsicles


Yesterday we made the best popsicles!  We each enjoyed one, Presley two!
First you need to have a fabulous sister in law and two brothers to buy your daughter (you) a Zoku.
I keep mine in the freezer, so it is always accessible.


You'll need:
about 2 cups strawberries cut in half
2 Tbsp sugar
half a lemon lightly squeezed
vanilla yogurt 


Oh, and a trusty little assistant!

 
Put the strawberries, sugar, and lemon juice in the blender.
Blend completely.



Layer vanilla yogurt and strawberry puree in your Zoku or popsicle molds.
Insert stick and freeze.


Place popsicles on parchment paper until you eat or put in freezer bags in the freezer.


Enjoy outside!

These look amazing! Camryn has been asking me every since we left your house to make popsicles. She must have heard you as we were leaving. Apparently I need one of these. I have never heard of them. Better then a regular popsicle maker? Don't know the difference.

I LOVE our Zoku! We keep ours in the freezer as well. I purchase extra sticks so I can have popsicles pre-made and frozen in ziploc baggies. I will definitely try this recipe out. I hadn't thought of using frozen yogurt...Yum!

Amanda Klein said...

I've never heard of a Zoku! How long does it take to freeze?
