It’s getting hot outside so here’s a cool idea. Let’s make your own popsicles. It’s a lot easier than you think plus this recipe uses simple healthy ingredients like fruit and greek yogurt.
We used strawberry greek yogurt, fresh strawberries and mangos. But feel free to use your favorite yogurt and fruit to make your popsicle. You can try other fruit such as kiwi, blueberries, raspberries and more.
Our “straw trick” is so much fun and we use it all the time:
Simply take a drinking straw and push it through the bottom of the strawberry until the stem come out at the top. It leaves a small hole through the middle of the strawberry giving you more to enjoy.
Next, cut your fruit into small chunks and pieces then set the fruit aside. Always use safe knife practices when cutting.
Place your yogurt in the popsicle mold. Keep scrolling for a few great options for popsicle molds for your home.
SOUS CHEF MOMMY TIP:Try this easy, no-mess way to add yogurt to the popsicle mold. Spoon yogurt in a plastic storage bag then cut the tip of the bag. Then just squeeze the yogurt out of the tip into the mold… Brilliant!
We were going for the layered popsicle look that we had seen so many times on Pinterest. The key is to fill the mold with yogurt until about 1/3 full then freeze it for about 30 minutes. Then pack in your cut fruit on top of the frozen yogurt until the mold is 2/3 full then freeze again for another 30 minutes. Finally, add the remaining yogurt over the fruit. So the layers in the mold would be:
Frozen yogurt – Frozen fruit – Frozen yogurt
My little chef was too
impatient excited to try his new treat, so we skipped the second freezing step. So our layers were more like:
Frozen yogurt – Frozen fruit with yogurt mixed
Place the tops firmly on the molds….
The next day take out your treats and let the sit at room temperature for a few minutes to make it easier to come out of the mold. Such a easy, fun and healthy cool treat. Or think how much your kids will love having popsicles as a quick and easy on-the-go breakfast.
