My new obsession is popsicles. It’s been so hot around here, I’ve been craving ice cream and frozen yogurt like crazy. But lately, I’ve been dreaming about making my own popsicles. There are so many flavors and variations from fruit and yogurt pops to lemonade-based pops to boozy pops. The possibilities are endless.
Last weekend I was out at Tysons Corner having dinner with a friend and, of course, took the opportunity to swing by one of my favorite stores, Williams Sonoma. They were having a special sale on popsicle molds. I’m telling you, there were so many so choose from including a brand called Zoku that makes these instant freeze popsicles. Although I wanted to buy all the molds – and essentially the entire store because the gadgets section is my absolute favorite (I mean, of course I need a tea bag squeezer. How did I survive all this time without one! Oh yea, I would wrap the teabag string around the spoon and pull)- ultimately, I ended up with the classic molds that hold about 8 pieces.
What kind of popsicles had I been craving? Something with yogurt and fruit. Like I said, the possibilities are pretty much endless.
- 3 cups Plain Nonfat Greek Yogurt
- ½ cup Sliced Strawberries
- ¼ cup Honey, add more for additional sweetness
- In a medium bowl, whisk together Greek yogurt and honey until smooth
- Evenly distribute the strawberry slices in each popsicle mold
- Pour the greek yogurt-honey mix into each mold, making sure to use a spoon to push the mixture all the way into the bottom of the mold
- Insert the popsicle sticks and freeze overnight (at least 8 hours)
