For my birthday this year, my wonderful next-door neighbor gave me a gift certificate to Prydes – this a-ma-zing local kitchen accessories store that I love-love-love! And after wandering around in heaven for about half an hour, I actually ended up settling on buying my first set of popsicle molds – yay!
I’ve made popsicles many a time before in Dixie cups (which work really well, and are adorable!), but there’s something so fun about pouring a pureed fruit mix into this classic shape. Brings back so many great memories of summers in the sun!
So for my initial batch, I decided to turn my strawberry limeade craving into something a bit healthier — these (fresh!) strawberry lime yogurt popsicles. The name basically describes the ingredients — just some fresh (or you could use frozen) strawberries, fresh lime juice, a little sweetener, and some of your favorite yogurt.
Needless to say, they were delicious! And I loved being able to feel good about controlling the amount of sugar, and using trusted fresh ingredients in these. AND, the batch cost much less than buying them at the store – perfect!
So pull out your popsicle molds, or Dixie cups, and make a fresh, delicious batch of your own!
Easy and delicious strawberry lime yogurt popsicles recipe you can feel good about enjoying!
1 pint fresh strawberries, hulled
1 cup yogurt (I used fat-free vanilla, but Greek-style would be great!)
3 Tbsp. sweetener (sugar, honey, etc.) — use more/less to taste
juice of half a lime
Place strawberries in a food processor, and puree to desired consistency. (I went pretty smooth, but you could leave in some chunks.) Add in yogurt, sweetener, and lime juice, and continue pureeing until well-mixed.
Pour mixture into popsicle molds (you can also use Dixie cups!), add popsicle sticks, and freeze until frozen. To remove from molds, just run a little warm water over the outside until they come loose.
Feel free to sub in your favorite flavors of yogurt in these as well! (I imagine adding in banana, key lime, or strawberry yogurt would make these extra flavorful!)
