Yogurt Pops

It is HOT out there this week!  We need something cool to eat but also healthy. Yesterday I had seen a recipe for yogurt pops online and thought it was a great idea and today when I was in the store looking for cat wormer I picked up these
My mother had something similar that she used to fill with Kool-aid to make us cheap popsicles but yogurt-sicles are much more nutritious and tasty.
I made strawberry yogurt pops. I had some strawberries in a bag in the freezer. I just thawed a few strawberries in the microwave. It didn't take many- maybe 8 strawberries. I  then wizzed them up in my mini chopper. . .
...and then mixed it into some yogurt. To do all these little popsicles it took a little over half a quart of yogurt. I used my homemade yogurt (see Popular Posts on sidebar).

That's all there was to it. Put it in the little popsicle molds and freeze. Here is the final product. Sorry for the picture, batteries in the camera died so this is a phone picture.
I can already tell that these aren't going to last long. I have a few bananas on the table. I think the next ones will be Yogurt Banana Pops.

    1. I used plain yogurt but it is my own homemade yogurt (link is on the sidebar under Popular Posts) which doesn't taste anything like the plain yogurt in the stores.

  3. Well, that's pretty different to cat-wormer! How nice it must be to feel the need for iced treats. Here in the UK the weather is still awful, and unusually cold.
