A home made refreshing Strawberry and Greek Yogurt Cream Pop that will satisfy your sweet craving and uses real foods.
I saw a post on Buzzfeed that inspired me to play with making my own ice pops. They were featuring healthy home made ice pops as well as booze infused pops which looked too good to pass up. I went to the supermarket and looked for what fruit was on sale, it happened to be strawberries.
My first attempt at home made ice pops were the strawberry and greek yogurt cream pop, which turned out great! My five year old nephew even loved them. These are a great alternative to buying pre-made ice pops that have a lot of artificial sweetener and often don’t taste like the actual fruit.
When you make your own ice pops you know exactly what you are putting in to them and really the ingredients are very healthy: strawberries, honey or agave nectar, and greek yogurt. Not complicated at all. The result, perfectly sweet ice pops that will leave you refreshed on a warm summer day.
I also am working on a Watermelon and Coconut Water flavor which is seriously delicious tasting. Look out for the recipe soon!
If you prefer to bake fresh fruit I have a great cobbler recipe that will blow your mind – Fresh Peach Raspberry Cobbler.
You could make this yogurt ice pop with any of your favorite fruits that pair well with greek yogurt. Instead of strawberries you could use peaches, raspberries, blueberries, the options are endless! Mix and match also. The result will be fresh and delicious no matter what fruit you use.
- 2 cups fresh sliced strawberries (about 1 package)
- 4 tablespoons agave nectar or honey
- 1 1/2 cups of vanilla nonfat Greek yogurt (2 containers)
- Put strawberries and 2 tablespoons agave or honey in food processor. Puree until the mixture is smooth but slightly chunky.
- In a bowl mix yogurt and additional 2 tablespoons of sweetener, until smooth.
- Fill Popsicle molds by starting with about 2-3 tablespoons of strawberry mixture and then 2 tablespoons of yogurt, switching off until mold is filled to the top. If you wish you could mix the two mixtures before putting into mold. Repeat with the rest of the molds.
- Place popsicles into the freezer until solid, about 4-5 hours.
