We all know that on a hot day, nothing is more satisfying than something nice and cool. We also know that if you reach for those popsicles from the store... you are getting nothing but colored sugar water. Not a good thing. So in the spirit of Alton Brown (by and far one of my FAVORITE chefs!)
Why buy something when we can make it better???
Here we go.
If you remember, last year, I bought these popsicle pop molds.
I've used them SO many times, and the only problem is... I need another set. 6 is hardly enough for our crew. That's a good thing!
2 cups mashed strawberries, we like a little bit of chunk in ours, but you could puree if you don't
1 cup yogurt
1/3 cup honey
2 tsp vanilla
(Also... you could mix more fruit into this easily or substitute another fruit entirely!
It's all up to you!)
Mix well and fill your molds.
This made more than our six molds could hold, so I put the leftovers in tiny pyrex bowls for my husbands lunchbox. Single serve homemade strawberry yogurt? Yes, please!
For your pops, place in the freezer and chill till frozen through.
Grab em and enjoy when that summer sun starts beatin down on you!
