Strawberry Lemonade Popsicles

Enter to Win a 170z bottle of Carapelli Organic Extra Virgin Olive Oil through May 22nd.

Something about popsicles, they remind you of hot summer days, lounging in the grass barefoot, the music box sound of an ice cream truck long gone and the forgotten giggles of childhood. I have never been much for frozen treats, one or two bites and I’m satisfied (so anything on a stick melted long before I even came close to finishing). I recently saw a popsicle recipe book and was reminded of the endless flavor combinations possible with these frozen treats and it sparked my interest.

Even though I may not love lots and lots of frozen treats, one here and there would be nice. And I do run a food blog… You know, cuz I needed an excuse to have popsicle molds in the kitchen… ūüėÄ

Strawberry Lemonade Popsicles

Recipe from Willow Bird Baking,  adapted from Our Best Bites and The Kitchn

Ingredients:

For the Lemonade Layer:

  • 1 1/3 cups lowfat yogurt, plain or vanilla
  • 1/4 cup fresh lemon juice
  • 5 tbsp sugar

For the Strawberry Layer:

  • 1 pint strawberries, cored and quartered
  • 1/4 cup sugar
  • 2 tablespoons water
  • 1 teaspoon lemon juice
  • 1 cup plain yogurt

Preparation:
First, make the lemonade layer mixture. Heat the lemon juice in a small, microwaveable bowl for around 45 seconds and dissolve all the sugar into it. Pour this mixture into a medium bowl with the yogurt and whisk until smooth. Refrigerate until ready to assemble popsicles.

Make strawberry layer mixture. Place the strawberries, water, and sugar in a medium saucepan and bring to a bowl. Simmer for around five minutes until the strawberries are soft. Pour this mixture and the lemon juice into a food processor and pulse until almost pureed, but not liquefied. (I was feeling lazy and used a potato masher) Chill in the refrigerator until cool, and then whisk the yogurt into the strawberry mixture until well combined.

Assemble the popsicles. Use a teaspoon or tablespoon to carefully spoon alternating layers of lemon and strawberry mixture into your molds. If you typically like your lemonade more sweet than tart, use more strawberry layers than lemon. If you prefer more tart than sweet, use more lemon layers than strawberry. Freeze overnight. To unmold, dip molds into warm water and gently pull popsicles out. Serve immediately.

 

These popsicles became melty little treats almost instantly and I believe I may be hooked. Now there is a list of popsicle recipes I want to try. Have any great ones you?

    So I have the same Popsicle mold but it’s so hard to get them out each time. Do you try to get the plastic part out or warm each under water and then pull out.? Sometimes I just wanna get one out..

      I sometimes have to warm mine a minute or two under water. If you do this for all of them, wrap each in wax paper and seal with a rubber band and bam, you have them ready when you want to grab them.
