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… :D

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?

    Those are so great! I haven’t had a popsicle in forever. I remember having them when I was younger on hot days in the summer when I needed something to cool off. Mom always had the popsicles in hand and ready to go for my siblings and I when we came for a break.

    I love the colors with these Kita…seriously looks so refreshing!

  7. loving the pretty 2 tone pops great job photographing too :)

  8. Love these! They look so colorful and refreshing. Definitely want to bookmark these and give them a whirl.

  9. Oh yum! These look so refreshing! And I have all the ingredients at hand … no prizes for guessing what I’ll be doing tomorrow :D I had an interesting popsicle recipe earlier to post but the popsicles disappeared before I could do so. They tend to do that don’t they? Good excuse to make more! :D

  10. Love that these are made with yogurt! I’ll have to buy some Popsicle molds soon so I can make them!

  11. Everyone needs popsicle molds, especially when you can make tasty things like these!

  12. I’ve got to get me a popsicle mold!! These look brr-reat!! LOL

  14. I don’t particularly like non-chocolate popsicles, but these sure do look pretty! :)

  15. These treats of yours look beautiful!! Now I want to just jump in my car and buy popsicle molds!

  16. Thank-you, Kita. I am 9 years old again – but with a lot more confidence. These look summer-sweet!

  17. What fabulous popsicles! Perfect for the hot days of summer…with real fruit and yogurt…YUM!

  18. I just made some popsicles, but these will have to be next! I love the layered look and flavor combination going on here.

  19. I just ordered some popsicle molds from amazon yesterday! Can’t wait to try these and many more flavors!

  20. These are so gorgeous, Kita. I have a jar of strawberry puree in the freezer and I’ve been meaning to do something like this with it!

  21. Ahhh these are beautiful and look so good right now, especially since temps are finally getting hot!

  22. Oh, I am SO going to make these; heavy on the lemon part since we like tart here. I need to go pick more strawberries! Thanks for sharing the recipe.

  23. These look amazing!!

  24. I’m not a fan of lemonade, unless it’s 5 parts sugar 1 part lemon. not a sour person. I’d take the sweet route with my popsicles. The strawberry layer is calling my name

  25. What a great way to eat yogurt…it’s been forever since I made popsicles. I must shop for some molds I think. Lemon flavor is always so refreshing and I can never resist strawberries.

  26. I love the idea of sweet and sour together, so I’d love lemonade and strawberry together. Is it wrong to think that a Popsicle would be good dipped into an afternoon cocktail?

  27. delicious lovely colour pops looks wonderful

  28. These sound and look silly delicious! Perfect for summer!

  34. These are amazing! My daughter and I made these last night and I am hooked. But just so everyone knows, popsicle molds are nice to have but not essential. We make out popsicles in either dixie cups, styrophom cups, or paper cups. I bought a giant box of popsicle sticks whole sale for the summer and we are on a mission to try a new flavor concoction every day of the spring/summer. You just put the popsicle mix into the cup, freeze them long enough to be slushy to hold up the stick (Honestly, we cheated on these ones and put the sticks right in. They ended up slanty but still deliscious), put the stick in and freeze overnight. When we’re rady to eat them, we just cut/tear the cups off.

  35. I cut down on the sugar by about 1/2 in each of the mixtures. I also let the strawberries sit in the sugar for about an hour before I mashed them. Delicious! I love keeping the sweet and sour separated, each bite is different :-) yum!
