Making homemade popsicles around our house is always a HUGE hit! My kiddos love making them and especially eating them. On this day, we took vanilla Greek yogurt and combined it with a little strawberry and lemon to make these tasty treats. This is such a fun summer activity to do (and enjoy!) with kiddos!
Don’t forget, you can also see my recipes for these…
…Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip & Toasted Coconut Cream Greek yogurt popsicles here.
This recipe makes 10 popsicles. All you need are popsicle molds (found at most places like Walmart and such) and popsicle sticks! I like the texture of both chopped strawberries and pureed in this recipe, so I used both. I placed my strawberries in the blender with the lemon juice and pureed.
3 (5 oz) containers of vanilla flavored Greek yogurt (I used Oikos single serve)
½ cup chopped strawberries
½ cup of pureed strawberries (about 1 cup of strawberries zipped through the blender until smooth…you can use your lemon juice in the blender with it)
3 tablespoons lemon juice (puree with strawberries) and 2 tablespoons lemon zest (one lemon should get you enough)
10 wooden popsicle sticks
Popsicle molds should be at room temperature before assembling. Spray down inside each mold with non-stick cooking spray. Set aside.
In a mixing bowl, combine Greek yogurt and chopped strawberries with a spoon. Stir in your pureed strawberries and lemon zest. Pour mixture into the molds leaving an inch on top.
Pop molds into freezer and freeze for one hour. After one hour, place the wooden sticks inside each mold. Continue to freeze at least 7 hours before removing.
When you’re ready to serve, run your sink until the water is very hot. Holding the mold, place the bottom portion under your hot water for about 20 to 30 seconds. After that, you should be able to grab the sticks and easily remove each popsicle. If they’re not coming out easily, run the bottom of the mold under hot water a few seconds more.
Remove, serve and enjoy.
A little strawberry, a little lemon and a whole lot of goodness. Enjoy!
