We (me and my family) visited a farm 2 weeks ago for strawberry picking. (You would know about this if you had read my earlier post “Strawberry picking” :-)). I had mentioned that I will be making a post “Strawberry Yogurt Popsicles” using the freshly picked strawberries. Here is the recipe for strawberry yogurt popsicle. This recipe makes about four 120 ml popsicle bars.
Prep Time – 10 Mins + 5 Hours for freezing
Cooking Time – NONE
Strawberry – 1.5 pounds (about 30 strawberries)
Raspberry – 20 pieces
Yogurt – 150 ml
Orange/Any fruit juice (Tropical fruits) – 150 ml
Ice cream/popsicle moulds
Sugar – Optional (the strawberries I used were naturally sweet so I did not add sugar)
STEP 1: Wash and chop 10 strawberries into halves or quarters depending on the size of the strawberries. Wash the raspberries and chop 10 raspberries into half.
STEP 2: Add the remaining strawberries, raspberries, yogurt and orange juice (I have used mango, peach and orange juice mixture) to a juicer jar and make a smooth juice.
STEP 3: Prepare the popsicle mould by evenly adding the chopped strawberries and raspberries in all the moulds.
STEP 4: Now fill the mould with the juice and tap well so the juice passes through the gaps between the chopped fruits. If you still see gaps at the bottom of the mould just insert a spoon or a knife and mix gently.
STEP 5: Insert the popsicle sticks and leave it in the freezer for 5 – 6 hours.
STEP 6: De-mould the popsicles by immersing it in a cup of warm water for 30 seconds.
TIP: No preservatives, no artificial colors, homemade, healthy, tasty, fruity popsicles are ready to serve!!!
