popsicles of love

there's nothing like a frozen treat on a warm day. sitting out under our favorite tree there was a warm breeze. the birds were all a'twitter. and in a (rare) quiet moment i whispered, "who wants a POPsicle?" of course the boy immediately yelped, "MEEEEEE!" and the girl, not knowing what a popsicle is or why one would want one, joined in because if big brother wants it then it must be good.

we enjoyed these strawberry-lemon yogurt pops immensely. lots of giggles. lots of "mmmmmm!"

a perfect moment.

until. . .

the pop was gone. and she could NOT understand why she could not have more. so hard to explain to a little one that concept of "all gone!" mommy's not deliberately holding out on you. you ate the whole thing!

here is my process. . .if you can call it that. i do everything by taste when it comes to pops.

ingredients - strawberries, sugar, lemon, yogurt

:: yogurt in a sieve lined with cheese cloth. let it sit in the fridge overnight.
:: put some berries in a blender with some sugar. use the sugar sparingly, you can always add

more. blend it up and give a taste. add some more sugar if needed.
:: pour in a bowl. add lemon juice to taste

:: add the drained yogurt and stir it up. (you can use as much or as little as you want. some like a real creamy pop, some like it more fruity)
:: pour into pop mold and freeze overnight

O.k. this is too funny : ) I just wrote a post that I have saved in draft form about making popsicles! And when I saw your pictures of the pops they look just the same as mine lol!! I made mine from a strawberry smoothie! I think we are on the same wave length here!

I like the love in the popsciles! Really goooooood.

Where did you get those nice pop holders for the freezer?

To help with blood sugar not changing so much could one add sucanat?

What if you just froze the blended strawberries. would that be sherbet?
