A must try “Strawberry Creamsicles“….since the day I saw them on the internet I’ve been wanting to make them, once you take a glance at the recipe you will too!
Greek yogurt (choose your own flavor)
Rinse strawberries well and cut the greens off them. Blend the amount you need for the number of popsicles you are making. If your blender is not powerful you may need to add a splash of water or juice. Spoon some of the strawberry puree into the bottom of the mold, and then alternate with yogurt and puree until the mold is full. If you don’t want the layers, you can mix the yogurt and puree together and add to the mold. Put the handle in and freeze for approximately 2 hours.
These lovely homemade treats are not only mouth watering but they are delicious too! They also provide lots of nutrition. Strawberries provide vitamins, minerals and are part of your daily fruit servings. Greek yogurt serves as a dairy product with a source of protein and calcium. With this week’s hot and humid weather, it’s the perfect way to enjoy a healthy and refreshing treat!
