How To Make Homemade Yogurt Popsicles

Strawberry Yogurt Popsicle Recipe



We all love a cold treat in the hot summer months. This creamy, delicious popsicle layered with fresh fruit and vanilla yogurt is sure to be a refreshing treat this summer. Popsicles are a go-to, especially for kids so why not go for a healthier more nutritious option. Yogurt is an excellent source of calcium, protein, and probiotics. Now add strawberries that are packed with vitamins, and antioxidants and you have a naturally sweet treat. Yogurt popsicles are versatile, you can use any flavor of yogurt you like or have on hand.



What do I need to make yogurt popsicles? I love this answer because it's so simple! Vanilla yogurt, strawberries, or blueberries. A popsicle mold, or cupcake/muffin pan, and popsicle sticks if you're using a cupcake/muffin pan. I will link inexpensive popsicle molds below.



Instructions

I had six popsicle molds and used about two cups of yogurt and one cup of fruit.

There is no right or wrong way to do this, you can use any fruit you have on hand. Blueberries and blackberries are delicious as well. I used a potato masher to puree the fruit leaving some chunks of berries. Then layered the vanilla yogurt and berries leaving space at the top of the mold so it didn't overflow when I put the stick in. Freeze for 4-6 hours. Run the mold under warm water for a few seconds before removing the popsicle.



Cupcake/muffin pan instructions Use a cupcake/muffin pan the same way by layering the yogurt and berries. The popsicle stick may not stand up when the yogurt isn't frozen yet. If that's the case let the yogurt freeze for an hour and then place the stick in the yogurt.


TIP If your muffin cupcake/muffin pan isn't non-stick coat a very thin layer of oil on the pan before adding your yogurt and berries.


How to clean strawberries? An effective, all-natural way to clean strawberries is with a vinegar bath. In a bowl mix, 4 parts water, and 1 part vinegar. Soak the strawberries for 5 minutes. Rinse thoroughly and let the berries dry on a tea towel or paper towel. The vinegar will help get rid of mold spores and bacteria. Strawberries are porous with thin skin so they soak up moisture easily.



How do you keep strawberries fresh? The short answer, strawberries don't stay fresh long. A vinegar bath will help berries stay fresh a little longer. Clean and dry the berries, then place a paper towel on the bottom of the container you are storing the berries in and place them in the fridge. The paper towel will absorb any moisture and help to prevent mold. I hope you enjoy the simplicity of these delicious yogurt popsicle. Thank You for stopping by Lia Rose Simply Home!
