3 ingredient Creamy Strawberry Pops6:00:00 AM
Ya'll. It's going to be in the 90's this week here. I am not ready for this. These days, I really love spring and the mild weather. But with hotter weather approaching, it's a good idea to have loads of popsicles in the freezer to keep folks cool. And I love making popsicles - most of the time the ingredients are very few, the prep is easy (although you do need to plan ahead), and it's pretty healthy if you put fruit in! My kids will accept fruit as dessert on occasion, but they will rebel if I do it too much. That's why making fruit based ice pops are a win-win for both mommy and kids. These Creamy Strawberry Pops add in yogurt and gets some calcium in the mix, which makes it even better.
I do have to add a super secret ingredient into the mix. There are some spices that just add a little depth of flavor that you just can't put your finger on. Adding my secret ingredient will take these popsicles to the next level.
Are you ready for that ingredient?
It's allspice. Just a little bit gives a little depth of flavor to the sweet fruitiness.
Here's how you make these popsicles:
Around 8 oz of strawberries, pureed (approximately 1 cup of puree)
1 1/2 cup low fat vanilla yogurt
1/8 – 1/4 teaspoon allspice
Place the pureed strawberries in a bowl. Fold in the yogurt and the allspice. Pour into popsicle molds and freeze overnight. This recipe made 6 popsicles.
