Someone had a great time yesterday eating delicious strawberry pops!
I love homemade Popsicle made of fresh fruits and yogurt. It is a great and healthy alternative for an ice cream, especially for kids dying for frozen treats during summer time!
So, yes, we finally have summer! June this year was not so great, chilly and rainy. July started with 30C/86F+, hot and humid, great time for making frozen treats! My daughter was so excited, she could hardly wait for the pops to freeze. When she tried one, she said they were the best ice creams she had in her entire life:)
Did you know that the first recorded ice pop was created in 1905 by 11-year-old Frank Epperson of San Francisco, who left a glass of soda water powder and water outside in his back porch with a wooden mixing stick in it?
Step1 Cut strawberries and mix them. Then you can either use them directly or you may want to strain them to remove seeds. My daughter prefers pops with no traces of seeds, so I have removed them.
Step2 Mix the strawberry puree with Greek yogurt and agave syrup. You may adjust its quantity to your taste. It also depends how sweet your strawberries are. Ours were really yummy and sweet, so I only added 2 tablespoons of agave syrup and it was perfect. Pour the preparation into Popsicle molds and attach lids with sticks. I have used these nice ice cream shaped pops molds, they turned out great.
Step3 Freeze for 6 hours or overnight before removing pops from molds. To make that step easier, run the underside of the molds under warm water for a few seconds before un-molding. Enjoy!
