HOMEMADE STRAWBERRY YOGURT POPSICLES

Just 5 ingredients and no refined sugar make these simple strawberry yogurt popsicles a healthy snack for kids. Greek yogurt packs this recipe with protein!

Hey guys! It’s Manali  from Cook With Manali sharing with you some homemade Strawberry Yogurt Popsicles today! The days are getting longer and warmer and I am really happy about it. As a food blogger, nothing gives me more happiness than to have some extra hours for clicking pictures. Seriously it’s such a relief! What is also making me happy is the fact that popsicle season would be soon upon us, or in fact I should say that it’s already here and that’s why I am sharing this recipe for Strawberry Yogurt Popsicles with you guys today!

Popsicles are one of my favorite treats to make during spring and summers. If you ask me, nothing beats a refreshing fruity popsicle when it gets hot. I become this crazy popsicle lady as soon as the temperatures begin to soar. So many flavor combinations to try and so little time! You can get really creative with popsicles and they are also a lot of fun. Peanut butter & chocolate, coconut & mango – the combinations are endless. The coconut peanut butter and chocolate popsicles were my favorite from last year! These are also a great way to make your kids eat some fruits. I am sure no kid would say no to such a frozen treat. When you make popsicles at home, you know what you are adding in so it just makes them a whole lot better than the store bought stuff.

The other day while doing grocery, I spotted some really pretty strawberries. I have this problem. I cannot resist pretty looking strawberries! Even if I already have a box lying in my refrigerator, I would buy one more just because they looked too pretty to let go. Just me?

Anyway so I bought this huge box and made these strawberry yogurt popsicles. It’s so easy to make these – puree the berries with some sweetener. Mix the yogurt with the same sweetener and then pour the liquid alternately into the mold and freeze until set. You only need 15 minutes to make these!

You can either combine the strawberry and yogurt mixture together and then freeze it or make layers like I did. I just think the layers look prettier but if that looks like a lot of work to you, simply combine everything together and freeze. I hope you guys enjoy these refreshing strawberry yogurt popsicles this spring and summer!

I have used maple syrup in this recipe, you may use honey or any sweetener of your choice.

INGREDIENTS
10 ounces strawberries [around 2 cups]
4 tablespoons maple syrup, divided
3/4 teaspoon lemon juice
1 cup greek yogurt
1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract

PREPARATION
1. To a food processor add strawberries, 3 tablespoons maple syrup, lemon juice and mix till you get a smooth puree.

2. In a bowl, whisk together greek yogurt with 1 tablespoon maple syrup and vanilla extract.

3. Fill each popsicle mold with 2-3 teaspoons of the strawberry puree. [To bring in a little change, you can also fill some of the popsicles with the greek yogurt mixture first.]

4. Then place 1-2 tablespoons of the greek yogurt mixture on top. And finally again add few teaspoons the strawberry puree till your mold is full.

5. Place the popsicle mold in the freezer. After 2 hours, when it's slightly set, take it out of the freezer and insert the stick into the center. This way the sticks stay in place.

6. Freezer overnight or till completely frozen.

7. To take them out, place the mold in warm water for 15-20 seconds and then pull gently, the popsicles would come out easily.

8. Enjoy the strawberry yogurt popsicles!




CHOCOLATE DIPPED COCONUT PEANUT BUTTER POPSICLES

And another one! I hope you guys aren’t getting bored of my popsicle recipes? Okay, I promise this is the last one, for a while! And I saved the best for the last, YES! Maybe I am biased because there’s Peanut Butter involved but guys these peanut butter popsicles are so good! I was actually playing around with flavors and I had no idea that it would turn out so good. Coconut + Mighty Maple Peanut Butter + Chocolate = Best treat ever!

You know my obsession with peanut butter, I can never have enough of it. Whether it’s adding it to my homemade granola or homemade ice cream, I am always looking for ways to include peanut butter in my recipes. I have even made burgers and parathas out of it! Well yes I told you, I am obsessed with the stuff. And today I added it to these popsicles and it can’t get better than this.

10 minutes is all that it takes to make these popsicles. I could have left them as such (because they were pretty good that way too) BUT I had to dip them in chocolate. Peanut butter and chocolate is a match made in heaven, I am sure you guys agree with me on that? And so it was bound to happen. As soon as the popsicles were out of the mold, it’s like they were begging to be dipped in some yummy chocolate. Plus chocolate makes everything perfect <3I used candiquik here but you can use any candy melting chocolate of your choice. I also love ghirardelli melting wafers. The good thing with candy melts is that they dry so quickly and that’s exactly what you need for this popsicle.

Method
To a pan on medium heat, add coconut milk and then might maple peanut butter.Add maple syrup, adjust to taste.Stir till peanut butter dissolves completely and mixture is nice and smooth, around 2-3 minutes. Remove the pan from heat and set aside.

Pour the prepared liquid into popsicle molds of your choice. Put in the freezer, after 2 hours when the popsicles are semi-set, insert the sticks and then let it freezer overnight.Once the popsicles are frozen, take them out of the popsicle mold by running them under warm water for 30 seconds. Melt candy melt (I used candiquik) and dip the popsicle in it. Make sure chocolate isn’t super hot when you dip the popsicle in it else it might melt the popsicle.Garnish with chopped nuts immediately. Wait for few seconds, the chocolate will harden almost immediately. Place the popsicle in the freezer again for 15-20 minutes. 

Enjoy these coconut peanut butter popsicles! so good!

* I used chopped peanuts and pecans, which I got from the grocery store. You can use any nut of your choice or skip the nuts if you don’t like them.* Use high quality candy melting chocolate to dip in the popsicle. I recommend Candiquik and Ghirardelli Melting Wafers.* The preparation time is only 10 minutes. The total time indicated below includes the time the popsicles are in the freezer.
