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!




TROPICAL PUNCH POPSICLES

Can you believe we are in July already! Where did the time go? and before we even realize it would be Christmas. Didn’t we just celebrate Christmas? Seriously time is flying way too fast. What did you guys do over the long weekend? We went to a BBQ party and I made paneer tikka [recipe coming soon!] and then we also did some grilling at home. We got this really cute small grill and we grilled some corn and ate it the Indian way with some chat masala , chili powder and lemon, ahh bliss!It’s also getting super hot in Seattle. This is the hottest summer since I have been living here. Temperatures were around 100 F during this long weekend! And because it’s so hot I thought it would be fun to share some easy popsicle/ice cream recipes with you guys this week. After all who doesn’t want frozen treats when sun is shining so bright outside?

The 1st recipe that I am sharing with you today is the simplest of all. I call it tropical punch popsicles. It’s basically frozen pineapple juice with little coconut extract and some fresh fruits. Guys, it can’t get easier than this! These popsicles are so refreshing, like I came home after being in the sun for 3 hours and as soon as I ate one of these popsicles and I felt all recharged and refreshed again.You can actually use any fruit juice here like orange, watermelon and even lemonade would work great. I wanted tropical flavors and so I used pineapple juice and mixed in some coconut extract. Adjust the amount of coconut extract according to how much you love the coconut flavor. I added a little less than 1/4 teaspoon. And similary you can add any fruit you like. I used kiwi, strawberries, pineapple and blueberries. Other great options are raspberries, grapes, peaches – basically any of your favorite summer fruit.

I could seriously lick on these tropical punch popsicles all day long these days. These are the perfect, guilt-free summer treats for everyone to enjoy!

INGREDIENTS
1 cup pineapple juice
¼ teaspoon coconut extract, adjust to taste
1 kiwi, cut into thin rounds
3 strawberries, cut into slices

5-6 pineapple pieces, small

PREPARATION
1. Peel and cut the kiwi into thin circles.
2. Also slice the strawberries and set aside.
3. In a bowl take 1 cup of pineapple juice, add coconut extract to it and mix. Adjust the quantity of the extract according to how strong you want the coconut flavor. [Tip: start with ⅛ teaspoon and add more as required].
4. Take your popsicle mold and add your choice of fruits to them.
5. You can use any fruit of your choice, I used blueberries, strawberries, pineapple and kiwi.
6. Fill the popsicle molds with the prepared pineapple juice.
Cover the molds and insert the stick.
7. Freeze for 6-8 hours or till completely set.
