You know what's really, really hard to photograph?
Aye yi yi. All you bloggers who take beautiful pictures of rapidly melting food objects are my heros. It's no joke!
So please, disregard my pathetic pictures and melting popsicles and focus on a super delicious, healthy and pretty popsicles.
Just so you can see that they were, in fact, pretty at one time - here's a quick pic I snapped before trying one for the first time. It's just my iPhone camera, but look how pretty!
This recipe comes from The Nourishta (oddly, while writing this blog I was unable to access her blog - not sure what's happened)
- 1 pint of strawberries, washed
- 1 pint of blueberries, washed
- honey to taste
- approximately 1 1/2 c. plain greek yogurt
- popsicle molds
Puree the first layer - strawberries with honey as sweetener - and fill molds about 1/3 full. Put this in the freezer for one hour. When you take them out, add the popsicle sticks and freeze for another hour.
Then mix plain yogurt with honey to taste. I also added some vanilla bean for added flavor and pretty factor. Fill molds another 1/3 full and freeze for 2 hours.
Finally, puree blueberries with honey to taste and fill the rest of the popsicle molds. I froze mine overnight, but probably another hour or so and they would be fine to eat!
Run molds under warm water to loosen. ENJOY.
I actually gave one of these to my toddler for breakfast this morning. HA. I figured it was fruit, honey and yogurt - who cares if it's in frozen form, right?
I love the freshness of the fruit in this popsicle - and the addition of greek yogurt gives it a little richness.
These were (truthfully) kind of a pain in the butt, but they really are delicious. Being the insane person that I am, I would definitely make them again.
What's your favorite popsicle recipe? I can't wait to give my new popsicle mold a great workout this summer!
