Strawberry Popsicles~2 Ways


My girls spent the weekend with their Mimi and Dandad playing, eating, shopping, and watching movies.  I missed them so much and couldn't wait for them to come back home.  I decided to make them a special frozen treat to enjoy while we played in the backyard on Sunday afternoon.  I bought some popsicle molds from Wal-Mart last week so we can make popsicles all summer.

I made two kinds of popsicles:  Strawberry/Pink Lemonade and Strawberry/Vanilla Yogurt.  The flavor combinations are endless.  All you need is some fresh fruit, fruit juice, yogurts, and flavored extracts.

Strawberry/Pink Lemonade Popsicles:

1 cup strawberries, hulled
1/2 cup prepared pink lemonade
Splenda to sweeten, if needed

Strawberry/Vanilla Yogurt Popsicles:

1 cup strawberries, hulled
1/2 cup Dannon light 'n fit vanilla yogurt
1 tsp pure vanilla extract
Splenda to sweeten, if needed

In a blender, add all ingredients for desired popsicle.  Blend until well combined.  Pour into popsicle molds and freeze, about 4 hours.  Run bottoms of popsicle molds under warm water to help release.  Enjoy!

These were the adult margarita bites I made from Mommy's Kitchen.
