Can you believe it’s almost popsicle season again?! I’ll admit that I own at least three different types of popsicles molds and we make up new kinds every other day. I rarely buy them from the store because we always have something delicious in the freezer. And when they are made from mostly fruit, I have no guilt in letting the kids eat them all day long for snacks (they go well with popcorn in our opinion). I’m eating them right along with them; I love me a popsicle.
I do have to admit that I’ve been dreaming of a Zoku Popsicle Maker since last summer though. Rumor has it that this little popsicles maker can have your popsicles frozen solid in something like 7 minutes! No more waiting over night… Hey! Maybe I’ll bug them and see if they’ll send me one and let me give another one away to you guys. Would anyone else want a ninja popsicle maker?! Ooh, I’ll see what I can do!
In the mean time, you’ll have to enjoy these strawberry banana popsicles and make them the old-fashioned way in the freezer.
Popsicle lovers unite!
- 1 pound strawberries, washed and stems removed
- 1 large ripe banana
- 1/2 cup vanilla yogurt
- 1/2 cup milk
- sugar to taste, optional
- Add the strawberries, banana, milk, and yogurt to the bowl of a food processor or blender and blend until smooth. Taste and add sugar if needed, depending on the ripeness of your fruit and your taste preferences.
- Pour the liquid into popsicle molds, insert the handles, and freeze until firm, generally overnight.
- Enjoy frozen the next day!
I didn’t add any sugar to mine and the kids didn’t even mind. They weren’t really very sweet but no one complained when it came time to eat them 🙂
