This past weekend was a hot one! I found myself browsing recipes to try to find something that I could make to beat the heat. As usual I find many a recipe over at The Slow Roasted Italian. This was no exception, as I found just the recipe I needed. You can see their recipe here. I changed nothing about it, that is how good it is!
- 2 pounds ripe strawberries, washed and hulled
- 3 tablespoons sugar, divided
- 2 tablespoons lemon juice
- 3 medium ripe bananas, mashed
- 1 cup non-fat plain yogurt
- 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
Combine strawberries, 2 tablespoons sugar and lemon juice in a food processor and blend until smooth.
Divide half of the strawberry mixture in your popsicle molds and set it aside.
In a small bowl combine bananas, yogurt, 1 tablespoon sugar and vanilla and stir to combine.
Add banana mixture on top of the strawberry mixture in the popsicles molds, filling them about 2/3 full.
Pour remaining strawberry mixture on top. Freeze 4-24 hours until completely frozen.
Don’t have a Popsicle mold? Use an ice-cube tray, younger kids love to eat them this way too. Place a layer of plastic wrap over the top and insert toothpicks or popsicle sticks to keep in place while freezing. ENJOY your summer!
