Strawberry Popsicles For Spring Break

Written By Srimathi Mani on Friday, April 9, 2010 | 4:31 PM

This week schools are out in our area for Spring break. Today my daughter and I decided to make some home made popsicals. We made our own version of popsicles inspired by the recipe we found in the "Kids" cook book sold at Ikea. As usual we had to get creative and make our version of the recipe. It took us a solid 45 minutes reading through the recipe, deciding on what we wanted to use, gathering the ingredients, cleaning them and preparing and storing. It was a very fun morning for us with all the spills and clean ups and tasting. 

These days making a snack or treat at home has become very common. It all began because I have become an ingredients cop.I found that I have been buying snacks without looking at the labels and feeding my daughter all the unhealthy, very addictive snacks. What shocked me was to find high fructose corn syrup added to most products. This allows your waist line to grow very fast without you being aware of it. I felt that if she wanted something sweet it was better to prepare something with sugar at home than eat the store bought products. That was what our grandma's and mother's did. Making a snack a week with her, teachers her a lot of things. Even as a kid they do know what is good for them and they are so excited to cook if we are ready to take the time to spend with them.





Gadgets:

Blender
Cutting Board
Knife
Measuring Cups and Spoons
Popsicle Container or better any container you have
Popsicle sticks.

Ingredients: Makes 8 popsicles


Strawberry - 3 cups (hulled and sliced)
Blueberry - 1/2 cup
Banana - 1 ripe sliced
Lemon Juice - 4 tsp
Yogurt - 8 tbsp heaped
Sugar - 8 tbsp


Preparation:
1. Add the ingredients to the blender and blend until smooth.
2. Transfer to popsicle mold, (we used all sorts of cups that we found) and put it in the freezer over night or if you are impatient like us for 6 hrs or until it sets.
3. To treat yourself to one of these popsicles just keep it out for a few minutes or wash them in hot water and try to move it out of this mold.

  20. Hello,

    We are writing a popsicle recipe book, and would love to use the photo of the blended strawberries being poured into the popsicle molds. We would, of course, give you full credit. What do you say?

    Looking forward to your response,

    Keith & Milena
