The one with the strawberry popsicles



I bumped into some super cute pink popsicles molds last week. Immediately childhood memories of warm summer nights, playing in the streets, enjoying sweet cold treats came to mind. I needed to get them, and made some popsicles the same evening. As a kid, we filled the molds with sweeter than sweet lemonade. These are a more adult-y and healthier version.


What you'll need:

  • popsicles molds (mine makes 6 popsicles, but the mixture could make about 10)
  • 400 grams of strawberries
  • a big cup of greek yoghurt
  • 5 big tablespoons of honey, or to taste 


Wash the strawberries and remove the leafy tops

Puree the strawberries in your blender, and add the yoghurt and honey. Taste and add more honey if you don't think it's sweet enough. The strawberries I bought were pretty sweet, so five teaspoons of honey was enough for me. 

Fill the molds with the mixture



I left them in the freezer over night


Enjoy!

 
I got these molds at Dutch store HEMA. They're € 1,50 and easy to use. After taking them out of the fridge, the popsicles were pretty easy to remove from the molds. 

Do you like making your own popsicles? I've got one of them left, so I am in need of some ideas for making a new batch. What's your favourite recipe? Any flavour combinations I should try?

  1. Mmmmm...they look tasty! And I love the pink mold :)
    I like how you were able to use honey instead of sugar to sweeten them...and keep them healthy.

  2. These look so good! I haven't made popsicles in a really long time. We would always mix different fruit juices to try to come up with our own concoction. :)

  8. Hi Marieken!

    I may not be the biggest fan of strawberries but I will not deny the fact that the popsicles look so tempting and yummy. Your photos are also great. The sharp and colorful explosion of shades make them worthy of a magazine spread. And I hope you will be really featured in a prestigious magazine.

    Wishing you a great week ahead!

    1. Thanks for your kind words Diane! I think that it would work with other fruits too, if you're not a fan of strawberries.

  12. I don't know why your posts never show up in my blog reader--it makes me crazy! Your popsicles look lovely--so refreshing and how nice that they're pretty healthy, too! I think experimenting with a not-so-sweet lemon version or lime would be great. And how about boozy ones--margaritas or pina colados?!

    1. Your post don't appear most of the time on mine too, maybe it's a blogger vs wordpress kind of thing?

  14. Looks tasty! I found some inexpensive popsicle molds a couple of years ago and definitely put them to use in the summer. Like you, I like to make a "thicker" mix with yogurt. The last time I made popsicles, though, I cut up some strawberries and then froze them in a mango juice. They were delicious!
