A warm welcome to me blog and my very first post today.
I wanted the first post on my blog to be something sweet.
I was planning to share with you my favorite Pecan Pie but then I thought since it’s summer and my favorite Popsicle is also sweet – so why not – Strawberry Popsicle.
The best thing about this recipe is that it’s simple, easy and quick. I make one batch of Popsicle’s very week in summer. They are so delicious, kids as well as grown ups will be addicted to them. Best of all… you can choose how rich or simple you want them to be.
Here’s what you’ll need..
1 packet of Strawberry Jello
2 cups chopped fresh or frozen strawberries
2 tbsp of sugar (more if you need it sweeter)
1 cup boiling water
200 ml – plain yogurt or Vanilla ice cream
Place the chopped strawberries in a bowl.
Add the sugar to the strawberries.
Place the strawberry jello into a cup and pour the boiling water over.
Stir to dissolve all the contents.
Next, pour the hot jelly mixture over the strawberry mixture.
Use a hand blender or a mixer to blend the strawberries to a smooth puree.
You have three variations at this point:
- Keep it plain and simple.OR
- Add plain yogurt to the mixture and stir OR
- Add Vanilla ice cream to the mixture and stir.
I’m keeping half this mixture plain – so here you see I filled 6 Popsicle molds with the above mixture.
The the other half I am adding half the above measure of plain sweetened yogurt. I like mine a tad sweeter.
Taste the mixture to check for sweetness.
Here you can see I have six plain strawberry popsicles and six strawberry yogurt popsicles.
Place the covers and freeze until set.
And Voila both the Popsicle frozen and ready to eat.
This is my favorite .. Strawberry Yogurt Popsicle…. Yummy..
I do hope you try these. Look forward to sharing more delicious dishes with you every week.
Thanks for stopping by
