Fresh Strawberry Mint Yogurt Popsicles

How is your week going? I’ve been up, down, and in-between; yet the list of things to do never seems to get smaller. I’ve been experimenting in the kitchen; however, a lot of the recipes have not been working out. Oh well, back to the drawing board!

Anyway, I’ve been eating a ton of strawberries. During the summer time,the seasonal berries look so plump and fresh! They have a wonderful natural sweetness and juiciness that is so satisfying to snack on.

It’s not quite berry picking season at our local farms yet, so to the grocery store I go for my strawberry fix. This week there was an excellent selection. They had a bunch of beautiful, vibrant red organic strawberries that I just had to pick up.

A recipe that works out fabulously with these delicious berries is Strawberry Mint Yogurt Popsicles! Making homemade popsicles is so easy and you get to control what ingredients to use. A lot of store bought popsicles are loaded with artificial flavours and colours and high-fructose corn syrup that’s often tasty, but not so good for you.

For this recipe, I slice up the strawberries and fresh mint, mash it together with some sugar, fold in some yogurt, scoop it into popsicle molds, freeze, and voila, a super yummy dessert! You don’t even need to use a blender or food processor, so less cleanup!

I love the light pink colour,the fresh strawberry pieces, and tiny flecks of mint in this popsicle! The sweet strawberries will be the predominant flavour while the fresh mint will be mild.

Greek yogurt is great for the protein and probiotics. The mild tangy flavour contrasts well with the sweet strawberries and the smooth, thick consistency of the yogurt allows the popsicle to maintain a creamy texture. I like to use plain, 0% fat yogurt; keeping not only the fat content low, but also allowing the star ingredient to shine.

Now for the sugar. I do use good ol’ regular white sugar, but you can definitely use whatever sweetener you want such as honey, maple syrup, or agave.

Scott grows mint in his Aerogarden, so I decided to add it to these popsicles since it goes so well with strawberries and adds another fresh, aromatic element. Besides, Scott and I need to find another reason to use the mint instead of putting it in our Moscow Mules all the time.

Ingredients

  • 1 lb. fresh strawberries, hulled and sliced

  • If you prefer a more smooth texture, puree the ingredients in a blender or food processor before freezing in the popsicle molds.

    • You should! It is so inexpensive and homemade popsicles (especially this one 😉 ) are so easy to make and so tasty!

  • Ahhhh so exciting! I ordered a popsicle mold and I’m sooo excited to use it! Definitely will be making this one! It looks FANTASTIC. I have strawberry mint in the garden too! (It’s mint but smells like strawberries when you pick it (and eat it) weird eh?) I managed to almost kill it (who the heck can kill mint right?) but it came back alive! I will be testing it with that! 😀
    ps. Hang in there on your ups and downs – I’m right there with ya sista with the recipe testing flops so I know the feeling! 🙂

    • Strawberry mint that smells like mint?! That’s so cool! I remember going to the garden centre and seeing some interesting mint variants, but I don’t remember the strawberry mint kind! I pretty much kill all my plants (or close to it) so I know the feeling!

  • I love the strawberry mint combo and I know my kids would like these. I love how healthy they are!
