The humidity is rising. Sun-kissed cheeks, glistening skin warmed by the sun, and active children celebrating the birth of summer. Relief comes with garden hoses, lemonade, and popsicles. And after the cooling respite they run back outside for more.
Here is an easy recipe for
Strawberries and Cream Popsicles:
1/2 lb. of fresh strawberries, chopped
1 cup of plain yogurt
1/2 cup of 2% or whole milk
1 TBSP Maple syrup
1 tsp vanilla
Mix all ingredients together and pour into popsicle molds. Place in freezer for about 3 hours. Yields about 10 medium-sized popsicles.
You can also make Orangesicles substituting orange juice for the milk and omitting the strawberries.
