Servings: 5 servings
- 1 pint (2 cups) fresh strawberries, stemmed and halved
- 3/4 cup vanilla Greek yogurt
- 1/2 cup whole milk
- 2 Tablespoons honey
- 1 teaspoon fresh lemon juice
- 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
- Popsicle molds
Preheat oven to 400°F.
Line a rimmed baking sheet with non-stick aluminum foil. Place the strawberries onto the baking sheet; roast for 25 minutes, stirring half way.
Allow the strawberries to cool for 10 minutes. Place in blender; pulse 2 to 3 times, or enough so the strawberries become puréed but some chunks remain.
In a medium bowl, whisk together remaining ingredients yogurt, milk, honey, lemon juice and vanilla extract.
Place 1 Tablespoon of strawberry purée into the popsicle mold. Fill the mold half-way up with the cream mixture. Add 1 teaspoon of the strawberry purée. Fill mold to the top with the cream mixture.
Using a knife, make several swirls through the purée/cream mixture. Fit with popsicle stick. Repeat with remaining molds.
Freeze for at least 4 hours, preferably overnight.
Yield: 5 (3-ounce) popsicles.
