Strawberry Frozen Yogurt Popsicles

Strawberry Frozen Yogurt Popsicles

These refreshing snacks provide all the nutrients of a smoothie, but in a solid lickable form. If your Popsicle mold doesn't come with individual handles, freeze the mixture until partially set, insert a wooden stick into each mold, and then freeze until solid. You can also use small paper cups if you don't have a Popsicle mold.

Adding corn syrup helps prevent ice crystals from forming, keeping the texture of the Popsicles smooth.

Makes 4 servings

Prep Time: 15 minutes or less
Total Time: 15 minutes or less plus 3 or more hours freezing

Ingredients

  • 1 cup strawberry or other flavored low-fat yogurt
  • 1 1/2 cups (about 12) fresh or frozen strawberries, hulled if fresh, or other fruit, divided
  • 1 Tbsp light corn syrup
  • 1 tsp fresh lemon juice

Instructions

  1. In a food processor, combine the yogurt, 1 cup of the strawberries, corn syrup, and lemon juice and process until smooth. Add the remaining 1/2 cup berries and pulse until fruit is mostly puréed but some small pieces of fruit remain. Pour into four (1/2-cup) Popsicle molds and insert tops. Freeze until solid, at least 3 hours.
  2. To remove the pops from the molds, run the outside of the mold under hot water. The ice pop should loosen and pull out.
