Well, THAT was Easy Enough…

When I told my kids we were going to make our own homemade popsicles, they were skeptical. When I told them they would taste even better than store bought ones, they just couldn’t imagine it. How in the world?? Well, I’ll tell you “how in the world”…

I gathered the 3, ok, maybe 4 things we needed and we got to work. Everyone helped. And when they were all finished and the final product was revealed…my 6 yr old exclaimed, “Well, THAT was easy enough!”

So I guess what I’m trying to say is, get your little luvies involved and whip up a batch of pops together…it’s simple and healthful and yummy. And you can try all different kinds of combinations…no need to stick with strawberries and cream! In fact, tonight we are making “rootbeer float pops!” If it sounds yummy to you, and it will freeze, then try it!!

But for now, here is the simple recipe for strawberries and cream ice pops…

Start with a pint of ripe strawberries in your food processor…
Whip them up into a smooth puree… and make sure to take time for the “little bloggers” in your life!
Once you have a smooth puree, pour the strawberries into a large mixing bowl…
Pour in 250g or a healthy sized cup of vanilla greek style yogurt…

Give all the kidlets a chance to stir…
…until it’s all mixed up into a pretty pink colour.
Now to make the creamy swirl! Slowly and carefully fold in a cup of already whipped cream…
Do not overmix on this stage or you won’t have a swirly popsicle.  Just a few stirs will do.
Pour them into your popsicle moulds…if you don’t have any, use a paper/plastic cup and a popsicle stick.
When they are all filled and ready, pop them into your freezer for 3-4hrs…
When they are frozen, run hot water on the outside of the mould so the lids will easily slide off…
Now, enjoy!!
That was easy enough!!
Thanks for stopping by! Have a great Father’s Day!

  1. What do you mean “already whipped cream”? Are you talking about the frozen whipped cream stuff that comes in a white and blue tub? Or a heavy whipping cream? Or are we supposed to whip up some cream (if so, how?)?
