This recipe is the last of many popsicle recipes we have tried this summer. They are all so good it is hard to pick a favorite. I found the idea for this strawberry shortcake popsicle on the Bakers Royale web site. They are very easy to make.
If you like strawberry shortcake and frozen yogurt, then you will love these yogurt pops. To prepare them you will need:
- Lowfat Vanilla Yogurt
- Nilla Wafers
- Disposable paper cups or popsicle molds
- Popsicle sticks
You can prepare these frozen yogurt pops in Dixie cups or popsicle molds. The Prepared Pantry sells a great popsicle mold that you can use over and over again. For these popsicles I used some inexpensive molds I found at Walmart.
First crush the Nilla Wafers by placing them in a ziploc bag and rolling over them with a rolling pin.
I haven't specified measurements for this recipe because it depends on how many popsicles you want to make. I started out with a handful of strawberries, a handful of Nilla Wafers, and a cup of lowfat vanilla yogurt. You can always make more if you run out.
Stir the Nilla Wafer crumbs into the vanilla yogurt and set aside.
Puree the strawberries in a blender or food processor. You can add sugar if you like, but it is not necessary.
For each popsicle, pour a layer of vanilla yogurt and Nilla Wafer mixture into the bottom of each popsicle mold. Place in the freezer for 30 minutes.
Add a layer of pureed strawberries. I didn't find it necessary to freeze this layer before adding the last layer, so I then immediately added the final layer of vanilla yogurt.
Place the popsicle sticks in each mold and put in the freezer for a couple of hours until completely frozen.
To serve, peel away the Dixie cup or run the popsicle mold under warm water until the popsicle easily slides out of the mold.
These popsicles are really, really good. My kids loved them. And I don't feel guilty for letting them eat them because they are healthy!
