Strawberry Yogurt Popsicles #SundaySupper

As a mom, I am constantly looking for new activities to explore with my children. I find it really important for the children to experience everything and anything positive that I can give them. When I was a child, I would visit my father and we would always go somewhere. It didn’t matter where, but there was always something to do. I enjoyed experiencing life and seeing what was new, what I could touch, what I could eat, what I was going to do. I feel ten times luckiER (just roll with me…) because I can stay home and do these activities daily with my own children. Last week was no different. We did a lot of fun things like hiking, play kitchen in the library, made “car garages” in the beach sand, plant tomatoes and my favorite, picked strawberries. We have only picked apples last fall, but now we have officially picked strawberries! You would not believe the amount of strawberries we picked even if I told you! This is how our strawberry yogurt popsicles came about, de-lic-ious!

The children had a blast picking the strawberries. They would look at them and say, “Mom, all red!” My two year old daughter carried this large bucket and would not put it down. Everyone threw their strawberries in and no matter how heavy it became, she still pulled it with all her might. My four year old son was happy to pick out the ripe strawberries and place them in the bucket. Although the wind was in high gear and we all had cold red noses, it was a fantastic experience. I’m really looking forward to doing it again.

I have to be honest, I was a little overwhelmed of how I was going to use all those strawberries, but somehow we managed to eat them all!! Strawberry smoothies, chocolate covered strawberries and even strawberry ricotta desserts seemed to go quickly in our household. I thought for sure I was going to freeze some but no, they are gone.

I love this recipe because it’s perfect for summer. It’s refreshing and delicious and the best part, my children gobble them up. Yes, my husband is totally in that equation too! They are simple, healthy and easy. Next round, I would love to add some freshly torn basil leaves or mix it up with a banana or perhaps blueberries. Really, the options are endless.

On a side now: I added one tablespoon of honey but I feel that it could have been slightly more sweetened. Next time, I’m adding two tablespoons. My children didn’t seem to notice…but that’s the sweet-addict in me.

    I’m sooo buying a popsicle maker! And yes, while I don’t have kids, my man (the biggest kid of all) would likely love these too! ;-) Thanks for the fun post and recipe!
