Homemade popsicle is one of the healthy treat for kids, because it is made from fresh and natural ingredients without the added artificial colouring and flavoring like those selling in the stores. I was inspired by my good friend cherry yogurt popsicles and it gave me a great idea to make some for my son as he often drooling over those popsicles in the store. Making the popsicle at home gives me the freedom to choose the flavour from fresh ingredients like kiwi, strawberry, blueberry, orange & etc. This recipe is so versatile, you can make some tweaks to the recipe by choosing your favourite seasonal fruits, your favourite yogurt and honey too.
I saw some big and red strawberries from US in the grocery store and it makes a good choice for the popsicle. Moreover, strawberry is one of my son’s favourite. Thus, I made it into strawberry yogurt popsicle. Having Greek-Style yogurt in this recipe makes the popsicle creamier and tastier but unfortunately I didn’t manage to find them in the store. Well, save it for the next time and more to come. I have omitted the lemon juice as it is too sourish for our liking. By using the organic raw honey, it gives the popsicle a natural sweetness and a healthier choice compare to syrup or sugar water.
My son just couldn’t wait for the popsicles to set in the freezer and pop them into his mouth. He indeed participated in the making of this popsicles, happily pouring the puree and yogurt in the moulds and started stirring with a skewer. It was a great time spent with him and sharing the popsicles together the next day.
If you would like something cooling, fresh and melt in the mouth for this summer, make some popsicles at home and enjoy the goodness!
Make: 6 - 8 sticks (depending on your popsicle moulds)
