Ingredients

  • 2 cups 16 oz Greek yogurt
  • 4 tablespoons sugar
  • 1 vanilla bean split and scraped, pod reserved for another use, or 1/4 teaspoon pure vanilla extract

For the Strawberry Puree:

  • 12 ounces strawberries approx 3 cups or use raspberries, peaches or blueberries
  • 2 tablespoons sugar
  • 1 tablespoon Chambord optional

For the Limeade (optional; I thought a third layer with my taller popsicle forms would be fun):

  • 1 ½ cups water
  • ½ cup granulated sugar
  • ½ cup lime juice
  • 1 tsp lime zest

Instructions

  • If doing the limeade layer, make a simple syrup; combining the sugar, water and zest and heating just until the water starts to simmer; the sugar should be dissolved. Remove from heat and strain out the zest. Add the lime juice and allow to chill in freezer while preparing the other ingredients.
  • Mix the yogurt with the sugar and the vanilla.
  • Puree the strawberries and sugar in a food processor or blender. Stir in Chambord if using.
  • Layer the popsicles with your ingredients. I found it worked best to use a little funnel to keep the various ingredients from being dripped all over the inside of the popsicle form.
  • Freeze for approximately four hours
  • I wanted to mix up the order of the layers in the popsicles but with the lime juice layer being so liquid it would have meant freezing each layer separately; I didn't want to do that so it went in the molds last.

Notes

Jo-Anna mentioned that these pops were best after they had sat out for about 5 minutes once out of the freezer. Mine needed that time to soften up enough to remove them from the forms. It was warm here; I certainly enjoyed slurping these at the end of the day. Think of all the flavor combinations you can use...I know I will!
