PEACH STRAWBERRY YOGURT POPSICLES
Start to finish: 6 hours (10 minutes active)
3 cups strawberries
3 cups peaches peeled and sliced
2 tablespoons honey divided
2/3 cup vanilla greek yogurt
In a blender, puree strawberries with four teaspoons honey then set aside. Clean blender, puree sliced peaches with two teaspoons honey, set aside.
Layer the popsicles as follows: 2 teaspoons strawberry puree, one teaspoon yogurt, two teaspoons mango puree and repeat. Make a fruit puree your last layer.
Tap the mold on the counter to make sure all of the layers settle. Use a small spoon to drag vertically from the bottom to the top of the mold a few times to create a swirled pattern.
Gently tap the molds on a hard surface to remove any air bubbles.
Insert the popsicle sticks, and then freeze for at least 6 hours.
Each recipe makes approximately 10 popsicles, depending on the size and shape of your molds. Adjust batch sizes accordingly.
