The Bliss of Summer Pops

Who doesn't like a frozen popsicle on a hot June day? 

Especially an easy-to-make, good-for-you, YUMMY homemade one?

You can use anything you have on hand...peanut butter, blueberries, peaches, etc. Just throw your ingredients into the blender, give it a spin, and pour your sweet goodness into one of those plastic pop-makers that you can freeze. Of course, you can always improvise with paper cups and straws. 

By the way, kids can't get enough of these.  You'll be the most popular person in the house.

Our "recipe" for today was:

strawberries, sliced
banana, sliced
1 small container yogurt (Greek-style is good for it's thickness and flavor, but any compatible fruit-flavored, plain, or vanilla yogurt you have in the fridge will do)
splash of vanilla extract
a few tablespoons of milk

You're basically making a smoothie and then freezing it.  EASY-PEASY.  Just experiment with amounts to give you that smoothie-like consistency.

Here we have some satisfied customers.  Never mind that one is eating Nutella on a banana.  Whoa, now - THAT would be really good in a frozen pop!

What ingredients would YOU use? 

Happy summer?
