Strawberry Lime Yogurt Popsicles

My 3 year old is as fickle as little girls come.  One day she loves loves loves lemon and I make a batch of our favorite Raspberry Lemonade Popsicles.  The next day she says, "Mommy, I don't like lemon".  Fine, what would you like?  Blueberry Vanilla Yogurt Popsicles? Oh yes, mommy!  OK.  After one...  "Mama, I prefer strawberry".  Seriously?  I can't imagine how she became so fickle.  Oh, wait.  Maybe I know someone like that. 

I offer her popsicles as a fun and healthy treat for snack time.  Not to mention it is so easy to grab one and hand it to her while I am working, rather than preparing a healthy snack like fruit and yogurt.  Well, needless to say with her ever changing tastes, I am always looking for new ideas to create healthy snacks.  Last week at the end of our shopping week, we had ripe strawberries and limes remaining.  SCORE!

The flavor combination is fantastic.  It is refreshing with the perfect sweetness.  And...  Its a healthy treat packed with antioxidants.

Strawberry Lime Yogurt Popsicles
makes 10 popsicles

1 cup strawberries, cut in half
1 tablespoon honey
1 cup plain yogurt
juice of 1 lime (about ¼ cup)

In a large bowl, drizzle honey over strawberries.  Let the hang out on the counter for a few minutes until they start to get juicy.  Transfer them to a blender and puree.

Pour back into bowl, add yogurt and lime juice.  Mix to combine.

Pour into popsicle molds.  Cover with lid or aluminum foil.  Add sticks.  Freexe 4-24 hours until firm.  Remove from molds, serve and enjoy.

We like to store our popsicles in resealable sandwich bags.  Then we place them into a gallon size resealable bag.   They keep longer and stay fresher.
