Bite Of Minnesota: Strawberry Yogurt Pops

MINNEAPOLIS (WCCO) — Strawberry season flew by quickly again this year. The season usually lasts until the Fourth of July holiday, but due to odd weather conditions over the past couple of years, strawberry crops have been increasingly unreliable.

A little over a week ago, I was having trouble finding a farm to pick at and now it seems I’ve run out of time.

If you were lucky enough to get your hands on local strawberries, I have a great dessert recipe for your upcoming Fourth of July picnic: Strawberry yogurt pops. Even if you missed strawberry season like I did, you can easily substitute another fruit like raspberries or mango. Using a higher fat yogurt yields a creamier popsicle, but low-fat yogurt also works in this recipe.

Strawberry Yogurt Pops

2 cups strawberries, trimmed
1-2 tbsp sugar
2 cups plain or vanilla yogurt

Combine strawberries and sugar in a medium bowl and mash with a fork until strawberries break down. Add yogurt and stir to combine. Refrigerate mixture for 1 hour, taste for sweetness, and add more sugar if desired before pouring into popsicle molds. Don’t forget the popsicle stick! Freeze in molds overnight or for at least 8 hours.

To serve, run warm water over popsicle mold and it should release easily.
