Strawberry Yogurt Popsicles

It's been so hot in Utah lately that I'm ALL about trying to stay cool. And while we all love good old Otter Pops, sometimes it's nice to have something a little more healthy to cool down with.

I was so impressed with this popsicle recipe. It was so easy to throw together and they tasted great, too!

My biggest tip is to make sure to check the sweetness of the popsicles before you pour it into the molds so you don't have a sour popsicle. You can prevent this by finding ripe, sweet strawberries or by adding a little honey or sugar to the mix.
Nothing like a cool, refreshing treat on a hot summer day that you won't leave you feeling guilty! And if you're looking for great popsicle molds, I love these because of the great size, shape and the reusable handles prevent any popsicle from dripping onto your fingers. They're perfect!

1. Combine the strawberries, yogurt, lemon juice and vanilla in a blender or food processor.  Puree until smooth. Taste to see if you need to add a sweetener such as honey or sugar.
