Homemade Popsicles

Seven loves popsicles, but I hate giving her sugar! I decided to make up my own popsicle recipe...

We had these nifty little popsicle makers when I was a kid. It was kind of like a small rounded container with a lid and stick already built in. I found one of those at Walmart, but they were $7 and only made 4 popsicles. I decided to pick up this tall ice tray instead:

So I used:
Ice Tray
Aluminum Foil
Popsicle Sticks
 Blueberry Greek Yogurt
Frozen Strawberries

You'll have to forgive me because I didn't measure anything, but somehow I ended up with the right amount for the tray. You can see how full the blender is. I would say overestimate it, and if you end up with too much treat yourself to a smoothie. I did not add any sweetener (other than what was already in the yogurt) and they turned out great, but if you want it a bit sweeter I would recommend honey or stevia.

Pour the mixture over the ice tray.

Cover with aluminum foil

And put a Popsicle stick in each one.

Seven ate them just as quickly as she would and dye-filled-corn-syrup-on-a-sick, and they were a bit smaller and more manageable for her small hands, so I say success!
