Boozy Strawberry Rhubarb Yogurt Pops

IMG_2725

I am dedicating the next few posts to frozen treats, ice cream. sorbet and popsicles.  These popsicles are so simple to make and sort of nutritionally sound because they contain very little sugar and if you omit the booze it’s like a frozen breakfast popsicle. A few posts back I told you I made a rhubarb cordial, I used it in the Pavlova and now in these popsicles. They are so easy to make, all you need is a popsicle mold and a few ingredients, no cooking required. You don’t need to use any alcohol in your pops, honestly there is so little in this it’s almost not there,  but for a family friendly popsicle simply omit. I didn’t really use a recipe for this, eyeballed and the measurements below are approximate, it just happens that it made pretty much the right amount to fill the molds. I added and tasted so bear in mind that this is not exact.

I just got a great popsicle mold made my onyx, it’s stainless steel, freezes quickly and the popsicles come out like a dream. I am very happy with it because it also has a feature that ensures the stick remains in place and can be inserted when you first place it in the freezer, genius.

I’ve got my ice packs and insulated carrier ready because I’m bringing these beauties to Fiesta Friday #126. This is a holiday weekend and Angie’s co hosts are all of us. It is up to us to vote on our favorite recipes.

Strawberry Rhubarb Yogurt Popsicles

Makes 8

measurements are approximate

Strawberries

2 cups strawberries cleaned and sliced

2 tbs sugar (use if you like and sweeten to taste)

1/4 cup rhubarb cordial

Yogurt

2 cups whole milk greek yogurt (approximately 14 oz)

sugar to taste

2 tbs rhubarb cordial

1 tsp vanilla

Mash the macerated strawberries with a fork. Mix the yogurt with the sugar, rhubarb cordial and vanilla. The cordial thins the very thick greek yogurt slightly, if using greek yogurt you will want to thin it a bit with either the cordial or a liquor, water, milk or cream or fruit juice, your choice. Layer the strawberries first, then the yogurt and end with the yogurt. Place in freezer and enjoy in 4+ hours. See how easy this is.

    Strawberry rhubarb is a match made in heaven! Love all the fruits and yogurt – I am so going to make them for my daughter’s breakfast (minus the booze) because popsicles are a genius way to get kids to eat more fruits. And your popsicle maker — OMG — I have not seen an object more divine 🙂

    July 1, 2016
    • Yes I think they are a great cool breakfast in the go! Happy 4th and thank you so much!!

    • I have a different one that I had been using but love this mold so much I now want the other shapes. The stainless freezes quickly and releases easily. It’s the best. Thanks Jasmine.

  18. These sound very refreshing and yummy Suzanne. Have a great Fourth of July weekend 🙂

  19. Wow, I got dragged into this post just by looking at those gorgeous popsicles Suzanne. I always wonder if I need to invest in all these amazing gadgets I see on various blogs. However, I’m convinced I need to have those stainless steel ones. Just love the flavors of your boozy popsicles. 🙂

    July 1, 2016
    • They are not tremendously boozy, just a touch, of course more can be added but I like it light especially in the summer. Thanks so much Loretta. Recommend this brand of popsicle mold, it’s super good quality.

      July 1, 2016
  20. These look absolutely beautiful Suzanne, love the color and the contrast layers too! 🙂

    July 2, 2016
  21. I’ve had a bit of catching up to do – I’ve been off my game, lol! I have been wanting to make boozy pops and these look amazing! Wish I had one right now!! 🙂

    July 2, 2016
    • Thanks Mollie, I hope you are doing ok. Love a boozy pop or a boozy slushy drink. I am going to make one for my next post.

      July 2, 2016
      • I am, thanks, and I’ll look forward to that!! 🙂

        July 2, 2016
  22. Sounds yummy

    July 2, 2016
  23. Those popsicles are so pretty. I just love strawberry and rhubarb together and booze? Yep, I like booze. I’ve never seen popsicle molds like those. Will definitely head over and check them out.

    July 2, 2016
    • It is a wonderful mold, best quality I’ve seen and I love that it’s not plastic. Thanks Julie.

      July 2, 2016
  24. They look Yummy! Very sophisticated popsicle gear you have there!! 😉

    July 2, 2016
    • Thanks Julianna. I have been looking for that type of mold but didn’t want plastic. Was so happy to find them at a reasonable price and such good quality.

      July 2, 2016
  25. Gorgeous pops Suzanne! I am looking forward to your other frozen treats too. Happy 4th!

  26. Perfect for 4th of July weekend! Yum!

    July 2, 2016
  27. I landed on your blog from Sumith babu’s. Lovely creation 😊

    July 3, 2016
    • I’m so glad you did. I enjoy Sumith’s blog and thank you for stopping by here. Looking forward to visiting your blog a well.

      July 3, 2016
      • Sure, you are most welcome on my humble virtual abode.

        July 3, 2016
  28. The vivid colour looks so inviting and makes me want to reach in and grab one. Sadly that’s not possible! I like the idea of the pops being sugar lite.

    July 3, 2016
    • Thank you so much, yes these are tart, light on the sugar and really delicious.

      July 4, 2016
  29. Lovely ice-pops! Are these boozy? Is rhuabrb cordial boozy? Is it falvoured with gin? Vodka? I love to make these soon though! 🙂 A beautiful presentation too! xxx

    July 4, 2016
  30. Hi Sophie, yes the rhubarb cordial is vodka, rhubarb and sugar. Very boozy indeed. I used only a small amount so these pops are not intoxicating but it does give such a nice flavor when the strawberries macerate in the cordial. Thanks so much.

    July 4, 2016
  31. Hope you had a nice 4th! I love the idea of these popsicles. Yum!

    July 5, 2016
  32. These are so beautiful, Suzanne! They must taste wonderful, too. I can imagine that the tartness from the rhubarb and the creaminess from the yoghurt would be a great combination! How fun that you were able to get more than one use out of the cordial!

    July 5, 2016
    • Thanks Shari they are really good the strawberries taste do fresh and the whole thing is only lightly sweetened it is a really nice combination😃😃

      July 5, 2016
  33. Yes, super easy, but oh soo stunningly beautiful! I love all the layers. The contrast of the strawberry and rhubarb against the white yogurt is perfection.

    July 5, 2016
    • Thanks Patty had one tonight at 11pm it’s still in the mid 80’s Popsicle weather❤️💕

      July 5, 2016
  34. This is a winner, Suzanne! So refreshing and I second Patty, they are stunningly beautiful!

    July 5, 2016
    • Thank you so much Angie, they were fun to make and are so good on a hot day.

      July 7, 2016
  35. OK Suzanne– these are the prettiest popsicles on record! And that popsicle maker!! You have the best equipped kitchen– I always love what comes out of it… Stay cool! xo

    July 7, 2016
    • Thanks Rhonda, the colors are so pretty, the strawberries were so red, I almost added a layer of blueberry for a patriotic popsicle, LOL. I totally love my popsicle mold, it’s great quality and makes the prettiest popsicles.

      July 7, 2016
      • Yep, they do look like holiday pops!! even without the blue. Fun post Suzanne!

        July 8, 2016
  36. These look so pretty and sound delicious!

    Oh you are just doing this to make me drool! RHUBARB!! I ADORE rhubarb!! And boozy popsicles with rhubarb? I think I’ve died and gone to heaven! And that popsicle maker, wow! I have an issue with using sticks that are made in China (don’t trust that they are safe/chemical free). Do you buy yours any place in particular, Suzanne?

    July 7, 2016
    • Thanks so much, I don’t know where the popsicle sticks are made, I got them from the same place I got the mold, they are bamboo, compostable, reusable (they say but I wouldn’t do that) I hope they are chemical free.

      July 8, 2016
      • CC #

        Ooh, those sound pretty good! I’ll look for them, thanks Suzanne!

    Suzanne,
    Popsicles are my favorite part of summer. I love Greek yogurt popsicles and these boozy ones are just perfect:)

    July 8, 2016
    • In the summer I can’t get enough of popsicles, ice cream and frozen drinks. You are so right, it’s the best part of summer.

      July 9, 2016
  39. I just received an email from Food 52 advertising this popsicle maker and ordered it from them. Looks like a great kitchen gadget for me to have. I missed your post so I’m glad that you were featured so I could read all about it 🙂

    July 11, 2016
    • Oh thats great, I love it. I was previously using Zoikos brand which was good but this one is so much better and I prefer not just the shape of the popsicle but the fact that it’s stainless steel rather than plastic. I just saw it in the Food52 shop. Very cool, thank you Judi.
