Boozy Strawberry Rhubarb Yogurt Pops
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
measurements are approximate
2 cups strawberries cleaned and sliced
2 tbs sugar (use if you like and sweeten to taste)
1/4 cup rhubarb cordial
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.
