summer treats - popsicles!!

Kansas is blazing hot right now. You don't even get all the way out of the door before you start to sweat. Perfect time for popsicles. Not only do they taste good but you don't have to warm up the house a bit to make this sweet treat.

strawberry and peach popsicles

-2 cups strawberries, hulled and halved
-4 peaches, cut up
-1/4 c. sugar
-1/4 c. pure maple syrup
-1/2 c. greek yogurt

-popsicle sticks

Using your blender, puree the strawberries, peaches and 1/4 c. sugar. In a small bowl, mix the greek yogurt and the maple syrup together. (taste test - if not sweet enough you can add a bit more sugar or maple syrup.) 

Pour the fruit puree into popsicle molds, filling only half full, add the yogurt and then finish filling with the puree. After the lid is on top of the molds, and the popsicle sticks. Freeze for at least 4 hours. 

To take out of the mold, let thaw a couple of minutes or run water over the molds to loosen.
