The perfect summer heat wave treat: Frozen Greek Yogurt Pops with Fresh Strawberries. Picking local strawberries to make these was my favorite thing I did this week. So today I give you an oh so simple and delightful summer popsicle with my organic strawberries.
Community Supported Agriculture: A great way to support local farmers
But before I get into that, I would like to welcome you to my Community Supported Agriculture Series. I bought a summer farm share at Clark Farm in Carlisle, MA. This is very exciting. Community Supported Agriculture (CSA) is all about supporting local farms by buying a share of their harvest before the growing season and receiving farm fresh produce every week for a certain period of time.
I thought it would be fun to post new recipes each week where I use my fresh, organic farm veggies in recipes that you can make too! I know there are a lot of people out there who do CSA in the summer. So this is for all of you!
Frozen Greek yogurt pops: a summer must-have
Greek yogurt has been having a moment for several years now and with good reason. It's creamy, it's tangy, you can add any number of fruits to it and it comes in zero fat, 1% fat, whole milk, etc. I do prefer whole milk Greek yogurt and definitely sugar free. So when I thought about a summer treat to cool down with, my Clark Farm Strawberries were calling. Two weeks in a row we got to pick our own strawberries and I can't tell you how much fun that is.
It's all about the strawberries, isn't it always?
I already posted my Summer Strawberry Torte recipe and I saved some strawberries for these awesome Frozen Greek Yogurt Pops. If you are able to get farm fresh strawberries by either picking them yourself or stopping by a farm stand, I highly recommend it. Strawberries are adorable, right? I don't think I ever realized that. And the strawberries at Clark Farm are this deep red, and they were so ripe and so ready and so beautiful. Even with the strawberries I used for my Greek Yogurt Pops, I still have more! I went ahead and put them in the freezer for now while I think of what I want to do next!
So I ordered a 6-pack of popsicle molds that are 4 ouces each. Here is the link for the popsicle molds on Amazon if you don't have any yourself... I didn't have any before I made these. This recipe comes together very quickly, but then you do have to wait while they freeze. Booooo! But I survived and so will you.
I've got some great tips below in the notes section of my recipe card. I hope you enjoy this recipe - it's so refreshing as we head into the summer months to have a little homemade treat on a hot day. This is a great project for kids too, especially if you can include a trip to a farm to pick your strawberries.Print
