Strawberry and Mint Yogurt Popsicles

Fresh strawberries are in season and the mint I planted four weeks ago are ready for first harvest. I also have a jar of organic honey I bought from a local bee keeper. They make a perfect healthy breakfast on top of Greek yogurt. BUT why not kick it up a notch and make popsicles out of it!

While doing the pictorial for this post, I finished a popsicle already. It's refreshing, creamy, and tangy without worrying about the calories! A perfect alternative for ice cream ....

Strawberry and Mint Yogurt Popsicles


1 1/2 cups Plain Nonfat Greek Yogurt
1 pint fresh strawberries {mashed}
zest of one lemon
juice of half small lemon
15 leaves of fresh mint {chopped}
1/2 cup honey {can be substituted with 1/4 cup sugar; adjust to desired sweetness}
1/4 cup milk

Popsicle molds


Put half a teaspoon of mashed strawberries at the bottom of each popsicle mold.
In a bowl combine remaining strawberries and the rest of the ingredients.
Mix well.
Fill popsicle molds with the strawberry and mint yogurt mixture and freeze overnight.
