Pink Girl Popsicles

So I thought I had a donut addiction.

But it turns out that I also have a popsicle problem.

Which is much healthier :-)

I did quite a bit of popsicle marker research before I decided to buy one. I wanted a mold where I could use regular wooden popsicle sticks and the Norpro Ice Pop Maker is the one I bought.

So if you are looking for something similar, I would highly suggest that one.

I’ve been cranking out popsicles like I’m the Schwan’s man.

Pink Girl Popsicles

Prep Time: 5 minutes

Total Time: 3 hours

Yield: about 6 popsicles

Ingredients

  • 2 cups chopped strawberries
  • 2 bananas
  • juice of 1/2 lemon (1 & 1/2 to 2 tbsp juice)
  • 2 tbsp honey or agave nectar
  • 1 cup plain greek yogurt

Instructions

  1. Place the strawberries, bananas, lemon juice, honey/agave nectar, and yogurt in a blender and blend until smooth.
  2. Pour into your popsicle molds. Follow your instructions for adding the sticks, etc.
  3. Freeze for at least 3 hours.
  4. Place the popsicle mold in several inches of room temperature water to help loosen the popsicles.
  5. Once the popsicles have been removed, wrap the extras in plastic wrap and store in the freezer for later use.

    These look delicious! And your pictures are gorgeous! Where do you buy your popsicle sticks as many are not food grade worthy? (Also hope to find made in the USA) Thanks. Happy Monday!!

    • Beth @ The First Year — May 19, 2014 at 3:23 pm

      My popsicle molds came with some sticks. But I am sure amazon sells them!

      Wishing I could enjoy one with you on the deck, Ashley!

    Beth – These look delicious (and easy too!) And, being such a pretty pink, it will be a great way to get my daughter to eat more fruit!!

    • Beth @ The First Year — May 20, 2014 at 9:13 am

      Exactly, what girl wouldn’t want to eat a pink girl popsicle!?!

  10. Britni Newton Vigil — May 20, 2014 at 10:21 pm

    I love popsicles, just don’t love having to wait for them to freeze so I tend to buy the store bought variety. But these, yum!

    • Beth @ The First Year — May 20, 2014 at 11:19 pm

      I know what you mean, I have to do something else to distract myself!

  11. Leslie — May 21, 2014 at 1:59 pm

    Haha, your blog is awesome. Those pops look yummy! I’ve been thinking about getting a little cicle maker since summer is coming. I’m pinning this & it’ll be the first one I make. I’m stopping by from the blog hop & I’m a new follower through Twitter.

    • Beth @ The First Year — May 21, 2014 at 4:33 pm

      Hi Leslie! Thanks for coming by today! Popsicle makers are great for the summer!

  13. Kris — May 22, 2014 at 9:56 pm

    Stopping by from Foodie Friends Friday. I absolutely have to get some popsicle molds so I can make these! Pinned :)

    This looks so yummy. My children will love it

  17. Marisa — May 24, 2014 at 8:41 am

    I love popsicles too – I find it’s a great way to use up all my over-ripe bananas and my kids think they’re getting a real “treat”. These look really good!

    • Beth @ The First Year — May 24, 2014 at 5:13 pm

      Haha! If only the kids really knew… :-)

  18. estheticgoddess — May 24, 2014 at 1:32 pm

    These sound so yummy! The Schwan has got nothing as good as these I bet!

  19. Karly — May 24, 2014 at 4:14 pm

    So much fun for summer! Thanks for linking up with What’s Cookin’ Wednesday!

  20. Teresa — May 24, 2014 at 9:00 pm

    Your Popsicles look delicious. It just occurred to me that they might be a good replacement for my ice cream habit. Visiting from SITS…wishing you all the best!

    • Beth @ The First Year — May 25, 2014 at 8:28 am

      I have a serious ice cream habit too….

  21. Gloria Phillips — May 24, 2014 at 11:18 pm

    Beth, I’m so intrigued by this gorgeous color… and the creative recipe! So happy you brought these frozen treats to the Show Stopper today!

    • Beth @ The First Year — May 25, 2014 at 8:27 am

      Thank you Gloria!

  22. Jessa @ Sparkle — May 25, 2014 at 10:41 am

    Love this! And the pink color is amazing. I’ve been on the ice pops kick for the past week too. Once you get started a million different flavor combinations just pop into your head.

  23. thecasualcraftlete — May 25, 2014 at 11:31 am

    You had me at pink! Thanks for sharing at the Frugal Crafty Home Blog Hop, Beth. Your gorgeous popsicles will be one of my features tonight. Hope you stop by and share some more yummy recipes :)

  24. Amanda — June 1, 2014 at 6:48 pm

    How do you store your popsicles? Do you just leave them in the mold, or do you have another way to make room for more creations?! :)

    • Beth @ The First Year — June 1, 2014 at 8:12 pm

      Hi Amanda! Great question, I mentioned in the recipe section that I wrap them in plastic wrap, so I can use my mold again right away :-)

  25. Rachel @ BubblyNatureCreations.com — June 2, 2014 at 9:45 pm

    My girls would go crazy over these! I will have to make them… they are healthy too! yum!

    • Beth @ The First Year — June 3, 2014 at 7:52 am

      I bet any girl would love these with a name like pink girl!
