We are all about the popsicles at my house this week. With school getting out and summer getting into full swing, there’s no better way to kick off summer vacation than with some great homemade popsicles filled with fresh fruit. My kids always love it when I make homemade popsicles and these creamy strawberry flax popsicles were a definite hit!
We made these extra creamy with Mountain High Yoghurt. We’re big yoghurt fans at my house and Mountain High Yoghurts is one of the brands we love so I was thrilled when they wanted to sponsor this post. We’ll often buy the plain yoghurt and use it in place of sour cream or flavor it with honey or jam. The cool thing about Mountain High Yoghurt is that it is cultured directly in the cup. The cup sits in a warm room for a few hours while the cultures thicken it and start to develop the great tangy flavor that it’s known for.
Since they are using cultures to thicken the yoghurt they don’t need to add any gelatin or mystery ingredients. It’s just good old fashion yoghurt, made using a traditional European method that is still used in many European countries today. Ingredients
- 1 cup frozen strawberries
- 1 cup Mountain High Yoghurt
- 1 banana
- 2 Tbsp flax seeds
- optional: drizzle of honey to sweeten
Prepare your popsicle molds. I used these ones I found on Amazon because they have built in drip guards and I thought that was kind of a cool feature.
Fill your blender with your frozen strawberries, banana, flax seeds and Mountain High Yoghurt. Blend well.
Pour your strawberry mixture into your popsicle molds, leaving just a bit of space at the top to make them easier to eat.
Freeze for at least 4 hours but overnight is best.
These are perfect for a summer snack. I’ve even given these to my kids for breakfast. They think I’m awesome and I know that I’m really just giving them fruit and yoghurt.
