Strawberry FROYO POPS

unnamed (18)

These strawberry FROYO POPS are both kid & adult approved! They are so simple to make and you can use this as a base for dozens of froyo combinations! 1 Secret ingredient ties this summer staple together.  

I know I crave ice cream to beat the heat. My little one also loves this magical treat. But as I have grown more conscious of what goes into them in shops or stores it has become a rare occasion to go them. UNTIL NOW!

I came up with this homemade recipe to recreate the magical froyo experience with all the refreshing flavors you find at your local froyo shop for a fraction of the suspicious ingredients, sugar, cost & guilt! 

In fact only 5 ingredients are used to make these FROYO POPS. 

Ingredients:

2 cups strawberries

1 cup vanilla yogurt

1 tbls honey

3/4 almond milk

1/4 tsp pink Himalayan salt

For the forms, I got mine from Ikea. They were about $2 for a mold of six. They are perfect for these and are reusable!

YES, the SECRET INGREDIENT is Pink Himalayan salt! Just a pinch or two to cut the sweetness and balance out the flavors. Trust me on this one. 

Instructions: (Makes 9 pops with the Ikea molds)

Wash, dry & remove stems from strawberries.

*HACK FOR REMOVING STRAWBERRY STEMS!* Using a straw insert into bottom of strawberry and pierce through stem on opposite end. You then have a de-stemmed strawberry and you are not cutting off too much berry off the ends! TA DAH!

Place 1 1/2 cups of strawberries into food processor to create a strawberry puree. Yum! Add your 1 Tbls of honey and then pulse a few more times to incorporate.  It should look something like this.

In a bowl add the cup of yogurt (Greek yogurt is good too but then I would add some more honey and almond milk to cut through the thickness and tart). Then add the strawberry puree & the almond milk. Next add the SECRET INGREDIENT, the salt! Just a dash or two of ground salt. Stir again.

Next pour into the molds.

With the left over 1/2 cup of strawberries chop finely and sprinkle on top of the molds.

Place in freezer for about 2 hours or until frozen!

ENJOY!
