As the heat wave continues, I realize that I have to get creative in the kitchen. I am grateful that I bought that Popsicle maker. It continues to be such a hit, and I can make a variety of yummy frozen treats.
This week, I turned to the strawberries. They were on sale and had to be used up. I love a strawberry salad with a balsamic dressing, so I decided to see if it would work in a Popsicle. As my picky daughter can testify, it was a success! She gives it two thumbs up!
Strawberry Balsamic Yogurt Popsicles
3/4 pound of fresh strawberries
2 tbsp. white sugar
1 tsp. vanilla
2 tbsp. balsamic vinegar (always use the good stuff)
3/4 cup plain Greek Yogurt
Slice up the strawberries and place in a non metallic bowl. Sprinkle the sugar over the strawberries and put them aside for 30 minutes to an hour to let them macerate.
With an immersion blender, puree the strawberries. It can be chunky, but not too chunky. Mix in the rest of the ingredients.
Pour mixture in to Popsicle mold and freeze.
Eat them quickly before they melt. Enjoy!
