Lemonade Popsicles

The weather here is sooooo HOT!!! What better way to cool off than to make some lemonade popsicles? I couldn't think of anything better either ;o)

This summer, I notice that I have a border-line unhealthy obsession with lemons....  Not that Ben is complaining; he gets to make lemonade whenever I use the zest so it's a win-win for us.  I've also had a thing for berries this year--so what better way to feed those obsessions than to make BERRY lemonade pops?!

I might also be a little quirky--I made some straight lemonade pops with basil.  Yeah, I know...  I had heard it's delicious.  Ben looked at me like I grew a second head...  Oh well...  It's DELICIOUS, and that's all I can say!

Lemonade Pops

Serves 8-20 (depending if you make straight lemonade or layer it with berries or basil!)

3/4 cups lemon juice
10 tablespoons sugar
18 oz Greek vanilla yogurt
1 pint of blueberries, cleaned
1 pint of strawberries, cleaned
1 tablespoon basil, chopped

  1. Heat lemon juice and sugar on the stove until sugar is dissolved.  Set aside to cool.
  2. Meanwhile, place blueberries and 3 oz of yogurt in food processor and puree until smooth.  Place blueberry mix in a bowl and chill.
  3. Then, place strawberries and 3 oz of yogurt in food processor and puree until smooth. Place strawberry mix in a bowl and chill.
  4. Whisk remaining 12 oz of yogurt into the lemon mix.  Place in a bowl and chill.
  5. Fill popsicle molds to your desire: strawberry lemonade, blueberry lemonade, basil lemonade. strawberry lemonade blueberry, strawberry blueberry--the choices are endless!
  6. Place in freezer until frozen.
  7. Dip in warm water to release the popsicle from the model.
  8. Enjoy!
