This is something of a blog milestone. My 100th post. Small victories are a necessity in life. Especially when one is being soundly defeated by several piles of laundry lurking in the closet. I think I can safely ignore those ominous piles for another evening, at least. There are plenty of distractions to be had in the meantime - such as creating an excuse for celebration. Hence the 100th post. Let the celebrating commence.
There ought to be champagne. Instead, there are popsicles.
Strawberry Yogurt Popsicles
You can use any fruit you like. For a more grown-up version, add a few tablespoons of rum or vodka to the mixture before pouring in the molds. Careful not to add too much or it won't freeze!10 ounces (two small cartons) plain greek yogurt
1/2 cup strawberries (washed, dried and hulled)
3 tbsp sugar
Use a blender to blend the strawberries and sugar to a liquid consistency. A hand blender works perfectly for this. For a chunkier consistency, just mash the berries with a fork.
In a large bowl, mix the strawberries with the yogurt until well blended. Pour the mixture into six popsicle molds, or 6 paper cups. Add popsicle sticks and freeze until solid (about 4 hours). Remove from molds and eat! If using paper cups, simple tear the cup away from the popsicle. Easy!
