Popsicles! Limeade Greek Yogurt Pops, to be exact.

by Tonya

Is it still summer at your house? I feel like Fall is being forced upon me, but it is still full-on summertime at my house. Sure, it's getting dark earlier, and during our evening walks, the air feels almost-crisp. But in the daytime, it's about 90 degrees, and my kids are too young to go to school, so there's no reason to let go of summer just yet. I have a simple popsicle recipe to help you eke a little more out of this summer. 

I had been craving some sort of fruity, tangy frozen yogurt pops for a while but I couldn't find any at the store. Of course the solution was to make them myself. I just started making greek yogurt this summer and that seemed perfect for creamy, tangy popsicles. You can use store-bought yogurt, of course. 

5 Tbsp Sugar
1/4 cup Lime juice (or lemon juice)
1 1/3 cup Greek Yogurt

First, heat sugar and lime juice (or lemon juice) in a pan on the stove. Stir until the sugar is completely dissolved, making a simple syrup. Measure out greek yogurt into a mixing bowl. 

Whisk the simple syrup into the yogurt.

Pour into popsicle molds.

Add sticks (or have a little helper add them. It is SO much more exciting to eat something when you pulled a chair up to the counter and helped make it.) Freeze for 2 or 3 hours.

Eat! Enjoy the end of summer, even as you get excited for sweaters and boots (or long-sleeved Hello Kitty shirts).
