Strawberry and Cream Popsicles: Improv Challenge

This is the post that almost didn’t happen!  A huge lightning storm knocked out my internet for 24 hours and this girl who never usually procrastinates was caught procrastinating.  It would have been pretty embarrassing if the host of the Improv Cooking Challenge didn’t have a recipe ready.  As it is, I typed this up the night before posting.  I apologize for slapping this together.  I will do better for Cherries and Almonds next month!!

It’s Strawberries and Cream month this time.    Following a suggestion from former blogger, but constant friend, Ann (from the soon to disappear blog, Cooking Healthy for Me), I went with popsicles.  The humidity has started rising here in Florida, so any kind of cold treat is welcome.    I opted for  a low sugar version.    To be totally honest, I was hoping to eat them all myself, but the days of sneaking anything past my kids are long gone.   I only made three of the two layered popsicles, but had lots of the strawberry part left.  I pour that into cups and froze them plain.  All of the kids ate and enjoyed those.  It ended up tasting a bit like a strawberry sorbet.

I have these really cool popsicle molds that allow you to make two layer frozen treats.  I got them through blogging, I haven’t seen them in stores.  To make this two layer treat without fancy gizmos, I’d just pour the strawberry layer halfway up your mold or paper cups, freeze and then add a second layer of the other.

  1. Those popsicles look quite inviting. We’ve had a beautiful day and I could use a cool treat right about now. I wish I had stopped by sooner, I would have submitted my Strawberry Creme cake I made last weekend. Have a great weekend Kristen!
