Get ready for summer with homemade strawberry-kiwi popsicles.
Last week when I was walking across the VSP campus, I didn’t have to take more than a few steps outside before I realized this was going to be one long hot walk. Let’s face it, we are looking at a steamy summer, but that just means it is time for cool treats! By the time I made it back to my desk that afternoon, I was craving something refreshing and sweet. With the cafeteria already closed for the day, and nothing striking my fancy in the vending machine I decided to wait it out. I knew just the thing to make at home that would be satisfying and refreshing.
On a hot day, I don’t think you can ever go wrong with a popsicle, especially when they are packed with loads of eye healthy fruits. Even though you want to indulge, you can still makes something tasty and healthy that the whole family will enjoy. This easy recipe is good for you, and will please even this pickiest of eaters. The fruit used in this recipe are a good source of Vitamins A, C, and E, which all help support your eye health.
Frozen Strawberry-Kiwi Popsicles
1 cup of hulled and cut strawberries
1 cup peeled, cut kiwi
2 cups of Vanilla yogurt
2 tsp. Turbinado (raw) Sugar (more or less to taste)
Juice of half a lime
Place strawberries and kiwi in a food processor, and puree to desired consistency. I like mine very smooth, but there is no one right way. Mix in the yogurt, sugar, and lime juice, until well blended. Pour the mixture into your Popsicle molds, and put them into the freezer until firm. Remember, you can substitute your favorite healthy fruit or even a sweet veggie like baby carrots or beets!
