Strawberry Banana Yogurt Pops

Bananas and Strawberries....have you ever watched Veggietales?  We cannot mention the two together without getting our {SVEede} accent and acting out "Hello, I am the Englishman who went up the hill and came down with all the bananas. Leaving, of course, the inhabitants of the hill with no bananas and therefore bestowing the term 'selfish' upon myself." and so on and so can watch the poor You Tube clip or find it in King George and the Ducky.  Good story, funny little blips.  I wish they were still owned by Big Idea Productions..they are much better than the newer ones. 

Back to the combining of the Bananas and Strawberries here- it is summer break, there are plenty of chances to have sugar and treats.  This is a sweet, frozen, low sugar treat with potassium, Vitamin C, calcium, protein and minerals from the wonderful healing raw honey.  Easy to prepare and fun enough for the kids to do on there own too.  They won't even miss the absence of sugar in this.

Have the kids make up a batch for Father's Day!  If I know anything about Dad's, I know they LOVE frozen ice cream treats!  Right Hubby?!  Dad?!  Ladies nodding there heads.

Strawberry Banana Yogurt Pops
Print recipe here
8-12 strawberries, sliced, diced or pureed
2 ripe bananas, mashed  (KT#8)
2 TB raw honey
2 C plain full fat yogurt or greek yogurt
12- 3 oz paper Dixie style cups
12 popsicle sticks

1. In a medium bowl combine the strawberries, bananas and honey. Stir in the yogurt.

2. Place 12 paper cups into a cake pan for some stability while transferring into the freezer. Divide the yogurt mix into all 12 cups.

3. Freeze yogurt pops for 10-15 minutes. Remove from freezer, place the popsicle sticks into middle of yogurt cups.  Place back into the freezer for 3-4 hours until frozen through. (Obviously) store in the freezer until eaten.  To easily release them from their paper, run under room temperature water for 5 seconds, then pull straight out.

Note:  Doubling this recipe will still easily fit into one cake pan.  Feel free to mix up the fruits and find your favorite combination.  Suggestion to leave the bananas, as they are there for sweetness. If you remove the bananas they will be a lot less sweet. Replace the strawberries with other berries or pureed apples, pears, peaches, pineapple and plums.  I will also be making these with heavy cream, half and half and full fat coconut milk!  

Happy Father's Day to all the DAD'S out there!!!
