Yogurt, honey, strawberries, and a touch of black pepper make for a delightful combination that’s sure to be a hit. It’s even healthy—which is surley a selling point.
Strawberry Lassi Ice Pops
(Makes 8-10 servings)
- 2 cups halved hulled strawberries or frozen whole strawberries, thawed
- 1 cup plain yogurt*
- ⅓ cup milk
- ¼ cup liquid honey*
- Pinch freshly ground black pepper
*Use at least 2% yogurt or yogurt with a higher fat content for this ice pop. Greek-style or drained (thickened) yogurt also produces a good result. Non-fat or 1% yogurt can be used but will produce an icy rather than creamy result. Use a light-flavored floral honey such as wildflower, orange blossom, acacia, or clover.
- In blender at medium speed, purée strawberries, yogurt, milk, honey, and pepper.
- Pour into molds and freeze until slushy, then insert sticks and freeze until solid for at least 4 hours. If you are using an ice pop kit, follow the manufacturer’s instructions.
