Recipe by Sarah Kurtz
Makes 10 pops
My daughter Sarah has become very popular for her smopsicles (part smoothie and part popsicle equals smopsicle). She makes them with many different mixtures – chocolate milk, peanut butter and ice, mixed berries, vanilla and coconut, cranberry watermelon and others. I’ve noticed that the other kids and their friends come home from school and peak in the freezer for the new smopsicles to be ready to taste. Tonight she made these and she measured the ingredients out to share with GKC readers.
1 ½- 2 cups of milk (preferably fat-free)
1 (6-ounce) container of vanilla yogurt
2 teaspoons Crystal light Raspberry Drink Mix
1 cup frozen peaches (sliced)
1 cup frozen strawberries, sliced
1 tablespoon sugar
1 ½ cups ice
Optional- 1 small scoop of vanilla frozen yogurt
Small paper cups or Popsicle molds
Popsicle sticks or Lollipop sticks
In a blender, blend all of the ingredients together. After completely mixed (color should be a bright pink), stir the smoothie with a spoon to be sure no fruit or ice is left whole. If it is too chunky, may repeat blending until all ingredients are smooth (note: you can leave chunks of fruit if you like it that way).
In individual paper cups or Popsicle molds divide the smoothie and pour evenly into cups or Popsicle molds. Place 2 lollipop sticks or 1 Popsicle stick in each cup or mold. Make sure that the sticks are in an upright position. Place the cups or molds in the freezer on a flat surface. Chill the smopsicles in the freezer overnight. If you are using cups, tear the cup to get the smopsicle out. Eat and enjoy!
