I'm going to be experimenting with freezer pops and ice cream quite a bit over the summer because my daughter constantly asks for both. I sometimes get lucky and find Rice Dream or Almond Bites (her favorite!) at the salvage grocery store, but I cannot afford either at the regular grocery. So, for those times that I'm not so lucky, I need a quick fix to replace her daily question, "How 'bout some ice cream, Momma?"
This is my first attempt, and I think it turned out pretty nicely, but I really want to try something with chocolate, and maybe some tofu in it, so I can dose her with extra protein while she snacks.
10 large strawberries
1/2 cup orange juice
1 6-ounce cup vanilla or strawberry yogurt (soy yogurt is fine)
1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
1/4 cup agave nectar
- Whirl all ingredients in a blender until smooth and creamy.
- Pour into preferred freezer pop vehicle. If you have nothing available, an ice tray with plastic baby spoons or straws works great.
- Allow to freeze overnight.
- Makes about 6 servings, dependent on the type of pops you're using.
