I got this incredibly simple recipe from Highlights High Five magazine (a wonderful, if very expensive, magazine for preschoolers). Camila (my 4.5 yo) decided she wanted to make it today and she managed quite well by herself. I did do the blending (I used my rocket blender) and put the cups in the freezer, but she did everything else.
The original recipe calls for little paper glasses and popsicle sticks – I didn’t have either so I used small plastic cups and the handles of plastic spoons. They came out great, the kids loved them and they couldn’t be easier.
I also didn’t have vanilla yogurt, so I used plain yogurt, added a couple of drops of vanilla essence and a couple of teaspoons of sugar.
- 1 1/2 cup strawberries
- 1/2 cup vanilla yogurt
Put strawberries and yogurt in a blender and blend well. Pour mixture into 4-6 small cups. Place in the refrigerator for 1-2 hours. Put popsicle sticks in the middle of the popsicles and continue freezing for 2-3 hours.
