Fresh strawberries make these pops the perfect summer treat. For a simpler version, skip the layers and make ‘em all one flavour.

Servings
Makes 6 pops
Ingredients
  • 1 1/2 tbsp superfine sugar
  • 3 1/2 tbsp water
  • 1 1/3 cups strawberries, hulled
  • juice of one orange (about 1/3 cup)
  • 1 1/4 cups strawberry yogurt
Directions
  1. Put the sugar and water in a saucepan and boil for about 3 minutes until syrupy. Set aside to cool.

  2. Quarter the strawberries and purée in a hand blender. Press through a sieve to remove the seeds.

  3. Combine the strawberry purée with the cooled syrup and orange juice and pour into six freezer-pop moulds until about a third full. Freeze until solid. When the first layer is set, pour in yogurt to a depth of 1 inch and freeze. Once this layer is frozen, pour in the purée mixture almost to the top, and insert a stick in each freezer pop. Freeze again.

  4. When ready to eat, run the mould under hot water for a few seconds to loosen the freezer pops.

    My kids LOVE these they think they are a special treat and will eat them for desert. To speed up the process I often add 1.5 – 2 tbsp honey instead of making the simple syrup.
