Can I just say, I love smoothies and popsicles! We've been making both to keep cool around here since it's already over 100 degrees.
Here's a couple recipes for you all to enjoy yourselves.
1 cup plain yogurt (we use homemade)
1/4 cup sugar
1 cup frozen strawberries
Blend for about 30 seconds to 1 minute, or until strawberries are crushed.
1 cup plain yogurt
1/2 cup frozen 100% orange juice (we freeze the juice in ice cube trays and use 5 or 6 cubes)
2 Tbs sugar
1 tsp vanilla
Blend until smooth (or use 1/4 cup unfrozen juice and mix by hand - we've done it by hand a lot because the power is out a lot).
Make dreamsicle smoothies and then freeze them in the popsicle maker thing. Yum!
Choose your favorite juice, pour into popsicle maker thing and freeze. For a variation, mix in some fruit with your juice before freezing. What is that popsicle maker thing called anyway?
Does anyone else have ideas for smoothies and popsicles? Please share!
