On Popsicles and Smoothies

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.

Strawberry smoothies

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.

Dreamsicle smoothies
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).

Dreamsicle popsicles

Make dreamsicle smoothies and then freeze them in the popsicle maker thing. Yum!

Juice popsicles

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!


  1. Yum! I saw some yogurt/juice popsicle recipes online the other day and really wanted to try - these sound yummy! Where did you get frozen strawberries?????? That is AWESOME!!!!!!!

  2. I have the popsicle mold things, but it would be fun to have the sick kind :) Ever see any popsicle sticks??

  3. We bought a bunch of strawberries back in January and February and just froze them in our deep freezer. It's a family tradition to have strawberry cake for birthdays, so frozen strawberries are essential to have all year 'round. :)

    My popsicle sticks came from America, but they must have some around here somewhere since you can buy popsicles on sticks....

  4. Great idea!!! Right now we have a REALLY SMALL freezer, but we're hoping to buy a bigger fridge soon, so that should help some :) You can buy deep freezers? That's a fun idea :) Cool :)

  5. Just wondering what ur recipe was for yougurt!


Join the conversation, glorify the Lord, proclaim his goodness. I'd love it if you did.
