Homemade Yogurt Popsicles

Are you hot yet?  These popsicles are a great way to cool off without all the guilt involved with traditional syrupy, sugary popsicles.  Sweetened with honey and fruit and full of the probiotic properties of yogurt, this is an all-natural snack you can feel good feeding to your kiddos (and enjoying yourself)!
This yummy recipe comes from another blog I read (you should check it out; she really does a great job!)
Step 1:  Gather your ingredients --
1 c. yogurt (store-bought or homemade from your dairy goat's milk . . . you know, whichever ;)
1/4 c. honey
1 lb. fresh fruit (we used strawberries and cherries)
1 Tbs. vanilla (optional)
Plastic popsicle molds

Step 2:  Dump ingredients into a food processor or blender and process/blend until smooth.   (As pictured, I used a food processor, but, in hindsight, I'd recommend a blender because it's easier to pour out of -- see photo below).

Step 3:  Pour into your popsicle molds (then clean up the mess, if you're as messy in the kitchen as I tend to be).

Step 4:  Freeze for a few hours, then enjoy with a cutie pie like the one pictured here.  :)

Note: Don't expect these to taste as sweet as your last sugar-laden popsicle.  If they aren't sweet enough for your liking, try subbing in 1/2 can of fat free sweetened condensed milk for the honey next time.
