To Make: Fruit-Yogurt Popsicles
As I write this, the heat index is 102f and climbing. We're due for some cooler, drier air this weekend (just in time for the Market!) but it is oppressive out there right now. Wouldn't a popsicle help?
This is another very forgiving recipe -- you can use pretty much any combination of fruit and yogurt, pour it into popsicle molds, freeze and enjoy. In fact, you could use your favorite smoothie recipe and get good results. I really like vanilla yogurt purred with peaches, cherries and a little extra vanilla and a smidgen of honey. You could also add mint or lavender...the possibilities are endless, and the experimenting is lots of fun!
Get all the fruit (and herbs) you need to keep your freezer full of frozen treats this Saturday at the Market. Benny's Fruit Stand (aka Rebert's), Shlagel Farm and our other great produce vendors will be on hand with delicious additions for creations!
