Strawberry Shortcake Poppsie's

a rainy labor day brings fun things to do especially when you have a six year old. so who doesn't love poppsies (or popsicles). here is a fast and easy recipe and its healthy. who wouldn't love that? so in between watching re-runs of "The Real Housewives of New Jersey" (love love), we whipped these up. enjoy!

*strawberry shortcake poppsies

2 cups fresh strawberries, washed and hulled
1 1/2 cups of crushed Nilla wafers
2 cups whole milk plain or vanilla yogurt (i used vanilla)
1/3 cup honey
12 oz Dixie Cups (plastic is better)
wooden popsicle sticks

In a medium bowl, combine the crushed Nilla wafers, yogurt and honey. Set out 12 Dixie cups, an fill each with 2 tablespoons of the yogurt mixture. Set in the freezer to chill for 30 minutes.

Meanwhilte, in a blender or food processor, puree the berries. Divide the berries among the 12 cups, insert popsicle sticks and freeze for another 30 minutes. Finally, divide the remaining yogurt honey mix on top. To serve cut or tear cup. Makes 12 popsicles.

*note: I used strawberry yogurt instead of berries. Also, you can substitute any yogurt for this recipe and instead of vanilla wafers use graham cracker crumbs.

have a great labor day!
