Spring has FINALLY sprung, and just in case you haven’t noticed, we are a little excited here at the LPP office!  Last week we featured some delicious recipes, and some fun accessories for keeping dry during April’s showers.  This week we have some spring cleaning tips, and gorgeous family photo shoots. Enjoy!

From Melody ” I was lucky enough to first meet and photograph Sophia and Alexia on their 2nd birthday this past summer. We quickly became friends and I went home that day already envisioning their upcoming family shoot. With the help of their creative stylist/mom we planned the details and chose a location that turned out to be the perfect backdrop…They laughed, played games and danced under the sunshine as I snapped away in hopes of capturing moments they can share forever.”

Cherry Yogurt Popsicle Recipe

Filed under: Lifestyle, Notebook, Food

By admin

The Recipe: Meredith Steele from In Sock Monkey Slippers and we think this is the perfect way to kick off the weekend! Here’s to sunny Spring weather!

Cherry Yogurt Popsicles makes 10 3oz popsicles

Tools

  • 1 popsicle mold for 10 3oz popsicles (I’m using the Norpro Ice Pop Maker)
  • 10 popsicle sticks

I find frozen defrosted organic cherries are the best for this recipe. They are already pitted and have had time to release their juices. If you prefer, fresh cherries can substituted.

** I used White Mountain Bulgarian Yogurt for this recipe as part of an upcoming product review. The taste is tart and provides a fantastic flavor combination with the cherries. I highly suggest it but any plain yogurt can be substituted.

1. Place defrosted cherries in a food processor or blender. Process until smooth, about 1 minute.

2. To the yogurt, add honey and stir to combine.

3. Pour about 2 tablespoons of the cherry puree into the molds. Next, pour 2 tablespoons of the yogurt honey mixture into the molds. Repeat until the molds are full and you have layers of cherry puree and yogurt. With the end of a spoon or a chopstick, lightly stir the cherry puree and the yogurt until it just begins to have a swirled effect.

4. Place popsicle sticks in the molds and place in the freezer. Freeze at least 4 hours or until frozen. To remove from the molds, pour warm water briefly over the outside of the popsicle molds and then pull on the popsicle stick.
