Foggy Day Popsicles
In San Francisco the weather always takes a tragic turn for the worse in July. We got socked in by fog and you find yourself pulling out sweaters to wear during the day, turning the heater on at night and wishing you never lived here. As I type this I am wearing a fleece sweatshirt, jeans, socks and a long sleeved shirt... at 3:30 on Friday in July.
Then September comes along and I run around screaming about how much I love San Francisco and it's bass-ackward weather. I don't mind it that much, other than the occasional perusal of real estate listings in warmer climates a mere 25 minutes from here.
But even though its 30 degrees colder than our neighbors up in Santa Rosa, we still like to act like its summer. Behold our Foggy Day Popsicles, made with strawberries picked at the U-Pick Farm in Half Moon Bay and super tart greek yogurt and honey. San Francisco summer on a stick - cold and sweet.
3 cups hulled strawberries
1-3 T. powdered sugar
1 6 oz. container 0 % Greek yogurt
4 T. Honey (or to taste)
In a blender, combine strawberries and powdered sugar and puree till smooth. Add the sugar 1 spoonful at a time depending on the sweetness of your berries. Pour into a bowl.
In a separate bowl, combine yogurt, honey and 3 spoonfuls of the strawberry mixture and stir till combined.
Using any popsicle mold you have, spoon in layers of strawberry mixture alternating with a spoonful of the yogurt/strawberry mixture and freeze until your six year old can't stand another minute of waiting and takes them out behind your back.
