I don’t know about where you live, but spring has sprung in NYC. Because of this lovely weather, everyone is in a great mood. My boyfriend steps out of the apartment and immediately sends me a text that says “Excellent day for a run”, and others are signing off emails with “Enjoy the beautiful weather”. It’s such a happy time when we can all enjoy dry, sunny, perfect 70 degree days and lush green trees with flowers in bloom.
I think everyone just wants to leave work early and have a picnic. And while I wish I was your boss and could tell you to drop the email at 3 o’clock (I can’t), I can bring the spring recipes to you. Today, I have a delicious mini-popsicle that you can make in less than 5 minutes and enjoy any time for a little taste of spring. These popsicle are made with strawberries, banana, shredded coconut and vanilla Greek yogurt. All you need is an ice cube tray and some sort of stick (I cut straws into thirds). Pop them into the freezer and enjoy!
Makes about 8 popsicles
4 large strawberries, tops cut off
1 tablespoon of vanilla Greek yogurt
1 tablespoon shredded coconut
Small sticks (cut a straw into thirds)
- Place all ingredients in a food processor and blend until smooth.
- Pour mixture into ice cube tray. Place a stick into each popsicle.
- Freeze for 1-2 hours. Enjoy!
