Strawberry Shortcake Popsicles

It’s strawberry season right now and most of the time my daughters and I can pretty much polish off baskets of them before they expire, but there are times when I over purchase and they come close to the turning point and I have to use theme up quickly.

This Strawberry Shortcake Popsicle recipe is great for those times. This fast and easy recipe is also a low-fat dessert. I love how easy these are to make and since they are tasty and low in calorie, you can indulge in guilt-free. Have one, two or ten!

Strawberry Shortcake Popsicles

1 ½ cup pureed strawberries
½ cup crushed Nilla Wafers
2 cups vanilla yogurt

Puree strawberries. Place Oreos in a food processor and pulse until cookies become fine crumbs. Alternatively, place Oreos in a Ziploc and using a rolling pin to crush cookies. Add crushed Oreos to the yogurt and mix until combined.

To assemble:
To assemble, layer the yogurt portion first and let freeze for 30 minutes before adding the strawberry layer, let this second layer freeze for 30 minutes and then add the last yogurt layer. For a quick assembly, pour each layer on top of one another without any freeze time in between and then use a skewer or fork and gently swirl for a swirled Popsicle look.
