Friends, I am playing on the beach, eating lots of fish and sweet Hawaiian rolls, ignoring all of my work emails, and enjoying the company of the most awesome man alive. I didn’t want to peace out for too long without giving you an awesome recipe from my BBFF (Blog Best Friend Forever. Don’t judge.) Nicole. She is an amazing cook, a creative and unique recipe creator, and all around one of the most amazing people I know. If you haven’t checked out her blog yet, DO IT!!!! Nicole says:
Hi guys! I’m Nicole and I blog over at The Marvelous Misadventures of a Foodie where I share my passion for food, recipes, running, photography and travel. I’m excited to be here guest-posting for Ari while she and Steve are in living it up in Maui this week! I am a huge fan of Ari’s blog and have had the pleasure of trying quite a few of her recipes first hand 🙂
Growing up we always had either ice cream or popsicles (or both!) in our freezer. I have lots of memories of playing outside or splashing around in the pool and coming in to enjoy a nice cold popsicle. They never failed me. They were my ultimate summer treat.
Now that I am older I can barely eat one without ending up in a sugar induced coma. I guess you could say my tastes have matured a bit over the years 😉 Summer wouldn’t be the same without popsicles so I like to make my own at home! Not only are they easy to make, but without even trying you get a healthier end result that is still indulgent!
These yogurt pops make a great afternoon snack or dessert. Better yet, they would make a pretty excellent breakfast – they are made out of yogurt after all 😉 The sweet mangos play really well with the tartness of the yogurt and the lime juice livens it up with that extra bit of freshness. Feel free to add more or less sweetener based on your taste. I used honey, but agave or any other liquid sweetener would work well too.
