Strawberry orange yogurt popsicles

I said this before, but I'm going to shout it this time:

"DUDES! IT'S FUCKING STRAWBERRY SEASON!"

Guess what else it is? IT'S FUCKING POPSICLE SEASON!

This entire week it's been above 80 degrees. I haven't really had the chance to get out during the day (stupid job), but you can bet your ass I made some summer treats. Seattle is a funny place when the sun comes out. Bikinis on the sidewalk, homemade plastic pools, NO TRAFFIC! We don't see high temps around these parts very often, so people see the sun and go a little wacko. Yes, Seattle has a lot of water, but it's not warm water people!

These popsicles were actually supposed to be made with buttermilk. But you know what? That stuff goes bad So. Freakin. Fast. Sheesh! I think it would have been pretty rad, but I subbed in yogurt for the buttermilk. Yogurt pops are always a hit. They really do rock the hizzouse, but by golly I'm going to make my buttermilk pop dream become a reality! Someday........

  1. Yum. I might try these with Greek yogurt.

    Oh - I'm 99% sure you can freeze buttermilk! So if you're not going to use it right away, throw it in there and then thaw it when you're ready for it!
