Strawberry Banana popsicle

Who doesn't like popsicles? that too in this hot summer season.
My kids love them. Actually they prefer popsicles to ice cream :) Even I love them. Ice cream is a bit too sweet for me. I guess, my li'l ones have got my taste buds ;)
Its fun to see them run around with these popsicles in their hands...dripping it all over the house...well, cleaning up the mess isn't that fun, though :)
Mango smoothie is my li'l one's favorite flavor. I like the strawberry banana flavor, may be because of the tart.

This is an easy summer treat that pleases everyone...especially the kids and even the little kids in us too :)
Make it fancy, by alternately layering the strawberry and banana mixture.
Or, if in a hurry, blend everything together, still you have a delicious treat on hand.

Here is the recipe: Adapted from here

You'll need:

Strawberries: 1 lb (washed and hulled)
Lemon juice: 1 tbsp
Sugar: 3 tbsp
Banana: 2 nos (mashed)
Yogurt: 1/2 cup
Vanilla extract: 1 tsp

How to make:

Blend strawberries, 2 tbsp of sugar and lemon juice in a blender until smooth.
Pour half of the strawberry mixture into the molds, ie; filling about 1/3 of the molds. And put it in the freezer for a few min.
Meanwhile,in a bowl, mix mashed banana, yogurt and the vanilla extract until combined.
Pour the banana mixture into the molds, filling molds 2/3 full.
Pour the remaining strawberry mixture on the top.
Freeze at least 5-6 hrs or overnight, until completely frozen.
Once frozen, show the molds under warm running water to get the popsicles out easily.
