Why We Love Strawberry Shortcake Popsicles

I remember as a kid, one of the best parts about summer was the Ice Cream Man.  We would hang around outside hoping to hear the jack-in-the-box music so we could run inside and beg for change to buy overpriced popsicles and other frozen treats.  More often than not, my choice was the cookie crumb-coated frozen Strawberry Shortcake Popsicle dessert bar!

The appeal of that magical white truck changed though, as I became a parent.  My stomach would drop when I would hear the ethereal tune, praying that the kids wouldn’t hear it because neither of us would have cash on hand. #parentfail

Today I’m tipping my hat to my old favorite and sharing a Strawberry Shortcake Popsicle recipe

How To Make Strawberry Shortcake Popsicles

(full printable recipe at the end of this post)

Simply gather vanilla yogurt, fresh strawberries, Nabisco NILLA Wafers, and a bit of honey and in a few hours, you’ll have a cold, yummy snack that will make them forget all about the ice cream truck!

Crushed NILLA Wafers will represent the shortcake.  I love my small food processor, but if you don’t have one, just place the cookies in a resealable plastic bag and crush them with a rolling pin or glass jar.

I won’t tell if you sneak a few cookies to snack on right out of the box 😉

You will need about 1 cup of crushed NILLA Wafers divided into two half-cups.

Using a food processor or blender, puree the strawberries and set them aside.  My strawberries were nice and sweet all on their own, but if your strawberries are not sweet enough for you, add ¼ cup honey to the pureed strawberries.

Add 1/2 cup of crushed NILLA Wafers and honey to yogurt and stir to combine.

For these fro-yo pops, I used 5-ounce paper cups, but you could also use a popsicle mold.  The 3-ounce paper cups would be another option if you’d prefer smaller popsicles.

Simply fill each cup about 1/4 full with the yogurt mixture, then added a little bit of the pureed strawberries.  Top with another layer of yogurt mixture leaving about 1/4-1/2 inch from the top of the cup for topping.

Using the remaining 1/2 cup crushed NILLA Wafers, sprinkle crushed cookies to the top of each cup, insert a wooden popsicle stick and freeze for at least 4-5 hours.
