ever since i made this frozen cheesecake, my head has been spinning with possible popsicle combinations. the options are really limitless. i wanted to whip up something with berries since they are loaded with antioxidants. i added the greek yogurt (full fat, full of protein) to pose as the "cream." together you've got yourself something tasty + healthy on a stick. rachel gave me these popsicle molds years ago and i'm ashamed to say this is the first time said rocket-awesomeness has been experienced!
i made them originally for our fourth of july party, which sadly got rained out. one of my favorite girl friends christy and her son jack came over yesterday morning. after a few hours of catching up and the on-set of tiny attention spans fading, i broke out the rocket pops! matilda and jack loved the frozen goodness and we didn't have any trouble finishing ours either.
i'll never forget sitting on christy's porch pre-motherhood and talking about babies and baby names. here we are six years later with two babies of our own sitting on my front porch eating popsicles.
