Strawberry White Chocolate Popsicles

Happy Monday everyone! In particular to me, because it is going to be my happiest monday in a while.
I’m back to school in a week, so I’ll have to say goodbye to my early morning runs and blogging, which will be now replaced with homework and exams. That’s so cool, right? #no

But don’t be sad guys, that doesn’t mean I’m going to give up writing here and reading all your blogs. Not at all. I love working on my blog, and I adore reading each one of your blogs and commenting and stuff… and I’m not going to stop doing it. I’ve just got to find the time to cook, shoot, write, read, comment, pin (because I love pinning, I’m not planning on giving that up either!), train for a half-marathon, and get good grades… it’s going to be hard, I tell you. But I hope at least it is worth it.

Why am I telling you all of this? Well, even though I’ll keep on posting, I won’t be able to spend here the amount of hours I’m used to… I just wanted to let you know that. And you’d better expect a lot of easy, quick recipes, which will be all I will have time to cook.

Like this one, which is so easy that I shouldn’t be allowed to call it a recipe. Two ingredients and two minutes of hands-on time are all that is needed to make these lovely refreshing treats. Yeah, refreshing: I’m not planning on giving up summer cooking for the moment either. I love summer too much and I don’t really care if I have to eat these pops under my blankets… They’re way too good to miss them!
Don’t worry anyways, I have a lot of cozy fall recipes coming for you soon… I do love fall baking, it’s just that I prefer frozen treats!
Back to these pops: they are a nice treat to have when the craving for something sweet hits. Granted, they’re not the healthiest guys in town, but they certainly could be much worse… But the easy clean-up (just one bowl!) and their deliciousness certainly make up for that!
I can foresee these being my afternoon snack on hectic exam weeks… which I hope that makes the whole back to school business a little bit easier.

And here’s the recipe, which is shamefully easy:
{Makes 4 popsicles, but it depends on the size of your moulds}
500 gr. strawberry greek yogurt
75 gr. white chocolate
Melt chocolate in the microwave (stir every 30 seconds or else it will burn!). Wait for it to cool a bit and then add yogurt. Stir until it’s fully mixed and spoon mixture on popsicle moulds. Freeze until solid..
I used full-fat greek yogut. When it comes to already flavoured versions, I prefer that over fat-free versions, which have a lot of nasty preservatives, sweeteners and thickeners that I do not want in my popsicles. I think that a little bit of extra fat is better than all that artificial junk, but you’re free to use your favourite version, it will work fine anyways!
And that’s all, I hope you’ve all had a wonderful weekend!
Consuelo x

    Ooh, I would’ve never thought of combining flavored yogurt and white chocolate! That’s so cool! And I hear you completely on the blogging and school thing. I used to spend way more time on my photos and adding extra recipe links on the bottom of my posts until school started. Then its like, volleyball and school take up a lot of time! As does commenting and blogging and you have to pick priorities. I look forward to your quick posts and recipes and I hope you know we readers appreciate all the time you put into your posts!

      It’s truly a nice combo!
      Yes, I know it’s going to be hard, but I kind of like all that I’m doing now, so I hope it makes everything easier… let’s see!
      Thanks for your kind words, Mary Frances! x

    I really know what you mean. It can be very hard having time for cooking, shooting, blogging, doing sports AND go to school. I hope you’ll have enough time for a lot of blogging – I always look forward to your posts 😉
    You are going to run a half marathon? Wow – that is so cool! You go girl!

      It’s going to be exhauting but I hope I can cope with it!

    Consuelo, qué alegría volver a leerte después de las vacaciones. Nos encantan tus posts, son tan naturales y divertidos…
    Los polos que nos traes nos parecen maravillosos, por los ingredientes y por lo sencillos que son de hacer.
    Esperamos seguir “viéndote” por aquí, a pesar de la falta de tiempo que los estudios implican.
    Un besazo enorme, preciosa.

    Consuelo, these popsicles look fantastic! I don’t always like white chocolate, but I think I would love white chocolate popsicles. And I completely agree that a little extra fat in Greek yogurt can be so worthwhile. It results in such a richer texture and consistency.

    Good luck with your schoolwork and studies!

    • Reply Consuelo Morcillo September 10, 2013 at 10:57 pm

      I surely prefer fat over all those nasty additives! I’m so glad you like them 😉 And thank you so much, Jamie! x

    Thank you for the easy tasty recipe! I wish you the best this year in school. I know what you mean about slowing blogging down with school. My blog life as come to an abrupt slow down as I teach my children at home. We started back a few weeks ago.

    • Reply Consuelo Morcillo September 10, 2013 at 11:00 pm

      That’s such a fantastic work, but I think it has to be time-consuming, isn’t it?
      Have a nice day, Kathy! x

    I love how simple these are, they sound fantastic! And (sort of) healthy too… Well, “sort of healthy” is better than most alternatives! Good luck with back to school :-)

      Definitely healthier than packaged stuff, right? 😉 Thank you so so much! x
