If you prefer to use a non-dairy yogurt for this recipe, simply replace the yogurt with a non-dairy alternative. There are a number of excellent choices from soy to coconut and almond. You can find a list of vegan yogurt choices here.
- ¾ cup of strawberries*
- ½ cup Greek Style yogurt (plain or strawberry)
- 2 tbsp. honey
- Ice cream sticks (1cm wide)
- 1 blender
- 1 measuring cup with spout
*You can use fresh or frozen strawberries, depending on the season and availability.
- Blend all 3 ingredients until soft and smooth. (Adjust the amount of honey depending on how sweet you want the mixture to be. If you are using strawberry yogurt, you may need to use less honey.)
- Securely fasten the top and bottom halves of the ice ball mold together.
- First, transfer the blended yogurt mixture into the measuring cup. This will allow pouring into the ice ball mold easier and less messy.
- Fill each sphere through the whole at the top with the blended mixture. It’s alright to fill the mixture near the top since the yogurt mixture will not expand as much water.
- Insert ice cream sticks through each hole. Gently wipe off any excess that may have spilled out when inserting the sticks.
- Freeze thoroughly for about 4 to 5 hours.
- When ready to serve, remove the ice ball mold from the freezer, and leave on the counter for 3 to 5 minutes.
- Carefully remove the strawberry yogurt ice balls from the mold and serve.
