Roasted Strawberry and Yogurt Popsicles

I just got a set of new popsicle molds (you can buy them here) for our anniversary and I've been dying to make some popsicles! I had some strawberries and yogurt and thought I'd give this recipe a try. Now it was a good popsicle, but it wasn't my favorite. I have a pretty good sweet tooth and this just wasn't sweet enough. And I think that I've realized that I'm not the biggest fan of frozen yogurt, like real yogurt that is frozen, because I do love me some fro yo. I don't know if I'd make this specific recipe again but it was a good try.

Roasted Strawberry and Yogurt Popsicles (Adapted from this recipe)

- 2 1/2 cups strawberries, sliced

- 1 1/2 teaspoon sugar
- dash of salt
- 1 tablespoon + 1/3 cup honey
- 1 cup Greek yogurt
- 1 tablespoon lemon juice

1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit. Line a rimmed baking sheet with parchment paper. In a medium bowl, gently toss berries with the sugar, a dash of sea salt and 1 tablespoon honey. Pour the berries onto the prepared baking sheet and arrange the berries in a single layer. Roast for 30 minutes, stirring halfway, or long enough for the berry juices to thicken but not burn (watch the edges in particular).
2. While the fruit is roasting, blend together the Greek yogurt and lemon juice in a medium bowl. Mix in honey to taste, until it is barely sweet enough for your liking (add more lemon juice if you want tart popsicles).
3. Let the berries cool for at least ten minutes, then scrape the berries and all of their juices into the bowl of yogurt. Use a big spoon to gently fold the mixture together (for a marbled effect, do not mix thoroughly).
4. Use the spoon to transfer the yogurt blend into the popsicle mould and freeze for at least four hours. When you’re ready to pop out the popsicles, run warm water around the outsides of the moulds for about ten seconds and gently remove the popsicles. Enjoy immediately.
