Strawberry Swirl Pops

You may have noticed that I have been making a lot of strawberry recipes and this is because I have stocked up on them from the Dollar Tree :O) I was searching online for a strawberry yogurt pop and this recipe kept coming up. The presentation is beautiful. I don't have pop molds like these shown in the picture but I do have bathroom cups (I got a box of 200 for $2.99 at Kroger) and Popsicle sticks (which are also available at Dollar Tree in the craft aisle) and that works just as well and it is inexpensive. Strawberries are my favorite berries, I have loved them since my grandma first took me to a strawberry u-pick patch. They are juicy and the seeds don't bother me like other berries (blackberries, but I still eat them). I <3 strawberry everything, you will see lots more strawberry recipes from me. I used Splenda in place of the sugar and I got 6 pops for half of the recipe. Here is a recipe for homemade push-pops, sounds like a good recipe for kids of all ages.

This is not my photo ^

These are sweet tart and a little icy. Lemony and very strawberry. I really like them and I will make them again.
