Strawberries and Cream Popsicles

Ingredients:

1 cup milk

1/4 cup heavy whipping cream

1 cup strawberry yogurt

2 Tbsp Clabber Girl cornstarch

1/4 cup sugar

1 Tbsp strawberry extract

3 cups fresh strawberries, chopped

Directions:

Add the milk, heaving whipping cream, and strawberry yogurt to a medium mixing bowl. Then add cornstarch and whisk together until smooth. Pour mixture into a saucepan and add the strawberry extract. Slowly bring the mixture to a boil, while continuously whisking. Continue whisking for about 4 to 5 minutes once mixture begins to boil, to thicken. Remove from heat and set aside and cool a bit.

While cream mixture is cooling, this is when I chop my strawberries. Place the chopped strawberries in a bowl.

Then divide half the cream mixture. Add one half the cream mixture to the strawberry bowl. Stir the strawberries and cream together. Set aside.

Use the other half of the cream mixture and pour a little in each popsicle mold, saving some to top off all the molds at the end.

Then fill molds to the top with the strawberry/cream mixture. Make sure to press down on the filled molds with a spoon, or insert a knife to get any air bubbles out. I banged the mold set on the counter some too. This will help the mixture settle and get out any bubbles. Add more strawberry mixture to the molds as necessary. Lastly top off each mold with the remaining cream mixture. Put the maker top on and insert popsicle sticks. Freeze overnight and remove from popsicle molds to serve.
