I love popsicles and although we are not in  summer right now , this last time have become much more because I found very good recipes.

The popsicles are simple and delicious and you can  have on hand at any time and are also healthier than other ice cream are purchased.

The basis of these is Greek yogurt (love) and  lemon and raspberries, are super-good!

Helados de limonada, yogurt natural y frambuesas

Ya se que estamos en Invierno en el hemisferio sur (aunque salvo el frio no se nota)
Pero generalmente hago helados de postre (o como snack) todo el año.
El último tiempo he encontrado deliciosas recetas así que publico algunas.
Estos son sumamente deliciosos, saludables, sin preservantes y fáciles de hacer!


1/2 taza de azúcar granulada
1 cucharada de ralladura de limón
1/2 taza de jugo de limón (2 limones)
1 3/4 taza de yogurt griego o natural
1 taza de frambuesas congeladas o frescas 
(algunas partidas en dos)


Primero que nada distribuir las frambuesas en los moldes para helados.
Tambien se puede echar un poco de la mezcla luego las frambuesas y terminar con frambuesas.
En un bowl mediano,mezclar el azúcar con la ralladura de limón.
Revolver la ralladura de limon con un tenedor hasta que el azucar este impregnada con el limón.
Agregar el yogurt y el jugo de limón.
Mezclar bien.
Repartir en los moldes de helados. Cubrir con aluminio y agregar los palitos de helados (Yo uso esos de madera porque los plásticos no son muy buenos)
Congelar de 6 a 24 horas.
Para sacar de los moldes, pasarlos por un poco de agua corriendo,
Normalmente los hago en la noche y se pueden usar al día siguiente.
