Today I’m sharing with you a recipe I made and shared at The Mother Huddle website. It’s that time of year again to drag out the ice-cream maker and whip up some goodness with strawberries, kiwi’s and limes. Strawberries are always a favorite at our house, my son loves them most. I constantly am thinking of ways to use strawberries like these healthy strawberry yogurt pops or these strawberry cupcakes since we almost always have them in the refrigerator or freezer. I got the idea to make this yogurt from watching the foodnetwork . I made the strawberry yogurt my own by adding kiwi and lime and it gave it a fresher more tangy taste. The fruity yogurt was perfect after a heavy meal since it’s light tasting. If you do decide to make it this recipe make sure you taste the puree to adjust for sweetness. I like things sour but when I first tasted the puree it was really sour, so in came the addition of honey to my recipe. If I would have had fresh mint or basil I would have put that into the fruit as it was macerating to give it another layer of flavor and depth.

Every once and a while I’m lucky enough to be nominated by some fellow food bloggers for blog awards. I’m not great at following up immediately since it’s difficult to brag on oneself but I do want to thank these ladies for thinking of me and giving me the awards. First my friend Amy over at Savory Moments gave me the “Versatile Blogger Award”.
