"Mum is making the pops for me! See Rosie Didi! Fruits and Yogurt Popsicles for Pasta!"
I heard Pasta saying this to our house help/ her nanny. Needless to say, I was in the process of making her favorite Fruits and Yogurt Popsicles. This was enough to make me smile for this little effort of making ice lollies for my munchkin!
My little lady loves ice creams and ice pops and ended up requesting one or another almost every alternate day! When it comes to Pasta's requests, Mehebub is nothing but a nutcase. He just can't say no to his princes. Naturally, I have no option but to play the role of a strict mother! It is not that I don't pamper her, however, I try to limit it. For her typical food requests, I try to give her healthier treats.
Pasta loves Yogurt and/ or Curd based edibles for that matter. Given the summer is here already, I started incorporating Yogurt/ Curd into her diet. She mostly grabs Fruits and Yogurt Popsicles after returning from school or in the evening. This is actually my way of adding fruits and milk-product to her diet considering her preferences.
The Fruits and Yogurt Popsicles I make at home require hardly 15 minutes to combine the ingredients and a few hours to the fridge. I mostly use a few seasonal fruits along with honey and blend those with the Fresh Yogurt to make the Breakfast Popsicles. I make the ice pops using either Yogurt or Fresh Curd whichever is available. You can use either fresh Yogurt or Hug curd to make the Popsicles. I mostly make this once in a week using different flavors so that Pasta can grab her choice of popsicles whenever she wants. though she is restricted to a maximum of 2 pops in a day.
Yes, you read it right. Yogurt and curd are two different things. Though, both are dairy products but prepared differently and taste different as well. Even, nutritional values are different. Both can be prepared at home from culture. Yogurt is prepared by adding the bacterial cultures to the milk; which are lactobacillus bulgaris and streptococcus thermophilus. Curd on the other side is having lactic acid bacteria or lactobacillus.
