Strawberry Mango Peach Rocket Smoothsicles (Popsicles)

Our family loves yogourt smoothies - usually for breakfast or ocassionally as a snack. We also love frozen popsicles on a hot summer day. This easy recipe combines both of these treats into one - the "Smoothsicle". The ones we made today incorparated the fruit on hand - mangos, peaches and strawberries and vanilla yogourt but use whatever you have in your kitchen.

We also used these cute rocketship shaped popsicle molds. They come in a set of six and are easy to use as they come with an easy to use base. This recipe easily makes 12 rocket smoothsicles but ultimately yield will depend on the size of your moulds. But any left overs make a great smoothie!

2 cups vanilla yogourt
1 cup frozen peaches
1 cup frozen mangos
1/2 cup fresh strawberries, roughly chopped
1. Place yogourt, peaches and mangos in blender and puree till smooth.
2. Add strawberries and pulse until incorporated but still chunky.
3. Pour mixture into moulds and freeze till solid.
