Kuwait is hot. Enough said. Today it was a little over a 100 degrees and it's only going to get hotter the closer we get to summer.

Since Kuwait runs on a Sunday-Thursday work week, it means today (Saturday) is our "quiet day" to hang out at home before the busy work week starts again. My family and I spent the afternoon doing yard work and then cooling off at the community pool.

Today's hot weather inspired me to make a batch of Homemade Strawberry Lemonade Popsicles. These popsicles are tangy, sweet, creamy and oh so yummy. Plus I love that the recipe is easy and quick to make. The original version of this recipe comes from Annie's Eats. I ended up tweaking it a little bit. Mostly I changed it by adding frozen strawberries, doubling the batch, and adding a little bit of sugar to combat the tartness of the strawberries. Since I doubled the batch, I did end up with some extra popsicle mixture, but I decided to pour it into a ziploc container to eat later like ice cream. ;)

Strawberry Lemonade Popsicles 

4 cups frozen strawberries
1/2 low-fat greek yogurt
2 lemons, zest and juice
4 tablespoons of sugar

Combine the strawberries, yogurt, lemon juice, lemon zest, and sugar in a food processor or blender. Blend until this mixture is all smooth and delicious looking. It will look and taste just like strawberry sorbet. Pour this mixture into a popsicle mold, freeze it and then enjoy!

Oh and in case you're wondering... My happy moment today was watching my little girl swim in the "big pool" all by herself!
