strawberry wasabi peas pops


What business does a baking blog have to be making popsicles??

Remember how I started off my last post saying the week felt long? Well, scratch that, this last week felt twice as long! I was sick! Stomach flu. I am finally better, but still not in the mood to be in my kitchen, spreading germs to all my baking and cooking supplies and utensils. But I did want to make something that utilized the strawberries I bought a week ago. And since I needed to start eating yogurt (to help replenish intestinal health), why not make yogurt pops?

And, in case you haven’t tried it, wasabi peas are perfect for ice cream and yogurt toppings. Hope you enjoy!

Strawberry Yogurt Pops (with wasabi peas)

A pint of strawberries, hulled, chopped

1/3 cup sugar

pinch of salt

2 teaspoons lemon juice

1 and 1/3 cup plain yogurt

1/2 cup wasabi peas, crushed or chopped coarsely (optional)

Macerate strawberries and sugar in a bowl for about 30 minutes. Add to blender with with salt, lemon juice, and yogurt. Transfer to a bowl and fold in the wasabi peas with a spatula. Pour carefully into a 10-count pop ice mold. If using wooden sticks, add only after partially frozen, about two hours. Let freeze for a few more hours, or overnight. Unmold and sprinkle with more crushed wasabi peas, if desired.

    Yes. I think. But I know not everyone is crazy about it, so try at your own risk. 😉

    I’m glad you are feeling better! I would never have thought about this combo, but I bet it’s delicious! I can see the watermelon combo too!

      Thanks, Julie. It’s my first day back to work in a week. Yes, I thought about using pistachio instead, so pistachio I think would be a good substitute if one weren’t too keen on wasabi peas. Hope that you are having a good day!

    Wow! A couple of months ago I tried a wasabi ice cream with chocolate cake in a Japanese restaurant… It was GOOD! So i’m guessing this wasabi combination is also good!!! I love the photo 🙂
    PS I was just scrolling down your FB thinking ohhhh you’re making me so hungry, so I thought, why don’t just go back into your blog and torture myself some more 😉

      Mmmm, wasabi ice cream with chocolate anything sounds like a good combination, too! I like wasabi with strawberry as a flavor combo, and wasabi peas are nice and crunchy so they make a great ice cream topper!
      Congrats on your new blog!

        Now I want to go back to the restaurant for that dessert 😉 Thank you, I know it’s a bit of a girly blog (it’s actually more girlier looking than what I actually care for!) but still… 🙂
