Greek Yogurt Creamsicles

Today I tried making something new: a Greek yogurt popsicle! I've seen recipes like this all over the internet, so I thought I'd try it out. It's super-simple, takes about 5 minutes to put together, and tastes great.

1 container Greek yogurt (I used Dannon Light & Fit in the peach flavor)
3-4 strawberries
1 packet Stevia sweetener 
1 paper cup (except for glass, any kind of cup would be fine)
1 popsicle stick (I actually used a plastic Ikea knife since we happened to be out of popsicle sticks)

1. Chop up the strawberries into small pieces. The tinier you can chop them, the better, since they'll be easier to mash up.
2. In a small bowl, combine strawberries and Stevia packet. Use a fork to mash the two together into a jam-like consistency. 
3. Spoon about half of the Greek yogurt into the paper cup. Add about half of the strawberry mixture to the top of the yogurt. Add the rest of the yogurt over the strawberries and top it off with the remaining strawberry mixture.
4. Insert the popsicle stick in the middle of the popsicle and freeze.
5. When you are ready to eat the popsicle, remove it from the freezer and hold the cup under running hot water for a minute or two until the popsicle slides out easily.
