Strawberry Tart Push-Ups

This recipe courageously created by Lauren.

The Goods
1 cup SCD yogurt
3/4 cup orange juice
1 ripened banana (black spots on skin)
1 sandwich bag frozen strawberries
1 tsp. vanilla

The Gettin’
1. Place all ingredients inside blender or food processor.
2. Pulse and mix until well combined.
3. Pour into Push-Up Containers.
4. Place Push-Ups into freezer and wait!

The Take
Remember push-up pops? Lauren loved to eat the Flintstone Push-Ups every summer from the ice-cream trucks or if lucky, mom’s freezer.  SCD attempt number one turned into something different, a smoothie like pop!  The orange wasn’t cutting it, so we just started throwing things in.  They are a nice strawberry tart relief from the heat.  Next time we’ll try yogurt with fresh mango and OJ to bring back the old summer Flintstone fling.  Oh and we might run the mix through the ice-cream machine before popping it into the Push-Ups.
