Ingredients

4  
Strawberries (greens removed)
1⁄2 cup
Silk Vanilla Almondmilk (unsweetened, or regular.. up to you)
5 1⁄3 ounces
Silk Strawberry Dairy-Free Yogurt Alternative (or sub strawberry Greek yogurt)
1  
small banana
3⁄4 cups
acai berry juice (or sub your favorite juice)
1⁄4 cup
organic cane sugar (or sub coconut sugar)
6  
Strawberries (greens removed)
1⁄2  
small roasted beet*
1⁄4 cup
organic strawberry jam

Notes

*to roast a small beet, preheat oven to 425 degrees. Peel the beet then wrap in aluminum foil with a teaspoon of olive oil. Bake for 45 minutes, then let cool in the fridge before adding to popsicles!

Instructions

  1. Dice the 4 strawberries, then add equal amounts into the bottom of each popsicle cup.
  2. In a high powered blender (I use a Blendtec), combine the almondmilk, yogurt, and banana. Blend until smooth. 
  3. Pour the mixutre into the popsicle mold, filling each cup up 1/3rd of the way to the top. (There will be a little extra leftover mixture in the blender, but that's good!) 
  4. Put the popsicles in the freezer for an hour. 
  5. Meanwhile, do not clean out the blender. Leave the leftover mixture and then add in 3/4 cup acai juice, 1/4 cup sugar, and 6 additional strawberries. Blend until smooth. 
  6. Once the bottom white layer is thoroughly frozen, pour on the 2nd strawberry layer, filling each cup about 2/3rds of the way to the top.  (There will be a little extra leftover mixture in the blender, but that's good!)
  7. Put the posicles in the freezer for an hour. 
  8. Meanwhile, do not clean out the blender. Leave the leftover mixture and then add in 1/2 of the small roasted beet plus 1/4 cup strawberry jam. Blend until smooth. 
  9. Once the 2nd strawberry layer is thoroughly frozen, pour on the darkest top layer, filling each cup all the way to the top. 
  10. Put the popsicles in the freezer for two hours... then, devour!

ALTERNATIVELY, if you don't need/want the layers, just blend all the ingredients together at the start!
