As the sweltering summer approached my kids started rejoicing in anticipation of the vacations. I thought at least the scorching sun brings good news for someone!! Summer vacations are the perfect time to bond, reconnect and relax with the family without the tension of school, lunchbox, studies and assignments.

I have been toiling hard revamping our small terrace garden which has come up very nicely and in the evenings with the cool breeze blowing we bond over some summer time thirst quenchers, board games and Uno. My early morning tea and newspaper ritual has shifted to this small patch of greenery and I can swear it’s the best time of the day❤️

 

 

On hottest days nothing sounds more appealing than an icy cold popsicle. They are always a hit whether store bought or homemade, young or old. With the temperatures soaring here these summertime icy treats are a staple in my household now. The mommy in me always makes me prepare these in my own kitchen with the freshest ingredients available be it with fruit juices, smoothies, ice creams, sodas or just plain yogurt.

 

 

These yogurt Parfait Popsicles are made from thick, creamy, luscious Greek yogurt which is available easily in one of the supermarkets. Layer the popsicle mould with sweet thick vanilla flavoured yogurt, freshly cut seasonal fruits like mangoes, blueberries, kiwis, strawberries,pomegranate etc and a layer of healthy granola ( a baked mix of oats, dry fruits, seeds, honey or maple syrup ) which gives a lovely crunch to the popsicle. If Greek yogurt is not available then strain normal homemade yogurt in a muslin cloth and keep it hanging for 2-3 hours to get thick creamy yogurt.
