Perfect Summer Popsicles

Houston, we're having a heat wave! It has been in the triple digits the past few days, and today the high is 108. Insanity! Growing up in California, you either opened or closed the windows depending on the temperature, and we thought it was shorts weather when the mid 60's rolled in after a rainy winter. In Boise, the summer comes with a vengeance and anyone without air conditioning (aka Jeff and me) is in big trouble. Our window units weren't ready for use until yesterday, so we've been sweating through the past few days and searching for any relief. Last night, that came in the form of delicious popsicles. My friend sent us these molds as a house warming gift and it was about time we christened them. The great thing about popsicles is that they can be made with pretty much any combination of fruits and they're super easy.

Strawberry Banana Chocolate Popsicles
(Makes 6 pops)

1 ripe banana, diced
10 strawberries, hulled and diced
1 cup almond milk
1/2 cup plain yogurt
2 tablespoons agave or honey
1 teaspoon vanilla
1/4 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips

Blend banana, strawberries, milk, yogurt, sweetener, and vanilla until smooth.
Pour mixture into popsicle molds, leaving 1/4 inch or so on top.
Divide chocolate chips among the molds.
Freeze for four hours or until completely set.
