I made these delicious frozen strawberry tomato popsicles as part of a sponsored post for Socialstars #WalmartProduce
I love tomatoes! They are such a versatile fruit, er vegetable, or is it fruit? Whatever you want to call it whether fruit or vegetable, tomatoes are yummy almost any way you want to prepare them.
One of my challenges as a dad is finding and getting the freshest of produce can be even harder. We do so much of our shopping at Walmart because of their great prices, but their produce is awesome. Not only that…..they guarantee it! Recently I was there getting groceries and I came across these great looking tomatoes and could not wait to get home and whip up a fresh recipe.
My wife has been on a crusade to get me to eat all my veggies. That can be a little challenging, but I’m finding creative ways to get them in. She saw the tomatoes and said I should make popsicles, after all it’s so HOT outside. Tomato popsicles, you heard me right! I decided to really test this fruit theory and see if they would be good, after all people make tomato chutney, tomato jam, these items are slightly sweet, so why not popsicles?
If you read our blog you also know that my wife is rather picky about what kind of products, ingredients go into our food. She buys organic when the price allows, and likes everything we eat to be as all-natural as possible! I grabbed some strawberries, organic tomatoes, (Walmart has an excellent selection), plain greek yogurt, and some agave for sweetness. (You could also use raw honey too!) I place all the ingredients into my blender saving some of the strawberries and tomatoes to chunk up and put into the popsicles.
Let me tell you the popsicles were DELICIOUS!! You can choose to skin your tomatoes first if you don’t want the skins, and add in more sweetener if you like, but on a warm summer day, they really hit the spot AND I’m getting some veggies in my diet and so does my little one! I hope you enjoy this recipe, I know I did!
