This time of year nothing is more refreshing than a popsicle, especially when it's one of these naturally sweet Strawberry Yogurt Ice Pops. As we all know, you can't possibly make popsicles and not want to share them with friends. So why not have a party to share the love….and at the same time do some good.
For the past 13 years, KitchenAid and Susan G. Komen have teamed up to encourage families across the country to Cook for the Cure, raising awareness and over $9.5 million for the fight against breast cancer. You can participate in this great cause by hosting your own dinner party, pot luck, BBQ or any kind of get together. Can you think of a way that's more fun to make a difference?
For last year's Cook for the Cure I made six of these Pink Pound Cakes. This year I made 4 dozen pink Strawberry Yogurt Ice Pops.
