Strawberries 'n' Cream Pie Ice Pops-
Craving a breezy summer treat? These five-ingredient freezer pops taste like strawberry cream pie on a stick.

10 Servings | Prep 15 min (plus freezing) | Cook 20 min
Ingredients:
* 3 cups fresh strawberries (about 1 pound), chopped
* 1/2 cup sugar
* 3/4 cup plain greek yogurt
* 1 teaspoon fresh lemon juice
* One 6-ounce store-bought graham cracker crust, crumbled into coarse pieces

Directions:
1. In a medium saucepan, bring the strawberries and sugar to a simmer over medium heat. Lower the heat and reduce until thick and jamlike, about 20 minutes.
2. Using a food processor, puree the berry mixture, then transfer to a bowl. Refrigerate until cold. Stir in the yogurt and lemon juice.
3. Fold the graham cracker crumbs into the yogurt mixture until half blended. Spoon the mixture into an 8- to 10-count 2.5-ounce ice pop mold and freeze for 30 minutes. Insert ice pop sticks and freeze until solid, at least 4 hours.
