Strawberry Yogurt Stripe Popsicles!

I'm not the first person to make striped popsicles or strawberry yogurt ones. I just wanted to make something with the fresh strawberries that are starting to come in. I made enough for 2 popsicles, each popsicle mold holds a little more than 1/3 cup of liquid so I made about 1/3 of a cup of each mixture.

nonfat plain yogurt
vanilla extract
milk (to thin yogurt slightly)
mix all ingredients together to taste

chopped strawberries (I removed the hulls and white parts) Use a few more than you think you need.
salt and pepper (just a little to enhance the flavor)
Allow ingredients to sit together while mixing the yogurt (to allow flavors to meld and juices to flow slightly) then blend all the ingredients with a blender.

Add a spoonful of one mixture to each mold avoiding the sides of the mold and allow to set in the freezer (about 20 minutes depending on freezer temperature etc). Only the top needs to be firm. Continue alternating strawberry and yogurt each time. Insert the sticks after the last addition. The layers should still be soft enough to insert the stick easily. These would probably taste better with the strawberry and yogurt mixed, but they wouldn't be as pretty. Add blueberries too for a patriotic popsicle.
