Make the Strawberry Basil Layer: Blend together the strawberries, basil and half of the honey or maple syrup. Initially, you may need to nudge the berries down into the blender until they liquify enough to blend smoothly.
Make the Yogurt Layer: In a small bowl mix the yogurt with the vanilla extract and the remaining honey or maple syrup.
Add to a popsicle mold: In your mold of choice, alternate layering a few spoonfuls of the strawberry and yogurt mixtures at a time. When full, use a knife or chopstick to swirl the layers together slightly.
Insert a stick into the center of each popsicle and place in the freezer until solid, about 4 to 6 hours, or overnight.
For easy release from the molds, allow the popsicles to stand at room temperature for a few minutes or run under warm water.
