Yogurt-Berry Pops from Katie Workman / themom100.com

Have you succumbed to the call of the popsicle mold?  They are all over the place, and I resisted them for a while.  But then I got them as a gift, and I am now embracing the world of frozen pops.

These yogurt berry pops were my first foray.  I made a mashed up speed jam with a bunch of different berries, and sweetened some yogurt with honey.  Then I layered the two mixtures into the molds, and really that was that.  The next time I stuck a fork into the mixture and swirled them them a bit, so they looked more dappled and the flavors were more intermingled.

But you know, there’s a learning curve on everything.  And these were all pretty fine.

I absolutely positively would consider these breakfast.  I also would absolutely positively would consider them a snack, perfect for any time of day.

Yogurt-Berry Pops

A perfect summer treat, with just the right combination of tart, sweet and creamy.
Yield: 8 People
Prep Time 15 minutes
Cook Time 15 minutes
Freezing Time 6 hours
Total Time 6 hours 30 minutes

Ingredients

  • 2 cups berries of your choice such as whole raspberries, blackberries or blueberries or strawberries, or a combination, roughly chopped, rinsed
  • 2 tablespoons sugar
  • 1 ¼ cups plain Greek yogurt
  • 2 tablespoons milk
  • 3 tablespoons honey

Directions

  • For the berry “jam’: Put the berries in a small heavy saucepan. Sprinkle the sugar over them and mash together with a fork until the berries are coarsely mashed and juicy. Heat the berry-sugar mixture over medium-low heat, stirring frequently, until thickened, about 15 minutes.
  • To make the popsicles: Stir the yogurt, milk and honey together until blended. Spoon enough of the yogurt into the molds to fill about one-fifth. Add a layer of berries, then yogurt, then berries, then yogurt up to the fill line. Use a butter knife to swirl the yogurt and berries together but don’t over-swirl. Put the popsicle handles into the mold and freeze until solid. This can take from 4 to 6 hours, depending the type of mold you use.
  • Remove and enjoy.
