Happy Fourth of July! Today, I am celebrating with a frozen treat that is easy to make and on the healthier side too.
Blueberries and diced strawberries are combined with a honey-sweetened yogurt mixture in popsicle molds, then placed in the freezer until solid, about four hours to overnight. It is the perfect way to use up extra fresh berries and such a refreshing snack for all summer long.
A Few Tips
I kept the honey at 2 tablespoons and it was perfect for us. Taste the yogurt mixture before pouring into the molds and adjust the amount to taste. If the honey is too thick to whisk into the milk and yogurt, heat briefly in a microwave or on the stove until just runny enough to mix.
The amount of berries can also be adjusted to taste. I alternated adding the berries and yogurt to the molds to make sure bits of berries are found in every bite.
You can skip the vanilla extract and simply use vanilla-flavored Greek yogurt if desired.
Gently tap the popsicle molds on the counter after assembling to help remove any air bubbles and disperse the yogurt mixture.
This recipe makes enough for 6 popsicles using this stainless steel popsicle mold (Amazon Link). The berries and yogurt mixture will yield closer to 10-12 popsicles for those using smaller molds or paper cups.
Freeze the popsicles until frozen through and well-chilled, 4 hours to overnight. Serve immediately after removing from the freezer.
