Ingredients:

Makes 12 pops

3 cups fruit (1 ½ cups of blueberries & 1 ½ cups of strawberries)

4th july

Directions:

  1. In the blender combine fruit and desired amount of honey, blend until smooth. If using multiple fruits, do them in separate batches.
  2. Using a spoon or spatula, press the puree through a fine mesh sieve to remove any skins or seeds. You should end up with about 1 total cup of fruit puree. Set aside.
  3. Whisk together the yogurt and lemon juice. Set aside.
  4. Lay out your fruit puree(s), yogurt, cups and Popsicle sticks.
  5. Alternating between the puree and yogurt, layer evenly into the 12 cups. Keeping in mind that the yogurt is the base and the fruit puree(s) are an accent.
  6. Gently swirl each cup using a knife to create a mixed and marbled texture
  7. Freeze for 30-45 minutes, or until solid enough to hold the Popsicle stick. Insert stick and freeze 3-4 hours until frozen solid.
  8. To enjoy, tear top of paper cup and unwrap until pop comes out easily. Use the cup as a rest for your pop when you need a brain freeze break. Or, dip the cup in warm water and gently pull the pop out.
