My husband was incredulous when I told him I was working on a post for popsicles! He rolled his eyes and exclaimed, “You are going to do what?” I explained to him that the internet was exploding with popsicle recipes and they were all the rage. Plus, I had a great popsicle recipe I wanted to share. Of course, it only took one bite to convince him that these yummy Mixed Berry and Yogurt Popsicles are anything but the popsicles we grew up eating.
If you are like me, popsicles played a big part in your life growing up, especially in the summer. We almost always had purple, orange, or red stained lips and tongues from eating popsicles and they were our favorite treat on a hot summer day.
These Mixed Berry and Yogurt Popsicles are perfect for both the big kids and little kids in your home and they are now officially my favorite summer treat. Not only are they healthy and full of vitamins, think luscious mixed berries and flavorful yogurt, but they also come in at only 106 calories each. And, the best part, you can really use any fresh or frozen fruit you have. Think mangos, peaches, pineapple, strawberries, blueberries, blackberries, cherries, or even watermelon. They would all be great!
It’s not even officially summer yet but we have already had several days approaching 100 degrees this week. And, I can’t think of a better way to cool off or to usher summer in than eating one of these frozen delicious popsicles.
These Mixed Berry and Yogurt Popsicles couldn’t be easier to make and require only five ingredients: frozen mixed berries (or, whatever kind of fruit you like or have on hand), vanilla yogurt, vanilla extract, lemon juice and sugar. The only other thing you will need is popsicle molds. I found mine at the Dollar Tree store for only – you guessed it, one dollar!
Pour berries into a large bowl. Toss with the sugar and lemon juice. Let sit out for about 30 minutes for the berries to thaw and macerate.
Add to your food processor fitted with a steel blade or your blender, along with the yogurt and vanilla extract and puree until smooth.
Divide the mixture into 6 popsicle molds.
Freeze until firm, about 4 hours.
If you have trouble getting the popsicle out of the mold, try dipping the mold in lukewarm water for a few seconds.
