Recipe: Yogurt Berry Popsicles

Cooking / Eating In

I recently added Zoku Molds to my kitchen gadget collection – as a result, I’ve made a few popsicle concoctions.  One of my favorite creations thus far has been these berry yogurt popsicles.  The Greek yogurt makes them taste super decadent (even though I use fat-free yogurt!), you can vary the berries based on what’s on sale or in season (I use frozen berries a lot), and you can also control the sugar/honey quantity.  Finally, the mint adds a refreshing highlight – and using it allows me to justify having a fledgling, floundering herb garden on my balcony. My only gripe is that my pop mold only makes 4 pops, though that is no fault of the recipe. What do you think – should I invest in another popsicle mold??

Anyway, if you’re also a homemade popsicle fan, give these a try. They are delicious!

Makes 4 large popsicles

roku-yogurt-berry-popsicles

  • 2/3 cups water
  • 2/3 cups granulated sugar (you can add less if you’re watching your sugar)
  • 2/3 cups mint leaves (loosely packed)
  • 3 cups mixed berries (frozen berries are a great option this time of year)
  • 1 cup plain yogurt (I used fat free Greek yogurt)
  • 5 teaspoons honey (you can add less if you’re watching your sugar)
  • 4 teaspoons lemon juice

1. To make the simple syrup, combine sugar, water and mint leaves in a small pot. Bring to a boil, stirring continuously to dissolve sugar. Simmer for 5 minutes. Set aside and cool completely. Remove mint leaves.

2. In a blender, combine mint simple syrup with all remaining ingredients. Blend until smooth. Pour into popsicle molds and allow to freeze 8 hours to overnight.
