Fruit & Yogurt Popsicles

by Erin

These red white and blue fruit yogurt popsicles are the perfect summer treat. And they are a healthier option too.

Fruit & Yogurt Popsicles

With the summer heat turning on the oven is not desirable. Most of us would prefer lying by a pool in a bathing suit, but sometimes the dessert cravings hit and they must be addressed. Fruit & yogurt popsicles to the rescue! These popsicles have three layers of pureed fruit and Greek yogurt which means they are bikini-friendly. The white layer was my favorite part because it tasted like cheesecake! Next time I might even out the layers to get more of that layer. Prepare these tonight and they’ll be the perfect treat for your Independence Day festivities tomorrow.

In non-food news, I’m more strapped for cash than usual this month after three bachelorette parties. I hope to be able to continue whipping up fun new recipes to share but if my creativity runs out for things to be made with ingredients I already own in my pantry I may have to cut back on my blogging. Hopefully it will not come down to that or maybe I can round up some guest posters. I wonder what’s in my closet that I could sell on ebay… haha.

Makes ten 3 ounce popsicles

Ingredients:

1/2 lb. frozen raspberries (or try strawberries)

Directions:

  1. In a food processor combine raspberries, 2 tablespoons of sugar and 1/4 cup of yogurt. Blend until smooth*. Using a spoon (or pipe), pour into popsicle molds, insert popsicle sticks and freeze for 30 minutes.
  2. In a small bowl, combine 1/4 cup yogurt, 1/2 tablespoon sugar, and the heavy cream. Take out popsicles and spoon or pipe into popsicle molds. Freeze for 30 minutes.
  3. Again in the food processor combine blueberries, 2 tablespoons sugar and 1/4 cup of yogurt. Blend until smooth*.Β Take out popsicles and spoon or pipe into popsicle molds and place in the freezer until fully frozen.

This looks so refreshing!! And I know what you mean, sometimes I have to change what I’m going to cook/blog about especially toward the end of the month if I am getting close to the end of my grocery budget for the month.

How very cool. I loved the red white and blue rocket Popsicles when I was a kid, but that sugar water had nothing on these. Using fruit and yogurt is awesome.

These popsicles are gorgeous, Erin! And healthy too? Major bonus. Wedding season is crazy expensive, isn’t it? Luckily most of our friends are married at this point but it was insane for a few years.
