When I went to visit my friend Kristin she made homemade kefir popsicle. My 2-year-old daughter was absolutely loving them. It inspired me to make a batch of my own pops- with some added fruit.
It’s being summer in Buffalo, and after 8 months of being mostly trapped indoors, I’m so thankful we are finally are getting some nice warm weather. These pops are a great warm weather treat! Take the kiddos outside with these, if the kids get messy just hose ’em off.
Organic ingredients: (make ~4 pops)
1/3 cup raspberries
1/3 cup blueberries
1-2 cups vanilla or flavored yogurt, the amount used will vary depending on the size of your popcicle mold. I used strawberry yogurt but any flavor would work.
Blend together raspberries and 2 tbsps yogurt together and pour into dish and set aside.
Blend together blueberries and 2 tbsps yogurt together and add mixture into a dish. (Or just pour them into the molds as you go and save on 2 messy dishes.
Layer the Popsicle molds with a red layer then the blue layer, and then fill the rest of your popsicle mold with yogurt.
Budget Crunch** do you have a lot of extra fruit salad ?? Did you buy too much fruit and you won’t be able to eat it all before it goes bad? This is the perfect way to use up your fruit. Once they’re frozen, they’re just waiting to be enjoyed.
These are perfect patriotic pops for the 4th of July. I love these pops so much, I am going to play with the layers and mix up the ingredients. My favorite part was the raspberry later so I will be trying an all raspberry frozen yogurt pop soon.
I would also try beets juice or carrot juiceIl mixed with yogurt. I love playin around with easy recipes that are healthful and fun for the kids. Bonus, the kids love them too. Enjoy!
