It’s HOT outside! It’s time to make Frozen Yogurt and Fruit Pops.

With temperatures soaring outside, it’s
time to turn off the oven and focus on the freezer.  

It’s berry season around here so blueberries, strawberries,
raspberries, and blackberries are abundant, sweet, and very reasonably priced.

Peaches,
cherries, and other summer fruits will be ready soon, and they’ll be just as
delicious in this recipe.

I combed the aisles of my local market to find one of those
cute popsicle molds with the idea of making frozen yogurt and fruit pops.

My recipe yields 5 to 6 pops, depending on how much you
fill each section, but the only mold I could find makes four pops at a
time.  Since I had some fruity yogurt
left over, I was forced to sample what I couldn’t freeze!

Here’s how to make these very refreshing frozen delights …

Frozen Yogurt and Fruit Pops

Yields 5 to 6 fruit pops
Yogurt-fruit pop ingredients

Ingredients:

1 cup plain Greek-style yogurt (2% or whole milk)
1 cup of your favorite fresh or frozen berries or summer
fruit (peaches, mangoes, cherries, etc. – pitted, of course!)
1 tsp. fresh lemon juice
2 to 3 Tbsp. honey (amount will vary depending on sweetness
of fruit – or your own sweet tooth)

Directions:

1. Purée yogurt, berries/fruit of your choice, lemon juice
and honey in food processor, using the metal ‘S’-blade, until smooth. If you
prefer chunkier pieces of fruit, pulse rather than purée.

 2. Transfer yogurt-fruit
mixture to freezer-pop molds, leaving about ½ to 1-inch of space at the top. Insert
the stick that comes with the mold. Freeze until completely firm, about 6
hours.
Ready to freeze

 3. To unmold, dip
mold for a few seconds in a bowl of hot water.
The final product – minus a few bites!


NOTE: Don’t have freezer pop molds?
Use 3oz. or 5 oz. paper cups. After filling each cup, place a sheet of plastic
wrap over top, cut a small slit in center and add a popsicle stick which can be
purchased at craft stores. To remove frozen pop, simply press on the cup’s
bottom, and the frozen pop should slip right out.
