I'm always on the lookout for a new frozen treat and these Berry Yogurt Pops were just the ticket!
I've been meaning to share these with you for a while and I have a long list of reasons why I am slow at getting around to it. It is summer and my side business has really taken off. I find myself lacking the motivation to get the recipes posts together.
Another fact is that it has been too hot to cook. I cooked a turkey breast in the crock pot a few days ago and we've been eating turkey sandwiches. Not fancy turkey sandwiches mind you, just regular. Not too exciting. I love baking up pies and cakes and especially cookies, but when it's 105 degrees I just can't bear to turn on the oven.
I bought blackberries in hopes of making a cobbler. Instead I made popsicles. I made Berry Yogurt Pops with fresh berries, yogurt and a little squeeze of lime juice. No extra sugar and no fat, still yet they were cool, refreshing and delicious. Have I mentioned that Braum's is 5 minutes from my house? Holy ice cream, man. I need a skinny distraction every now and again.
Emmet didn't love these as much as I did because of the blackberry seeds. You could use blueberries and avoid the seeds, if you like. I kind of like the crunch from the seeds.
I have hopes of getting all organized and efficient but that remains to be seen. I have some super awesome stuff planned for this month so be sure to check in. I promise it will be worth your while!
Until then let's cool off with guilt-free Berry Yogurt Pops!
Berry Yogurt Pops
- 1 cup blackberries
- 1 cup sliced strawberries
- 1 cup no-fat Greek vanilla yogurt
- juice of ½ lime
Place all ingredients into a blender and blend until smooth. Pour into popsicle molds and freeze at least 4 hours.
*Also makes a pretty good smoothie if you can't wait for the freezing time.
