Raspberry Cream Greek Yogurt Pops

These popsicles are everything I love about summers. One of my favorite memories growing up were of picnicking at Lake Geneva.
Every summer my family would pack up the minivan and take the two hour drive from a little suburb outside of Chicago to Lake Geneva, Wisconsin. Every year we completed the trip in the same.exact.way. Regardless of how tired we were. There was no going home before we got our fruit popsicles. I don’t know why, but those milky pops always tasted better than the ones that came off the ice cream truck that circled our neighborhood.
– You can use your favorite berries: blueberries, raspberries, blackberries, strawberries, or mix them all!
– sugar is optional: I used a vanilla greek yogurt that wasn’t very sweet and my berries were tart, so I added the sugar. Test your greek yogurt for sweetness. If It’s sweet enough for your taste, omit the sugar.
– Greek yogurt: Try different flavors! I used vanilla because it pairs beautifully with raspberries. Try using coconut flavored, key lime, or what ever you like! The possibilities are endless!
– Mixing: I like the marble effect that barely mixing the ingredients gives. It also gives a good variation in flavor, from the sweet yogurt and the tart berries. If you want the fruit yogurt bars to be consistent in flavor from bite to bite, just mix the ingredients completely.
A few of my favorite things join forces today in this cold, creamy greek yogurt pop. Greek yogurt and berries are always part of my daily intake. Usually in the form of a detox smoothie. But today, i’m blending the two together to create a delicious special treat that’s waistline friendly. Pretty yogurt pops that taste good and skinny? I’ll take two, thanks.
I wonder if I’ll ever get over my love of summer picnics and fruit pop traditions.
Doubtful. But that’s not necessarily a bad thing.
- 12 oz fresh or frozen raspberries
- 1/4 cup + 2 tablespoons granulated sugar
- 2 1/4 cups vanilla greek yogurt (any fat content, 0%,1%, or 2%)
- 1/4 cup heavy cream (half and half works too)
- In a medium bowl, combine the raspberries with 2 tablespoons of sugar and let sit for 5 minutes. In the meantime, prepare the yogurt mix. Combine the 1/4 cup sugar, vanilla yogurt, and heavy cream in a large bowl. Whisk the mixture until all the sugar dissolves completely. Using a fork, mash the raspberries until they break down. Add the raspberries to the yogurt mixture. Using a spatula just fold the raspberries in for a marbled effect. This will provide both sweet and tart bites. Alternately, you can combine the raspberries with yogurt until an even color forms. This will result in an even flavor distribution.
- Pour the mixture into the ice pop molds. Cover molds and insert popsicle sticks. Freeze for at least 4 hours or overnight. Remove from molds and serve immediately.
