Ingredients:

  • 1 ½ cups (233g) fresh or frozen (and defrosted) blueberries

  • 1 ½ cups (375g) fresh or frozen (and defrosted) raspberries

  • 1 tablespoon (21g) honey

  • 1 cup (227g) nonfat vanilla Greek yogurt (we used “Chobani”)

Extra equipment: 

Instructions:

  1. Using a blender or food processor puree the blueberries along with 1-2 tablespoons of water. Set aside.

  2. Puree the raspberries and honey together until smooth.

  3. Divide the raspberry puree evenly among the 6 popsicle molds (about 2 tablespoons per mold).

  4. Spoon the Greek yogurt on top the raspberry puree, adding 2 tablespoons per mold.

  5. Lastly, gently spoon the blueberry puree on top of the Greek yogurt, dividing evenly among the 6 molds (about 2 tablespoons per mold). 

  6. Don’t worry if the layers mix slightly. You can also swirl the layers together using a knife or skewer for a more marbled look.

  7. Freeze for about 2 hours, gently stick a popsicle stick in each popsicle, and then freeze at least 6 hours or overnight until firm.

  8. Hold the popsicles under warm running water for 5-10 seconds to help release the popsicles from their molds. Enjoy immediately or freeze in a zip-top freezer safe bag.
