It’s mid-summer in the northeast and I have a question; are you in the mood for freeze pops too cool things down like I am? I am loving these berry-licious swirl freeze pops. THEY ARE SCRUMPTIOUS and easy to make.
I’ve been telling the children I meet with my summer recipe making travels, that I am in a very berry-licious mood this year! It’s the height of fresh berry season here and I’m in love with their naturally sweet flavors that only have that extra special sweet burst of sweetness at the peek of their summer debut.
Below is my simple, but scrumptiously sweet swirl freeze pop recipe that the kids can make? The swirls from the berry purees happens naturally and the freeze pops are are so much fun to unwrap and discover the emerging designs.
Swirl Freeze Pops by Jodie Fitz
24 oz. Greek Vanilla Yogurt
1 cup raspberries
1 cup blackberries
4 tablespoons honey
1 teaspoon raspberry extract
6 – 5 oz. plastic coated paper cups
6 Craft sticks
Rinse the raspberries. Place the raspberries, 2 tablespoons of honey and ½ teaspoon of raspberry extract into a food processor, mini food process or blender. Chop/blend until it’s almost in a syrup like state; the seeds will even blend into the mix. Set the mixture aside.
Rinse the blackberries. Place the raspberries, 2 tablespoons of honey and ½ teaspoon of raspberry extract into a food processor, mini food process or blender. Chop/blend until it’s almost in a syrup like state; the seeds will even blend into the mix. Set the mixture aside.
Evenly Distribute the raspberry mixture into each cup. Then evenly distribute the Vanilla yogurt into each cup. Top each cup off with the blackberry mixture. Add a craft stick to the center and freeze. The raspberry automatically creates a swirled affect with the weight of the other ingredients.
Freeze the pop overnight. Serve and enjoy.
Note: Craft sticks can be found in the school supply aisle at your Price Chopper and Market 32 Supermarkets.
