Berry Swirl Popsicles

There are so many wonderful things about summertime; warm weather, beach days and of course, icy treats. While some (many) may argue that there’s no such thing as too much ice cream, sometimes a fruity snack is far more satisfying on a hot summers day. This recipe is really versatile, so you can swap out fruits, toppings and even opt for a low-fat natural alternative, if you’re looking for a healthier option.

What You Need

Popsicle moulds
Paddle pop sticks

Ingredients

1 cup of vanilla Greek yogurt
1/3 cup of milk
1 tsp of honey
Fresh berries (strawberries, blueberries, strawberries, blackberries – mashed)

Optional:
Granola
Crushed nuts

Method

1. Place the yoghurt, milk and honey into a bowl and stir until combined.
2. Mash the fruit using a fork and be sure to use separate bowls if you have more than one type.
3. Add small amounts of the fruit into the yoghurt and gently swirl the two together.
4. Spoon the mixture into the popsicle mould and leave some space if you’d like to add granola or crushed nuts on the end.
5. Place the paddle pop stick into the center of the mould, making sure that you leave enough room at the end of the stick to hold.
6. Freeze the popsicles for five hours, or until set completely.

Notes

  • For a healthier treat, you can use low fat Greek yoghurt and skim milk but be sure to add extra honey as a sweetener.
  • Any type of fruit will work with this recipe and you can add as much or as little as you like, depending on your personal taste.
  • Use crushed nuts or granola to add a little crunch to your summer snack.
  • When removing the popsicles, run the mould under cold water for a few moments so you can slide them out with ease.
