I have been all about the yogurt pops this summer. Currently in the freezer are some peach rosemary pops. I also made strawberry balsamic mascarpone yogurt pops. I think banana peanut butter popsicles might be coming up next. I love it! It’s a perfect dessert, and doesn’t make you feel too terrible because it’s mostly fruit and yogurt. It’s dessert that’s good for you!
To nitpick – Popsicle isn’t copyrighted but rather trademarked (you usually can’t get copyright protection words, although you can trademark them) but you could probably still use it here as it’s not commercial.
We have been living on Molly (Orangette)’s raspberry-yogurt pops, which I hand to my kids like lunch (two? sure!). They are fiendishly good, and battle the heat. But where oh where did you get that mold? Dish!
must be the year of the popsicle:) i have been making green smoothie versions with spinach, bananas, peaches and agave nectar for sweetener…a good way to sneak some veggies and whole fruit into toddlers!! these blackberry yogurt ones look luscious!! and are now on the farmers market shopping list! thanks-
Just got this same mold and after a thumbs down to my “I-just-opened-the-box-and-now-I-want-instant-pops” orange juice + vanilla yogurt concoction, I”m desperate for real ideas – this is #1, then some of the ones mentioned above – we could seriously start a whole other blog for these this summer – Midwest = mug-gy.
Thanks for sharing this tasty inspirational recipe. I’m trying desperately to put calcium and fresh fruit in my picky preteen’s stomach. We’ve been secretly dicing and mincing tons of fruits and veggies in all kinds of stuff, but the lil sucker is so clever…Question:
I don’t own a food processor. I do have a blender and a cheap manual dicer/chopper. I imagine the juice would make quite a deep red mess. Can I cheat with fruit juice and just add some diced berries to humor myself? Has anyone tried that? Or can I get away with using my dicer? I’ve always wanted a pink one anyway lol.
My guess is that either they were not frozen enough, or you didn’t leave in hot water long enough. As long as they were frozen solid, you should try leaving them in hot water for 15-30 seconds. keep trying until they release.
We cried when we ate the last two pops. I couldn’t believe the price of blackberries. I paid $16 for them in FL but I made 1 1/2 x the recipe. I got 6 huge popsicles and had a pint left. I made a quart of (barely) sweet cream ice cream and poured 2 oz of the blackberry “syrup” between the layers as I packed it into containers. We had a few small scoops for dessert tonight. OMG!!
Thank u so much for sharing ur awesome recipe. Followed it blueberries as i didn’t have blackberries…. The result was too good…my daughter and husband loved those icecream. … I am super satisfied …. thanks again…. keep sharing ☺☺
