Equipment

Ingredients

  • 1 cup vanilla yogurt
  • 1 cup hulled strawberries
  • 1 cup blueberries
  • 2 teaspoons lemon juice divided

Instructions

  • Set 1 c vanilla yogurt aside. Add 1 c hulled strawberries to high powered blender. Blend until smooth. Add lemon juice to taste (I added 1 tsp). Pour into bowl, set aside. Rinse blender out.
  • Add 1 c blueberries to blender, blend until smooth. Add lemon juice to taste (I added about 1 tsp). Pour into bowl and set aside.
  • Layer in blueberry puree, then yogurt, then strawberry puree into each mold. Fill until almost the top.
  • Place popsicle sticks in each mold and swirl ingredients to get some marbling if desired.
  • Place mold in the freezer for at least 5 hours.
  • Remove mold from freezer immediately before serving. Run mold under warm water to release popsicles. Enjoy immediately.

Notes

  • If you're traveling for more than 20 or so minutes, I'd recommend placing the ice pops in their mold in a cooler with some ice in it. If it's less than 20 minutes, & you have access to a freezer they'll refreeze pretty quickly to be ready to eat after dinner.
