Canada Day And Evening Snacks Recipes

Ingredients

  • About 2 heaping cup strawberries or raspberries
  • 1 cup vanilla flavoured Greek yogurt

Instructions

  1. Using a blender, puree the berries until smooth. Set aside.
  2. Put the yogurt and the berry purees in small measuring cups with spouts.
  3. Thin each out a bit with water so they can be poured easily.
  4. I would suggest starting with only 2 or 3 layers
  5. Let’s assume we are doing 3: start by pouring berries into each mold to fill up about 1/3 of the way.
  6. Put the mold in the freezer and freeze till firm (about an hour)
  7. Pour yogurt into each mold for the next stripe (mold should now be about 2/3 of the way full).
  8. Depending on type of mold you are using now is the time to insert the sticks. Make sure to get the stick a little bit into the frozen layer so they will stand straight. Put back into the freezer until solid.
  9. Add the last berry stripe to fill the mold and put back in freezer.
  10. Once completely frozen solid, you can un-mold your pops.
  11. Keep the popsicles in the mold until you are ready to serve.
