Blueberry & Greek Yoghurt Popsicles

Jul 31, 2014

Blueberry & Greek Yoghurt Popsicles
I have a love/hate relationship with popsicles. My ridiculously sensitive teeth cannot handle clamping down onto a chilled block of flavoured ice. Even now as I'm writing, I can feel the chill of that painful sensation trickling down the back of my spine like someone just ran their un-filed nails across a blackboard. *shudders*

However... because this recipe uses greek yoghurt, there's less ice and more "cream", and that makes it easier to eat for me.

Ingredients
  • 1 cup Greek yogurt
  • ¼ cup milk
  • 4 tablespoons honey
  • ½ cup frozen or fresh blueberries

Instructions
  1. Pour milk into yogurt gradually and mix. You can increase or decrease the amount of milk depending on the thickness of the Greek yogurt you are using. Just make sure it’s loose enough to spoon into the molds.
  2. Add in honey and mix. Taste it and decide if you like the sweetness. You might want to increase it if you like it sweeter.
  3. Place blueberries on the bottom of molds, share half the yogurt mixture, toss in some more blueberries. 
  4. Place the sticks in each mold. Divide the rest of yogurt mixture into molds and finally top with blueberries gently pressing on each.
  5. Freeze for about 5 hours or overnight.
