Berries + Cream Popsicles
Hot summer days call for a refreshing treat. There’s just something about a popsicle that brings me right back to my childhood + they really are one of the easiest [+ tastiest!] treats to cool off! There are also MANY different kinds of variations you can make [look out for more posts to come on this ; ). Popsicle molds are such a great investment — once you make one, you’ll be dying to make more. You can find popsicle molds just about anywhere. I found mine at the dollar store + they work great!
1 cup Honey Greek Yogurt
1.5 cups Coconut Water
1.5 cups Watermelon
1 cup Raspberries
½ cup Blueberries
½ cup Blackberries
#1] Using a blender, blend the watermelon + raspberries + ¾ cup of coconut water until smooth! *You can add as much//little of this as you want — this helps to add a refreshing flavor + blend the fruit!
#2] Rinse the blender + blend blackberries + blueberries + remaining amount of coconut water.
#3] Grab the popsicle molds + pour in a small amount of the *blue mixture* into half of the popsicle molds! Then pour in the *red mixture* into the remaining popsicle molds. Place in the freeze for 1-2 hours, or until the fruit mixture is firm!
#4] Now, layer the Greek Yogurt on top!
*TIP: use a ziploc bag + put in about 1 cup Greek yogurt. Cut the tip off one of the corners of the ziploc — this helps control the greek yogurt + prevent it from going everywhere.
#5] Pour the remaining fruit mixture over the greek yogurt [be sure to put the opposite color of what is on the bottom of the mold on top — so it is *red, white + blue!]. Place in the freezer for about 2-3 hours or until the popsicle is completely frozen!
#6] When they are completely frozen, remove the mold by placing it under warm water for a few seconds + using a butter knife to remove from the side.
7] ++ ENJOY IMMEDIATELY [… because the fruit mixture melts very quickly! ; )]
