Frozen Berry and Yogurt Creamsicles
Who says you can't have a popsicle for breakfast? The granola is an optional ingredient, nevertheless its still got all the makings of a great fun breakfast. Consider it a frozen smoothie.
- 2 cups ripe fruit/berries of your choice
- ¼ cup honey or sweetener of your choice (i.e.: sugar, agave or maple syrup)
- 1 cup Greek yogurt* (you may need to thin it with a little milk)
- ½ cup granola, optional
- Puree or mash your fruit until smooth. Sweeten to taste with honey (use your own judgment here. If you like it a little sweeter, add a little more, or if you like it tangier, add a little less). Strain fruit/berries through a fine sieve if there are seeds
- Whisk together yogurt and 2 tbsp honey. Yogurt should be thick but pourable, so you may need to thin it with a little milk. Taste and add more honey if desired.
- Scoop out ¼ cup of the yogurt mixture and mix with the granola if using. This will help the granola freeze into popsicles.
- Arrange 6 popsicle molds on a flat surface. Pour sweetened yogurt into the bottom of each mold. Add a scoop of granola if using then a layer of fruit puree. Continue layering yogurt, granola and fruit until the molds are filled. Gently swirl mixture with popsicle stick to create a marble effect then insert stick into mold, and freeze until solid, at least 6 hours. To unmold, suspend the popsicle molds in a bowl of hot water just until the popsicles are loosened.
*We like to use a non-fat Greek yogurt for its low water content and creamier mouthfeel. More water equals an icier pop.
