popsicles

What better treat on a hot summer day than an ice-cold popsicle!  Here I have two different flavors. The first is a fresh and tangy Creamy Berry & Lemon combo.  The second is “PBBJ,” a play on everyone’s favorite PB&J, with an extra “B” for a twist! 

Creamy Berry & Lemon Popsicles

Servings: 8 to 10 pops

Creamy Berry & Lemon Popsicles

Ingredients

  • 2 cups higher fat plain Greek or coconut yogurt (I used 8% Greek)
  • 1 Tbsp fresh lemon juice
  • zest from one lemon
  • 1 tsp pure vanilla extract (optional)
  • 2 Tbsp collagen peptides (optional, omit for vegan)
  • 2+ Tbsp sugar-free confectioners or sweetener of choice, adjusted to taste
  • 2 cups fresh blackberries
  • 1 Tbsp Flora Elderberry Crystals
  • 1 Tbsp Flora Mānuka Honey or other sweetener, adjusted to taste

Instructions

  1. In a medium bowl, whisk together yogurt, lemon juice, lemon zest, vanilla, and collagen. Add confectioners’ sugar (or other sweetener) to taste.
  2. Add blackberries, elderberry crystals, and honey to a blender container and blend on high. Add additional honey (or other sweetener) to taste.*
  3. Spoon about 2 tsp lemon yogurt into each popsicle mold. Top with 2 tsp berry purée. Continue to layer alternating 2 tsp lemon yogurt and 2 tsp blackberry elderberry purée until nearly full. Tap each mold to make sure the layers settle.
  4. Insert a chopstick or thin skewer into each popsicle and stir a couple of times to create a swirled pattern
  5. Freeze for 6 hours or overnight.
