I bought myself a popsicle mould! It's been on my to-do list for SO long but I didn't want to buy just another piece of plastic to clog up my kitchen drawers unless I really needed it. Then summer came and I decided I really did need it.
Plus it turns out, making popsicles is super fun! These beauties only take 3 ingredients and are less than 150 calories. They are creamy and fruity and will satisfy that 8pm dessert craving - I promise! We aren't about counting calories around here but even I can admit, a low cal snack is always good to have on hand.
I'm counting down the days because in two weeks we have a long weekend at the beach - wohoo! It's a little getaway to keep us going and will be right before my husband starts his new fancy pants job as a l-a-w-y-e-r. I still love saying that.
My husband the lawyer. What a guy! It has been so long since I've been to the beach, I'm pretty excited to soak up the sunshine, go for beach walks and most importantly eat good food. We plan on eating the best burgers and ice cream on the coast.
I love having a sweet treat after dessert. Granted I can't have a piece of Cookie Dough Ice Cream Cake every night but even something small will make my day. Like these super easy berry pops! They satisfy ALL my dessert cravings for less than 150 calories - winning.
And I KNOW its completely out of season for those of you experiencing the chills of winter but I'm sweating buckets because its summer over here. Oh and just in case i've got you worried, here's a sneak peak of a juicy over-the-top treat coming on Monday!
Mixed Berry Yogurt Popsicles
Makes 6 popsicles
225 grams (2 cups) frozen mixed berries
2 tablespoons caster sugar
375 grams (1 and 1/2 cups) greek yogurt
Place your frozen berries in a large mixing bowl and leave for 10-15 minutes or until they start to thaw. Then add the sugar and squish the berries using a fork until they are soft and juicy. Next, add two thirds of the berries to the greek yogurt and lightly mix through - try to keep the pretty swirls! Then fill each popsicle mould 3/4 full with the yogurt mixture, before adding a teaspoon or two of the berries on top (be careful not overfill them). Finally, add the pop sticks and freeze overnight.
