It's summer!!! Okay, well maybe for a few days now, but in my book summer starts when the kids finish school. That day was today. I remember being a kid and the last day of school felt like never ending freedom. I am sure everyone can relate to that feeling. So, we are a bunch of happy campers in this house today. Ask me how I feel come mid August and I might be singing a different tune. For today, I am going to bask in the freedom and happiness.
I have been making various popsicles and ice creams lately but never seem to get them photographed to make them onto the blog. This afternoon I got myself a bit more organized and managed to take a few snaps before we ate them. Thankfully! These are really fresh and delicious. I love anything frozen when it is a zillion degrees outside, and if it happens to be healthy, well you can't argue with that.
Note: This is not a sponsored post, I simply like the Zoku Quick Pop Maker and all the opinions below are my own.
I made these frozen pops in a Zoku Quick Pop Maker. If you have no clue what that is, click here to check it out. It literally takes minutes, I mean like 5 minutes to freeze! It is so easy to use, look after and store. I love it! You can just as easily use the old fashioned popsicle makers and freeze them in the freezer. But I gotta' say, I am a little bit is love with this no freeze quick freeze one. Great for impatient people like me!
I hand chopped the berries and stirred them into the yoghurt mixture. If you prefer, you could put all the ingredients in a food processor and pulse for about 30 seconds. It will give you the same texture.
Raspberry & Blueberry Frozen Yoghurt Pops
Makes 6 / Prep time: 10 minutes / Freeze time: 6 - 8 hours
1 Cup/240 ml Greek yoghurt
1/2 Cup/120 ml water
1 Cup/125 grams fresh blueberries
1 Cup/125 grams fresh raspberries
1 Teaspoon vanilla extract
1 Tablespoon sugar
Put the berries on a large chopping board and finely chop them with a knife. You want pretty fine pieces, so chop until they are quite small. Make sure you don't let the juice drain off the chopping board as you are cutting them. If it is draining away, collect it in a bowl.
In a large bowl, add the yoghurt, water, vanilla and sugar. Mix to combine and stir in chopped berries. Have ready 6 popsicle moulds and evenly fill them to the top. Put in freezer until frozen. Depending on temperature of freezer, will take between 6 - 8 hours.
