“Oh Popsicle” print by Kelly Ventura | Fruit & Yogurt Popsicles (recipe below)
This past weekend was a scorcher—it reached 80 degrees which, where we live, is pretty summery for this time of the year! We jumped into our bathing suits, ran through the sprinkler for an hour or so, and ate homemade popsicles in the sunshine. Kelly Ventura’s “Oh Popsicle” print inspired the homemade-popsicles idea and I made them with swirls of raspberry purée, orange juice, and Greek yogurt. They were a big hit with everyone in the family, young and old alike. Beautiful, delicious, easy to make, and good for you? Yes, please!

Fruit & Yogurt Popsicles
Sugar (totally optional and maybe unnecessary)
Honey-flavored Greek yogurt
Puree the raspberries in a blender or food processor. I made eight popsicles and used about a cup of raspberries. Add the sugar if necessary. It totally depends on how sweet your raspberries are. Ours weren’t sweet at all, so I added a spoonful of sugar. Fill the popsicles molds 1/3 of the way full with raspberry puree. Add a spoonful of greek yogurt to the molds, and top off with orange juice. Use a bamboo skewer to stir and swirl the popsicles gently. If you are using popsicle molds with handles, add those and place the popsicles in the freezer for several hours until frozen. If you are using popsicle molds (or paper cups) that don’t have handles, freeze the popsicles until just slushy, then add popsicle sticks and freeze until firm.
