How to Make Honey Yogurt Berry Pops
A quick, simple honey recipe to use when you need a cool-down. This Honey Yogurt Pop recipe mimics those delicious (but unhealthy) ice pops of our childhood.
Beekeepers are always interested in finding recipes using honey. We tend to have excess honey on hand and want to put it to good use.
Although honey is sugar, it is a natural sugar that is probably better for you than regular cane sugar – or heaven forbid – high fructose corn syrup!
Long hot Southern Summers are the motivation for this quick treat. The ingredients can vary and substitutions are welcome.
Honey Yogurt Pop Recipe:
- 2 ounces of raw honey (by volume)
- 2 cups of blueberries (substitute fruit you like)
- 2 cups of plain (or vanilla) Greek Yogurt
Gather your ingredients. You will need a spoon, measuring cup, large bowl and a set of pop molds. Any size or style of molds will work fine.
Step 1: Measure 2 cups of berries. Mine were frozen so I allowed them to thaw and rinsed first. Put berries in a large bowl.
I choose to use blueberries because I had them in the freezer. You can choose any type of fruit you desire. Strawberry, watermelon and blackberries are good ones to consider.
Step 2: Measure 2 oz of raw honey. Pour it into the bowl with berries and gently stir until berries are coated.
Step 3: Add 2 cups of Greek Yogurt to the berry mixture and stir carefully until all ingredients are combined.
Step 4: Spoon the mixture into your honey yogurt pop cups. Leave enough room for expansion and to push the handle into the mold.
Be sure to clean off any excess mixture that may be around the rim. Then fit the tops on securely.
Step 5: Place the filled honey pops in the freezer for several hours.
Remove from the freezer when the pops are firm. If necessary, rinse the mold under warm water for a few seconds to facilitate removal.
Now, all you have to do is enjoy this delicious healthy Summer treat. Use this Honey Yogurt Pop Recipe as a way to integrate honey into your diet.
