    Mixed Berry And Honey Yogurt Popsicle Recipe

    Popsicle are routinely packed with sugar and high fructose corn syrup. As we know, this is not ideal for someone hoping to shed a few pounds. Even the ones that claim to be made with "real fruits" usually have artificial flavors that are detrimental to our health.

    This is why you should make your own! We will show you a super easy way to make a roasted berry honey yogurt popsicle. Berries are packed with antioxidants [1] which are vital to fighting diseases. Load up on these tasty treats and let the berries get to work!

    Ingredients

    • 12 ounces (two small containers) small berries, like blueberries and raspberries
    • 2 teaspoons sugar (preferably turbinado sugar), optional
    • Dash of sea salt
    • 2 tablespoons + ¼ cup honey (to taste)
    • 2 cups whole Greek yogurt (I used Fage)
    • ½ small lemon, juiced

    Preparation

    1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit. Line a rimmed baking sheet with parchment paper. In a medium bowl, gently toss berries with the sugar, a dash of sea salt and 2 tablespoons honey. Pour the berries onto the prepared baking sheet and arrange the berries in a single layer. Roast for 30 minutes, stirring halfway, or long enough for the berry juices to thicken but not burn (watch the edges in particular).
    2. While the fruit is roasting, blend together the Greek yogurt and lemon juice in a medium bowl. Mix in honey to taste, until it is barely sweet enough for your liking (keep in mind that the berries will be very sweet). Add more lemon juice if you want tart popsicles.
    3. Let the berries cool for at least ten minutes, then scrape the berries and all of their juices into the bowl of yogurt. Use a big spoon to gently fold the mixture together (for a marbled effect, do not mix thoroughly).
    4. Use the spoon to transfer the yogurt blend into the popsicle mold and freeze for at least four hours. When you're ready to pop out the popsicles, run warm water around the outsides of the molds for about ten seconds and gently remove the popsicles. Enjoy immediately.
