Ingredients:

Strawberry Blueberry Frozen Pops:

1/2 cup (100 grams) granulated white sugar

1/2 cup (120 ml/grams) water

1/2 pound (225 grams) fresh strawberries, coarsely chopped

1/2 pound (225 grams) fresh blueberries

1/4 cup (60 ml/grams) blueberry or strawberry yogurt (or another flavor of yogurt)


Instructions:

Strawberry Blueberry Frozen Pops: Place the sugar and water in a small saucepan and bring to a boil. Let the mixture boil for about one minute or until the sugar dissolves. Remove from heat and let cool to room temperature. (The sugar syrup can be made ahead, covered, and stored in the refrigerator for about two weeks.)

Next, wash the berries and then coarsely chop the strawberries. Place in the bowl of your food processor or blender and process until they are pureed. Add the sugar syrup and yogurt and pulse to combine. Pour the mixture into your popsicle molds (Available on Amazon) and freeze for about 8 hours (or overnight) or until frozen.

Makes about 8 - 10 Frozen Peach Pops (depending on the size of your molds). Preparation time 15 minutes


Description:

Summers are very long and very hot where I live. Since my air conditioner is running almost constantly, I try to use my oven as little as possible. That means, instead of baking cakes to satisfy my sweet tooth, I make a lot of icy cold frozen fruit pops. They are so flavorful and wonderfully satisfying. Easy to make, you simply combine fresh strawberries and blueberries, with a sugar syrup and a fruit yogurt.

These frozen fruit pops use a sugar syrup, often referred to as a simple syrup. It is a combination of sugar and water that is heated until the sugar has dissolved. While sugar syrups can be made using different proportions of sugar and water, for this recipe we are using equal weights. You can make the sugar syrup ahead of time as it can be stored in the refrigerator for up to two weeks.
These Frozen Pops are so easy to make. Just process the strawberries and blueberries in your food processor and then add the sugar syrup and yogurt. You can use any flavor of yogurt, but I am partial to either blueberry or strawberry. You can also add one tablespoon of Limencello or Prosecco (Sparkling Wine) for added flavor if you like.
