Homemade Fruit Popsicles

Diva Entertains Blackberry Popsicle

Quite honestly, it never crossed my mind to make popsicles.  I tend to be a chocolate, dough or frosting fiend so popsicles didn’t naturally ‘call to me’.  But then I came across this recipe and something about it told me I just had to make it.  I think it was the mix of blackberries and honey but then again, it could have been the yogurt mixed in.  Whatever it was I’m glad that I did.  Because they are, in a word, delicious!

However, if blackberries aren’t your thing, or perhaps you want to try them with several other flavors, substitute 18 ounces of any fruit that you would like!

I found popsicle molds at my grocery store, however, I’ve also seen them at craft stores and retailers such as Target, K-Mart and Walmart.

Blackberry, Honey and Yogurt Popsicles (Bon Appetit, Summer 2010)

Makes 10 popsicles

  • 2/3 cup water
  • 2/3 cup sugar
  • 3 (6 oz) packages of Blackberries
  • 1 cup plain yogurt (I used “Greek Style”)
  • 5 tsp. honey
  • 4 tsp. fresh lemon juice
  • ice pop molds for 10 pops
  • 10 ice pop or lollipop sticks, if not included with molds

  1. Bring 2/3 cups water and sugar to boil in small saucepan over medium-high heat, stirring until sugar dissolves.  Transfer simple syrup to small bowl and chill until cold, about 1 hour.
  2. Place blackberries in processor; puree until smooth. Pour blackberry puree into strainer set over medium bowl. Using rubber spatula, press on solids to extract as much puree as possible. Discard seeds in strainer. Measure 2 cups blackberry puree and place in another medium bowl for pops (reserve any remaining puree for another use). Add chilled simple syrup, yogurt, honey, and lemon juice to puree; whisk to blend.
  3. Divide mixture among 10 molds (each about 1/3- to 1/2-cup capacity). Top with mold cover, if available, and insert stick into each. (If cover is not available, cover top of mold with plastic wrap, pulling taut; freeze until partially frozen, then insert stick into center of plastic wrap and into pop mixture in each.) Freeze pops until firm, at least 8 hours or overnight.
  4. Dip bottom of mold into hot water 10 to 15 seconds to loosen pops. Remove pops from molds and serve.

    These look great. I’m going to try them with rasberries – my all-time favorite fruit. Thanks, Debra, for the picture and recipe.
