It’s hard to believe that in a week we’ll be packing up the car and heading up to our friends’ cottage for Canada Day weekend! And all of our friends to the south will be celebrating the 4th of July soon too!
In honour of the festivities, I made some colourful popsicles made with crushed berries and my favourite coconut greek yogurt. Not only are the fun to serve up, their also a healthy alternative to storebought popsicles.
They’re a great treat to cool off this summer. Although, it hasn’t really gotten hot enough here to need to cool off, I do enjoy having a delicious frozen treat ready in the freezer to enjoy…even if I am wearing a sweater.
What you’ll need:
- Coconut Greek Yogurt
- Strawberries and Raspberries
- Popsicle Molds
To make 4th of July popsicles, I took a bowl of red berries and a bowl of blueberries and used a mojito muddler to mash them both up. You could use a fork too.
For the greek yogurt layers, I used this awesome coconut greek yogurt by Olympic. It’s the same yogurt that I fell in love with at the Toronto Green Living Show in Toronto. It’s thick, rich and creamy – perfect for making flavourful popsicles.
Then it is just a matter of layering the yogurt with the berries in the popsicle molds, leave some room at the top for expansion. Pop them in the freezer for 6 hours and you have yourself some healthy, homemade frozen yogurt popsicles!
These would be a great prop for a photo opportunity with little kids at your 4th of July or Canada Day picnic. Can’t you just picture them all lined up with popsicles dripping down their shirts? So cute!
I made these popsicles colourful for the summer holidays, but you can use any combination of yogurt flavours and fruit. A nice vanilla yogurt layered with pureed peaches would be awesome. You could also make these with different fruit colours for any holiday or birthday.
