Tips/Tricks

If the consistency of your fruit mixture is thin and the Popsicle stick won’t stand up, freeze the popsicles for approximately 30 minutes until the fruit is slushy and slightly thickened. Then, add the sticks and replace in the freeze to continue hardening.

Consider other fruit and yogurt combinations

Mango with strawberry Greek yogurt
Blueberries with lemon Greek yogurt
Strawberries with peach Greek yogurt
Mixed berries and vanilla Greek yogurt

Did you know: 1 cup of blackberries has about 8 grams of fiber. Fiber not only helps maintain our GI health but may also play a role in improving our immune system.
