Berry Yogurt Popsicles

(From Skinny Taste)

I can’t wait to make these this week!! For the yogurt, I’m going to use my Easy DIY Greek Yogurt.

Ingredients:

For the purple:

  • 1 cup blueberries
  • 1/2 cup blackberries
  • 6 oz fat free blueberry yogurt
  • 1 cup crushed ice

For the white:

  • 14 oz fat free vanilla yogurt
  • 2 tbsp agave or sugar
  • 1 cup crushed ice

For the pink:

  • 3/4 cup raspberries
  • 3/4 cup strawberries
  • 6 oz fat free strawberry yogurt
  • 1 cup crushed ice
Directions:

Step 1: Blend each color smoothie separately in a blender and set aside 

Step 2: Pour the pink mixture into the popsicle mold, until about 1/3rd of the way up. Freeze for 30 minutes. Remove from the freezer and insert the sticks, then freeze one hour.

Step 3: Add the white yogurt into each popsicle mold 1/3 of the way and freeze an additional hour.

Step 4: Add the purple smoothie and fill it to the top of the mold and freeze until ready to eat.

 

Tips for Keeping Berries Fresh

I wanted to share with you some tips I’ve learned lately about keeping berries fresh: vinegar wash.

When you first bring you berries home, prepare a mixture of one part apple cider vinegar and ten parts water. I chose to use:

- 1/3 c. apple cider vinegar
- 3 1/3 c. water

Dump your berries into the mixture and swirl. Drain, rinse with water and put it back in the fridge. Easy!

 

The vinegar kills any mold spores and other bacteria that might be on the fruit. Raspberries will last a week or more, and strawberries will be good for almost two weeks!!
